These animals seem to have the PURR-fect life living just like their human owners. The cute critters – dogs, cats and even hamsters – have seemingly decided to try out things usually only reserved for humans.
Using her adorable style of photographer Svetlana Valyiskaya poses up common pets in everyday situations – from a hamster going to the gym to a cat ordering a meal. Her well-behaved subjects can be seen in this colorful collection of pictures she has been putting together for past six years in her native Russia.
In her spare time from her job as a commercial photographer Svetlana loves nothing more than creating these hilarious environments. Making all the costumes and designing the scenes herself, the photographers work has become a sensation in her native Russia. (Caters News)

National Geographic magazine turned 125 this month.
The magazine moves the birthday celebration off its pages with the October 1st public launch of a photo-sharing platform, Your Shot (NGYourShot.com), that allows photography fans to connect with photographers and editors around virtual assignments, get direct feedback on their work and participate in a unique photography-based community.
One of the magazine’s young star photographers, Cory Richards, will usher in the month as lead curator of the magazine’s first assignment on Your Shot.
Led by Richards and his magazine photo editor, Sadie Quarrier, the assignment invites photographers to share three images that convey how photography can help us explore our changing world.
Throughout the assignment, Richards and Quarrier will provide photo tips and feedback on the images that are submitted along with direction on what they feel will best help tell the story.
Their favourite photograph will be selected to appear in a future issue of National Geographic magazine.
Participants must join Your Shot, National Geographic’s free online photo community and storytelling platform, to submit photos to the assignment, which runs until today, October. 22. (National Geographic)

Italian photographer Giuseppe Colarusso has created series of photograph entitled ‘Improbabilita’ that turns everyday items into items that are impossible to use, improbable and some were given a completely new function altogether.
I think that Giuseppe Colarusso is so creative and the photos are very funny and interesting.
And I really love the ‘safe made out of cupboard box’ the best because it is as if we worked so hard for something but we forgot to secure something that is actually more important.

I love photography and I had posted lots of photos by great photographers who took beautiful photos of animals, trees, mountains, lakes and others.
And today, I want to share something different – cool photos of clouds that looks like UFOs or Unidentified Flying Object by Russian photographer Denis Budkov.
These photos were snapped over Klyuchevskaya Sopka, the highest mountain of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia.
They look so cool, especially the above photo.
The Mail Online wrote that the lens-shaped formations are scientifically known as ‘altocumulus lenticularis’ and are the result of moist air that has condensed at a high altitude.
They are formed when the air temperature drops and moisture droplets are pushed up a steep slope by high winds.
This unique atmospheric condition creates the interesting lens-shaped form that defines a lenticular cloud.
Mountains act as natural barriers forcing clouds to condense quickly as they are pushed to cooler altitudes.

Richard Silver’s photos of the world’s biggest sights are special because he uses artistic visual constructions like the combinations of sharpness and blur.
He wrote that, “By employing techniques such as Tilt Shift, HDR, Vertical Panoramas and Time Slice, this allows me to grow as a photographer while exposing our everyday world in an altered visual context.”
“People always ask me, How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small? Simple, WE ARE. In the big picture we are just a small blip of what the world truly is. I enjoy the power I have to change the perspective of the way people look at the world and maybe at themselves.”
