Name? Colin Blakely – Place you live? Ann Arbor, Michigan – “I think of Ann Arbor as embodying traditional notions of Middle America. Here, the passing of time is defined as much by the rituals we collectively participate in as by the months on a calendar.” Read photographer Colin Blakely’s full interview/travel guide here.
Seems we’ll be continuing with female beauty today as well. There are several amazing photos featuring hot women, but we’ll start with something different today if we may. What about beautiful horses? Andrey Vasilyev is quite talented … but you’ll figure that out yourself after checking his Horses photo. Seems more like a photo manipulation to me, but the end result is brilliant, so it doesn’t matter at all. My second pick has something common with beauty, but this photo is more conceptual or fashion related. I am speaking about the Follow the wind by Zlatimir Arakliev. Seems like the girl is representing hunting season with all the feathers and furs :). Anyway, let’s move on. I kind of like unusual style, and that’s exactly what I see in the 3d illustration called General Portfolio by Lee Hasler. I like it a lot. In the art / digital art section there is a nice ink illustration called Portraits in Ink and Tea by Carne Griffiths. I bet the author spent a great deal of time working on it. Can’t help it, but today I have to highlight something from the architecture / design section as well. Fans of interior design gonna agree that the Leafy Faucet by Andrea de Dominicis is worth highlighting. Amazing design. Love the sink too! That’s everything from me guys … now it’s up to you to get your mouse busy. Enjoy!
Name? Aaron Feaver – Place you live? Santa Monica – Can you sum up Santa Monica? Everyone does yoga and drives a Prius, it’s sunny almost all the time, and the beach is everywhere. Read Aaron’s full interview/travel guide here.

Seems today’s photography section is presenting human, well let’s be specific, female beauty only. There are some hot artworks such as the Color of Beats by Chinese Yanzhou Bao, Destiny by David Terrazas or Marianna by Joanna Kustra. Of course there are several more, not less creative than the ones presented above. From today’s illustrations I like the retro Volkswagen illustration / poster by Marcelo Schultz called Volkswagen “Bubble”. The ones into traditional art, make sure to check the brilliant sketches by Tomasz Usyk. So far my overall favorite today! Hmm, just found another hot piece in the typography section by Marcelo Schultz called Nike – Just Do It! That’s called creativity. And now something for all the web site developers.

I took this photograph at the Coburg Trash and Treasure flea market. Its held at a drive in, to the city’s north. I’ve always thought it makes for a surreal setting to sift through junk , its a quintessentially Melbourne thing to do.
Name: Louis Porter
Place you live: Melbourne, Australia
Can you sum your spot? I live with my girlfriend, who is also a photographer, in the inner city suburb of Fitzroy. For many years Fitzroy was an urban slum, riddled with gangs and crime and although its become gentrified over time, its retained a great deal of rugged charm. Where we live, drop in centres, multi-million dollar houses, government flats and the country’s first parliament are jumbled together into relatively small area.
Preoccupation: I’m a compulsive book collector, I always carry a notebook with lists of things to photograph and books to look for.
What is a perfect day in Melbourne? I’m happiest when I’m working, although a cheese pie for lunch is always a bonus.
A perfect meal in Melbourne? A slap up feed at my local pub, The Napier.
What is the best thing about your spot? We are 15 minutes walk north of the city via a beautiful park and 15 walk minutes west of our studio.
What is the worst? The terrible disparity between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians is a festering wound that largely gets ignored.
A little known fact about where you live? The world’s first feature film was made in Melbourne in 1906, The Story of The Kelly Gang.
Getting warmer around here … that’s what we like. Each season has something to offer, but to speak for myself I like the spring the most. Why? Simply because we can feel everything waking up. It’s about the colors and scents too. While speaking about it .. had to open my window to get some fresh air in. Love hearing the birds singing. Ok, let’s calm down and get back to our daily set of creative inspirations. There are some cool pieces I would like to highlight today. From the very first section my pick is the Lighthouse by Spencer Brown and probably the playing cats photo. That one is pretty funny actually. From today’s illustrations my favorite one is the last called Mr. Spray goes empty by Yvo Hählen. For all the guys our there, well at least the 96%, there are two hot artworks available in the art / digital art section. Make sure to check the In a car artwork by Matariil and Rabeta of the day by LAMBUJA! How hot is that?! If you guys like typography make sure not to miss the SALVAJEANIMAL HEADLESS III by SALVAJEANIMAL and Popular Mechanics 110th Edition by Jordan Metcalf. There is a nice corporate portfolio web site template at the bottom in the freebie section. Make sure to download it right away, as it’s free this month only! Keep coming back .) Enjoy!
North Korea is a nation known for its reclusiveness. Media coverage is strictly censored and press freedom highly restricted. Occasionally, the government permits foreign journalists to take guided tours, which allows a limited view of what’s inside the country.
Reuters photographer Bobby Yip captured pictures of workers at the Kim Jong-suk Pyongyang Silk Mill in Pyongyang April 9. The factory is named after the wife of North Korea founder Kim Il-sung and appears to employ women exclusively on the factory floor. Little else is known about the mill, such as working conditions or level of output, but these photos present a rare glimpse into how the North Korean government would like outsiders to see its industry.
