After much ado, and many beautiful photographs (at least 18,000 entries), the winners of the 2014 National Geographic Photography contest have been chosen. With the actual winning photograph being a supercell storm photo out of Colorado, “The Independence Day” (featured below), we have selected some of the winning bunch for your perusal, with some personal favorites [...]


Houston, Texas-based modifiers of obscene horsepower, Hennessey, fill their corporate coffers supercharging Corvette and Cadillac engines to the point of absurdity.

This, truly, is one of the coolest concepts we’ve seen in the art world in a long minute. Olloclip, creators of mobile-photography technology, are putting on an art show in Orange County that is worth looking into  — perhaps with a magnifying glass.

Bend it like Paul Smith... in soccer decorum

To best accessorize the World Cup, Paul Smith has created a limited-edition run of 250 designer footballs that bear his signature stripe.
