People Playing With Clouds And Forced Perspective
Cloud watching’s O.K, but these days it’s cloud photography that’s all the rage. We collected these 18 photos of people creating clever and playful photos with clouds to show you just how fun and easy it can be.
In addition to a camera and suitable weather, you’ll need a vivid imagination. You’ll be engaged in pareidolia*, which is our psychological propensity towards giving some sort of meaning to random stimuli (usually images).
Pareidolia* : they are smiling, being angry or amazed. However, what some may call acuteness to detail is usually attributed to a psychological phenomenon, called pareidolia – that’s when a person perceives a random stimulus as something significant, for e.g., sees faces on clouds or buildings.

Postcards for Ants, Artist Creates A Miniature by Lorraine Loots
Cape Town-based artist Lorraine Loots took up a remarkable 365-day challenge: to create a miniature painting every single day for an entire year. The artist began her challenge in the beginning of 2013 and, after enjoying the routine of her successful challenge, she decided to continue with the “Postcards for Ants” project in 2014.
The young artist has dedicated this year’s works exclusively to Cape Town, which happens to be the official World Design Capital of 2014. Fans of Loots’s work can write to the artist and book up-coming paintings or prints, or suggest Cape Town-themed ideas or places for her to paint.
