Beautiful Portrait Photos Of Ziegfeld Follies Showgirls From The 1920s Taken By Alfred Cheney Johnston

Alfred Cheney Johnston (1885 – 1971) was a New York City-based photographer known for his portraits of Ziegfeld Follies showgirls as well as of actors and actresses from the worlds of stage and film.

Johnston was born into an affluent New York banking family, which subsequently moved to Mount Vernon, New York. Initially he studied painting and illustration at the National Academy of Design in New York, but after graduating in 1908, his subsequent efforts to earn a living as a portrait painter did not meet with success. Instead, reportedly at the suggestion of longtime family friend and famed illustrator Charles Dana Gibson, he started to employ the camera previously used to record his painting subjects as his basic creative medium.

In approximately 1917, Johnston was hired by famed New York City live-theater showman and producer Florenz Ziegfeld as a contracted photographer, and was affiliated with the Ziegfeld Follies for the next fifteen years or so. He photographed several hundred actresses and showgirls (mainly in New York City, and whether they were part of the Follies or not) during that time period.

Design Plans for the SMART Trailer Woodshop

This isn’t a build video, but a design and planning discussion. For those of you who have ever toyed with the idea of building a functional shop out of the back of a trailer, Ron Paulk has built more than his fair share, and here he discusses the latest plans for his newest design, built on years of previous experience:

Making a Long Lathe Tool Rest

Shannon Rogers made his own long chairmaker’s tool rest out of metal for his lathe, but here’s the hardcore part: He only used human-powered tools, including a handcranked drill press!

DIY Table Made from a Single Sheet of Plywood

This is impressive. Ben Uyeda designs a sturdy, dramatic-looking table all made from a single sheet of plywood, using only a circular saw and a drill:

DIY Cloud Lamp

Ben creates his own cloud lamp using a hot glue gun and a bunch of ping pong balls:

LED Backlit Sign from a Harbor Freight Flashlight

This is pretty resourceful. Ben Brandt takes a cheap LED worklight from Harbor Freight, tears it apart, then uses basic woodworking skills and a 3D printer to make a backlit sign:

Breathtaking Aerial Photography Of South Africa From Above By Zack Seckler

Zack Seckler is a 37-year-old fine art photographer who was born in Boston and currently lives and works in the suburbs of New York City. For his latest series “Aerial South Africa”, Zack took to the skies 2,000 miles above South Africa for seven days in a two-seater sport plane.

“From elevations between 50 and 500 ft the landscape hovers on the line between things looking very real and recognisable and being more abstract. That’s what really draws me in — the line between reality and abstraction,” he says.

Breathtaking Stained-Glass Cabin Looks Ripped From A Fairytale

A miniature house made from glass shows off expert construction and dazzling motifs seemingly ripped from Alice In Wonderland. Covered with stained glass, the house sits on a stretch of luscious green land in Mohawk, New Jersey.

More info: Instagram (h/t: creators)

Neile Cooper, a long-time stained-glass artist and jeweler, considers the Glass Cabin her most ambitious work to date. The sharp right angles of the house juxtapose with the swiveling oversized leaves and the curving wingspan of butterflies, accentuating the fantasy house.

“It is made almost entirely of reclaimed materials,” Cooper shares with Creators. “Rafter beams from some fallen trees, lumber from a neighbor’s storm-damaged porch, and many, many old window frames.”

How to (Possibly) Save a Laptop from Water Damage

It’s every laptop owner’s nightmare: a carelessly spilled cup of coffee. A sudden shower when you’re working outside. Heaven forbid, some kind of farcical bathroom tumble when you really had to get that TPS report in. Conventional wisdom says that a soaked laptop is a dead laptop, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be true, especially if you have a few tools and a lot of patience.

Stunning Concept Art From The Video Game The Witcher 3 By CD Projekt Red

Established in 2002, located in Warsaw and Kraków, Poland, CD PROJEKT RED was born out of raw passion to video games. The studio’s founders: Michał Kiciński and Marcin Iwiński, both pioneers in video game distribution in Poland in the 90s, decided to employ their gaming industry experience in video game development. Hence, in 2007, The Witcher was born.

More info: The Witcher 3 (h/t: candb)

The game tells the story of Geralt of Rivia, who is a Witcher – a genetically enhanced human with special powers trained to slay monsters. The Witcher contains three different paths, which affect the game’s storyline. These paths are: alliance with the Scoia’tael (also called the Squirrels), a guerrilla freedom-fighting group of Elves and other non-humans; alliance with the Order of the Flaming Rose, whose knights protect the country of Temeria; or alliance with neither group to maintain ‘Witcher neutrality.’

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt concludes the story of the witcher Geralt of Rivia, whose story to date has been covered in the previous titles. Continuing from The Witcher 2, Geralt seeks to move on with his own life, embarking on a new and personal mission while the world order itself is coming to a change.
