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.

Infrared Camera Captures the Poetically Desolate Landscapes of Northern California

Infrared Camera Captures the Poetically Desolate Landscapes of Northern California | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
San Francisco-based photographer Nathan Wirth captures "slices of silence" in his beautiful, on-going series of desolate landscapes. The striking black and white images depict solitary trees on rolling hills in Marin and Sonoma counties in Northern California, where marbled-gray skies often cast ominous backdrops over the grassy knolls. It gives us the feeling that at any moment, something could easily go awry.
Wirth’s photos are divided into three series, all under the name Infrared Silence. To give them such a distinctive look, he took the pictures using an infrared-converted camera. Thanks this alteration, what were once low-light scenes and drab skies now take on a striking visual presence— as if they’re not of this world.

Japanese Artist Creates Delicate Watercolor Paintings of Fish Every Week

Japanese Artist Creates Delicate Watercolor Paintings of Fish Every Week | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Tokyo-based artist Yusei Nagashima has been fascinated by fish since he was a child, so it's no wonder that the aquatic creatures have become the sole focus of his beautifully detailed watercolor paintings. Every Friday for the past three years, Nagashima has posted a new illustration of fish on his blog, covering an eclectic range of specimens that differ in size, color, and shape. Rendered in delicate washes of paint with intricate scales and luminous eyes, each fish is a soothing blend of realism and artistic whimsy.
"I was captivated by the form of the fish when I was young," Nagashima says of his childhood in Osaka, Japan. "How it carried itself in the water, the sparkle of its eyes and scales; the lively movements of its muscles when it were caught, its intimidating expression as its throat swelled. Under the incandescent light of the fish shop, they looked as brilliant as stars on a stage. My feelings since then haven't changed, so now I draw fish."

Artist Creates Fantastical Worlds by "Painting with Dreams"

Artist Creates Fantastical Worlds by "Painting with Dreams" | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Artist Erica Wexler paints surreal creations featuring subjects who have a distinctly dreamy disposition. "As an artist, I try to develop paintings that speak to me and to others, through colors and compositions, about the beauty and strength that exists in humans and in nature, specifically women," the artist explains. "I would describe my style as a combination of surrealism, realism, and abstract."
Keeping true to her ethereal aesthetic, Wexler designs fantastical worlds that contain relaxing and romantic qualities. The painter utilizes wood panels and slabs as naturalistic canvases to bring her fascinating, imaginative ideas to life. Using the surreality of dreams as her inspiration, the artist designs an alternate universe filled with subtle colors, flowing lines, and delicate forms of nature.

Adorably Studious Cat is Adopted by a High School, Issued His Own ID Card | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Bubba is not your average feline—this cat is a high school student. He attends class just like any other student, keeps his peers company at their desks, and occasionally takes a quick cat nap in the library of California's Leland High School. "His owners live right next to the school," one student explained. "I’ve just gone to school with him for 6 years now. He sat on my lap and took a nap while I was taking my Spanish final." Since the studious cat truly does understand the importance of receiving an education, school officials decided to gift him his very own student ID card. Now, it seems that Leland High School has an unofficial mascot named Bubba.

Bride and Groom Combine Two Visions into One Incredible Wedding Cake

Bride and Groom Combine Two Visions into One Incredible Wedding Cake | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
When it comes to the wedding cake, soon-to-be married couples often have to make sacrifices in order to finally choose how their dessert will look and taste. Newlyweds Kia Parsons and Billy Bunning clearly have the whole give-and-take thing figured out, as they each had different visions when it came to the confection: the bride wanted an all-white cake with cascading sugar flowers, while the groom wanted his love of comic book superheroes to be part of their celebration. To make each other happy, they met in the middle—literally.
The four-tiered cake included everything they both wanted. One half featured Parsons’ beautiful, traditional-style floral arrangement that flowed from the top to the bottom. And, behind delicate icing curtains, a colorful confection celebrating Bunning's passion for comic book heroes was cleverly revealed. The logos of Captain America, Spider Man, Iron Man, and Batman occupied each layer.

Rustic Stable House Is Disassembled and Transformed into Modern Holiday Home

Rustic Stable House Is Disassembled and Transformed into Modern Holiday Home | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In the wheat fields of Tuscany sits what appears to be an unassuming, historic stone building. Beyond this rustic exterior, however, is a former stable house whose interior has been completely transformed into a strikingly modern holiday home. Roy David Studio was responsible for this metamorphosis, calling the updated property Motelparo villa.
In order to convert the space, the architects had to work against the constraints of strict preservation laws. To do this, each of the original stones used in the facade was numbered, disassembled, and later reconstructed after being deemed strong enough to build with. To update the interior, terra-cotta stone flooring was installed in a subtle fishbone arrangement, and ceiling tiles with wooden support beams were also added. Coupled with the white and light-colored furnishings, the space has an open and airy feel, akin to its countryside locale.
There were also other details from the original structure that remained unchanged…

