Named after British and American soldier who died in Helman province, Afghanistan, this weird halo-like effect has been spotted around the rotor-blades of military helicopters. It is a result of static electricity that occurs when the CH-47s fly though dust storms.

Flickr have created a set that commemorates the fall of the Berlin wall. What’s great about this is that whenever we pick up a paper we see the same pictures and video: The Brandenburg gate, that guy with the hammer… etc. You know what i mean? Sometimes you need to step back from the same old cliched images and get more of a sense of the scale of the thing and the effect it had on the architecture around it. This set has regular folk who visited in the dark old days to show off their photos which often show the city, not just the wall, and from the angles you tend not to see on tv.
