And every time it erupts it gives us these totally cool pictures.
Warships in France by Photographer Bob Thissen
Bob Thissen is an animator, filmmaker and photographer and he loves to travel. He has been traveling the world looking for unique abandoned buildings and yards and since 2007 he takes his camera with him to document what he finds. However, just documenting these places soon wasn't enough. Bob wanted to show us their beauty and tragedy and started taking more and more care in the way he captured the images.
It's the adrenaline, adventure and experience that drives him to go to these places, but once there he wants to leave us, the viewer, with a feeling of "wow". And I think you'll agree that he is doing a pretty good job so far.

Behind the scenes at the Harbin Snow and Ice Sculpture Festival

To create it takes a lot of work.
Check out the 2016, 2015 and 2014 sets.
Best Pictures Of 2016
I just checked out what I wrote in 2015 and it turns out nothing has changed. Absolutely nothing. Syria is still one big mess. Innocent refugees still want to flee countless frightening war zones. The Brexit has isolated and divided Britain a little more. Trump has done the same in the US. France was once again hit with terrorist attacks. And falling oil prices have given companies and consumers the excuse not to care about the environment as much.
I would be really good if we could let 2016 be and concentrate on making 2017 a year to never forget for the right reasons.
The Abandoned Airplane Graveyard in Bangkok
My name is Steve and i am one of the people behind TotallyCoolPix and the Dutch Amusement site VKMag. I am absolutely no photographer nor i have the intentions to become one. But when i am somewhere on this planet i love to visit cool places and take some pictures. At this moment i am in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Things you need to do here are eating Thai dishes (including spiders and scorpions), visiting the Grand Palace, various temples and of course drinking some cocktails in the rooftop bar that was featured in the Hangover II movie. Bangkok also has some places that are on the bucket list of Urban Explorers, like the abandoned Ghost Tower. But climbing 49 floors when it is really hot outside? No, not this trip. But there is another cool place in my eyes to visit in Bangkok, the Airplane Graveyard where abandoned jets have been left to rot. These planes were abandoned after a business venture to convert them into a bar and venue failed. So somewhere in a suburb of Bangkok is this private lot filled with pieces of decommissioned commercial jets, including a Boeing 747 fuselage. If you want to visit this graveyard you will have to pay 200 baht (5 euro) to a lady who lives on the site with her extended family in some converted fuselages.Open this photogallery >

Welcome to the Australian ute culture
Ute is not a hip way of writing youth, it is street talk for utility vehicle. These utes, part truck and part car, were once a very popular car in Australia, but the big automakers have fallen out of love with them. Not so the Australian public, 20,000 of whom celebrate all that is the ute and it's culture during the Deni Ute Muster festival in Deniliquin.Open this photogallery >
