This interesting building is, rather fittingly, the offices of Spanish Selgas Cano Architecture. Naturally, they designed it themselves. I’m not sure how I feel about it. I kind of like it, I like that you can see the scenery around it anyway, but it seems maybe small and narrow… What do you think?
Either way, an interesting concept!

These photographs by Elena Kalis are so beautiful! The dress looks so delicate and light in the water! The colors are gorgeous too. Be sure to check out Elena’s website – her other work is equally dreamy.

I can’t stop admiring these rather surreal pieces by Tyson Skross. After moving to rural Switzerland from Texas at the age of nine, he became intrigued with the odd natural phenomena that he often witnessed. This sort of altered reality and intangibility is what he tries to bring to his work. So strangely beautiful! See more here and here.

I’m really enjoying these pictures from an old Vogue UK! (May 2006, f.y.i.) They’re by the amazing Tim Walker, of course! So inspiring!
I saw these pictures on Black*Eiffel!

These cut paper constructions by Helen Musselwhite are awesome! I love the whimsical scenes she creates. The colors and style are great too!
See an older post with different work by her here! Also more on her site and Beautiful/Decay.

Okay so this is interesting – the video below captures police in Denmark hugging helmet-less cyclists and giving them helmets. I know it’s probably just a propaganda thing, but do you guys know anything about this? Even if it is a stunt for good press, it’s really cute to see. Good effort!

For more discussion of this little topic, see here.

Mikkel -Apr 30, 2009, 10:44PM
Of course this is a pr stunt, but it actually happens in Denmark. Last year the Traffic safety council decided to change politics abouts cyclist, and urged the police to hand out helmets and lights (when seeing people drive around in the night without) instead of giving fines. And so they did.
pruittfpgirl -Apr 30, 2009, 4:23PM
Yeah I did see that! I wondered if maybe they were afraid to hug the ladies since they're guys... maybe they thought hugging a random girl would weird her out or something.... Maybe (hopefully) there are lady cops somewhere hugging and passing out helmets to women???

I love these pretty behind-the-scenes shots from Australian Fashion Week! I can’t get the blue eyeliner underneath the middle model’s eyes out of my head! I want to try it, with a number of different colors. I think it might be something I’d have to wear out at night though, not so much of a day look… What do you guys think?

P.S. Do you think the big bun on the bottom model is all her natural hair??

OK nice to see- interesting comments are always helpful!
quinn -May 01, 2009, 6:45PM
i have done my makeup exactly like that, with a thick line of colorful liner on my bottom lid a lot. i love it in the summer! you can totally work it in the day too, just make the line thinner and more subtle, even try not extending it all the way into the inner corner of the eye. when night comes, just slab more on! i rely on urban decay 24/7 liners to do the job cuz they dont budge. they actually have a color exactly like the one the model is sporting, it's called "electric".

This editorial from Lula Magazine is so awesome! I love drawings on top of pictures! The drawings are by Jo Ratcliffe, who is pretty awesome all on her own…

I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!

I love these beautiful pieces by Zanis Waldheim. I’m always a sucker for colorful art, but these are like geometric color studies times ten! Yves Jeanson has a fabulous set on Flickr featuring nearly 200 of Zanis’ pieces like this. Definitely worth taking a look!
