Bobblehead dolls, also known as bobbing head dolls are sort of a novelty toy. They have unusually disproportionate heads, being much larger and oversized for the body. A spring attaches the body to the head, usually in the neck portion of the doll, causing the slightest disturbance of the figure to bob the head back and forth or side to side. Bobblehead dolls are usually placed on car dashboards or in the rear deck, where their heads bobble constantly as the vehicle is in motion. They are extremely popular with marketing campaigns and have been used extensively for various brands, personalities, and events.
Photo enthusiast samuelorsaumell used the Bobblehead doll as inspiration for his digitally manipulated images of famous celebrities. The series is quite simply called Celebrity Photoshop Bobbleheads, and it features some of today’s most popular stars from both television and the big screen.

Just when you think you’ve seen the whimsical, you are again surprised to see something even more fanciful. Artist Sonia Rentsch creatively takes twigs, branches, leaves, flowers and even some fruit and creates with them, automatic pistols, revolvers, high caliber bullets, and even a hand grenade. Obviously, these ingeniously created pieces are merely replications of actual firearms, and needless to say, are absolutely harmless. From a distance however, the images look deceptively real. Quite wittingly, she calls the harmless series Harm Less. Rentsch created the project for the January Biannual, a publication committed to “beauty, intelligence and timelessness.” Photographer Albert Comper was in charge of taking the shots of each of “weapon.”
Some significant change was announced by Yahoo early this week for Flickr as far as features and design are concerned. It was mostly good news for free accounts, and perplexing choices for Flickr Pro account users. One of the most notable changes is free users are now no longer limited to a given number of photos. Instead, all users have a 1TB space limit for full resolution photographs. That removes the main distinction between users of free Flickr accounts and Flickr Pro. It is also reported that Flickr Pro accounts will slowly be phased out, in favor of an upgraded version.
