Breathtaking Photos of Mountains in Tajikistan as Seen From a Camper's Tent

On a recent trip to the Fann Mountains in Tajikistan, photographer Oleg Grigoryev captured the experience of camping amongst the mountains by photographing the breathtaking view from his tent in the mornings. Grigoryev was up in some pretty thin air during his trip — some of the Fann Mountains are more than 16,000 feet above sea level.

On August 27, 2014, British couple Maurice and Helen Kaye (102 and 101 years old respectively) celebrated their 80th wedding anniversary in their home in Bournemouth, making them one of Britain’s longest-married couples. The duo first met in 1929 and were married in 1934. Early on in their marriage, Maurice shipped off to serve in World War II. The couple then raised a family and ran a successful clothing business in Bournemouth. They now have seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. The couple recently told the BBC that the secret to their marriage is “kindness, love and tolerance.”

‘Game of Thrones’ Opening Sequence Brilliantly Recreated in the Style of Saul Bass

Published by:

German designer Milan Vuckovic imitated the style of famous graphic designer Saul Bass to create an alternate opening sequence for HBO’s Game of Thrones. Saul Bass created some of the most iconic opening credit sequences and posters in the history of film, working with filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorsese. Last year Bass was honored with an elaborate Google Doodle on what would have been his 93rd birthday.

Artist Fernando Reza took a similar approach last year when creating a series of Game of Thrones posters done in the style of Bass.
