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.

Viscous-Looking Photos of Models Completely Encased in Honey

Viscous-Looking Photos of Models Completely Encased in Honey | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Los Angeles-based photographer Blake Little covers the human body in honey and captures the sweet, sticky results. The series is titled Preservation, and it features images of nude or barely-clothed models that are coated from head to toe in the amber-colored liquid. This simple act seems to transform the subject from an animated figure to a sculpture frozen in place.
After pouring buckets of honey onto the models, Little allows the substance a moment to flow and dribble. The viscous goo cascades from its forms and creates long, elegant drips that both exaggerates and elongates the figures’ poses. Since honey is a shiny liquid, it encases the bodies so that while we still see the people, they are often unrecognizable as the glossiness diffuses the finer details. Watch the video below to see how the images were created (this contains some nudity).
Little's alluring photographs are featured in a book about the project, also titled Preservation, that will be released on February 28.…

Celebrity Couples Kiss and Cuddle Inside Vanity Fair's Oscar Party Photo Booth | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
What's a party without a photo booth? At Vanity Fair's Oscar party, while photographer Mark Seliger was on hand capturing striking celebrity portraits, another camera was snapping up sweet moments between Hollywood's famous couples. Channing Tatum, Ethan Hawke and Apple's own Jonathan Ive were just some of the men who brought their significant others into Vanity Fair's minimalist photo booth. With just the words "Vanity Fair" branded above their heads, couples were given the full freedom to express themselves. While some hilarity ensued, for the most part, couples shared endearing moments which came in the form of a small snuggle or a full blown kiss.

The Life of Vivian Maier, the Nanny-Turned-Photographer Whose Incredible Story Was Nominated for an Oscar | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Vivian Maier may have been virtually unknown during her lifetime, but she will go down in history as one of the most iconic photographers alongside the names of masters like Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson. The subject of an Academy Award-nominated documentary titled Finding Vivian Maier, Maier and her story have fascinated the public since her impressive body of work was unearthed and spread like wildfire across the internet several years ago. Although the documentary didn't take home the coveted Oscar this past Sunday, fans of Maier everywhere can rest assured knowing that the woman behind the camera has achieved the recognition that her remarkable talents deserve.
Born on February 1, 1926 to a French mother and an Austrian father in New York City, Maier spent much of her childhood moving back and forth between France and the United States. In 1956, she settled down in Chicago, where she spent the next 40 years working as a nanny. Later likened to "a real, live Mary Poppins"…

15 Photos That Will Make You Fall in Love with the Adorable Ermine | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The short-tailed weasel, or stoat, is an adorable little character that always looks like he's always up to no good. The animal goes by the name ermine when it's in its pure white winter coat. In the spring and summer, its fur is a reddish brown. The photo above shows the ermine in Italy's Gran Paradiso National Park. It was shot by photographer Stefano Unterthiner. In the winter, surrounded by snow, you may not notice the presence of this little creature, unless you spotted his beady black eyes and his tiny pink nose.
If you're curious about this cute animal, you can read all about ermines on the ESF website. "They are active at all seasons, and in winter move on the surface of crusted snow and tunnel through soft snow, stopping occasionally to thrust the head above the surface, apparently to determine the route of travel."

Rescued Canine Gets an Incredible Dog House Modeled After the “Up” Home | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Two years ago, a sweet abandoned dog found a home with a man named Steve Minty. He’s a huge fan of the Pixar film Up, and he even named his canine pal “Dug” after the beloved dog character. And now, Dug has a fantastic new home fit for her name. Minty’s best friend, Esteban, nominated him for the YouTube show Super-Fan Builds, where they construct one-of-a-kind items for super fans. They decided to build Dug her own miniature flying dog house affixed with a bevy of balloons - just like in the movie.
Prop maker Tim Baker and his team began by roughing-out the wood frame, and afterwards the magic starts to happen. They meticulously worked to get every detail right, down to the shingles, weather vane, and garden hose. The entire process is really impressive, especially when they formed the cluster of balloons. For that, they created a giant mold using over 750 tiny plastic eggs that mimicked the shape of the real thing. There’s even a miniaturized Carl that looks out the window.

