not strictly a photo, but the cover of the last Life Magazine that went on sale in 72 is a striking cover. For a magazine renowned for the images of American life/celebrity and the Vietnam war (that war changed photojournalism forever and the way it was viewed by government but that's worthy of a whole different thread) to lead with a cover of just words summed up what the photojournalist aims to convey with their photos

Life Magazine itself is a host of stunning and fascinating photo's....too many to mention, thankfully it's hosted on google.

Oxana Malaya (Оксана Малая) (born November 1983) was found as an 8-year-old feral child in Ukraine in 1991, having lived most of her life in the company of dogs. She picked up a number of dog-like habits and found it difficult to master language. Oxana's alcoholic parents were unable to care for her. They lived in an impoverished area where there were wild dogs roaming the streets. She lived in a dog kennel behind her house where she was cared for by dogs and learned their behaviours and mannerisms. She growled, barked and crouched like a wild dog, sniffed at her food before she ate it, and was found to have acquired extremely acute senses of hearing, smell, and sight.

Weirdo.

At first I thought it was some nutty girl about to pleasure herself on that tree limb :ph34r:

A man-made sun rose over Bikini Atoll on March 1, 1954. Seen here from 50 miles away, the 15-megaton hydrogen blast called Bravo ranks as the largest U.S. test, a thousand times greater than the atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945

Now, in complete contrast....

A russian sub cruises the beach somewhere in Russia.

Reminds me of watching the subs heading up to Faslane from the beach below my aunt's tearoom at Fintry Bay, Cumbrae. Less half naked people of course.

Any idea what's happening in this one, Sooky?

LGM-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

The lines shown are the re-entry vehicles -- one Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons.

That's some frightening firepower right there. Thank goodness the world is a civilised place and use of such weapons should never be deemed necessary.:unsure:
