I am so psyched about this! I adore Instagr.am, and to be honest I often go back through my feed to see past pics. Lately I have been longing to have printed versions to place in stacks around my apartment; instant happiness, no? So much better than sifting through my phone. Just as I was trying to figure out the best (and easiest) way to get this project going I happened to come across Printstagr.am and soon fell in love with all of the sweet options they had available, just check out the Tiny book!

Tiny book – $10 for 3, Mini book – $12 for 2, Poster – $25, Mini prints – $12 for 48

The Sartorialist – Visual Life

Uh-may-ziiing! Probably the site most responsible for my lost productivity, I often rely on Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist to whisk me around the world in search of style and inspiration. Watch the just-released video below to see the short documentary from Intel. I was surprised to hear that there really are only a handful of images a day that he’s inspired to take. Fascinating.

Just taking a moment to appreciate the tiniest of things.

I’m captivated by these images from gifted macro photographer Andiyan Lufti. Hopefully there are more to come on his Flickr page.

And here’s an interesting clip capturing water drops on film at 10,000 frames per second. Kind of cool.

 

 

 



Deep sea pictures

A sea anemone hitching a ride on a crab

National Geographic has some new images of deep sea creatures found on an expedition last month off the coast of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. NOAA has partnered with the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries in a multi-year program that will document Indonesia’s sea life and find ways to preserve the natural wildlife and the integrity and health of the water.

Stalked sea lily

Stalked sea lilies used to line the ocean floors, but have become a rare sight according to one of the scientists on the expedition. The good news is that there were many varieties to be seen in Indonesia.

A 10-armed sea star

I didn’t realize this, but most starfish species have five arms. This guy was found at at depth of 880 feet. The textures and the symmetry are fascinating!

A picture of a deep-sea chimaera

Also known as the ghost shark this guy senses changes in the electrical fields of his prey in order to accurately locate his next meal.

Free-floating sea cucumber

This free-roaming sea cucumber was found at 10,515 feet in freezing water temperatures.

Cardboard cuteness

These tiny cardboard people have been appearing all over Singapore thanks to photographer Anton Tang. I loved the Tweenbot concept from a few months ago, and these guys are just as sweet but are also positioned in some very human situations. It’s surprising how much emotion is captured in these shots. So wonderful! Beautiful work Mr. Tang.

Hill of up-country Sri Lanka by dinusha123

Sometimes I have to search for images like this to remind myself that there are still places in the world that we haven’t managed to destroy yet.

Some of these have already made the blog rounds, but I couldn’t help but to add them here. A few years ago photographer Sharon Montrose opened her line of limited edition prints into a more affordable option so that we could all have the chance to own one (or more!) of these sweet photos.

Here are some of my favorites from the Baby Animals line. See more at The Animal Print Shop.
