Images: Wacky Packs

Still remember the “wacky packs” – well maybe not the first series from Topps appeared in 1967. Each of them had a gum in it and a sticker card that was a parody – sometimes in a quite sarcastic way – of the consumer packaging for a well known product.

While the original ones now go for USD 100+ on ebay or other places, San Juan island based designer Chris Minney has created a series of images inspired by these “wacky packs and made them available online in his Flickr stream .

Guess these will also make good small posters for your fridge.

    We recently mentioned that one of us will soon be going on a long travel around this planet so we got a professional digital camera to capture some of the impressions and share them later.

    During the research for the latest in Digital Photography we also came across what is now called High-Dynamic-Range (HDR or HDRI) photography and tone mapping.

    There are a few pretty good tutorials on the web how to achieve these effects and software is now also available to substantially reduce the process steps required (If interested we can provide a list of the best links we found).
