Merging history with today

In these pictures, photographer Sergey Larenkov has layered old photos over his own new ones, and the result is highly interesting. Like seeing ghosts, or looking through a portal to the fourth dimension. Amazing.

See more of these at sergey-larenkov.livejournal.com – well worth a visit!

Thanks, Mr. Buan!

It’s called football, not soccer! OK?

And we’re off!

The 2010 football (I will never sink to calling it ‘soccer’ – NEVER!) World Championship is finally here! Day one gave us a bit of both, with South Africa and Mexico providing proper championship show football – while France and Uruguay showed us how two good teams can match eachother to the result of not entertaining much at all. My money’s on Argentina this year (as it has been every championship year since ’86 to be honest), but most people has had Spain as favourite. No wonder, as they are reigning European champions and are looking very strong. Still, Argentina has Maradona. Ma-ra-do-na. ‘Nuff said.

Here’s a nice little poster showing the development of football technology through World Championship history:

Oil spill perspective

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is a tragedy, very much so. The whole world knows about the situation, we’ve seen more footage than ever before of birds and shorelines drenched in sticky, black raw oil. We’ve read pages up and down about the leak itself, the attempts to stop it and the dire consequences of it. BP will never be remembered for anything else, made sure by thousands of ironic and satirical website articles and images. These past few weeks we’ve really come to understand how terrible this natural disaster is.
There was an article in my local newspaper showing the oil spill as an overlay to a map of my area. Goodness me, I thought.

But what if the oil spill had happened in African waters, for instance? Or in South America? Would I have known about it, seen footage, compared maps, read blog posts? Would I even have remembered the name Deepwater Horizon or known BP was responsible? Probably not.

In any case, there are perspectives to consider now that the internet is going crazy over this. This kind of disaster has happened many times before, and there will be many more in the future. And the Deepwater Horizon tragedy? Well, let’s further compare:

20 years of change – Shanghai skyline then and now

The top photo is taken in 1990, bottom photo earlier this year. Can’t think of anything clever to write, the pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

Former “city” of Kowloon. Insane.

When the English ran Hong Kong there was a portion of the city they could not police, for (probably very complicated) political reasons. Kowloon was without building regulations or law enforcements for years, and where chaos is allowed, chaos grows! The photos of the city-within-city were taken not long before the area was bulldozed upon China regaining the control of Hong Kong. Mind-boggling, incredible.
