In flash photography the light of the flash occurs too fast for the pupil to close so much of the very bright light from the flash passes into the eye through the pupil, reflects off the fundus at the back of the eyeball and out through the pupil. The camera records this reflected light. The main cause of the red color is the ample amount of blood in the choroid which nourishes the back of the eye and is located behind the retina. The amount of red light emerging from the pupil depends on the amount of melanin in the layers behind the retina. This amount varies strongly between individuals. Light skinned people with blue eyes have relatively low melanin in the fundus and thus show a much stronger red-eye effect than dark skinned people with brown eyes. The same holds for animals.
The Tuckerton, New Jersey police were called for a raccoon whose head was stuck in a tree at the corner of Marine Street and Otis Avenue. Retired State Conservation Officer Lt. Wayne Tonnesen was asked to respond, along with Tuckerton Fire Company's rescue truck. Tonnesen attempted to free the animal by hand, but was unable to dislodge it. He then used an air chisel to enlarge the hole and free the raccoon. The final photo shows the raccoon running off, with no apparent injuries.
Founded in 1920 and located in the heart of the Barri Gòtic, Barcelona's historical center, the El Gran Café still preserves its original Modernist décor which, together with a live piano player at night, makes it undoubtedly one of the most stunning and beautiful spaces in Barcelona. And the best part is if you look them up on Street View -- I was going to make this a challenge, but it was way too easy -- the outside menu board hasn't even fucking changed. So instead, I'm sure someone out there from the New York/New Jersey corridor will be able to show me the location where this photo of the Freedom Tower was taken from.
Like anything peope build, people will eventually turn it into something weirder than anything that's even been possibly done before. Because, yeah, this thing called post-modernism has reached almost every aspect of our life. So then of course we're gonna have buildings looking like they're drunk. But in fact, these are very interesting architecture works that most people would be very curious to see in person. So until you get the chance to visit, tide yourself over with these photos.
Nescafe is a brand of instant coffee made by Nestlé; the name is a portmanteau of the words "Nestle" and "cafe".

I got a Kershaw because it seems Spyderco lowered the steel quality on their knives and it wouldn't hold an edge as long. I was going to try Cold Steel or Kershaw, the carbide tip is what sold me on Kershaw. A word of advice on it. The carbide tip will tear the inside of your pocket. I advise you switch the clip so the point is out of your pocket if it doesn't arrive that way. Thanks for the laughs, Mark