A Reddit user captured this incredible phenomenon, in which the ghostly silhouette of a Jeep Cherokee is frozen in ice, in the parking lot of a North Carolina hospital. The rare occurrence is attributed to a couple hours of rain during freezing temperatures as the Jeep sat in the elements.
When the owner returned, the engine heated up enough to free the vehicle from its icy entrapments, but not enough to melt the fantastic, inadvertent sculpture that created a perfect impression of the Cherokee’s front end. The photos quickly went viral, eventually getting picked up by major news outlets including the Weather Channel.

Student artist Barbara Bernat creatively re-imagines Hungarian paper money with designs that look like pages from a naturalist’s sketchbook.  The artist created these beautiful banknotes for a fictional currency, the Hungarian Euro, as her thesis project. She etched the drawings on copper plates, which allowed her to produce prints recreating the quality and detail characteristic of secure paper currency.
“This subtle and refined form of reproduction enabled me to imitate the original technique used during the production of banknotes, intaglio printing,” the artist says on her website. “My goal was to create a complete series with clear design that transcends the tradition of banknote making.”

Determined Artist Makes a Beautiful Illustration for Every Single Disney Film | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Vancouver-based illustrator Rafael Mayani put himself up to a mighty challenge. In chronological order, he would watch every single Disney movie, and then he would create an original illustration based on each. Since its first movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was released in 1937, to 2014's hit Big Hero 6, Disney has released a total of 54 feature films. For this personal project, the 26-year-old made sure not to count the movies that went direct to video, like Mulan 2 or Pocahontas 2, he only concentrated on full length feature films.
Rafael's Disney Challenge began back in April 6, 2013 and was finally completed over a year and a half later, in December 2014. As he told us, "I didn't have much experience with illustration, so each movie took a long time to complete. But I was really motivated, so it never felt like a burden or anything."
Rafael created a whole website dedicated to this project. Not only does he show you his beautiful illustrations, he gives you some…

Stunning Life-Like Animal Sculptures Made with Layers of Galvanized Wire

Stunning Life-Like Animal Sculptures Made with Layers of Galvanized Wire | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Kendra Haste uses the ubiquitous galvanized wire and transforms it into life-like sculptures of wild animals. By layering, fraying, and sometimes painting it, she’s able to mimic the anatomical appearance of creatures both large and small.
Haste masterfully crafts the wire so that even subtle muscle definition is visible. And while she highlights solid forms, Haste also manipulates the material to look as fluffy as a lion’s mane. It’s these many characteristics that make wire the perfect medium for her. “No other material I have ever used has been able to suggest the sense of movement and life, of contour and volume, the contrasts of weight and lightness, of solidity and transparency - values that I find in my natural subjects,” she explains in an artist statement.
Animals have been a fascination of Haste’s throughout her entire life. Her sculptures are depictions of individual creatures that she’s encountered, often after studying them in their natural habitat. It’s their…

This futuristic combination of a wind turbine and an apartment complex harnesses natural energy while providing sustainable housing. The Dutch Windwheel Corporation drew up the design with the port city of Rotterdam as its intended location.
The steel-and-glass structure is comprised of three inset circles that would each perform a different function. The outer ring holds slowly rotating cabins for visitors who want to glimpse the best views of the city. The middle ring is host to 72 stationary apartments for long-term residents, hotel rooms for short-term guests and some commercial space. Finally, the inner circle offers space for the wind turbine. Waste produced by residents in the complex would be turned into biogas, while rainwater would be harvested and recycled for utilities.
Aside from the wheel’s practical and innovative capabilities, it has much to offer Rotterdam from an aesthetic and economic perspective. If built, the windwheel would become a landmark and tourist…

Two Adorable Squirrels Take Photos, Play Catch, and Build a Snowman | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Russian photographer Vadim Trunov recently captured a couple of adorable squirrels having some wintertime fun. Set in a snow-covered forest outside of Voronezh, Russia, the cute and action-packed photos feature the creatures interacting with some human-made things as well as playing catch with a pine cone.
Trunov helped facilitate this lively play. He set out snowballs and a snowman and left his Canon DSLR alone, attached to a tripod. After the duo entered his makeshift set, they enthusiastically explored the props and even tussled over a nut. Trunov’s photographic experiment makes for a delightful, candid look at what squirrels do when we aren’t around.

