    Trench art, a decorative item made by soldiers, POW's or civilians where the manufacture is directly linked to conflict or consequence.

    Here, Corporal Cameron crafted a four piece tea set for his mother sending each piece home as it was complete. The materials include British 13 and 18 pound shell casings, a French 75mm case and French rifle bullets. Cameron survived the war but his younger brother was killed in action in 1918. All pieces took a total of four years to complete.

    Another picture of the Rolls Royce Phantom I posted a few days ago.

    I love the symmetry in the door design, and the window itself that actually splits and lowers each halve separately.

    Tree-pod dining in Thailand.

    The lower section of the pod is lowered for guests to get in, and then hoisted 11 metres into the air. Each pod has a personal waiter which brings in food and other orders via a zip-line. (Wonder how many plates are broken...or lost...during waiter training at this place!)

    Here's a short video about the experience.

    British designer Adrian Fisher has built more than 700 mazes all over the world, but it’s this one at Longleat House in Wiltshire, about 20 miles south of Bath, that remains his best-known.
    Built from more than 16,000 yew trees, it includes just under two miles of twists and turns – all of which you can see from one of the six bridges that let you look down on the maze (and find a way out, if you need it) from above.

    It's all in the details, details that creates the big picture.

    This unusual-looking loop-the-loop, which can be found in the bay of Lax Firth just off the Shetland Islands, is becoming an increasingly common sight from the air over Britain. (Each of the circles here is a salmon pen).
    Salmon – Scotland’s largest food export as well as the most popular seafood in the UK – is increasingly being farmed as wild stocks have plummeted; in 2015, salmon farming in Scotland was valued at about £650 million and supported some 8,000 jobs.

    The Uffington White Horse can be best appreciated from the air – and yet it was etched into the landscape around 3,000 years ago. The entire shape of the horse can only be seen from above, and at 110m by 40m, the Uffington White Horse is the longest chalk engraving in the country. It can also be viewed from nearby hills, even from up to 20 miles away.
    The mystery, of course, is why any of them were created. One theory is that the Uffington White Horse may have marked a land boundary for members of an ancient Celtic cult that worshipped the horse-goddess Epona. What we do know is that, whatever its purpose was, it wasn’t easy to construct: Bronze Age people had to dig trenches into the hillside and fill them in with white chalk.

    Can only be seen from above?
    Does not make sense to me, surely all that work without the artists being able to appreciate their work?
    Was this not intended for aerial visitors?

    In Central Asian countries like Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan, the unibrow is considered a symbol of beauty and purity for women and of virility for men. If there is no natural unibrow, or if it is weak, women use a kohl liner or a modern kajal pen to paint it in.
    This young girl from Ishkachim has travelled 100km north to Khorog for the musical festivities, resplendent in her village’s traditional dress.
