I’ve noticed that I’ve really started to develop a passion for photography. If you read some of my other Friday posts you’ll already know about my love of light graffiti but I recently came across these smoke effect pictures on SmashAps which are gorgeous.

Oh yes after a three month (or so) break they’re back, the Random Friday Posts!

This week I thought I’d put together a few things that I’ve found or read about on the internet that I really liked.

1. Light Graffiti Fashion – This was part of Trendhunters top 50 Tech trends of 2009, but this trend is one I really love as I have a think for Light Graffiti.

2. Haagen Dazs Five – With only 5 ingredients there’s now no reason not to indulge on your weekends. Avaliable in Mint, Coffee, Vanilla Bean, Brown Sugar, Milk Chocolate and Passion Fruit.

4.  Funky Tattoos – I saw this on one of my new favourite blogs cakeheadlovesevil, and loved how original the designs were. To see more of Yann Tranvaille’s designs check out Emma’s original post but I really want this one:

Have a good weekend!

I came across this yesterday which fit the randomness theme perfectly…. cow abduction by aliens.

cow abductionA groups of farmers in the US believe that they have found the source of the continuing problem of missing cows – Aliens. The site contains photos and video footage including  re-enactments to warn you all and help you protect your cow(s).

Check it out for your self here www.cowabduction.com. Happy Fridays!

I saw this in the Metro this morning and think that it may be my new favourite type of art. Like most people nowadays I love Banksy’s work and modern graffiti and light graffiti as this is called is amazing.

I can’t remember the name of the artist that appeared in the Metro to give credit to this work so if any one does, please let me know so I can give credit.

They were created by using a long exposure and waving a torch around to create shapes and images in the dark. There are more pictures on the Metro site.

Coincidentally friend Dave (he’s soon going to become legendary on this blog from the amount of times I reference him!) also does this sort of long exposure photography. The below picture was of the traffic by Embankment

With love in the air at this time of year I thought I’d spread it a little bit further….

An island just off Croatia in the shape of a heart has been discovered by users on Google Earth. Since the discovery the owner has be inundated with requests to stay on the island which is currently uninhabited.

I seem to be doubling up on my Random Friday action at the moment but someone just put this on Twitter and it made me laugh so I had to add it. Happy Friday’s I hope your weekends are as good!

In light of the plane crash in New York yesterday the internet has been buzzing with the story of the miracle survival of everyone on the plane, thanks to the amazing skills of the pilot.

Plane Crash

So as you’d expect this has resulted in many posts/ articles on how to survive a plane crash. One I particularly like was from the Telegraph as can be found here, so incase you dont have time to read the full article (you might be boarding a plane as you read this) here’s a few pointers from the article:

  • Rail Travel is the safest form of travel (ok a bit late if you are about to board a plane but you’ll know for next time if you survive)
  • Statistically rear seats are safer. 69% of people survive when sat behind the wing, meaning that there are some benefits to low costs airlines not assigning you seats.
  • Seat belts are good – pull as tight as possible to reduce g-force
  • Brace position negotiable. I have heard this rumour before that its actually designed to kill you rather than safe you but I don’t want to influence anyone either way so suggest going with the flow at the time.
  • If there’s a fire cover your mouth with a wet (if possible – maybe pee on it?) hanky and get to the floor

I hope that helps! Have a good weekend!
