Perfect contrasts

Feeding swans

Plan all you want, but most absolutely perfect moments tend to require a bit of serendipity, rather than choreography.

Take, for instance, the example of photographer Marcin Ryczek, who recently happened to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time to capture one of the most visually perfect pictures I’ve recently seen. In the photo, a man in dark clothes stands atop a snowy bank in Krakow, Poland, feeding ducks and swans as they float in the water (which is as dark as the snow is bright). Further delineating these stark contrasts, the photo is in black-and-white. All of the elements combine to turn a simple feeding into an almost unreal expression of contrast and symmetry.

A perfect harmony.

Model Kitchen – Cesar Casier

Food and fashion, a funky match

Yesterday, I discovered this project and my mind went crazy! New in cookbook world: a fresh cookbook made by the 24-year-old Belgian (yep!) male model: Cesar Casier.
In his book, you can discover 75 eat-clean recipes and really gorgeous food and fashion photos. I instantly fell in love with both the book and Cesar.
This book (and also that pretty plate please) definitely go onto my Christmas bucket list (: for sale as from november 7th in Belgium, yay!

Say Something

What would you like to do before you die?
Say Something is a new city-project by an anonymous Ghent based person. He or she wants to create an open discussion among the Ghent-population. The open questions are on the posters, the dialogue depends on the different responses of the participants.

How does it work?
When you see a poster of Say Something in the streets of Ghent, you can answer the question by SMS or email. The most remarkable answers are posted on the Facebook page. That’s where I found this picture (and the one of Budapest which I posted a few weeks ago). I’m love love loving these new creative projects in this vibrant city.

I think I’ll put coconut-pineapple bowling on my to-do-list for this summer.
What a wonderful waste of time ^^

Coffeespot

Look what I got!

My very own write-it-yourself coffeebible for (home)baristas, coffee lovers or geeks. In the near future, I will write down al my sensory experience and objective observations of my favorite (and new!) coffee spots. You can buy this Coffeespot booklet (which is made by @nottooarty) here.

Hero // Stippling, Pointillism

This video shows the making of  “Hero” a drawing of Miguel Endara’s dad, which is composed entirely out of 3.2 million ink dots.  I think it’s a great motivator for endurance and hard work. Especially considering that it’s not just the act of making thousands of dots, but it’s also managing to compose all of those dots into a (rather funny) image of his father.

Beyond amazing! (:

PS: I’m wondering how many hand-cramps the guy had though…

All grown up

Can you also to keep looking at childhood photos of yourself? Funny to see how innocent you looked like isn’t it?The Argentine photographer Irina Werning has that kind of fascination too. But not only for her own retro pictures, even more for those of other people. She photographs the same person (x number of years older), in exactly the same setting, pose and outfit.

Back to the future, as she likes to call it.

Take a look at her pictures of the grown up man and woman below. I really want to do the same with these pictures of my sister & me, but I wonder if we are still that flexible to fit into a bucket…

Not a problem at all to make the cake though!

Polaroid Love

A story about (Polaroid)love.

During the 50 years of the existence of the Polaroid Camera, already 5 billion polaroidpictures have been made. If all these pictures would be gathered, they would certainly fill a big crater on the Moon.  Nice to know is that about a quarter of the world population is pictured on them. Each one of these pictures displays a small story, just like this movie.

 
 
 


					

Memory

5 years ago, but still fresh in my memory:

The O’Neill Boardbabe Contest at Wakeboardcenter (Moen, Belgium).

-I became 2nd! ^^-

Facepark

In these times where social networks are a kind of new religion, Diesel comes with something against it. At the outdoor event Facepark – a wink to Facebook – people exchanged their digital identity for analog one. They walked around in cardboard profiles, tagged each other with stickers and walked through a living Farmville. An action that is cool in all its clumsiness made for the outlaws just like Diesel likes to do it. (Watch the video below to check out the event!)

Or as they say themselves : “A stupid idea That Can Change The World. But it Probably Will not. “
