On Wednesday night, Richmond photographer Meagan Abell posted a set of astounding film photos on Facebook, writing:
Saturday is Independence Day here in the States, and you know what that means: Americans doing wacky things while other Americans take pictures. Join me for a stroll through some delightfully offbeat shots of the past.
My sweet 5-year-old likes to run around naked wearing only a belt, which she ties so that it has a long piece dangling out in front, a piece which she calls her fake penis. She grabs it and shakes it and goes, “fake penis fake penis!” It’s a real gas. I’ve taken a picture of her doing this. I wouldn’t post it on the…
A prolific voyeur at the University of Hawaii at Manoa has been identified after posting pictures of more than 100 women to porn sites, but it turns out that he may have done nothing illegal.
Most of our discussions of catfishing are limited to the catfishers and catfishees, but there's a third category we often forget about: the unwitting catfish-complicit, whose pictures and deets make the catfishing possible, and whose lives also get crappy and complicated when sucked into the mix.
You know how sometimes you take videos when you mean to take selfies on accident and then watch them and want to die a thousand deaths as frame by frame of you getting ready to take a picture rolls by? Me neither. That's the premise of this prank, though, and this dude falls for it EVERY TIME.
This is pretty much the best use of photoshop in a long while.
Not to be outdone by Vogue (who has just discovered that big butts exist in the realm of man and not just in popular fantasy fiction) or Twitter (which launched a campaign to remind Vogue that yes, big butts have always existed), Refinery29 has published a series of 30 REAL butt photos. And they are glorious.
Parents know that checking out an ultrasound for the first time can be a joyous occasion, but it can also be completely unnerving to think of all the things that could possibly go wrong. But when your unborn baby gives you the thumbs up, you can probably relax and just enjoy it.
At first glance, it appears that there's no one naked in Trevor Christensen's collection of nude portraits. The man above is dressed, so are the people in the photos below. So if they're not nude, who is? You'll be surprised, but their expressions might give it away.
This tiny child is very, very sad, because she accidentally deleted a photo of her Uncle Dave and now it is gone and she needs another photo of Uncle Dave, pronto.
A couple got a special treat from some friendly Imgur users who wanted to help them improve their sad, lonely looking vacation photos.
This might be the most fun Instagram account of all time.
The Chicago City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday building upon a previously established Illinois state law that makes it illegal to take photos or videos from beneath a woman.
Photo storage and repurposing site Shutterfly is in a bit of hot water with customers today, after sending an email to many female users congratulating them on the "amazing" accomplishment of "bringing a new life into the world" and dishing out etiquette tips about when it's appropriate to send Thank You cards to…
I'm pretty sure that celebrities who have to take a million (estimated) pictures have probably perfected their expressions, but it's cool to see what it looks like when all the photos are linked together creating a gif collage (is this a thing or did I just make it up?) of the same expression against different…
I know that magazines are not reality and that the image they sell of their models (effortless fun people having fun) is not true. It takes a great deal of time to get the right shot and there's also a lot of uncomfortable posturing that goes on to make that "I was just sunning myself on this pile of rocks" look look…
