Mad Quickies: Stolen Paintings Recovered, Data Visualization of Crying, Coincidence Photography and More!

Uhhhhhh sorry the Quickies are late today. I’ve only just stopped sobbing from last night’s episode of Game of Thrones. Let’s all cheer up a bit. If we can.

Speaking of crying, Robin has been tracking and quantifying different aspects of her life. Here, she records and uses data to visualize all the times she’s cried over the course of a year. -Via Jim

There’s only a few days left to enter the prestigious National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year contest. Got what it takes?

What would the world look like if the physical and virtual worlds collided? -Via Jim

This is making me seriously happy – For severeal years, photographer Denis Cherim has been working on his Coincidence Project. He documents those strange moments in life when things seem to line up in just the right way.

If my dad had been a photographer, this creepy-ass project by Joshua Hoffine seems like just the sort of thing he’d have come up with.

Stolen old master paintings, taken from Verona’s Museo di Castelvecchio, have been recovered on an island in Ukraine.
