The Animals Of Amboseli National Park in Kenya

I have actually visited Amboseli. It was about 12 years ago and my first ever safari and I can still remember the first "wild" elephant I saw. It was a big male, standing underneath a big tree. It had a reddish color due to the sand it had thrown over it's back. It was the sheer stature and size of the animal that impressed me.
Any way, here are some more beautiful animals you could encounter in the Amboseli national park.

Spending 17 days on a container ship from Portugal to Miami

When my dad was younger he traveled the seas on container ships for several years. It is fair to say it formed him as a human being, seeing all these different cultures, from the Caribbean to Asia and Africa.
This guy spent 17 days on a container ship from Portugal to Miami and it turns out boredom and no internet can be quite fun.

Hyperrealistic Portraits by Arinze Stanley

This is truly insane art. These hyperrealistic portraits are actually made using graphite and charcoal. In other words, these are drawings and not photographs.

When an Airforce One photo shoot caused panic in New York

Airforce One is the official plane of the United States President and all the way back in 2009 someone thought it would be a good and cool idea to take it for spin above New York City for a photo shoot.
The world's most recognizable plane with the world's most recognizable skyline behind it, what could possibly go wrong?
Well, the people of NYC did not know about the photo shoot, so when they saw a 747 flying extremely low and making sharp turns, many a mind went back to that horrible day of September 11th 2001.
But hey, a cool photo was had.

The Beautiful Lisbon Store Fronts by Sebastian Erras

I visited Lisbon in December and it is a beautiful city. Loads of bars, caf├ęs and restaurants that serve up a huge variety of foods. Amazing scenery, some great cultural and historical places and most of the time the weather is gorgeous. Even the shopping is quite refreshing as yes, there are big brand stores, but there are still plenty of independently owned shops about and the owners put great effort into preserving the stores they own. This results in some lovely store fronts that just invite you inside.
One tip though, bring some good walking shoes as Lisbon is built on seven hills.

Ruins of the Soviet Army

Back in the day, and I mean way back in the day, the Soviet Army was a thing that was feared in the West. Hundreds of thousands of T-72 tanks had their guns pointed towards Berlin, Paris and London. Tens of thousands of MiG fighters were ready to take to the skies and hundreds of ballistic missiles were ready to fly into orbit at the push of a button.
It seems 2017 is bringing those days closer then ever, but unless war actually breaks out the likelihood that Russia's current military machines and buildings will end up as these shown in Danila Tkachenko's series Restricted Access is rather big.
