"Venture to the Exterior"
What stood out was the patterns which make up the main images in the print, it lures you in. I also like the colour and think they look beautiful.
I love these photos of space because of how magical and colourful they look. These individual events were captured by the Hubble space telescope. They remind me of sci fi comic book illustrations because of the way the colour blends and how it is so vivid against the black space it looks surreal as if they are just paintings. Each individual image has its own characteristics, the first photo has a gaseous silhouette of a fairy. The second is a photo of the Crab Nebula you can see how it got its name. The third looks like a dragon to me. (Images below were taken from: http://news.uk.msn.com/in-pictures/gallery.aspx?cp-documentid=9773060)
Both the movie and the above photo was taken using tilt-shift photography.

I first came across Keith Loutit's work on vimeo and had been meaning post this for some time. I really like how they look so much like miniature sets but surprisingly aren't.

I visited the Wellcome Collection to see the Exquisite Bodies exhibition. It was a good exhibition but not for the faint hearted as the waxwork on display were very realistic in showing diseases and deformalities which can occur. At the end there was a selection of books on display for visitors to have a look at and I looked through "Gray's Anatomy". The book is essential for medical students as its a directory of the human body. I really liked the line drawings which show the striated muscles and the veins and arteries with some detail.
I've always loved Quentin Blakes illustrations and like most people my age have grown up reading Roald Dahl and that's how we've come across his work. His drawings look like they have been created quickly with energy, but they manage to look sweet. The above image was shown at an exhibition called "In The Picture".
