These amazing footprints worn into the wood are real! Buddhist monk Hua Chi has been praying in the same spot each day (many, many times a day) for over 20 years at his temple in Tongren, China. Hua Chi is 70 years old now, and according to this article, his footprints inspire the younger monks at the temple. “Every day I come here and every day I look at the piece of wood, and it has inspired me to continue to make the footprints myself,” Genden Darji, a 29 year-old monk in the monastery, notes.
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?

This intricate and pretty work is by Magdalena Klašnja, a costume design student at Academy Of Applied Arts, Belgrade. I love how textured it all is – I would wear any of these costumes!

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!
