Around the web today; October 19th, 2013

An insanely fast hillclimb run in an open-wheeler Formula car, by a driver who seems to be missing any sort of fear genes. I'd crash and kill myself in the first couple of corners trying to match that sort of pace: http://youtu.be/kGqdcz6bLps



A deliciously raspy TWR Jaguar XJS racing car belting around Donington in the UK, followed by a run at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. Be sure to turn the volume on your speakers up:  http://youtu.be/DpnlwPv60B0

Here's another local clip showing a sibling of the car above, flying around Mt. Panorama nearly 30 years ago, with Tom Walkinshaw behind the wheel: http://youtu.be/c5jtf83eKGs


A street photographer taking his work to the streets of Los Santos in the wildly popular video game Grand Theft Auto V: http://petapixel.com/2013/10/17/street-photographer-takes-craft-video-game-world-gta-v/

He has a tumblr blog where he posts his images here: http://streetphotov.tumblr.com/

And a website with photos from the real world: http://fpgomes.com/


Photojournalism from around the world at the Wall Street Journal: http://blogs.wsj.com/photojournal/2013/10/17/photos-of-the-day-oct-17-3/?mod=WSJBlog



A very cool series of photos combining model cars on small dioramas with real streets, houses and trees; all taken on a cheap point and shoot digital camera: http://twistedsifter.com/2013/10/recreating-the-past-with-model-cars-and-forced-perspective/

His flickr page has many more images, accompanied by behind-the-scenes pictures showing how the lifelike look was achieved: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24796741@N05/
