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.

Photographer's Visual Diary Reveals Vulnerabilities That Transcend Reality

Photographer's Visual Diary Reveals Vulnerabilities That Transcend Reality | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
We've featured glimpses of Robby Cavanaugh's portfolio in the past, but now this creative photographer has invited us to take a closer look at his captivating work.
For Robby, photography is a way to cope, using friends, family, and even himself as the model for each of his stunning portraits. His work is a personal journey that reveals vulnerability through his art, with each photograph acting as a page of his visual diary, delving deeper into a timeline of life experiences. Fueled by imaginative worlds found in video games and Japanese animation, his inspiring work transcends what we believe to be reality.
Although post-processing is a part of his work, Robby often spends about a month to plan/build props and sets to bring his vision to life. He likes to capture as much as he can within the frame (in situ), in order to create visuals so clean, they look like a pure yet alternate reality. His work makes you question what is or isn't real and asks only that the audience finds some…

Photographers Cleverly Remake Old Master Paintings

Photographers Cleverly Remake Old Master Paintings | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In 2011, Booooooom creator Jeff Hamada began The Remake Project, a competition that challenged professional and amateur artists to recreate their favorite old master paintings as contemporary photographs. The results were fantastic, as creatives painted their bodies, concocted elaborate sets, and struck a pose just like their classic counterparts. Several years later, this project has taken its next logical step as a publication released through Chronicle Books titled Remake: Master Works of Art Reimagined.
This book features a side-by-side look at submissions from the contest, and they offer an incredible range of photographic interpretations. Some artists reenact the scenes flawlessly, while others present a looser comparison, opting to capture the essence of the piece rather than an exact depiction. Whatever the style may be, the photos are a clever way to remember and reinvent art history. Remake: Master Works of Art Reimagined is currently available through the Colossal Shop.…

Photographer Captures the Poetic Beauty of a Smoldering Rose Bouquet

Photographer Captures the Poetic Beauty of a Smoldering Rose Bouquet | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Warsaw-based creative studio Ars Thanea captured an incredible image that will make you see roses in a whole new light. Typically, we think of roses as a symbol of romance, but what happens when this iconic flower is set aflame? The answer to this unusual question lies within the studio's snapshot, titled The Ash, featuring a smoldering arrangement of roses. While the photograph is actually meant to be a reference shot for an illustration, it stands out in its own right. The soft petals are transformed into delicately crumbling ash, while orange embers glow amidst the darkness. Ultimately, the photo can be described as poetically beautiful.
"We all dream sometimes, about something we want to have or do," Ars Thanea explains on Behance. "Luckily, if we have enough patience, a real willingness and at least a pinch of determination, we are able to make our dream come true. Our experience has also taught us to have the best and the right people beside you, because they are the main…

Interview: Photographer Christopher Swann Captures Whales and Dolphins in All Their Glory

Interview: Photographer Christopher Swann Captures Whales and Dolphins in All Their Glory | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
British photographer Christopher Swann captures stunning shots of cetaceans like whales and dolphins both above and beneath the surface of the ocean. With over 25 years of experience diving and running whale- and dolphin-watching holidays around the world, the photographer has become finely attuned to the behaviors of these majestic creatures, enabling him to venture close to them for intimate and eye-opening portraits.
Swann's fascinating images are almost minimalist in appearance, focusing on clean composition and subtle tones to bring out the elegance of his subjects up close. Some of his newest photos, which he shared exclusively with us, reveal a black-and-white aesthetic that Swann has been experimenting with lately. Unexpected details are highlighted in these achromatic shots, such as the glimpse of an orca seen through aquatic ripples, or the understated gleam of a dolphin's tail right below the surface of the water. Subtle and refined, the images bring to life the romance and…

“Star Wars” Scenes Reimagined as Centuries-Old Japanese Woodblocks

“Star Wars” Scenes Reimagined as Centuries-Old Japanese Woodblocks | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
The Rhythm Project fuses a centuries-old craft with popular culture, combining characters from the Star Wars franchise with the art of Japanese woodblock printing. Featuring three prints, the endeavor reimagines the films’ figures and settings in the style of ukioy-e, which is a popular Edo-era genre depicting the likes of kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, and landscapes. Here, Rhythm Project takes the exquisite details and soft coloring found in these prints and applies them to the 21st century.
The cultural mashup features famous scenes, including Darth Vader brandishing a lightsaber and the epic battle on Hoth. Each piece was hand-carved by a wood sculptor and a separate block created for every color in the print. Afterwards, another craftsman combined all of the blocks onto paper. Rhythm Project produced a total of 600 limited edition prints, 200 of each composition. They’re currently available through the Japanese crowdfunding site, Makuake.

