FM.Marche.Itani Si Che BELLISSIMA✪Le ❙t e Amo<3

The Marche is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. The Italian name Le Marche is the plural of marca, and literally means "the Marches", originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.
The Marche are located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi linked the Marche along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes.

Stunning Aerial Views of Iceland

Stunning Aerial Views of Iceland | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
On a recent trip to Iceland, Montpelier, France-based photographer Sarah Martinet had the opportunity to fly over the landscape in a plane with open windows. During the aerial tour, she captured these breathtaking shots of the Land of Fire and Ice from a bird's-eye view, showcasing the country's extreme natural beauty from a unique perspective.
Iceland—already a photographer's dream for its abundant waterfalls, volcanoes, geysers, and icebergs—is transformed into a stunning series of bold textures, prominent shapes, and twisting lines etched upon the dramatic landscape. Countless rivers snake in between craggy cliffs or over vividly green plains. Azure lakes stand out in stark contrast to the barren land surrounding them. Snow-capped mountains, so large and imposing when viewed from the ground, are reduced to minuscule features scattered throughout the images.
To see many more gorgeous aerial shots of Iceland, check out Martinet's gallery on her website.

Digital Composites Capture Bustling Energy Along the Streets of Singapore

Digital Composites Capture Bustling Energy Along the Streets of Singapore | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Shooting Singapore Street Composites is a collection of images in which photographer Danny Santos documented average scenes of strangers going about their daily lives along the streets of Singapore. The catch is that each image is actually a product of multiple photographs digitally merged together.
For the 4-week project, Santos set up his tripod in various locations and photographed a single scene for anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Afterwards, he reviewed the images, selected specific elements from the shots, and merged them together into one visually intriguing final scene.
By blending together the various pieces, Santos was able to freeze time into a single arrangement. The results are a fascinating collection of street photography where people are placed in perfectly organized patterns of walking. "Singapore is such a multifaceted place that you can’t help but see and feel the diverse energy of the crowd as you move from one place to another," explained Santos. "From the…

Fragmented Black and White Scenes Create Beautifully Abstract Formations | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
L.A.-based photographer Kevin Saint Grey captures a calming energy throughout his striking black and white photographs. Narrowing in on just a fragment of a tall building or an isolated tree surrounded by sky, his minimalist approach results in beautifully abstract formations.
When Grey looks at a scene, he naturally composes the shot in his mind before actually clicking the shutter. The results are a dramatic combination of strong contrast, diagonal lines, and geometric forms that divide the scene into intriguing shapes and patterns.
Grey believes that every component within a composition has to work together in harmony with each other in order for the final photograph to work. "The most important aspect of an image for me is balance," he explains.

Beautifully Haunting Self-Portraits That Are Filled with Emotion

Beautifully Haunting Self-Portraits That Are Filled with Emotion | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
This elegant collection of self-portraits by London-based photographer Mariell Amélie is filled with soft color palettes and strong lighting that lend to the haunting aura throughout each image. Amélie captures unbelievable emotion throughout her work, which quickly consumes the viewer and creates a quiet, meditative visual experience.
Amélie grew up on a very remote island called Andøya, above the Arctic Circle in Norway and, as an only child, she spent a lot of her time alone, observing nature. She became interested in photography at a very young age and has been producing these amazing self-portraits across the past 8 years.
Throughout her work, the self-taught photographer captures herself as a single figure often surrounded by vast landscapes or small interiors, which creates the sensation of loneliness and isolation. "My self-portraits are quite personal and it is something I really enjoy doing," explains Amélie. "It's almost like meditation. I don't think of anything trivial,…

Artist Rides Handcrafted Three-Wheel Dinosaur Bicycle Across Norway

Artist Rides Handcrafted Three-Wheel Dinosaur Bicycle Across Norway | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
It's hard not to laugh when looking at photos of Markus Moestue riding along on his self-built dinosaur bike. However, the creative project is actually intended to be quite serious. The Norwegian artist developed the completely bizarre mode of transportation to travel across the bible belt of Norway as a form of protest. Moestue explains, "It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."
To create the project, the artist welded together three different bicycle frames to produce a unique vehicle that would support his intended concept. He used a basic kitchen knife to hand-carve the dinosaur shape out of styrofoam, producing the head and the tail of the animal separately. The material was coated with epoxy glue and a glass fiber coating and then painted reds and oranges to mimic the rough, scaly coat of a velociraptor.