Creative DIY Project Turns Coffee Pot into Adorable Terrarium

Creative DIY Project Turns Coffee Pot into Adorable Terrarium | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In this clever DIY project, an ordinary coffee pot that provides energy to millions of people in the morning has been repurposed to give life to plants. With just a few easy steps, a spare coffee pot can be transformed into a whimsical terrarium.
On her blog A Charming Project, creator Enid says coffee and plants have been linked in her mind since childhood, when her mother and grandmother fertilized overgrown devil’s vines with coffee grounds. In fact, Enid designed this creative terrarium as a tribute to her grandmother. “When I think plants and coffee, I'm instantly reminded of my grandmother,” the artist says. “She was one classy lady, and she loved her houseplants and roses almost as much as her afternoon coffee.”
The simple project can be completed with just a spare coffee pot and a few relics of nature. You can find the full instructions on Enid’s blog here.

This amazing prototype, rolled out by green architectural and manufacturing firm ArchiBlox, is billed as the first pre-fabricated, carbon-positive house. The one bedroom, one bathroom unit ingeniously generates more energy than it uses. The first model was recently installed as an exhibition in a public square in Melbourne, Australia, but the company plans to make more for resale.
Designed to face north, the small unit harnesses natural forces to minimize the manmade carbon footprint and actually gives back to the environment. Underground tubes help cool the house, and “airtight building envelope” technology keeps energy from escaping wastefully. The roof features solar panels, which power the unit, plus green space for growing herbs and vegetables.
The unit is not only environmentally friendly — it’s resident-friendly, too. The sleek, clean design offers living spaces within a light and airy interior. The home's flexible joints allows it to grow with the occupant’s needs: Panels can…

Elderly Chinese Women Wake Up at 4AM Every Day to Take Care of 1,300 Stray Dogs

Elderly Chinese Women Wake Up at 4AM Every Day to Take Care of 1,300 Stray Dogs | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
While the Lunar New Year is traditionally spent with family and loved ones, five elderly Chinese women from Weinan, Shaanxi Province chose to spend the holiday taking care of over 1,300 stray dogs, just as they do every day. Six years ago, Wang Yanfang established a dog asylum as a way to save strays from the pound, where they could be euthanized. Since then, the 60-year-old and four other volunteers—all in their 60s and 70s—have gotten up at 4AM every morning so they can prepare 400 kilograms of food for the hungry pups. The shelter, which is supported solely by donations, makes sure that these animals are fed, cared for, and even groomed regularly.
Despite their good intentions, local media reports that the elderly women have faced other challenges like being bitten by dogs who are less tame than others. But in the end, it's all worth it to a selfless animal lover like Wang, who has adored animals since she cared for her first dog back in 2000. According to Tencent News, she says,…

Powerfully Revealing Portraits of Mothers' Bodies After Childbirth | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Arizona-based photographer and body positivity advocate Jade Beall seeks to provide an alternative to the heavily airbrushed images of women presented by mass media through her series The Bodies of Mothers: A Beautiful Body Project. The project, which has been published as a book, portrays women in a raw, honest way rarely seen on the covers of magazines or on TV screens. Untouched by Photoshop, the beauty of these mothers' bodies is depicted in every wrinkle, scar, stretch mark, and fold. Thick or thin, tall or short, young or old, these diverse women bare their so-called "imperfections" proudly as signs of their love, labor, and life.
Beall was inspired to embark on a life journey of empowering other women through photography in part due to a history of discomfort with her own appearance. Pregnancy and giving birth to her son Sequoia ultimately helped her reevaluate her own feelings of self-worth and respect for her body. Through her images, she hopes to make everyone feel worthy of…

Hollywood's elite came out to play last night at Vanity Fair's Oscar party.

This year, Vanity Fair even gave us a behind-the-scenes look at the portrait studio that Seliger and his team built. As you can see in the shots, a checkered floor, distressed walls, a staircase and some vintage props, like a sofa and chairs, all helped to create a beautifully timeless look. You can watch a mesmerizing timelapse of the studio being built from the ground up on Vanity Fair's Instagram.
"As guests leave the red carpet and enter the main #vfoscarparty space, they’ll have the option to stop by the studio and stake a claim to immortality—or at least strike a few portfolio-style poses."

Luckily for us, the year has come and gone, and we’re pleased to share some of the other fantastic photos that she created.
Jung has the incredible ability to craft pictures that are simultaneously imaginative, dramatic, and beautiful. Her photos often feature young people alone and surrounded by natural splendor. Women and men lay among babbling brooks, run along the tree-lined shore, and take in the sweeping sights of foggy fields. The ethereal works are, in Jung’s words, trying “to convert my daydreams into images.” You can’t help but feel a dream-like magic when you see them.

