Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web this week, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography.

Camel case
This photograph by George Steinmetz is a fabulous trick-of-the-eye. Those black camel shapes are actually the shadows cast by the animals. Look at the small white lines below the shadow to see the camels themselves. The image – taken by Steinmetz from a motorized paraglider – is one of National Geographic’s 50 Greatest Photographs.

Elevator ride through history
The elevator that takes you to the observatory at the top of 1 World Trade Center plays a fascinating time-lapse animation showing the history of Manhattan from swamps to skyscrapers. Watch the full video here
