This has nothing to do with dinosaurs. But it is a super cool video of a lightning storm in Toronto. I imagine a Torontosaurus Rex would roar about as loudly as the thunder in this storm…see the video…
Sam Javanrouh is from Iran but currently resides in Toronto (as you might have guessed from the number of Toronto-themed photographs he’s taken). The son of a cinematographer, Javanrouh explains his personal and professional background a little more in this interview. His pictures are great, but he has a special knack for aerials and photos taken from and of high places. He also takes really nice lightning photos and video, which I imagine is hard to do.
Started in 2003, his award-winning photoblog, Daily Dose of Imagery, has a new photo every day. The collection makes for a very pleasant and sometimes even awe-inspiring slideshow. He also has a flickr stream and vimeo profile where he showcases his work. The man is even on IMDB. Have a twitter account? Start following!
Another cool site of his features panoramic pictures of cities. The fact that the site has such a specific focus reflects the artist’s love for cityscapes and urban photography, which he expresses in the inerview above and is apparent in most of his work. I find it impressive that he only began his career as a photographer in 1999. By looking at these pictures, though, it seems like it’s what he was born to do. Better late than never!