Striking Fashion Photos Paired with Nature Scenes They're Inspired By | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
All around the world, there are fashion designers who are constantly seeking inspiration for their next project. Whether it's for their next line of runway garments, an all-encompassing outfit, or even a basic textile design, there's always a source of stimulation that sparks a burst of creativity, resulting in wearable artistry. For many of these fashion forward creatives, nature is the key. Though the seasons may change, and trends come and go, nature is a constant, cyclical muse.
Fashion enthusiast Liliya Hudyakova has been following fashion for years, tracking down each runway garment's visual inspiration. In her photo series, aptly referred to as Fashion & Nature, Hudyakova places images from the runway side-by-side with photographs of nature, drawing an irrefutable likeness between the two. Ultimately, what we deem fashionable is a reflection of the beautiful world that surrounds us.

Photographer's Unconventional Self-Portraits Highlight Intriguing Architecture in Urban Spaces

Photographer's Unconventional Self-Portraits Highlight Intriguing Architecture in Urban Spaces | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In her Urban Self-Portrait series, Anna di Prospero photographs herself against the backdrop of towering, irregular architectural forms in the middle of sprawling cities. Stretching out on the ground, twisting her body into emotive contortions, or caught in startling states of undress, the Italian photographer appears as the star of unconventional self-portraits that border on the surreal. Stark and eerily devoid of people, except for di Prospero herself, the images transform everyday urban spaces into slices of a sci-fi-esque metropolis fit for the wanderings of a solitary woman.
The Roman-born photographer, who has gained recognition for her unique self-portraits, told Fotografia Magazine, "I think self-portraits are a good way to examine yourself and your relationships with others. A self-portrait forces you to make questions about who you are and admit things to yourself."

One of the World's Only Globe-Making Studios Celebrates the Ancient Art of Handcrafted Globes

One of the World's Only Globe-Making Studios Celebrates the Ancient Art of Handcrafted Globes | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
A globe is the only "true" representation of the world that doesn't distort the shape or the size of the earth's features. Terrestrial (showing a map of the world) and celestial (showing the apparent positions of the stars in the sky) globes are known to have been made since the mid-2nd century B.C., but the earliest surviving terrestrial globe was made in 1492 by Martin Behaim, a German mapmaker, navigator, and merchant. Globe making developed rapidly during the Renaissance as a result of technological developments like the mechanical printing press, as well as the increasing availability of Latin translations of Ptolemy’s treatise Geographica. By the end of the 15th century, globe making had become a well-established craft in Europe, further motivating voyagers such as Christopher Columbus to go forth and explore new lands.
In the modern age, with the advent of GPS in addition to the abundance of mass-produced globes and maps, the art of globe making has fallen by the wayside. Only…

Interview: Photographer Builds Elaborate Sets to Capture Surreal Portraits In-Camera | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Even as a child, Lara Zankoul was interested in photography, finding inspiration in the photos she came across in fashion magazines. Despite her fascination, she opted to study economics for a more secure career. At 21 years old, Zankoul couldn't deny creative yearning and made a life-changing career change by purchasing a DSLR to teach herself the art of photography. Once she started taking photos, she was hooked, shifting her focus and passion to visual storytelling.
Zankoul's work embodies the qualities of a waking dream, with mysterious and surreal elements that complement the moody atmospheres she creates. Often taking months to prepare, Lara's dedication to her vision shines through in her desire to get as much as she can in camera—she ambitiously chooses to build elaborate scenes for her concepts rather than relying solely on post editing tools.
Lara was kind enough to take the time to give a behind the lens look into her photographic process.

Suspended Glass-Bottomed Pool to be a Swimmable Pathway Between Two Buildings

Suspended Glass-Bottomed Pool to be a Swimmable Pathway Between Two Buildings | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
It’s not everyday that multiple buildings are connected via a swimming pool, but that’s the plan for two upcoming apartment blocks in London’s new Nine Elms district. Marketed as a “world’s first,” this suspended basin will be 16-feet wide and 10-feet deep, with a glass bottom so that swimmers can gaze upon the sights 10 stories below.
Called Sky Pool, the structure will be about 90 feet long, and residents will be able to swim between the two buildings. If one doesn’t feel like paddling that far, however, an additional side bridge will form a walkable second path. A rooftop bar, spa, and orangery will also be on top of the luxury residences known as Embassy Gardens.
HAL architects are developing the 2,000-home complex, as well as the ambitious pool. Engineering firm Arup Associates designed the waterway, and they’re working with structural engineers Eckersley O' Callaghan and aquarium designers Reynolds to bring the idea to life. The expected completion is 2017.

Patrick and Rachel Givens knew that they wanted to uniquely celebrate their amazing grandmas on the day of their wedding.

