War and Peace: 10 Photos Commemorating 100 Years Since WWI

This year marks the 100th-year anniversary of the start of World War I, on July 28, 1914, when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. To commemorate the First World War’s centenary, photographer Peter Macdiarmid superimposed photographs from World War I onto photographs of the same modern-day locations in an altogether eerie depiction of the years that have passed.

A clinical psychologist by day, Cyril Rolando (aka AquaSixio) spends his free time creating beautifully surreal, digital artwork that portray fantastic scenes and worlds.

That last image, I love it. I need it. For many reasons. I might write about me and the tree and words and how that all winds together. Not tonight, I need to go to bed. Someone remind me if you want to hear about it.

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
