Images of babies eating

As the last image series including sleeping babies has achieved great success I decided to offer you some more babies in everyday activities - this time eating. This was obvious choice as babies often sleep and eat in the same time, or get to sleep while eat, or whatever but those two things are connected in babies lives. Anyway, here are 10 images of sweet little babies while eating. No need to say some pictures are messy :)

Baby eating its foot! I am going to eat myself!

Images of home-made bread

There is no much things that can be compared to smell of fresh bread. Some says that this smell can be health hazard because many people can't resist to it. Anyway it is one of my top smells, along the one of fresh coffee in the morning, so I decided to dedicate this series of images to the one and only - bread. Bread on this pictures is home-made bread, mostly from black flour. It is my favourite type. So not to drag with words let's get to pictures! Bread:

Images of mortar and pestle

Mortar and pestle is one of the oldest tools used for grinding solid materials. It is mainly used in cooking and medicine, and sometimes probably in some chemistry experiments. Mortar is a bowl that holds materials while pestle is little bat or stick used to crush those materials. Set is usually made of wood, ceramic or stone like granite or marble and metal. Sizes varies from small as ones that can fit into the palm of the hand to much bigger that are mainly used to grind cereals into flour. However, as pictures spoke a thousand words let see how mortar and pestle can look.

This is how mortar and pestle looked in the past. Simple stone with a hollow part and another rounded shaped stone that serve like pestle.

Diving masks photos

This maybe strange subject for post but as I already wrote in the title this blog is about images of everything so diving masks pretty much fall into this description. I am guessing that most of you have used diving mask at least once in your life time. If not, try to do it because diving and snorkeling are great things to do, and diving masks are main part of diving equipment. Diving masks these days are made of peace of glass or plastic which is used to be looked trough, and silicone part which holds mask on divers face. There are many types of diving masks so to make long story short here are some examples in the pictures that follows.
We start with classic one, but very good thou. Large front glasses, and enough silicone to properly align on the face.

Cactus images

I must admit this is my favorite plant. Main reason is that in most cases they require a minimum of care. Small cactus that you can buy in almost all flower shops are cheap, easy to maintain and they often have beautiful flowers. Perfect plant! On the other had I like wild west landscapes and deserts and cactus's are one of their symbols. I also admire adaptation power of this plant which live in the places where there is no abundance water, and yet, it provides water for those who need it. Other interesting thing is that cactus can be large as a tree and also small to fit in your palm. So, not to bother you with my nonsense i will continue with new set of pictures - cactus pictures.
Yes they have spines. Those are leaves that evolved to another shape due to nature conditions.

Images of fractals

To explain fractals I need to cite the biggest authority on this subject - BenoĆ®t B. Mandelbrot who in his book "The Fractal Geometry of nature" defines fractals as: "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,". Fractals are mathematical things but for me they symbolize infinity. Pictures of fractals are mostly computer generated but fractals also exist in nature, mostly in shapes of plants and shells. So this time I present you my choise of fractal images. Enjoy!
Beautiful 3D image of fractal construction.

Emirates A380 airbus images

Some people fly, and some people fly with style. Of course style means money but anyway, all of us which fly with low cost can at least take a peek in one of the most luxury airplanes. Its name is A380 airbus and company is of course Emirates. Airbus A380 is a double deck jet airliner and it is currently the largest passenger airliner in the world, and the ones that fly for Emirates are most luxurious in the world. So take a peek into A380.

Image of Airbus A380 in all of its glory. Four engines, and two decks. Some airports have needed to readjust their terminals to accommodate this plane. No wonder why.

In hand-spinning process it is a part which holds raw material like wool from which person who do the job, usually women, draws the threads. Distaff can be combined with a spindle which is been rotated by fingers, or it can be used with spinning wheel, which is kind of easier way of spinning fibres. Anyway here are ten pictures of distaffs which will make you more familiar to the subject... of spinning.
