Michael Light often snaps his photos from a two-seater plane — at a bumpy 70 mph — that he pilots himself at the same time, but you’d never know it from his well-composed aerial shots. From swimming-pooled suburbs in Phoenix to razed hills awaiting their luxury homes in Nevada, Light has been documenting the western U.S.’s unique topography from the air for the past decade.
In his series on Black Mountain, Nevada, Light’s photos put viewers in the plane with him as he glides over 640 acres of dynamite-flattened hilltops, carved through with pristine roads and cul de sacs linking graded house foundations. But there are no houses. No lawns, no pools, no sidewalks. No guard-staffed gates. This is the site of the Ascaya luxury housing development, which has lain dormant since the economic crash of 2008.
Andy Scott. The Heavy Horse.
This sculpture of a Clydesdale Horse has become one of the best known artworks in Scotland. Sited beside the M8 motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, it stands 4.5 metres tall at the head and is made of galvanised steel round bars.

Lets make this happen!
I found a blazer at my local goodwill, and a picture pattern on the internet that showed how to create angel wings with safety pins. I slightly adapted the pattern by using different sizes of pins in different areas than described, reshaping the wings and using them on a blazer rather than a jacket. That idea was incredible. and I love how it turned out. :)- Tara G.
