No idea why I like this so much but it's pretty nice!
Is that Chris Christie?
How many billions of times is this reposted every month?
Knowing /r/pics, I had to check to make sure this actually WAS paint.
Looks like a Gray Malin photo
from the thumb nail, I thought it was a ww2 battlefield map.
The texture of the paint gives it a 3D feel
Pretty sure they are skiing down a mountain. And the camels are just chilling in the desert below. Obvs.
There was a picture book I think when I was a kid that had a 3D style like this and I thought it was really cool... does anyone know what it was?
This is hanging in an art gallery in my town in Florida... Thought it was really cool when I saw it, now it's here.
Ohama beach - June 6, 1944
Assumed this was /r/misleadingthumbnails and assumed it must actually be a beach, then got confused when I looked more closely at the image. :-)
This is how things were conveyed before drones.
At risk of sounding pretentious, every time I see this reposted I think, "Also known as a 'painting'."
Don't get me wrong, I really like the piece. But at the end of the day it's simply a painting done in a very particular style that involves heavy strokes, dabs, and layers to pull together a successful minimalist composition -- which in and of itself is a beautiful juxtaposition. That is, high volumes of medium used to minimal effect.
Are red and yellow flags indicating the safe area to swim a global symbol? I had always presumed it was an Australian thing and so this would more obviously a beach to Australians.
If you squint your eyes slightly, you'll see blurry specks of paint
