Architecture: Edgeland house

buildings, photography

Edgenald residence was conceived by the Bercy Chen Studio and it is actually a pretty smart space. It is conceived to be at the best thermical capacity possible. What I like the most is the backyard, that allows you to observe the migration of birds, or take a relaxing bath surrounded b nature. I think it’s a great mixing between nature and architecture, isn’t it?

2008-2013, a picture a year

photography

 

I ruglarly read   Sandra Juto’s blog and I am amazed to see how many pictures she has taken from the same day in different years. One day I thought “maybe I also have some pictures from the same day in different years! So taking this as an inspiration,  I realized how many different things I did during the last years on the 13th of April. Isn’t it fun?

The art of coffee portrait

cuisine, design, photography

New York barista Mike Breach is sort of an artist of coffee. It is widely common to have a cup of warm coffee and have the barista drawn a heart or a plant, but this? Breach is able to draw portrait of people, animals, instruments and all sort of fun objects. Awesome right! In addition he does not seem to be looking at this as a sort of art, but for him is a “kind of a joke”, as he is able to have a short connection with the person who’s enjoying the coffee. Check out the video:

Dans le Pays Basque, le soleil est une denrée rare: on l’attend, le curé prie à la messe du dimanche pour qu’il arrive, on en parle sans cesse, on se rue aux Cent Marches ou à la Plancha des qu’il apparaît, et le lendemain il pleut à nouveau mais on s’en fout puisqu’on se reveille à cinq heures de l’après-midi. (…) Le ciel est un océan suspendu. De temps à autre, il fond sur nous, lavant les collines et le maisons à l’eau de la mer.
