In the Heat of the Moment...
In this crazy capture, we see photographer Kawika Singson getting up close and personal with lava as his shoes and tripod begin to catch fire. The photographer explains: “Always trying to be creative, I thought it would be pretty cool (hot!) to take a lava pic with my shoes and tripod on fire while photographing lava so that’s what I did that’s real lava real flames and it was really hot! I could stand the heat only for a few seconds.” - Gökhan Birlik
The image was taken somewhere in Hawaii. In a recent interview with PetaPixel, Singson admits he doesn’t like to give out his exact locations. - Gökhan Birlik

"The ‘Art of Making’ series aspires to display and highlight people who go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art." - Gökhan Birlik
The flamenco sound stirs memories of one my favorite artists. You probably have heard of him. .... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... .... I love this guy and the depth of soulful artistry he imparts through his music. ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ - JB

MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) by Jason deCaires Taylor
In 2009 a monumental underwater museum called MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) was formed in the waters surrounding Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc. The project founded by Jaime Gonzalez Cano of The National Marine Park, Roberto Diaz of The Cancun Nautical Association and Jason deCaires Taylor consists of over 450 permanent life-size sculptures and is one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world. - Gökhan Birlik from Bookmarklet
The Museum aiming to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science forms a complex reef structure for marine life to colonise, inhabit and increase biomass on a grand scale. Each of the sculptures is made from specialized materials used to promote coral life, with the total installations occupying an area of over 420sq metres of barren seabed and weighing over 200 tons. - Gökhan Birlik
The Cancun Marine Park is one of the most visited stretches of water in the world with over 750,000 visitors each year, placing immense pressure on its resources. The location of the sculptures promotes the recovery of the natural reefs at it relieves pressure on them by drawing visitors away. - Gökhan Birlik

With the development of the advanced diving technologies humans have begun to discover all wonders of underwater world. Despite the fact that humans have improved their diving technologies which are allowing us to explore deeper than ever, we have still very limited knowledge about what is really hiding in the dark deeps of the Earth's seas and oceans. However, those technologies have brought us a totally new view on the underwater world especially after development of underwater photographing in last few decades. - Gökhan Birlik
We have to thanks to some brave and consistent underwater photographers for that we have the opportunity to see such amazing and incredible scenes photographed and filmed deep down in seas. Brian Skerry is one of many photographers which have contributed to better knowledge about the beauties of underwater life. Here you can see some of the best Brian's photos taken deep under the surface. - Gökhan Birlik

"“ Why photograph? For me it’s simply an extension of the natural impulse to explore the larger world. Photography is a great self learning process that has no borders. It should be far more than the simple act of recording a lasting memory. In a way, it is about tempting our imagination to create an outer image. In essence, it is an art form and a way of expression. The wilderness is the perfect palate from which to draw inspiration with its ever-changing array of natural colors, textures, shape and life.“" - Gökhan Birlik from Bookmarklet
Travel on the other hand allows us to discover new places with new atmospheres, smells, tastes & sounds. It allows us to meet other people with different lives, opinions, experiences or customs, just to let us realize that nothing is just black and white, that there might be visible or hidden reason for everything people do and just because we don’t understand something today it doesn’t mean we won’t understand it tomorrow. - Gökhan Birlik

"We will never tire of the positive effects of nature. Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style. The more we rush, the more time we spend indoors staring at our screens and devices, the more urban our lifestyles become, the more we crave and need time away from it all. It has been amazing to follow the newest solutions to the old dilemmas: How to bring more green space to cities; how to reclaim underused urban land for recreational and other “green” uses; how to provide more and more people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of spending time in nature. Lately, we have seen fantastic examples of how designers and architects, urban planners and citizens’ organizations have accomplished both large and small-scale projects, from bringing a bit of greenery, and open space to otherwise bleak surroundings, to large-scale neighborhood-changing undertakings. " - Gökhan Birlik from Bookmarklet
The most prominent of these large-scale projects in the past few years has probably been New York’s Highline, the “park in the sky” that reclaimed a deemed-to-be-demolished industrial transportation structure for recreational and other uses. - Gökhan Birlik

"John Locke FRS (play /ˈlɒk/; 29 August 1632 – 28 October 1704), widely known as the Father of Classical Liberalism, was an English philosopher and physician regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers. Considered one of the first of the British empiricists, following the tradition of Francis Bacon, he is equally important to social contract theory. His work had a great impact upon the development of epistemology and political philosophy. His writings influenced Voltaire and Rousseau, many Scottish Enlightenment thinkers, as well as the American revolutionaries. His contributions to classical republicanism and liberal theory are reflected in the United States Declaration of Independence.[5]" - Gökhan Birlik from Bookmarklet

Infrared photography allows you to produce most amazing and charming color contrasting effects in your photography. " - Gökhan Birlik from Bookmarklet
Everyday objects produce infrared rays which are completely opposite of the light which is visible to the human eye., the tonal relationships are widely unexpected. Infrared photography is capable of producing surprising colored effects in objects which in daily routine you see as dull and boring. - Gökhan Birlik
