Yup

A plot of land sustained both cows and people amid floodwaters at the village of Jeram Perdas in the northern Malaysian state of Kelantan on Saturday. Hundreds of villagers were temporarily evacuated from the area after floods were triggered from the start of the annual monsoon season (Fathil Asri/AFP/Getty Images)

Oh, yeah! I'm loving the manitee action! That is such a relaxing pic.
More manitees please.
Perhaps the occasional dugong would be nice, too.

Thought I'd pull the pic thing away from the bleak.
Here's one of my favourite blokes, in front of one of my favourite paintings, depicting one of my favourite places in the world, The Yorkshire Wolds.

Incidentally, he lives on the same street as my parents.
He painted this picture there.
I took a walk past his house one time, and he happened to be coming out of his house.
I walked over and babbled at him.
He took it pretty well.

Cool, some of those are really good. I've always wondered how people get into work with NGO's, although i know the answer is always to give something for nothing first. Never gonna pay the rent doing that though :(

Winning the Eugene W Smith Grant really helped him, it set him up to travel for another year and Kodak young photographer of the year opened a load of doors as well, this guy has been extremely lucky on a few occasions, but he's definately not taken the easy route. Did fashion shoots in the beginning to pay the bills and part time bar work. He went out travelling to take photos and built his portfolio from just that.
