The bright lights of London are best seen by helicopter

Tuesday, 2 June, 2015

US photographer Vincent Laforet recently spent a couple of hours flying over London after dark, and captured some incredible images of the city enveloped by the night.

That time Nirvana performed in a swimming pool

Wednesday, 20 May, 2015

They’re not actually “newly unearthed”, but that doesn’t make them any less interesting, photos of former Seattle grunge band Nirvana members taking part in an underwater shot, that’s kind of reminiscent of the iconic baby in the pool cover of their 1991 album, Nevermind.
