Hi Katie! Yes I did list them in order - however I'm afraid the girl named Katie who won has already written me back, so it seems that it isn't you! I'm sorry! Don't worry though there will be more giveaways! xoxox P

perforations

This is a really unusual residential home in Bangalore, India, designed by Cadence. The walls are concrete, and as you can see, perforated with shapes that look kind of like leaves, bringing the outside in. I can’t help but wonder if it has any other windows (I would hope!) but I do really like the way the sunlight pokes through the “leaves” and onto the walls inside!

We’re loving these inspiring shots of model Erin Wasson lately! What’s funny is that we have the magazine right here, but we simply cannot figure out the title of the magazine! We’ve looked all through it and there’s no title, nothing in the contents even. What kind of magazine doesn’t let you know what you’re reading? Apparently, ones with fabulous pictures of Erin Wasson in them. Ha ha!

That is so strange. If you figure it out, post it-- I'd love to know!

There is something very arresting about these photographs, don’t you think? They’re by Italian photographer Andrea Galvani, who is also a Photography Professor at the Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti di Bergamo. Something about the horse photos in particular put me in mind of Tim Walker, but maybe with muted colors. Do you see it too?

Brillant. The photo of the tires reminds me of the anti nazi work done by Toyen.

Recently our Web Operations Manager, Heather, helped to organize a really fun event here in Philly, the Independance Day Scooter Rally! It lasts for a whole weekend, and this year was very successful, with over 150 people who showed up from all over- two ladies even came all the way from Oklahoma! Heather kindly shared a few really cool pictures from the rally, check them out!

These soft photographs are from Joyce Tenneson‘s series Intimacy. This is such a wonderful way to photograph flowers – I love it!

I think you all will love this wonderful time-lapse video by Caitlin Parker!
This is a time lapse video in progress. I am an artist. I built this dollhouse and put it in my yard. I planted North East Native plants in and around the house. A hunting camera/motion camera is set up to take stills of the house as it evolves, decays from weather, and as animals wander through. This is ongoing- so far only two and half months have been documented. I plan on one year, to watch the seasons change…

Really cool concept. I think I'd like it more if all the shots were day. I like all the animals you see at night, but the back and forth between night and day shots was a little distracting. Awesome project though.

I’m feeling so inspired by these pretty rolled bird books! Anyone know anything about their creator?

Those are gorgeous! I could totally see a wall papered with long strips of bird books. Maybe in a loft? LOVE it.
