    Being a student of literature, journalism and communication you automatically get this spectacular sight for everything around you. You learn how to differentiate between appearance and reality, and to find out meaning in meaningless objects. While doing my document design exercise of point, lines and planes I came across these beautiful images, which speak for them. I hope after going through these images and article you will have a different perspective when looking at things around you. As well as have a good knowledge about photography.

To figure this out, you might have to set up some equations of motion and estimate using what you learned in physics. Well, the truth is, humans can only sprint up to 23 miles per hour and only for a limited distance of 200 meters.
