Amazing Performers Journey on Home made Flotillas

Photographer Tod Seelie catches the lifestyle of artists as they travel across waterways, sailing on their own uniquely designed rafts. Structured by road specialist Caledonia "Callie" Curry, best known as Swoon, the venture launched on its first adventure last season. Each flotilla, developed out of reprocessed and discovered components, features its own vivid, free-spirited character. Like a journeying festival of Peter Pan and the Missing Guys (and Girls), the performers panel their hand made delivers and set off on an adventure.

The concept behind each journey is more than just a fun boating encounter for the performers themselves. Seelie says :
"[R]eally it’s a mixture of factors, but I’d say the primary factor [of the trips] is inspiration. It’s the motivation we think and the motivation other individuals encounter when they come across us.”
He adds :
"We are moving as this giant group and intentionally trying to engage people."
 The tourists created a addiction out of docking their flotillas and interesting crowds of people. They even went so far as to encourage audiences onto their vessels to educate them art creating trades like silk screening.

Thus far, the team has created four visits in complete, all last year—two going down the Mississippi River, one on the Hudson River Troy, New York to Queens, and final journey from Slovenia to Venice. Now, there are programs to participate on another encounter in Oregon in mid-August. Seelie is set to be on panel once again, including more pictures of their interesting journey to his Swimming Cities of Serenissima sequence.

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.

Staggering Photos Capture the Otherworldly Beauty of Antarctica's Icebergs

Tokyo-based nature and untamed life photographic artist Martin Bailey catches the powerful excellence of Antarctica in this enthralling photograph arrangement. While the frozen continent is home to numerous seals and penguins, Bailey decided to photo the clearing scene without any indications of life, rather concentrating on the merciless and ethereal excellence of 1,000-year-old ice shelves and glaciers.
