Inspiration: Krinsky Menachem

The greatest thing about photo manipulation is that we get to recreate what's inside us, in our minds and heart. You can wonder though places that you could never visit, all in a split second. Menachem is an artist that manages to travel to this imaginary scenarios through his work. I really this kind of work, thoughtful and peaceful.

20 Beautiful Fireworks Pictures

The best thing about festivals, new year celebrations or most of big festivals, are the fireworks!! I've never met a person that didn't like it, or that wouldn't get touched by its magic.

Beautiful HDR Pictures - Part 4

Who doesn't love to see some HDR photos, this effect that brings such a new life into a photo, continuing with this beautiful series I bring another set of great HDR photos to satisfy your needs of inspiration.

Outstanding Illustration in Photos

I really thought we've already done a post about this guy, Tebe Interesno. I've seen his work earlier this year, and now on ffffound I've ran into him once more. He's a superb illustrator from a country with another writting system (probably Russia), and makes outstading illustrations in photographs. His work is really moody, and for me, it has its own soundtrack, going from Yesterday (The Beatles), passing thru the Bittersweet Symphony (The Verve), going to Viva la Vida (Coldplay). But this is just me going all soundtracky. Anyways, you guys should really check this guy's work. It's fresh stuff, totally worth the visit. Hope you all like it! For more, visit his portfolio. Cheers! ;) If you know him, then you've seen this before.

Stunning HDR photos of waves

After a long winter the spring has arrived, and that means that summer is just around the corner. At least for us down here in the southern hemisphere. To celebrate that, and to follow up on our series of HDR Photos posts we selected some stunning HDR photos of beaches and waves. Enjoy ;) The next two photos are not HDR but they are simply amazing.

Awesome Photography by Ram!

An idea places you only half way away from that cool work you're looking for. The other half depends on how you manage to make that idea happen. Ram Martinez, a Venezuelan photographer, has cool ideas, and works it out really smoothly. Beautiful girls, cool background, a little texture and we're done. Playing around with patterns is also sweet. You guys should really check this guy out. After checking these few pictures, go to his Flickr photostream. Cheers! ;)

Inspiration: The Roots Photographs

The Roots, one of my favourite bands, has been a great source of inspiration for me for a long time. They are one of these old school hip hop groups who play live with a whole bunch of instruments, not with dj's. Here are some great pohotographs from their live show in Oslo. All the photographs are taken by artist 5ive

Save Polaroid

I cannot believe that there might be some people who actually don't like Polaroid pictures. What I do believe and understand, is the cause why so many people are still in love with it. Polaroid has its own mood. It is alive. I don't have one, but I'm developing these wishes for one over the years. Today is kinda hard to find polaroid films for sale in other place than the internet... and people who have the camera, are actually making film stash. No wonder... it cannot die. It won't die. There are tons of Polaroid pics in Flickr, and there are even sites dedicated to it, like Polanoid. So, I hope you enjoy this selection! Cheers. ;)
