‘Stormlapse’ Photographer Ryan McGinnis Shares His Most Epic Shots of 2014

Ryan McGinnis is a photographer and storm chaser whom we interviewed and featured back in 2011. After years of pointing his camera at newsworthy storms, McGinnis switched things up a bit in 2014 by introducing time-lapses into his repertoire. Although he was still learning, he did manage to capture quite a few amazing sequences showing powerful weather events.

The 4.5-minute video above, titled “2014 Stormlapses,” is a highlight reel McGinnis put together to share his
best time-lapse sequences.

Photo of a Syrian Girl Surrendering to the Camera Breaks the Internet’s Heart

One of the most widely shared photos on the Internet in the past week has been the picture above by Turkish photojournalist Osman Sağırlı. It’s a portrait of a young Syrian girl he encountered back in 2014, who mistook his telephoto lens for a weapon and instinctively threw up her hands in surrender.

“That’s heartbreaking,” says one Reddit commenter. Another writes: “To think a child so young is conditioned to do this just kills me.”

Others questioned whether the photo actually shows what Shaban had originally claimed (that the girl was spontaneously surrendering to the camera). The BBC did some investigation and published an article about the story today.

Sağırlı tells the BBC that the photo shows a girl named Hudea who was four years old when he met her in a refugee camp in Syria in December 2014.



Sitting Down for a Conversation with White House Photographer Pete Souza

The 50-minute interview, which can be viewed above, is a fascinating look into the life, work, and mind of the man who serves as the public’s eye into the White House.

Texas woman says she was looking to release her anger when she broke into a yoga studio and set fire

DALLAS, Texas - A Texas woman says she was looking to release her anger when she broke into a yoga studio and set fire to it, reports CBS DFW.

The door to American Power Yoga in Dallas was boarded up Monday, but the manager tells the station the damage is minimal, and they are moving forward with regularly scheduled classes. Nancy Duarte -- who goes by Suzanne -- admits she's responsible for the damage, and she wants people to know why she did it, according to the station.

"Most people can't understand the smiling mugshot," Duarte said through glass at a visitation room in the Dallas County Jail.

It's an unusual -- nay, strange -- expression for someone who's just been arrested for trying to burn down the yoga studio where she practiced, but says she smiled in her mugshot because, well, she's trying to let go of her anger. That, she told the station, is why she went to American Power Yoga Saturday in the first place, carrying a baseball bat and a can of gasoline.

"I thought it was going to make me happy... to burn the place that had brought me so much pain and suffering," Duarte told the station.
