Mutant fruits and vegetables from Japan

The original title of this post was: Things are not right in Fukushima. I would not want to use it as I think that the pictures were taken much earlier than the incident of radioactive leakage of Fukushima Nuclear reactor in March 2011. In fact some pictures looked more like photos taken as a result of the aftermath of World War II, after Japan suffered the merciless onslaught of the two Atomic bombs. Anyway it is good to bring to everybody's awareness of the danger poised by the mutant vegetables and fruits, as a result of nuclear radioactive effect.

Waves of Hawaii

This guy stands in the water and waits
until the last second to snap his camera
 shutter, then takes a beating when
                                  the wave collapses over him.
Waimea Bay Shore-break surfer pioneer, husband and father of two, Clark Little has gained nationwide recognition on National TV for his photography. It all started in 2007 when Clark's wife wanted a piece of art to decorate a wall at home.
Voluntarily Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in water and started snapping away, capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. "Clark's view" is an unique view of the ocean that most will only be able to experience safely on the land while studying in one of Clark's photos.
Now with a camera upgraded and an itch to get that better shot, Clark has taken this on full time and has moved his office from land, to the inside of a barrel.
Since the recent stir of Clark's work, his images have been run on The Today Show, ABC World News Now, Nature's Best Photography, Paris Match, La Vie (France), Hana Hou Magazine (Hawaiian Airlines), Surfer Magazine, Surfer's Journal, as well as multiple publishers and newspapers in the US and overseas.
The following pictures are selection of his best shots:

The photo "Sand in Surf" as shown below captures sand from ocean's floor being swept up by a monstrous wave and resembles a sandstorm. Clark Little calls it "The Sand Monster". His fans pays as much as $4,000 for his gorgeous photos.

Mutant beings

Chinese newsprint published some pictures and graphics of mutated crossed bred species of half animals and humans. Of course they were products of mischievous imagination of the graphic designers. So long you don't take it too seriously, it could be amusing just to know how they conjectured the ideas.

Oh My!
Their bites are worse that that of Piranhas'.
Two-headed piglet held up by lady for photo-shot.
Guess it can't live long and guess this is a real one.
Is that a mutant pig or what? Nobody knows!
Next we have a double - headed dear. Oh Dear!
But guess this is not a fake.
One single eye baby Cyborg and that's frightening enough!
Hairless bald chicken? with multiple legs?
It can't be real!
Ha, this is a joke! However,
the Bulldog is a reluctant player.

Mischief with statues

Take that, and that!
Don't interfere; can't you see I'm busy?
Wow! My favourite football team
enters the final. Give me five!
Here, get a peck from me! Great performance.
Hey, this latest I-Phone is quite something, you know?
Nice dance step in unison.
Hey, watch your strike, Batsman! That will kill!
Slow, slower will you fellas! I can't keep up the pace!
Ok, I'll take it as a friendly gesture.
The next time I'll call the cops.
Sorry, it's a mistake on my part.
I won't dare to date your daughter anymore!
Nice imitation - you girls practicing for
 the stage dance show this weekend?
Oh it hurts, put me down! Mom, where are you?
Stop that will you? Getting a spanking in
the public is real embarrassing.
I need to feign dead, otherwise I may be eaten alive!
See how far can you go? Gotcha!
Yes, this is the way for Waltz.
Mom taught me the correct steps earlier.
