When did you stop feeling beautiful?
Where Rivers Join
These are eight stunning examples of places where two or more rivers meet. Known as a conflux or confluence, it refers to the point where multiple bodies of water merge. These places show an incredible contrasting beauty that only pictures can display.

This is possibly the best photo of a rainbow ever
The natural wonder was captured by photographer Justin Lee, who was overjoyed to find himself in exactly the right place at the right time. Mr Lee, from British Columbia, Canada, was standing close to a cliff at the Tunnel View lookout when he spotted the colourful scene.
He said: ‘The sun has to be in position to get the rainbow, and this photo was not planned by me beforehand. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. ‘I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to see such a sight, and just had to start taking pictures straight away.’

Oh my gosh so beautiful.
these are beautiful, but why would you ever do this to a book?
Okay this is something I have to answer because as a bookseller, as a bookseller working in a used bookstore, this is something I have to deal with daily. People get mad at me or express something like profound disappointment when I indicate that we recycle what we can’t use, and some of that recycling is the employees using books to make art and/or crafts like purses, buttons, collages, jewelry, etc.
You know why we do it? Because we love books. We recycle them so they can be made into new books by a company that we pay to do exactly that. We make them into art because sometimes there is nothing else you can do with them and the thought of just getting rid of them seems like a waste.
You may love books and hate to see them “destroyed,” but tell me what you, personally, are going to do with a full set of Encyclopedia Britannica from 1994? That’s 26 books of outdated information. When you have a stack of Twilight books that is literally two feet tall, is it really absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity of their bookiness? Or might it be more worthwhile to give them a second life? As a new book, as art, as something other than an object that takes up space in a store where we need as much as possible to sell the books you love and that we love too. I wouldn’t do this to, say, the Gutenberg Bible or a first edition Virginia Woolf, but something we see several times a day every day? Art is a pretty good fate for an otherwise unsaleable book.
No one is asking you to make incredible mountain ranges out of the books you love. But please consider that same love might have something to do with why people make the things they do out of books.
Anyone else notice Mushu the dragon is Mulan’s tattoo…?
This is the coolest shit I have ever seen.
Let’s not forget this one
…this is the first time I’ve seen disney princess stuff that I’d actually want as prints. Also, part of me is glad Tiana’s not in this bunch bc there’s only so much potential to be wrong-headed about things from my cultural background I can take in a day. But if this artist actually got it? Tiana, queen of the zombies would be amazing.
anyone else notice how mulan is the avatar
except that tiana is indeed in this series and she’s the best fucking one period
actually shit they left out kida, tiana, pocahontas, rapunzel and maid marian
Disney seen through a darker lens. I love it. I can’t choose a favourite.
this is so not my style but i absolutely love, love, love twisted princesses. Jane, Wendy, Jasmine, Esmeralda, Snow White, and Maid Marian are my favorites. They’re just so good.

It’s my fucking dream to gather a group of friends and explore a place like this.
Sure, there might be some murders but the survivor will have a story of a lifetime.
DO NONE OF YOU WATCH HORROR MOVIES OR SUPERNATURAL JESUS FUCKING CHRIST DON’T
So I’ll just invite people I don’t like.
((Why doesn’t this have more notes? The looks of all the different cultures is so beautiful.
Amazing landscapes meticulously carved out of books.
i mean that’s beautiful but
Often times people who do this kind of thing make their creations out of books that were damaged in some way or another and deemed unreadable, giving them a new use and avoiding taking away a future reading experience from someone :)
So this just happened on Facebook.
aLL THE FUCKING AWARDS
