The Artistic TARDIS Project

Van Gogh Paintings Recreated With Spices

I’ve seen Van Gogh paintings recreated with a variety of things, from food to plants to LEGOs, but this series by photographer Kelly McCollam seems to best capture the Impressionist feel.

Amazing Pictures of Magnified Beach Sand

I always knew there were a wide variety of sands, and that they were all made from worn down shells and rocks.

Vanishing Store Fronts

One of my favorite things about New York City is the incredible variety of stores, restaurants and services the city contains. Nestled into nearly every block of city real estate, scattered between chain coffee shops and fast food franchises, is a little treasure to be explored. A mom & pop joint. A dive. A hole [...]
