This photo of Times Square in New York was originally taken in 1943 in black and white by John Vachon (“Times Square on a rainy day”). Avzam from Shorpy.com coloured it by matching it to the signage from that time. The original is below.
Today’s photo of the day is of the town of Bled in Slovenia. In the gallery above you can see several stunning shots by photographer Aleš Komovec, which shows the iconic Bled Castle perched on a rock, overlooking the lake. You can check out Alex’ 500px page here.
While photographing lilies in a local swamp, a trail of thousands of tadpoles swam by.

The ancient city of Shi Cheng was built 1300 years ago, and has been buried beneath the water in China’s eastern Zhejiang province for 53 years. Dubbed Lion City for the Five Lion Mountain it sits beside, the city lies in a valley that was flooded in 1959 to facilitate the construction of a hydropower dam. Lion City, once the center of politics, economics, and culture for the region, is now 26-40 meters beneath Qiandao Lake, making the city a fascinating time capsule, as a result of the way the water shields the city from erosion by wind, rain, and sun. Check out the gallery above for a tour of this underwater city.