I think DD may have even pumped her fist when I asked her and yelled, 'Alright!'" 
The two grandmas actually met for the first time when they were preparing for the big day and they instantly got along. "They linked arms during their practice walk down the aisle at the rehearsal on Friday and again as they lined up for their real walk on Saturday," said the bride.

Couple Hilariously Recreates Newborn Photo Shoot with Their Puppy | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
 A common question often posed towards couples is, “So, when are you having kids?” While it can be an irritating inquiry, one couple found a hilarious way to deflect the issue. Matt Kay and Abby Lee staged a very special photo shoot—the kind you see from newborn parents—only instead of a little human, their “new addition” was their sweet baby puppy, Humphry.
Photographer Elisha Minnette captured the amusing series, which shows off proud parents Kay and Lee. It also features all the trappings of typical newborn photos: a dreamy, romantic landscape; a vintage-style baby carriage; and parents lovingly cooing at their offspring. In these images, Humphry is an adorably great sport who doesn't even fuss when swaddled in a tiny blanket!
The idea for this photo shoot came during the long drive the couple took to bring Humphry home from his breeder. Minette told BuzzFeed that the series was a “light-hearted poke at parents who do similar photo shoots with their newborns.” Judging from how…

Standing, sitting, tumbling, or curled up on the floor, the towering frames of the bronze characters contain stairs, slides, and hollow spaces that can be explored fully, turning each work into an interactive jungle gym for children and adults alike to enjoy.
"I try to make work that speaks a common language that people understand, a visual language that doesn't intimidate them," says the artist. By casting each sculpture in the same cartoonish, jolly style, Otterness allows them to communicate universal ideas of fun and play that anyone can understand.

This imaginative chess set is completely customizable. The pieces are 3D printed, and XYZ Workshop has made the patterns available for download, allowing you to produce them in a variety of colors and materials. In addition, they’ve included a printable and portable chess board skin, which means any flat surface can be a place for game play.

What is #vanlife? For some, it's just a hashtag on Instagram, but for others, it's a philosophy, a way of life that says, "Home is where you park it." For members of the #vanlife community, there is no greater pleasure than driving down empty roads in their home-on-wheels, sleeping under the stars, and sitting around a campfire while exchanging food, laughter, and stories with fellow wanderers.

It may not be the happiest place on earth, but Banksy's new Dismaland Bemusement Park promises to be a thrilling pop-up destination for lovers of art, rides and games, and dark humor. Billed as a "family theme park unsuitable for children" and "a festival of art, amusements and entry-level anarchism," the street artist's latest project offers "an alternative to the sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out," according to the park's website. Dismaland features 10 new works by the famous provocateur, as well as the contributions of 57 other artists from around the world, including Damien Hirst, Zaria Forman, Brock Davis, Ben Long, and more. Interspersed between the cheeky, grim "post-modem" artwork (pieces that Banksy says have "high click potential" in this digital age) are quirky rides, ironic displays, impossibly challenging fair games, and gruff employees who embody the deliberately glum atmosphere of the park.

Shooting exclusively on film, photographer Hayden Williams composes dreamy multiple exposure images that turn ordinary scenes into poetic visual narratives. The 20-year-old creative, who just returned to the US from a study abroad program in Hong Kong, pairs unlikely elements like wildflowers and an urban cityscape, silhouetted figures and soft glimmers of bokeh, and vibrant blooms and architecture to depict fleeting moments from a surreal and colorful world.
Williams thoughtfully crafts his compositions by exposing the same roll of film more than once, superimposing different shots on top of each other, in-camera. The results can be a little unpredictable, but that's all part of the fun, according to the photographer. What makes it worth it is the moment when the light, color, and shadows of multiple exposures align perfectly, resulting in beautiful and startling imagery that pops.

"Although much attention is given to each taxi by its driver - to make it stand out from his competitors - very little thought is given to the fabric used on the seats. The designs that cover the taxi seats are often functional and forgettable and with the outstanding design talent Mumbai has to offer, this shouldn’t be the case."
Thanks to their successful Kickstarter, Taxi Fabric's creatives were able to make their transportation-related dream a reality.

Sleepy Fox Found Taking a Peaceful Nap on Second-Story Ledge | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Although it’s not unusual to see foxes roaming out and about, to see one sleeping on a second-story window sill is certainly not a common sight. This adorable creature somehow scaled a townhouse in the London neighborhood of Notting Hill, and the stone ledge appears to be the perfect place for its undisturbed slumber.
Notting Hill resident, author, and editor Rachel Johnson snapped a couple of photos of the peaceful nap. Describing the scene to the Evening Standard, she explained, “It must have got up via the scaffolding on the house next door. People were coming out of their houses with telephoto cameras - but luckily no-one decided to shoot it! It was rather a sitting duck there on the ledge.” Foxes often run rampant around the neighborhood—they're always seen in the gardens—which can aggravate the residents. “But when I saw this one it was hard to feel the same sense of rage,” she said.
The sleepy animal spent most of the afternoon on the window sill, eventually moving on. How it…
