Throw your photoshop away as these shots show you don't need digital tricks to create an amazing picture.

Weburbanist has posted 15 images that have been taken without the aid of computer enhancement.

This incredible wire frame car is a model created by artist Benedict Radcliffe.

Weird Science Factoid: Mosquitoes like the scent of estrogen, so women get bitten by mosquitoes more often than men do.

Daniel Smith - a long time ago, in a galaxy far away just north of Watford, Daniel fancied himself as a scientist but turned out to be the worst scientist since that bloke who mapped out all those canals on Mars that turned out to be scratches on his telescope's lens. Luckily, he is now not working on the Large Hadron Collider inadvertently creating a black hole that would swallow the world but is safely behind a desk writing this blog, bringing you the fantastical underbelly of nature... weird science.
