"New York from above."

Wow, looks like the American Founding Fathers let their Sim City game get way out of hand!

"Spare a thought for *everyone* inside when you see an ambulance."

Reddit | H_G_Bells

When we lose a loved one, it can be so easy to forget the toll that this can take on the healthcare workers who have been trying to save them. These workers see death so frequently, but it still takes a toll on them, and they should be treated with much more respect than they sometimes are.

"This is without question the finest piece of graffiti I've ever seen."

Reddit | cervantes-loves-ai

It's hard for me to imagine being that good at anything! There are some spectacular artists out there, but this is one of the finest pieces of guerrilla art I have ever seen!

"Someone transform a racist graffiti into something a lot more positive"

Reddit | osriazz

What a fantastic way to correct such hateful rhetoric. The polarising politics at the moment across the UK have lead to a very dark time; however, there is hope, and there are still good people out there fighting against such views.

"I took photos of the sunset for a couple of hours, and I merged 4 photos into one to show the passing of time."

Reddit | then0mads0ul

A mere couple of hours can transform an entire city into a completely different landscape. It is stunning to see it play out in such proximity.

"Two days ago, a chemical plant in Eastern Texas exploded. It's still burning. They've evacuated two towns already."

One on a more somber note now. We live in a time where the impact we have on the environment is being taken more seriously, however, terrifyingly stunning pictures such as these really help to put in perspective the extent of that impact.

Free Climbing Like A Flag

Reddit | splitwheel

This photo is of Dan Osman. It's hard to believe that anyone could have the nerve to do such a thing, it makes my feet turn to jelly just looking at it! Osman sadly died at the age of 35 during a controlled free-fall at Yosemite Park, when his ropes failed.

Thanksgiving During WWII

Reddit | diosmioman

This amazing image shows 2 GIs from the 102nd Division, finding time to take a break and celebrate Thanksgiving on November 23, 1944. They ate their Thanksgiving meal in a shelled house in Geilenkirchen, North Rhine-Westphalia. This should make everyone a little more thankful to be eating in the comfort of their own home, with their family.

"The most challenging painting I've ever done titled 'Recover'"

Reddit | davidambart

While it may not be a conventional picture, I simply couldn't leave this image out. It is a stunning painting that bares such semblance to the considerations of our time; in particular, to do with our place in nature, and how we as a species interact with the natural world.

"After 30 years two brothers return to Chernobyl to find an old friend waiting for them."

Reddit | Dandan419

This one is particularly haunting I think. Returning to your childhood home after so long, only to find it frozen in time must be truly disconcerting.

"Hong Kong Protester looks like a post apocalyptic survivor."

Reddit | CapellaPolaris

The fact that this looks like something out of a Mad Max film really highlights the disparity between the reality of what is happening in Hong Kong, and the reality of everyday life for most of us.

Choose Love


For people who are lucky enough to grow up in places that have moved passed such archaic and hateful rhetoric, it can be hard to imagine that there are still people out there who devote their life to stigmatizing against the happiness of others. These two people should be praised for making such a pure and wonderful statement in the face of hatred.

400-pound sumo wrestler Kelly Gneiting made a promise that he would hold a world record for 'Heaviest Person to Complete a Marathon'. This was him after crossing the finish line at the LA marathon, completing it with a time of 9 hours, 48 minutes, and 42 seconds. What an inspiration!

Moscow — Evolution Tower

Reddit | amicus_of_the_world

One of my favorite buildings on the planet! (And yes, I'm sad enough to have a list, leave me alone!) The Evolution Tower in Moscow was inspired by Auguste Rodin's sculpture, The Kiss, and is supposed to represent interlinking people and generations.

"1400 year old Gingko tree with incredible yellow leaves"

Reddit | smokerking92

This tree must be the exception to the phrase, that which burns twice as bright, burns half as long.

"Age doesn't define swagger"

Reddit | funkyboy543

It feels like nowadays, more so than ever, there is a fear of growing old. Perhaps it is the influence of social media and the fast turnaround of viral media which encourages a culture that gives everything such a short shelf life. However, this man shows that there should be no fear in growing old, as this man who goes by the name Günther Anton Krabbenhöft, was recently termed "The World's Most Fashionable Grandpa" by the Huffington Post. He truly is, king of the hipsters.

Someone commented that this should be changed from to "Real men" to just "Decent people". Everyone deserves respect in this world, without people working jobs such as these, the world would be in chaos.

If this doesn't warm the cockles of your heart then you may well be a legitimate sociopath.