Gritty Black and White Photos Capture the Dynamic Energy of Tokyo's Streets | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Japanese photographer Tatsuo Suzuki captures the dynamic energy of Tokyo in his gritty, black and white street photos. With a background in law at the prestigious Waseda University, Suzuki didn't start pursuing photography until 2008, but his striking images showcase his natural talent at documenting the spontaneous, everyday moments around him.
With a stylized aesthetic that makes use of deep contrast, heavy grain, longer shutter speeds, and motion blur, Suzuki's photos paint a picture of a lively, almost chaotic, metropolis. Armed with his camera, an eye for composition, and an impeccable sense of timing, the photographer creates a stunning visual collection of the eclectic characters who live in his city. From the young women with piercing gazes, to the skateboarder napping on the sidewalk, to the man dressed in a Pikachu costume, each person both blends into and stands out from the bustling crowds that have become synonymous with Tokyo's urban landscape.

Adorable "Pet Camper" Is a Miniaturized Trailer for a Small Dog

Adorable "Pet Camper" Is a Miniaturized Trailer for a Small Dog | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
We have campers for humans, so why not dogs, too? Pet owners that love to pamper their pooches can now provide them with tiny kennels that are designed to look like the smaller version of what we’d take on vacation. Called the Pet Camper, it was created by Judson Beaumont of the Vancouver-based Straight Line Designs.
Beaumont says that the idea for the product came to him several years ago after his daughter asked him to build a doghouse for her puppy. Since then, he’s designed four different body styles of the small trailers that are fully customizable. The materials, size, style, and color can all be tailored to your liking. You can even include a personalized license plate on the Pet Camper.
The trailers aren’t meant for dogs larger than 20 pounds, although the company has been approached to build larger models for bigger canines. And while human-sized trailers are meant to be all-weather, this doesn’t apply to the Pet Camper. Straight Line Designs recommends that the small kennels…

Edible LEGO Bricks Are Fully Functional for Building and Snacking

Edible LEGO Bricks Are Fully Functional for Building and Snacking | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi has combined two very wonderful things - chocolate and LEGOs! The Japanese creative designed a modular system for producing the edible bricks that actually seems to work. So, you can now have fun building a LEGO sculpture and later enjoy those same blocks for a delicious dessert or snack. It’s the perfect excuse to play with your food.
To form the LEGOs, chocolate is first poured into precisely-design moulds. It’s set to cool, and once that’s done, the now-hardened candy is popped out and used like any regular LEGO. We see that Mizuuchi has used short blocks comprised of dark, milk, and white chocolate to form small, geometric characters. He’s also experimented with the longer, rectangular bricks, and it seems like the possibilities for creation is endless. That is, until they start to melt. But, the fact that he’s fused the two should delight both chocolate and LEGO lovers alike.

Photographer Captures the Spirit of Different Eras Through Portraits of His Children | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In early 2012, New York-based photographer Tyler Orehek created The Vintage Project, a fascinating series that pays homage to different eras of the 20th century through meticulously staged photos starring his two young children, Tyler and Lauren. Using authentic antiques, convincing props, period clothing, and carefully selected backgrounds, Orehek momentarily transports the viewer to another time and place through his vintage-style portraits.
From the luxurious lifestyle of an affluent man in the Roaring '20s, to the bleak spirit of the Great Depression, to the funk and groove of roller skaters in the 1970s, Orehek manages to capture the spirit of the time period in each image. Although his son and daughter were only three years old and two years old, respectively, when they began modeling for the series, they embody each role with a combination of innocence and maturity.

Endless Skyscraper Proposes a Vertical City in a Single Structure

Endless Skyscraper Proposes a Vertical City in a Single Structure | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The skyscrapers of the future aren’t going to just be buildings, but will function as vertical cities. That’s according to SURE Architecture, at least. Endless City is a fascinating proposal that transforms the skyscraper into an upright ecosystem. It’s a mixed-use tower that is wrapped in huge ramps that are like streets and connect different areas. This project was designed for the SkyScrapers & SuperSkyscraper Competition where it took home the top prize.
Endless City is meant to exist in London, and it’s made up of six steel tubes located at the top that support two ramps. The tubes enclose different elements that are influx within the building including energy, waste, and water. Its overall shape attempts to maximize passive energy and reduce artificial lighting, cooling, and heating needs. When these things are required, they are distributed vertically along the ramps and are linked with bridges. The “endless” ramps meander throughout the skyscraper starting from the ground…

Singapore has a beautiful waterfront and a street food heritage that some feel needs reinvigorated. Intending to jump-start the conversation about it are SPARK Architects, who unveiled a proposal for a mobile, reconfigurable, and sustainable floating cooked-food center (also known as hawker center). Called the Solar Orchid project, it’s a pop-up shop that could potentially appear in numerous locations with a variety of vendors who operate within its pods.
The design features a protective canopy that’s a solar-energy generating, inflated pillow-top with thin-film photovoltaic cells. There are multiple floating, compartmentalized areas, and each houses a different street food purveyor. The pods accommodate cooking stalls and have built-in exhaust, water, gas, electrical, waste collection, water recycling services, and table settings. They are modular, meaning they can be clustered together depending on their locale. And when it’s time to clean up, you won’t even realize that they were…

