Viral Video of Girl Snapping a Selfie Combined with Narration from a Nature Documentary

Earlier this year, a woman shot a video of a girl at a swimming pool who spent a considerable amount of time trying to snap the perfect selfie (presumably to share). That (somewhat mean-hearted) video quickly went viral after it was shared online.

dogsair

We’ve featured photos of dogs underwater, mid-shake, during bath time and in the middle of a gratuitous lick… but this is the first set of portraits we’ve seen that capture dogs in-flight.

Well, not quite flight… more like ‘falling with style,’ to borrow a line from Toy Story. Read more…

Looking through photographer Robbie Augspurger‘s portrait portfolio is like digging up a yearbook from the 1980s. Taken using a 30-year-old light kit he stumbled upon a few years back, the images look incredibly authentic as the subjects dress up and play the part to a tee. Read more…
