Autumn is technically here and the weather is finally getting a little cooler near dawn but the morning and afternoon are still scorching. As much as I love the summer feel of this throwback photo from ‘09 I can’t wait till I get to bundle up in knits and beanies.

Belgium-base ad agency Soon created a series of (reclaimed) paper insect sculptures for a paper company called IGEPA Benelux.

There was a magical box of tarts when I came home from my business trip and this green tea tart was the last one before I had all of these delicious desserts were gone. I don’t have the tendency to drink anything caffeinated so having this extremely tea infused dessert after a late dinner had me wide-eyed and up at night. At least I’m no longer jet lagged.

Looking at things from a different angle introduces a different perspective, literally, case and point. I love aerial photography and have posted about it before. These photographs by Bernhard Lang are taken along seaside resorts at the coastline between Ravenna and Rimini in Italy. Aerial photography always throws me off quite a bit because they are absolutely surreal to look at. The distance between the lens and subject almost always presents itself like a staged miniature collection because it isn’t an outlook that most people are accustomed to. When you strip an object of all its details, it takes away the tangible actuality, making it less personable thus appearing choreographed and unreal. 

Dabii is now available at twenty5octobers. You can see how one of my dogs, AF, becomes a camera hog and wiggles under my arm, into the shot whenever I’m taking product shots.

The Rainy Pot received the Red Dot Honourable Mention in 2013. The cute and relatable creation is by Jeong Seungbin from Korea’s DailyLife Lab. Mimicking real life, the design allows water to pass through slowly as droplets of water rain down on the plant below.

What a crazy camera hog. AF really likes to wiggle his way under my arm whenever I’m taking product shots. If there are squirrels here I’d imagine this is his Dug “SUIRREL!" face.

I know it’s film Friday and that I didn’t post it last week either…But just a heads up I may or may not skip it again today! Will this interesting photo of slippers drying in the sun suffice? This photo is from a few weeks back. My grandma’s insistent need to adjust the drying slippers made the photo better than without it.
