Florence, Italy At Night
It seems fitting that the birthplace of the Renaissance and the “Athens” of the Middle Ages looks positively heavenly at night. The Tuscan capital, replete with earthen-tone arch bridges and enough Michelangelo sculptures to make any art fan weep, it’s easy to see why this scenic city has provided the perfect backdrop for artists throughout the ages. If a Tuscan sunset isn’t in your budget just yet, The Roosevelts has a great gallery of high-quality images for your ogling pleasure.
An Amazing Collection Of Vintage Celebrity Passports
In its pages, a passport tells the story of departures, arrivals, transitions and change. Add to that a celebrity and a few decades for distance, and those stories become that much more interesting. With Visual News’ collection of vintage celebrity passports, we can peer into the travels of everyone from Rene Magritte to Janis Joplin to Johnny Cash. Who knows, maybe the inspiration behind “Star Man” or “Space Oddity” can be found within David Bowie’s passport.
Volcanic Eruptions As Seen From Space
They cause enough of a skirmish from the ground, and thanks to the International Space Station we can gain even more of an insight on their colossal proportions and potentially devastating effects from above.

In the meantime, though, we can ponder these portrait painting-like images courtesy of Twisted Sifter.
