Fourteen hilarious photos of dog faces to brighten up your afternoon.Fourteen hilarious photos of dog faces to brighten up your afternoon.

I'm going to preface this link description with the following advisory message: if you have found that your afternoon is sufficiently bright enough already than by all means feel free to bookmark this link for later. Otherwise, if the brightness levels are not at the required level of preferred enjoyability then go ahead and view some dog-foolery with this collection of canine camera work. OMG, cupcake!

Some amazing photos of that pesky volcanic ash for you to gawk at.Some amazing photos of that pesky volcanic ash for you to gawk at.

If you happened to be doing some overseas traveling over the past few days you might have noticed a delay or two (possibly more numerous than that). While this would've made for a really good excuse to justify the lack of recent GLM postings, sadly (or happily - depending how you look at it) it wasn't the case. More on that later.

Turns out that twenty-six gigapixels can make for some interesting aerial photography with some astounding details. For instance, try zooming in on that speck off in the distance, it's probably a building.

I am loving some of these National Geographic slideshows (even more so with their new recent web redesign), especially when it's on odd subjects I rarely think about - case in point, carnivorous plant-life. Beware and behold these fearsome plants!

A handy tutorial on how to make your very own fisheye lens.A handy tutorial on how to make your very own fisheye lens.

Another title for this tutorial would have been 'a guide to recycling broken SLR lenses for use with your digicam' (not that there's anything wrong with that). Now excuse me while I scour eBay for a box of broken SLR lenses.

Their low-cost balloon-launch platform reached 17.5 miles high, into near-space. Using the GPS phone to track its location, they found the rig 20 miles away from the launch site 5 hours later.

An artsy macro shot captured whilst splatter painting with the kids. Sure, the end result is a little dark and depressing but it's a nice contrast compared to the fun we were actually having throwing paint everywhere.