Calamity Mugs Remind Us That Things Could Always Be Worse

Calamity Mugs Remind Us That Things Could Always Be Worse | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Illustrator Don Moyer is back again with a mug that will definitely put your bad days in perspective. At first glance, the Things-Could-Be-Worse Mugs appear quite ordinary with its classic blue willow china pattern. But when you look closer, you'll realize that it features a parade of pirates, giant frogs, zombie poodles, and many other catastrophic creatures. While you may have woken up on the wrong side of the bed, at least you're not living in Moyer's frightening world!
As of right now, the mugs are being funded as a set of four on Kickstarter and will be available to backers as soon as November 2015. Not only will they match Moyer's ongoing Calamityware series of dishes, they will also remind us that a rainy day isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things.

Floating Villas Designed with Underwater Bedrooms to Sleep Among Fishes

Floating Villas Designed with Underwater Bedrooms to Sleep Among Fishes | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
For those wanting to live comfortably on the sea, BMT Asia Pacific has conceptualized a series of villas that will float like pontoons. Known as SeaScape, this project offers an alternative in luxury housing on the sea, to compete with the yachts that dominate the current market. The standalone structures are designed to have a variety of add-ons for residents to customize the ship to their exact specifications.
Each SeaScape villa can include a sun deck or a covered pool, which would make the triangular boat as large as 1,800 square feet in size. If that seems too big, there are smaller, 700 square-foot units also available. Regardless of dimensions, all homes will boast a deck and an open room design that allows for unobstructed views of the surrounding sea. There’s also a proposed underwater bedroom that's undoubtedly the most fantastic part of the villa. Here, residents can walk down a set of spiral steps into a clear acrylic cylinder and sleep among the fishes.

Mom Fulfills Promise to Best Friend by Adopting Her Four Daughters after Their Mother Died of Cancer

Mom Fulfills Promise to Best Friend by Adopting Her Four Daughters after Their Mother Died of Cancer | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
When single mother Elizabeth Diamond was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer in 2014, her only concern was what would happen to her four daughters when she was gone. Fortunately, her best friend Laura Ruffino was right by her side to reassure her that her girls would always be taken care of.
"She said, 'if anything ever happens to me, I want you to take my girls,' and I instantly said, 'okay,'" Laura, who had known Elizabeth since childhood, told 7 Eyewitness News. "As she started to weaken, you can imagine the fears that I had for the girls and being without her."
Tragically, those fears became reality this past April when Diamond lost her battle with cancer. Laura, her husband Rico, and their own two daughters immediately opened up their home and hearts to Elizabeth's young children. The Orchard Lake, NY couple adopted the four girls as their own, doubling the size of their family.

There's nothing like the special bond between a boy and his dog—unless, of course, it's the friendship between a boy, two dogs, and a horse! Stasha Becker (a.k.a. @northwestmommy), a mother and photography enthusiast who lives on an island north of Seattle, documents the adorable adventures of her 7-year-old son Julian, his two big-hearted Newfoundlands, and their family horse who lives on a nearby farm.
When we last wrote about Stasha and her son two years ago, Julian only had one big, furry playmate to run around the island with. Since then, the boy and his 8-year-old pooch, Max, have added new pals to their entourage: Bruce, a 2-year-old Newfoundland, and a regal stallion named Vizon. Throughout the years, Stasha has continued to capture the sweet moments between Julian and his four-legged friends as they pose in front of the garage door, play outside, and visit Vizon and his fellow horses at the farm.

Kiev-based photographer Anna Remarchuk (aka @annaremarchuk) creates colorful compositions using beautiful blooms tucked inside of envelopes. Remarchuk developed this project after finding a bunch of old envelopes that belonged to her great-grandfather, as well as receiving snowdrop flowers in the mail. “At the table there were those envelopes. I saw them together and decided to make a photo,” she told the Instagram blog. This visual connection was the start of her aptly-titled #envelope_series.
The Instagram-based project features a variety of flowers, delicately arranged to appear as though they’re budding from their packages. To begin her aesthetically-pleasing compositions, Remarchuk buys the flowers or gets them as gifts. She carefully considers the colors of the blooms and the envelopes’ paper, making the perfect combinations and then capturing the photo on her phone.

Grumpy Cat may have found her counterpart in this adorable (and equally as grouchy) pup named Earl. Quickly becoming known as the Internet’s “most morose mutt,” this puggle has a seemingly permanent scowl on his face—no matter how many times you pet him!
Despite the grumpy expression, Earl’s human Derek Bloom says that the pooch is very friendly towards other humans and dogs. The cranky look is just due to his overbite and wrinkles, so don’t let Earl fool you. He enjoys snacks, sunbathing, and chasing balls around the park just like any other dog.

