This amazing shot was taken by ethnographer and photographer Laura de Reynal. In her photographs, de Reynal has worked to capture the impact of projects run by companies that aim to introduce the internet and other technology into communities where it has not yet become widespread. The above photo was taken as part of a year-long project in Kenya, following 150 new smartphone users in the country.
This striking picture, also by de Reynal, was taken in a slum in Pune, India on a field research trip in 2015. I highly recommend browsing some more of de Reynal’s insightful work on her Flickr page and website.
This arcade machine photographed by Tadashi Hijiya is also a little worse for wear. Though it appears to have been thrown out, at we can take satisfaction in knowing that its final resting place – under the spring blossoms and a rich blue sky – is a stunning one, at the very least.
Jennie Robinson Faber came across what is either a very creative hot take on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, or evidence that the titular princess of Hyrule herself has been up to no good. I guess you could also assume it’s just be where someone called Zelda tagged her name on some trash, but where’s the fun in that?
This forgotten 3DS AR card, spotted on a railway platform by Chihiro Tanaka, is a sorry sight. That huge yellow arrow pointing right at it just beckons you to whip out your 3DS and experience another dimension.
