@PiuPiuPENGUIN I wonder what cameras are used to take these photographs.
those are such beautiful underwater shot.
@roselee89 yeah I feel the same! Especially now that it is summer, I really crave the ocean :) @PiuPiuTHePENGUIN oh how do you know that :)? And I have to agree, the results really are incredibly stunning!
@Tapsamai @PiuPiuPENGUIN Yeah, I think she said she has several underwater housing units for her camera and I know that there's lighting as well. Challenging, but the results are magnificent.
@PiuPiuPENGUIN I love underground photographies. They look so peaceful and relaxing, it makes me want to go in the wter as well.

The Print On This Girl's Dress Is Blowing My Mind.
One of my friends just found this on Tumblr, and I am seriously dying at how perfect it all is. Apparently, this user (glassescat) was shopping for fabric to sew her own dress when she stumbled across a pattern that - for the sake of bad puns - seemed pretty 'revolutionary'. ONE NATION. UNDER. BOOOODDSSSS!!!! No, seriously, Abraham Lincoln is channeling Zayn Malik pretty hard in this one. I have so many thoughts running through my head about these - the most predominant one being that I can't help but feel like someone in the fabric business must have a DeviantArt account and that their Christmas print is going to feature Naughty Santa and some disturbingly ripped anthromorphic reindeer. The best part is that once this viraled enough, fellow Tumblrs were able to figure out exactly who made this print - only to discover that there's MORE. SO MUCH MORE. Like this 'outdoorsy pin-up' print, for example. Also, it's just been decided that I'm wearing this as a toga next Halloween. Getting drunk on spooky-themed jungle juice at a friend's costume party will never look sexier. At first, the kilt was funny. And then the Ireland flag speedo got a chuckle. But then I saw the guy in blue jeans that's essentially throwing illustrations of clovers like it's a giant LARP fireball, and I completely lost it. Is anyone else a crafter? Have you seen these around? They're seriously selling out on Fabric.com right now. WHAT? WHATTT??
ATTENTION: You Can Become A Mermaid, Really!
I have discovered my life long goal, and it isn't being rich, famous, successful or a good person (just kidding on the last one) . I want, no I need, to become a mermaid. Just think about it for a second, swimming super fast, always being in the ocean, helping your sea creature friends...its practically the American Dream, except better. Celeb fashion photographer Angelina Venturella and amazing underwater photographer Chiara Salomoni have teamed up with the most interesting man in the world, Eric of the Mertailor to capture stunning pictures of "mermaids" to raise awareness AND money to preserve the ocean. I need to be apart of this and you will too after you see the mind boggling pictures. Its kind of amazing to see a mermaid out in the open, right by houses! I think thats what I love about this picture. It makes this dream seem a bit more attainable. Just look at the details on her tail! And the top piece its own work of art! Being able to go to work and be made up to look that outta this world....#goals. There is something so mystical about his picture. Mermaids have been in folklore for forever, and this picture certainly makes it even more romantic. Again just look at the TAIL! The Mertailor has found his talent and it is jaw dropping. I love that project mermaid doesn't just stick with typical mermaid colors. This dark and mysterious mertail is beautiful and completely enchanting.
