tree

Norwegian Spruce? Forget it. Silver plastic pine? No thanks. A Christmas tree made up of over half a kilometre of drinking straws? EPIC! That’s the opinion of one young girl who saw her Christmas dream come true today with an ex-straw-dinary festive surprise at the V&A Museum of Childhood.The giant straw Christmas tree was crafted by Cravendale after they received a heart-warming drawing and Christmas wish from five-year-old Grace Davies. Infatuated with Cravendale’s EPIC Straws kits, the inventive Grace sent an extravagant design for a truly unique tree to the boss of the Leeds-based milk brand suggesting they try and build it – which low and behold, and bowled over by her polite and super-sweet letter, they went and did.

Water Balloon Photographs Here’s a neat idea of thinking outside the box: high-speed photographer Scott Dickson added a pair of sunglasses to an ordinary water balloon pop photograph, giving the splash some personality (and a “bowtie”). Scott Dickson is a photographer/enthusiast specialising in high speed water splash photography. An avid experimenter, Scott has paired commercially available products with home-built rigs to capture liquid art. These rigs and setups use a variety of backgrounds and colour effects to enhance the images and make them more visually appealing. Using his custom-built rigs, Scott has taught several workshops on high speed photography and introduced many to the technique. Where: United States
