Photographer Jeffrey Millstein’s epic aerials of New York and LA.
The world’s largest rubber duck arrived in L.A. Port yesterday as part of the Tall Ships festival.
The Dutch artist who created the six-storey duck sez:
“It can relieve the world’s tensions as well as define them”
Before giggling into a stoned heap.

A couple of years ago, a Korean photographer claimed to have taken a multiple exposure shot of aircraft taking off from Hannover-Langenhagen Airport.
That image turned out to be fake, but the one above from photographer Michael Kelly appears to be the real deal.
Over 400 photos were taken over the course of a day and combined into a single image with some minor liberties taken with the the positioning of certain planes to aid with the composition.
An Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been giving his reaction to this morning’s news and there have been contributions too from the world of sport, entertainment and from across the political divide.
More as we get it.
UPDATE: We were the victims of an elaborate, meticulously–planned hoax. The BBC News report was doctored [using actual footage from Michael Jackson’s death] while the reaction video’ on closer examination was nothing more than unrelated interview snippets about real dead people. Apologies all. Chris is alive, very well and celebrating April Fool’s Day with his family probably in a castle. He will be touring this Summer. Listen to his latest album ‘Home’ here.

Filmmaker Colin Rich set out to capture Los Angeles from multiple vantage points as it transitioned from day to night. He sez:
Usually I was able to capture just one shot per day with a lot of driving, exploring, and scouting in between but the times sitting in traffic or a “sketchy” neighborhood often lead to new adventures and interesting places.
Nightfall in particular is my favorite time to shoot time lapse. Capturing the transition from day to night while looking back at the city as the purple shadow of Earth envelopes the eastern skyline and the warm distant twinkling halogen lights spark to life and give the fading sun a run for her money – this will never grow old or boring to me.
