Although currently living in the United States, crochet artist Olek recently returned to her native country of Poland for an epic project. Over the course of two straight (and rainy) days, Olek and her team of four assistants 'yarn bombed' an entire locomotive with two freight cars in tow. Olek had already crocheted many of the panels beforehand but they still had to be assembled to cover the train.
The team worked through the night to pull off the massive undertaking, debuting the crocheted train on July 13th. It will be on display in Lodz, Poland, until August 19th. The project was done in collaboration with the city and was authorized. She calls the piece 'Deadly Romance'.

A Pensioner and His Garden

  • Gardening widow Anne says she is allowed to step on the hallowed turf but son was told 'no ball games allowed'
  • Mr Grindle claims his garden is a full time job getting him up at the crack of dawn

  • Do you want a lawn like this? Well, it's easy – in theory. You just need to spend 30 hours a week gardening and do it for 30 years!

Mr Grindle mows his lawn six times a week and keeps the grass cut to an impressive 5mm. He was so determined to protect his precious grass that he even banned his son Jonathan from playing football on it when he was a boy.

Aerial Shots Of New York

The big apple of his eye: Photographer's amazing aerial shots of New York taken as he dangled out of a helicopter

  • Jason Hawkes has taken hundreds of thousands of aerial photos and clocked innumerable hours in the sky above Manhattan
A photographer with a special knack for aerial shots has put New York City into perspective by only looking down on it from above.
Jason Hawkes boasts a portfolio of hundreds of thousands of aerial shots from all over the world and has produced 40 books of aerial photography.
But there is something especially stunning about the City that Never Sleeps when seen from the top down and Hawkes' method of getting his birds-eye-views are equally inspiring.
The intrepid photographer takes most of his shots from the passenger seat of a helicopter. While tethered in for dear life, he leans out the window and...voila.
From his vantage, sunsets in the city are even more riveting, the nightlife looks all the more exciting, and a walk in the park becomes an adventure into urban wilds.
