Great collection of WTF photos. All of them are old and in black and white (or gray).

Ever notice that just about every yacht you see in a local marina look the same?
Not these, my friend.

Photographers have been manipulating imagery since the medium was invented. Time magazine presents this online photo essay of what it calls the 'Top 10 Doctored Photos.'
Now this is what I call school spirit. Best license plate ever?
An amazing selection of photos of the Normandy in the first days after the allied forces landed in 1944 and the way it is today.
A collection of rare Star Wars photos.
PingWire is an (almost) live feed of images being posted to yfrog. (Likely 18+)

On 12 May 2009, USAF Senior Airman Christopher Bush looked below him and took this spectacular picture of the USAF B-2 Spirit stealth bomber soaring over the Western Pacific Ocean
Also, you can get the large version here.
Fremont Solstice Parade 2009, June 21. My girl is with the blue-decked folks at the start of the set. After that, there's a lot of cool costumes, and then after that, naked bicyclists. If you got an aversion to bush, tits and dick, it's time to mo-o-o-o-o-o-ove on, cats and kittens.
Lots of good pictures in the Flickr stream for this, but I wanted to lead off with this one.
SNICKT! (May be NSFW.)

Between 1936 and 1945, German photographer Hugo Jaeger was granted unprecedented access to Adolf Hitler, traveling and chronicling, in color, the Fuhrer and his confidants at small gatherings, public events, and, quite often, in private moments. Here, and in several other galleries on LIFE, we now present never-before-published photographs from Jaeger's astonishing -- and chilling -- collection.

A neat pictorial depicting landmarks around the world both before/after earth hour, and during earth hour.
Clicky goodness on most of the pictures, for a fade from "before" and "after".
Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 14 years. Rotterdam's heterogeneous, multicultural street scene remains a major source of inspiration for Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, although since 1998 they have also worked in cities abroad.
They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people's attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity. The apparent contradiction between individuality and uniformity is, however, taken to such extremes in their arresting objective-looking photographic viewpoint and stylistic analysis that the artistic aspect clearly dominates the purely documentary element. (NSFW due to occasional boobage.)
In amazing leap of technology, Japanese scientists have created a method of displaying information stored in the brain onto a computer monitor, potentially allowing the future possibilities of dream recording, thought image projection, and numerous other uses.

Ye Old Tyme Halloweene!
Last week, thousands of zombies descended on Trinity-Bellwoods Park and (much to the delight and fear of passersby) dragged themselves through the streets for the annual Toronto Zombie Walk.
A photographic collection of faces found in everyday places.
Very interesting graphical look into the Paralympic games at the latest Olympics in China.
Sadly, I expect there's lots of Image Macro fodder, here.

Another collection of impressive advertising, almost all of which are new to me.
While some may not have "changed the world", they are certainly among some of the best and most powerful images in history.

Pictures of people and what they totally look like.
A marvelous collection of portrait photos of "interesting people".
A little bit of self-promotion here. I got some shots of the tornado that tore through Colorado yesterday from my back yard. It was an intense few moments. The processing is exaggerated to make the cloud formations more visible.

Lots of celebrities and the Muppets they (scarily) resemble.
It's time to get your swerve on.
