Three museums in one in San Francisco' s Golden Gate Park.
A planetarium, an aquarium, and a natural history museum, all wrapped in one: the California Academy of Sciences, located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, is a great place to learn and enjoy the natural sciences.
The architecture of the new building was designed by Renzo Piano, partly due to a seismic upgrade. Inside the museum there are two giant globes, one housing a rain forest and the other a planetarium. In the basement floor there is an aquarium, and on street level there is a natural history museum. You might be able to spot an albino alligator, a giant sea bass, and a colony of penguins living on site next to a working research facility!
Outside the museum are sculpture works by Maya Lin, and up on the roof is a garden, the so-called “Living Roof” because of its propensity to grow plants for local fauna. The museum itself is one of the best examples of sustainable and environmentally-friendly architecture, earning Platinum LEED status because it can run on little energy.
Visiting the museum is easy — it’s getting the tickets to get in that’s hard!
The book, released just last month, was penned by Mary Street Alinder, a former assistant to no other than Ansel Adams himself. A related exhibit will also be held in San Francisco, California for three months beginning today.
The Science Museum in London is set to play host to a showcase of some of the earliest known images taken by photography pioneers, selected from the collection of the world's oldest surviving photographic society.
If you take a left out of Regent St, down a windy lane, past a wise old man with long fingernails, over a wooden bridge and through a giant metal gate you'll find a very magical place. Yep, it's the Winter Wonderland Festival in Hyde Park! It's free to get in and it is the perfect place to get some awesome Petzval shots!
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
Originally trained as a classical scholar, Arnold Genthe was a self-taught photographer famous for, to name a few, his photographs of San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 1900s, autochromes, and portraits which included famous individuals, dancers, and women with his beloved pet, Buzzer the cat.
The clips, which include scenes from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, the Titanic before its last voyage, the attack on Pearl Harbor, Marilyn Monroe's trip to London in 1956, the 1966 World Cup Final, and many others, may be viewed on the AP Archive on YouTube.

Leslie Lindell is a Californian photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She shoots photos of regular people doing regular things, capturing life and lifestyle. A cookbook which contains photographs that she took won the 2014 IACP Cookbook of the Year award. That same year, Lindell attended the 51st Shoshone Bannock Powwow Festival at the Fort Hall Reservation just outside of Pocatello, Idaho and shot some colorful pictures with the Petzval Lens.
Someday, getting rid of unwanted memories will be as easy as popping a pill and waiting a few hours for the desired effect to kick in. Literally a bitter pill to swallow (you'd think that with all the advancements in science then, they would've already made, say, fruit-flavored ones like the vitamins you loved as a kid), sure, but effective nonetheless.
In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
