Robert Overweg’s « The End of the Virtual World » series

This series of pictures coming from popular FPS games (Left 4 dead 2, Half-life 2, Counter-Strike & Modern Warfare 2) is called « The End of the Virtual World ». They show how these kind of universes sometimes abruptly end. This is kind of funny, because a lot of players experienced the same thing, discovering that the end of the street in the game they’re playing disappears in nowhere, reminding you that you beloved virtual world is… Well, virtual. Robert Overweg is specialized in the photography of virtual worlds. As he claims on his site, he believes those worlds are the new public spaces, an extension of the physical world that deserves to be photographed just as much as the real world.

You’ll find on his website shotbyrobert.com his other works on the virtual worlds. A really interesting reflection between virtual reality and art.

Eclipse - No, not the movie...

As the total phase of July 11's solar eclipse came to an end, sunlight streaming past the edge of the Moon's silhouette created the fleeting appearance of a glistening diamond ring in the sky. Seen through a thin cloud layer from the French Polynesian atoll of Hao it also produced remarkable shadow bands, flickering across the dramatic scene. Projected onto the cloud layer, the shadow bands are parallel to the sliver of sunlight emerging from behind the Moon's edge. Caused by turbulence in Earth's atmosphere refracting the sliver of sunlight, the narrow bands were captured in this brief, 1/400th second exposure. Shining through the cloud droplets, the sunlight also produced a luminous atmospheric corona, not to be confused with the solar corona seen during eclipse totality. The atmospheric corona is centered on the bright diamond of emerging sunlight.

After a long trek eastward across the southern Pacific Ocean, the Moon's shadow reached landfall in South America. In a total solar eclipse close to sunset, silhouetted Moon and Sun hugged the western horizon, seen here above the Andes mountains near the continent's southern tip. To enjoy a good vantage point, the photographer hiked to a windy spot about 400 meters above a lake, Lago Argentino, climbing into the picture after setting up his camera on a tripod. At left, the sky outside the shadow cone is still bright. Below, the lights of El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina, shine by the lake shore.
