Architecture of Density
Seven million people are sardine-canned into a mere 1,108 square kilometers of Hong Kong, comprised of 6,588 high rise buildings (several hundred more than in New York City). Hong Kong’s metoric development and population explosion produced these head-spinningly claustrophobic living conditions, photographed here by Michael Wolf. In each picture it’s hard to imagine that anything else exists besides these massive walls, it seems as if the architecture itself has somehow overtaken the world it springs from.
Shark High Five by Paul Spielvogel.
It’s not everyday that we see a smiling shark give a scuba diver a high-five. Eli Martinez, editor of Shark Diver Magazine, was diving in the Caribbean Sea, off the Bahamas coast, when a laid-back lemon shark swam straight towards him before turning at the last second with her fin outstretched, connecting with his hand.
“At first she was swimming straight towards me, but I didn’t expect her to turn at the last moment,” said Martinez.“She tapped my palm with her fin like we were high-fiving. Luckily my friend who owns an underwater camera captured it all on film for me to show the grand kids.”
“Libya’s new regime forces fire their weapons at fighters loyal to fugitive strongman Moammar Gadhafi as a comrade plays a guitar during a battle in Sirte on Oct. 10, in a drive to control Gadhafi’s hometown after a month-long siege”. That is one spoony bard.
