  1. Yes, that is made from crayons: Herb Williams is one of the few people in the world who have an  individual account with Crayola.  The company is on his speed dial.   He’s on a first-name basis with many of the employees.  So what merits  this special treatment?  Because Williams orders a lot of crayons.  Boxes of them.  Thousands and thousands of them.  Three thousand Crayola crayons in a 50-pound case. View in High-Res

  1. Jason Lazarus is interested in images with intensely personal meaning to their  owners — even if he doesn’t know what that meaning is. That’s why he  started his project, “Too Hard To Keep,” in which he solicits emotionally charged photographs that people might otherwise destroy. View in High-Res

  1. File this under ‘Likely to destroy your sand castle:’ Nothing says “vacation” like getting blown across a beach by the engine  blast of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet — or having one scream past, 30 feet  above your head as you lay on a towel sipping your Mai Tai. View in High-Res

  1. Edward Horsford’s  high-speed photography freezes the spherical innards of water balloons —  just as the balloon skins break open, and just before they splash to  the floor. He works at night in his garden in London, using flashes to  light the action. Amazingly, he works alone. So how does he do it? And  doesn’t he get soaked? View in High-Res
