Raincoats

Because it’s raining in New York, and this is too sweet to go unposted:

“Dedicated keepers at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Nairobi Elephant Nursery in Kenya protect baby Shukuru from the cold and rain, and the risk of pneumonia, with a custom-made raincoat.

Gjon Milli

In 1940 photographer Gjon Milli attached lights to the boots of ice skaters and photographed their routines with a long shutter speed. Nine years later, while on assignment from Life Magazine to photograph Picasso, Milli showed him the ice skater photos. Picasso was so taken with idea that he immediately grabbed a light pen, and the two men created a series of their own.

Bianca Passarge

“Seventeen-year-old Bianca Passarge of Hamburg dresses up as a cat and dances on wine bottles in June 1958. Her performance was based on a dream. She practiced for eight hours a day to do this. So we’re told.”

The Burning House

The Burning House is a website that poses the question, “If your house was burning, what would you take with you?” Above are a handful of photo responses from readers around the world. Each photo is accompanied with a descriptive list. In some cases, the value or sentimentality of an item is explained (ie. a gift from a girlfriend or a hand-me-down from a parent.) In other cases, we are left to our imaginations (ie. the glitter barbie head and toy gun pictured above.)

I definitely recommend a look around – I for one have spent the last couple hours there!

Amy Stevens

Colorful cakes by Amy Stevens. I have always loved baking, but I’ve never gotten into decorating my creations. Amy Stevens has made me STRONGLY reconsider. It’s taking a lot not to run out the door and buy the supplies right now!

About her cakes she says: “This series […comments] on my intense desire to strive for perfection and beauty, while embracing the absurdity of the results.”

Jennifer Booher

Jennifer Booher collects artifacts found on the beach, organizes them, and photographs them. I already wanted to run away to a beach, but this makes it absolutely necessary.

Yusuke Suzuki

These photographs by Yusuke Suzuki make the 5-year-old in me so jealous. And yes, that last photo is a book bed.