Explore the Earth's Beauty in These Spectacular Shots of Zion National Park's "The Subway" | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
One of the most well-known highlights of Zion National Park is the Subway, a spectacular section known for its tube-like slot canyon located deep within the Left Fork of North Creek. With its uniquely multicolored walls, streams of water gushing over slippery rock floors, and the abundant waterfalls that fill large potholes to the brim, the magnificent Subway has long been a huge attraction for both photographers and hikers.
Although the Subway section itself measures less than a quarter-mile in length, visitors must be prepared to hike 9.5 miles over the course of 7-12 hours. Depending on the route, the strenuous journey may involve swimming through icy water, crossing creeks, scrambling over boulders, and rappelling down into the canyon. Judging from these photos, however, the challenging trip promises to be well worth it for the chance to see such an extraordinarily beautiful natural formation.

Spectacular Photos of Chicago's Skyscrapers Piercing Layers of Fog and Clouds | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
For the past six years, Chicago-based photographer Peter Tsai has been on a quest to document the Windy City's famous skyline from above the clouds. His project, titled Cloud Chicago, paints a magical portrait of the metropolis blanketed in dense fog. Iconic skyscrapers like the Willis Tower (more commonly known as Sears Tower) and Chase Tower pierce through a sea of low clouds and mist, making for a spectacularly surreal sight.
Tsai faced numerous challenges on his journey to capture these shots, mainly "knowing when to be up at an observatory to see the fog, and having access to somewhere high up inside a great building," as he shared on 500px ISO. He gained access to the Hancock Observatory and the Willis Tower Skydeck, allowing him to take contrasting photos from multiple perspectives. As for knowing when to get into position, Tsai says he watched the lake for signs of fog rolling in before rushing to get to higher elevation with his camera. He would often wait for hours at the…

New Ocean-Inspired, Hand-Cut, Layered Glass Sculptures | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Sydney-based artist Ben Young is back with his latest collection of hand-cut, layered glass sculptures inspired by the ocean. Like his previous pieces, his new sculptures illustrate the beauty of the sea through translucent waves crafted in combination with rocky grottos, palm trees, drifting boats, waterside homes, and tiny figures on the shore.
To construct his breathtaking works of art, the self-taught sculptor, surfer, and boatbuilder goes through a complex planning process in which he sketches concepts, creates plans, constructs models, draws templates, and makes custom jigs before cutting layers of clear sheet float glass to be laminated into solid seascapes. Lighting is essential for bringing the final forms to life, as it can make or break the illusion of space, movement, and depth in each stunning piece.

The Palmitas district in Pachuca, Mexico was recently beautified with a vibrant mural by a youth organization known as Germen Crew. Joining forces with the Mexican government, the massive project encompassed 20 thousand square meters and painted the surfaces of over 209 houses. The ambitious street art utilizes bright, marbled colors to visually connect all of the buildings as they lead up a hillside — it’s instantly eye-catching.
In addition to making the neighborhood a more dazzling place, the project was also a tool for social transformation. Jobs were created in order to complete the creative endeavor, and 452 families benefited from the exterior painting. And perhaps best of all, the community was directly involved in making the fantastic mural happen. Germen Crew got to know the residents, planned workshops, and talked with them about the colors they’d like on their house. The result is a powerful work of art that the citizens can take ownership in, creating a positive energy…

Adorable Foal's White Patch Looks Exactly like Another Horse | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
England's Flying Hall Riding School didn't realize that they were getting two horses for the price of one when Da Vinci the foal was born. Right above his front legs and along his short mane, the young horse has a white marking that looks exactly like the profile of another horse. Since the bottom part of Da Vinci's mane is also white in color, it actually appears as though this additional horse is running right alongside the chestnut-colored foal.
While this equine marking is definitely unique, it isn't Da Vinci's only trademark. “The chestnut horses have irregular patches but they don’t normally make something as recognizable," owner Wendy Bulmer told Daily Mail. "He's even got a little white heart shape on his bottom as well.” With these artistic markings as his permanent birthright, it seems only fitting that this adorable foal was named Da Vinci.

Using paint and strategically placed bodies, artist Trina Merry and her team have creatively reimagined the 12 astrological signs. This impressive body art project is aptly-titled Astrology Symbols, and to pull it off, 60 flexible models were painted and posed over the course of a year.
Thanks to Merry’s incredible talents, you must look closely to see that these astrology signs are formed by people. In painting models’ entire bodies — even their hair — she disguises them, transforming multiple people into one cohesive-looking symbol. Often, there’s a central person posed with secondary figures who offer their arms and legs to become a bull’s horns, a scorpion’s tail, and a crab’s pincers.