New York City-based, China-born artist Cai Guo-Qiang kicked off his solo exhibition The Ninth Wave with a bang—literally. After sailing a boatload of 99 fake animals down the Huangpu River, Cai got to work on the other pieces in his show at Shanghai's Power Station of Art, including the explosive series of gunpowder drawings titled Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.
Four porcelain reliefs, each representing a season, were decorated with gunpowder and then set ablaze by Cai at an event that drew a large crowd of spectators. Adopting a different method of ignition for each drawing, the renowned artist used everything from fireworks to pellets to strips of explosives to detonations beneath fireproof sheeting for the pyrotechnic display. Once the last of the dying embers had been stamped out, beautifully subtle images emerged. Ashy layers highlight the delicate aesthetic and intricate details of flowers, trees, and birds in this contemporary take on traditional Chinese motifs.

20-year-old photographer Felicia Simion, who recently reached out to us to share some of her latest images, has only become more masterful at her craft since we last posted her work three years ago. Rather than confine herself to one genre of photography, the Romania-based creative dabbles in them all, mixing portraiture, landscapes, street scenes, and conceptual photography for a stunning portfolio of diverse images.
Several of her newest photos, which she labels as "dreamscapes," follow silhouetted figures in their journeys across vast, mysterious landscapes. Wandering through surreal vistas such as endless mountain ranges and paths obscured by fog, the subjects appear small and isolated compared to the sweeping, grandiose beauty surrounding them.
According to Simion, this series follows her continuous quest in pursuit of happiness. She told us, "The choices I had to make only to escape the dull, the known and the feared. But through him (the silhouette-shaped little man), I…

Valencia, Venezuela-based artist Gustavo Silva Nuñez creates extraordinary paintings that are so hyperrealistic, they seem to come to life and flow right off the canvas. Submerged in azure pools of water, his subjects float serenely, swim gracefully, splash about, or surface for air with a spray of bubbles. With each stroke of his paintbrush, Nuñez captures every last detail—subtle shades of blue, sparkling glimmers of light, distortions of bodies under the water, myriads of ripples and currents, and much more.
Nuñez adds another dimension to the lifelike paintings with playful snapshots of himself interacting with his creations. Through his Instagram, the artist frequently shares glimpses of his works-in-progress as he poses with them, pretending to hold onto the subjects' arms or greet the swimmers as they break the water's surface for air.

While most people all over the world live in a community with others around them, Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko captures those that choose to turn their backs on this lifestyle. His compelling series Escape documents people who instead live a solitary existence in the wilderness. They make their homes in the Russian and Ukrainian forest and fashion makeshift dwellings from the land.
We see Tkachenko’s subjects appear in different ways throughout the series; some convey a sense of peacefulness as they lay on the trees, while others look gaunt and less at ease. The photographer is sure to show their homes, too, and it’s remarkable to see the different structures that people build and the objects they collect. Surrounded by the lush, green forest, it’s where these individuals have taken refuge from their former lives.
All of these photographs and more are compiled into a book titled Escape, which is available from Peperoni Books.

Photographer Takes Photos of Mimes in Central Park. Discovers It's a Young Robin Williams 35 Years Later. | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In 1974, a photographer named Daniel Sorine stumbled upon two mimes in Central Park and took a few moments to photograph the duo as they quietly performed. Almost 35 years later, the New York-based photographer came across the negatives and realized that one of those talented fellows in the park was actually a young Robin Williams.
During a time when many are mourning the untimely death of the beloved comedian, the images have emerged as just one of the many ways to honor Williams' life. They are a glimpse back in time at a young and lively man who had the future ahead of him. “What attracted me to Robin Williams and his fellow mime, Todd Oppenheimer, was an unusual amount of intensity, personality and physical fluidity,” explained Sorine. “When I approached them with my Pentax Spotmatic they allowed me to invite them into my camera instead of me having to chase after them.”

Rather than arranging foods from one recipe into perfectly aligned rows of ingredients, German artist Nora Luther created this exciting collection where the items burst into the air in an organized chaos. Created in cooperation with Pavel Becker, Recipes is a series of deliciously presented foods in unexpected formations.
Curled pepper slices, wedges of lemon, thick slabs of meat, pinches of salt, and splashes of oil all scatter directly above the serving dish. With the edible elements suspended in mid-air, viewers are left to determine whether the items are falling towards the tabletop or if they are magically lifting up into the air, drifting off into surreal, weightless surroundings.
