Jeffco's Favourite Websites

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by Jeffco, Jan 6, 2016.

  1. So I guess most people know I spend a fair bit of time on the interweb looking at various things.

    I look at a lot of funny photos, bike pics, WTF news stuff and occasionally :whistle: I get chance to look at a booby or two :hungry:

    But I also like Architecture, classic cars, history and a whole range of other stuff.

    So I thought I would share some of my favorite sites and if anyone else has one that they too enjoy maybe they can share.

    I will post a new link every week or so with a few items from the site and the address and if you like what you see follow the link and enjoy :)

    Moderators If its uncool posting links to other sites (non of which I have an association to please remove)

    So my first site is Historical Times, I love this site because it shows not just a history but a snapshot of a time gone by.

    Berst France 1944 destroyed German Defences



    Berlin Wall 1989


    Jimi Hendrix taken one day before his death


    An elderly Indian man garlands Che Guevara near Delhi in 1959


    So that's it, if it looks like your thing have a look there is plenty to see.

  9. I am a huge fan of Imgur.com and to a lesser extent Reddit.com. Lots of photos, some absolute trash, but plenty of gems as well, plus searchable for various interest categories, and many subreddits for particular interests. Eg imgur.com/r/motorcycles. And a few places on there where ( allegedly ) boobie pics run free.

  10. Here's an interesting site and a new way of remembering a specific address and finding it....

    what3words | Addressing the world

    What they have done is divide the world into 3m x 3m squares, each square identified by a unique combination of 3 words....
    So the address for Saturday morning practice in Elwood is - strut.snacks.begin (y)

  11. Well folks one week on and imgur reddit and what3words are being explored thanks davidkdavidk & RussellDPRussellDP

    Thought I would add another and this time the site is Deserted Places.

    As the title suggests its photos of abandoned places, everything and anything can be found.

    The site has an menu category that allows you to pinpoint a search for certain locations or themes if you want.

    What I like is that each of the series of 5 or so pictures of a particular scene is preceded by a history of what it was beforehand

    Below is a snapshot of what can be found.

    Inside the abandoned Domino Sugar Refinery in New York

    The Domino Sugar Refinery in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York City used to be the largest sugar refinery in the world when it was constructed in 1882. Ships would deliver sugar cane from all over the world and half of US more than half of the sugar consumed in the entire country was refined in this Brooklyn factory. The business was so successful that in May 1896 the factory's owner, American Sugar, became one of the original twelve companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The refinery's long history also includes one of the longest labor strikes in New York City's history when in 200o, 250 workers went on strike for twenty months protesting wages and working conditions.
    After 148 years of operation, the refinery closed in 2004 and 225 workers were laid off. Since then, the 11-acre site has been purchased by private corporations twice in order to be redeveloped. The latest plan includes a mix of creative office space, market-rate and affordable housing, neighborhood retail, and community facilities. The demolition of the factory's structures began in fall of 2014.






    So that's it folks a truly remarkable site that I have passed many an hour on, hope you enjoy also

    First website is Project unbreakable
    I will let the website description be a guide and for those that wish to, they can follow the link as usual.
    Project Unbreakable is a photography project aiming to give a voice to survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. Project Unbreakable has been featured in media outlets such as Glamour, TIME, Buzzfeed, and The Guardian.
    Its a worthy website, but can be confronting
    Project Unbreakable

    The second website is pure fun and pure genius
    its a website that takes photos of people and then finds an image of a dog in a similar position and posts them side by side for all to see :)
