When I came out the next day, the world was turned on its head.

Bag’s Take-Away:
I don’t get the point of using the tilt-shift effect here when nature has tilt-shifted Japan already. This is either another example of photographers aestheticizing hard reality out of some instinct to stylize or we’re talking about denial.
futurejournalismproject:

When I saw this photo of jumbled cargo containers from The Political Notebook, I thought it looked like so many toy building blocks.
BigBoxCar then posted this photo of tumbled planes and cars and I’m reminded again of how small and toylike this is against the size and scale within which it occurred.
So I went hunting, and came across the same photo Karl posted. This time though, it’s been tilt-shifted.
I’m simultaneously drawn and horrified by them all. — Michael
