Who run the world!? Cats!
Cats do whatever they want and we let it happen. Seriously, how can we say "no" to those sweet faces?
We can't. And we won't.
We will continue to let them rule our house (and our lives) with zero regrets.
Matheiu Stern is a photographer and a filmmaker who brought to life cat photos of a little girl that didn't want her kitten to be forgotten so she put his photos in a time capsule 120 years ago: "Someone in my family told me about a possible time capsule in our old family house, after investigation I found a box dating from around 1900 judging by the objects and the technic of the photos found inside. I then decided to develop them using one of the oldest ways to make photography prints: Cyanotype", he wrote on his YouTube channel.
Mr. Geert Wegge is a nature photographer since 2013 and looking at his work would leave you asking "How did he do it" as each photo is a masterpiece, telling a story.
His amazing works include photographing wild squirrels in their most unique, magical, and playful nature.
Around 6 years ago, Weggen came across a fox in his doorstep. After giving him food to eat, the little fox started coming back to his balcony. After a few weeks, this fox started playing with Weggen's photography props. Soon after, birds and squirrels followed.
The red squirrels at his photos look like pro models and after months of gaining their trust, he has managed to photoshoot them in adorable and creative settings like riding a toy dragon, playing chess, eating a small cone of ice cream etc.
When asked how he comes up with his amazing photography ideas, he explained to My Modern Mat: "I have always been a fantasist, a dreamer. Most of the time I see things that were not there according to the people around me. I would say they were wrong. The world is a big place for dreaming and fantasy. It is one big wonder. Ideas come the whole the time and they seem to never stop".
He even built an entire outdoor studio made out of wood, trees, and of course plants. Geert has his little secret in luring the squirrels into his beautiful outdoor studio: "Food. Mostly it is about that. If I did not have food they would not come."
Ever since NYC passed the law that banned dogs on the subway unless they fit in a bag, people have been coming up with creative ways to transport their pups, such as, placing a giant IKEA bag around the bigger doggos.
Now, there's an Instagram account dedicated to all the dogs, in bags, in NYC.
Sometimes, humankind just makes us smile. This is one of those times.
Photographer David Lloyd's Bond of Brothers image, which features a pair of male lions, took home the People's Choice Award at this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Sometimes we spend years mistreating animals to force them to perform certain acts. Or to behave in a certain way. And we would never in years of such behavior towards these majestic animals, be able to capture a moment so pure and natural. And in the spirit of that majesty, are these regal lion memes that will have you feeling like you too have (had) a claim to the Iron Throne.
