The city of Tokyo, Japan is one the most wanted places to visit in the World. I haven’t had the chance to go visit yet and the series Tokyo at Night by Masashi Wakui surely doesn’t help as well. But his street photography of the eerie alleys of nocturnal Tokyo does captivate the beauty of its neon and vibrant colour palette.

A Compilation of Ominous Time-lapse Video Featuring Storms Developing Overhead

Published by:

Nebraska photographer Ryan McGinnis has created a compilation video featuring his best time-lapse storm video from 2014. The video highlights the ominous formation of a number of storms over head, largely taken from his home state.

I am mostly new to time-lapse and am still trying to learn the craft. Music is “Sunshine (Adagio In D Minor)” by John Murphy. Storms included are the Mother’s Day Nebraska storm, Burwell, NE on June 16, Chugwater, WY funnel, the hail monster that wrecked Gibbon, NE, and some minor misc other storms.

Even more stunning are the photographer’s still storm images.

‘I’m a Coward’, A New They Might Be Giants Dial-A-Song Track About Self-Doubt

Published by:

For week 13 of their year-long Dial-A-Song project (previously), They Might Be Giants explore the world of self-doubt with the track “I’m a Coward.”

I need a confidant who can see past my faults
And take the time to save me from myself
I need a confidant. A co-conspirator
To turn the tide on my losing side

The corresponding music video created by production team Work-Order, highlights the song’s lyrics through a series of card tricks.

Hummingbirds Fly and Feed Inside a Wind Tunnel While Being Filmed by a High-Speed Camera

Published by:

The latest episode of the series Deep Look by KQED and PBS Digital Studios features slow-motion video of hummingbirds flying and feeding inside a wind tunnel. The experiment shows how hummingbirds use their wings differently than most birds to be able to hover in one place to eat, even in the rain and wind up to 20 miles per hour.

They have to. Because of their high metabolism, hummingbirds have to eat their own weight in flower nectar every day.
