I doubt anybody in the set could stand next to these guys and not feel very small.
Conan the Destroyer is an 1984 American adventure film directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the titular Conan. Wilt Chamberlain and Andre the Giant played the villains Bombaata and the horned giant god, Dagoth, respectively.
While they seem like your average men in this photo, let us be reminded that the shortest in this trio, Schwarzenegger, stands at about 6 ft. 2 in. Chamberlain’s listed height is 7 ft. 1 in. while Andre the Giant is billed to be about 7 ft. 5 in.
I dunno about you guys, but at a personal height of 5 ft. 4 in., I’m feeling pretty puny.

Being a part of Fashion Week is not easy. You need to know high-profile personalities and e-mail tons of guys to be on the Fashion Week A-list.

For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
Very few of even the most intrepid travelers get to set sail to the Arctic and the Antarctic. A lomographer known to the Community as stouf, however, was able to set foot on both polar regions. While the rare opportunity to visit these uncommon destinations came in parcel with his profession, he did not forget to bring along his trusty cameras and favorite film to capture scenes from the expeditions.
These blue-tinted photographs were taken by Edward S. Curtis, renowned ethnologist and photographer who had also worked on the set of the 1923 silent epic film not only as still photographer but also as the second unit cameraman.
If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.

The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down.

In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