Innovative Chinese Company Assembles 3D-Printed Modular Home in Just Three Hours | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Thanks to new 3D printing technology, an entire house can now be built in less than three hours, as demonstrated by Chinese company Zhuoda Group. Last week, in front of an audience of journalists and curious bystanders in Xi'ann, construction workers used a crane to stack six 100-kilogram units on top of each other, assembling a two-story villa complete with furnishings, electricity, and plumbing. Viewers were then invited to explore the interior of the house, where they were able to take a peek at two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a utility room.
Approximately 90 percent of the modular house's construction was completed off-site over the course of 10 days, according to Zhuoda Group R&D engineer An Yongliang. Compared to the six months it might ordinarily take to build a villa, Zhuoda Group's efficient process saves both time and money, costing less than $564 per square meter. Because of the modular design and steel frame, the house can withstand earthquakes, and…

Japan's Largest Treehouse is Built Around a Towering 300-Year-Old Tree

Japan's Largest Treehouse is Built Around a Towering 300-Year-Old Tree | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Famed treehouse creator Takashi Kobayashi is the mastermind behind Kusukusu, a sprawling structure built around a towering, 300-year-old camphor tree in Atami, Japan. Officially the largest treehouse in the nation, Kusukusu is the result of collaborative work between Kobayashi and Hiroshi Nakamura of NAP Architects for the Risonare Resort.
After 3D-scanning hundreds of points on the tree, the team created a steel trellis that threads throughout the branches, forming a support system that's both architecturally sound and visually arresting. What's truly amazing is that the self-standing structure doesn't touch the tree at all, leaving it unharmed and free to grow further.
Construction on the treehouse was completed in March 2014. Now, guests of the resort can enjoy the view from up high as they explore the coffee stand, picnic area, and mezzanine of the treehouse. Visitors can also engage in athletic activities like zip-lining amongst the branches and foliage of the wooded grounds.…

Snapshots of deformed daisies growing in Nasushiobara City are going viral online, causing many people to speculate that the mutated flowers are a result of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant located about 108 miles northeast. Beginning on March 11, 2011, an unknown quantity of radiation leaked from the power plant after it was damaged by a deadly earthquake and tsunami. The devastating disaster not only took thousands of lives and homes, but also sparked fears about the effect that the radiation leak could have on residents and the environment in the future.

A year ago, photographer Jesse Holland's parents gave her baby daughter a hat as a present. On a whim, the Victoria, British Columbia-based mom photographed her daughter and her dog wearing the same hat, and a new photo series was born.
Putting a new spin on the "who wore it better?" concept, Holland regularly captures portraits of her 2-year-old toddler and her 5-year-old Boston Terrier on their adventures together. Whether the duo is exploring the great outdoors, reading a book, or lounging in bed, each diptych shows them in a similar pose, in the same setting, and sharing identical clothes and accessories. Not only is the sweet project a fun way to engage with both child and dog, but it also serves as a precious documentation of the pair as they grow older and bigger together. According to Holland, "The baby is now a full-on kid and the dog tolerates being dressed up much better now."

Artist's Amazing Invention Offers Handicapped Children a Fun Way to Paint

Artist's Amazing Invention Offers Handicapped Children a Fun Way to Paint | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
From a young age, Dwayne Szot knew that he wanted to be a different kind of artist. “I knew growing up that I was never going to be this kind of art guy who put paintings on the wall in a museum,” Szot told The Huffington Post. “I wanted to be the kind of art guy who made something that was going to create social change – that was going to make a difference. And there’d be a usefulness to what I did as an artist.”
Szot's artistic dream was inspired by his childhood, which was spent in the Midwest's foster care system. Specifically, the creator was inspired by his disabled foster siblings, who constantly had to adapt to the world around them, trying to live life like other children in spite of their setbacks. For instance, Szot recalls helping his sister, who suffered from cerebral palsy, catch the school bus by pulling her behind him in a wagon.

Towering “Skysphere” is a Hi-Tech Home with Gorgeous 360-Degree Views | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
New Zealand-based graphic designer and engineer Jono Williams has built a towering, solar-powered structure that offers 360-degree views of the surrounding rural landscape. Known as The Skysphere, it stands at 33 feet tall and contains 270 square feet of circular living space, constructed around a giant column that includes steps leading you into the unique apartment.
Williams originally planned to build a treehouse, but after months of designing, abandoned the idea for this ambitious design. He liked the concept of an unconventional building that could exist anywhere, such as a forest, hilltop, or even in water. This project was completely DIY, and he took classes to teach himself everything—from welding to wind simulation testing—so that he'd know what to do as he went along.
The most eye-catching feature of The Skysphere is its 6.5-foot-tall window that bathes the room in natural light. Although anyone can see inside the space, Williams made sure that you can lower the curtains for…