CT Scan Reveals Mummified Monk Hidden Inside a 1,000-Year-Old Buddha Statue | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
A secret has lay hidden inside this statue of Buddha for nearly a millennium. What looks like an ordinary, traditional figurine was recently revealed to contain the mummified remains of an old Chinese monk identified as Liuquan of the Chinese Meditation School.
The statue, which dates back to the 11th or 12th century, left China for the first time last year. The Drents Museum, an art and history museum in Assen, the Netherlands, arranged for the the thousand-year-old relic to receive a CT scan and an endoscopy at the Meander Medical Centre in Amersfoort. Although it was previously known that there was a mummy inside the statue, this scan unveiled a new, exciting discovery: the existence of several scraps of paper with ancient Chinese writing left in the place where the monk's organs used to be.
The statue has since been taken to Hungary, where it will be on display at the National Museum of Natural History in Budapest until May 2015.

Illustrator Creates Imaginatively Cute Portraits of Kids Based on Photos | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it

Illustrator Maria Jose Da Luz creates adorable, playful portraits inspired by a single photograph. Her work focuses on children, and she digitally draws their likenesses in a sweet, cartoonish style. Round faces, rosy cheeks, and over-sized heads are all part of her illustrations' charm. You can’t help but want to smile at the sight of their cute faces!
In addition to illustrating each kid, Da Luz often adds a fun twist to every drawing. She’ll transport the subject to another environment or include a buddy in their portrait. One photograph shows a child dressed in a Superman t-shirt, laughing as he’s being tossed into the air by an adult. Da Luz’s rendition still features the kid in mid-air, but this time it’s with Batman. It’s these amusing details that make her works memorable.
If you want one of these portraits for yourself, you’re in luck. Da Luz is available for commissions through her Etsy shop.

Ethereal Landscape Photos Captured During Pitch-Dark Nights | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Don’t let these gorgeous, ethereal photos fool you - they were taken in the pitch-black darkness. For the past two years, British photographer Paul Thompson has pushed the boundaries of night photography using a large format camera. His images make up a series titled Moonlight, and they feature desolate views of the land and sea cloaked in beautiful, often-hazy colors. They’re moody, atmospheric, and feel like scenes from fantastical film.
Thompson’s locations are usually so dark that it’s impossible for him to see his camera when he opens the shutter. Because of this, it requires exposure times of up to two hours, and the results are unpredictable. He only attempts a picture once, and he doesn’t test how it might look beforehand. So, his photographs are at the mercy of the surrounding environment. Clouds and tides change over the course of a couple of hours, and Thompson is never sure how each image will unfold.

Ingenious Beehive Extracts Honey On Tap Without Disturbing Bees

Ingenious Beehive Extracts Honey On Tap Without Disturbing Bees | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
A new invention by father-and-son team Stuart and Cedar Anderson could drastically change the way we harvest honey from beehives. Created and tested by the Australia-based beekeeper duo over the last decade, the Flow Hive uses specially designed honeycomb frames and a spigot system to extract honey "on tap," eliminating the labor and disturbance to bees often associated with traditional honey gathering.
How exactly does the system work? The Flow Hive relies on innovative Flow frames that allow honey to be harvested directly without opening the hive and disturbing the bees. The manmade frame consists of honeycomb cells that are already partly formed. The bees quickly complete the comb with their wax, filling the cells with honey and capping them as usual. When a beekeeper turns the tool like a tap, the cells split vertically inside the comb, forming channels that allow the honey to flow down to a sealed trough at the base of the frame and out of the hive. When the honey has finished…

His colorful images feature a tree frog hitching a ride to the back of a giant horned wood-boring beetle. The adventurous frog, looking like a cowboy at a rodeo, managed to stay on top of the insect for about 5 minutes, even as the beetle tried to fly away. This adorably-strange spectacle was shot near the photographer’s home in Sambas, Kalimantan Barat in Indonesia.
What a fantastic thing to witness! Mp tells Daily Mail, “It was such an amazing moment, the frog just saw the beetle and decided to crawl on top.” Better yet, the skilled photographer showcases the small and gorgeous characteristics of both creatures. Tiny speckles on skin, subtle variations in color, and minute textures are all made visible.
