If you’ve ever dreamed of cuddling up in a contemporary treehouse, the 7th Room Treehotel may be your new favorite getaway. Designed by Snøhetta—a design office that dabbles in landscaping, architecture, interiors, and brand design—the floating bungalow is tucked away in Northern Sweden and perfectly positioned for a sweeping view of the Northern Lights. The 7th Room is elevated by twelve 10-meter stilts and is beautifully built around the towering trunk of a pine tree.
How exactly do you photograph a bullet in mid-air? Just ask Dutch photographer Lex Augusteijn, who specializes in this exact craft, and captures the moment a flying bullet hits objects such as eggs, light bulbs, and drops of water.
“The images are frozen by the flash speed,” says Augusteijn, who works a scientist in the Netherlands. “I can go as low as 1/40.000 by reducing flash power. The bullet is real, though fired by a coil gun, which has much less energy than an air rifle, which again has lower energy than fire arms.”
“It is all controlled by a laptop, releasing the drop, opening the shutter, firing the flash and shooting the bullet. No triggering required.”
