There exist many mysterious astronomical objects in space including celestial bodies or the planets that are continuously orbiting the sun. Some of these planets are found in inner solar system, some in outer solar system and some are known as dwarf planets.
All the known planets are almost circular and contain most of the mass. You can come to know plants facts.
Let’s have a look at the 10 known planets of universe.
A planet near to the dwarf planet Pluto, is newly discovered by using the Oschin Telescope at Palomar Observatory near San Diego, California. Planetary scientist Dr. Mike Brown announced this discovery of the tenth planet calling it a typical member of the Kuiper belt. This planet is the farthest but known object in the solar system.
Instead of starting with animals, today we’ll start with two nice nature / landscape photos. Jakub Polomski brings us Mala Fatra, mountains situated in Slovakia. As you can see, it’s nothing extreme, but still a very nice view … I love the mountain layers in the background btw. The next photo is called Past by Þorsteinn H Ingibergsson. I could imagine the photo with some nicer house though … but I guess we can’t have everything :). For fans of realistic illustrations, we’re presenting right three of them … but I’ll pick two I like the most. Frida Gustavsson by Branko Bistrovic is the one; the other one is Apple by Michael Oswald. Different styles, but both quite magical. Don’t you dare to skip Barracuda by Sarah A. King in the typography section. And there is something for freebie fans too. This time it’s something for web designers out there. If you are searching for a nice image slider, check the one by pixelsnippets at the bottom. Enjoy the collection!

What makes an art collector? For some, the term itself creates an image of a wealthy man or woman, quaffing expensive wine, staring at his or her treasures. The reality is so far from this, as art collectors aren’t bound by any of these preconceptions – and in some cases, income.
Not all art collecting is about attaining the most rare or most sought after pieces. While some collectors purchase art to invest, some buy art simply for joy. It is personal taste that will, at least initially, govern your choice of pieces. Of course, if you’re buying art simply to make money irrelevant of the image or sculpture, then you’re probably not making the most of your interest.
But how do you find out about different contemporary artists?
Airplanes by Alice X. Zhang
This is the part that seems tricky, at least to start with. The best place to start is a local gallery. If you’re new to the world of contemporary art, gallery assistants and managers will be happy to discuss current and popular artists. Don’t worry about buying initially. You might see something straight away that calls out to you, or perhaps not. There’s nothing wrong with having a wander without buying first.
One of the things that’s worth bearing in mind is that you can approach art in the same way as you would books, music or films. You know the music you like, you may have a favourite author or film genre. It’s okay to not like something because it’s not to your taste.
There are different ways to buy art, and the costs can vary from format to artists. Let’s take a look at these formats in more detail.
Open edition prints
Ocean Meets Sky by Terry Fan
Probably one of the most cost effective way of enjoying an artist’s work on your wall is buying an open edition print. These prints are produced until the printing plate wears, and have no fixed edition run. They are usually available in various sizes, suitable for your surroundings and budget. These prints are usually only available for long established artists, whereas many contemporary artists only have limited edition runs of their work.
Everyone has dreams, but sometimes we need to let them go. Or better yet, give them to someone else.

Hey guys! I hope you had a great weekend. We’ll be starting today with several cool animals photos. Seems like we’ve got a bear in romantic mood … check ANTARCTIC by Michael Poliza :). The photo right below by Mark Bridger presents couple of currious does in the mist. And how about some cool dogs chilling? What a life … it’s the photo right below. My fav among today’s illustrations would be the realistic one called Fugue by Bente Schlick. Kind of like the Tangled III by Josh Keyes too though. Hmm, I just fell in love with Coffee Inn Coffee Houses: White & Black by Not Perfect | Y&R. Amazing ad … cool and the realization is just perfect. If you guys need free textures, there is a nice set available for download called Texturen Set by templay.de. Enjoy!
