Photography: Animal camouflage

normal_Art_Wolfe_Camouflage_10

That animals camouflate is no secret for anyone. Hiding can basically save their lifes, and I believe this is quite a big deal. It has happened to many of us that being surrounded by nature we can’t see the animals, even though we know they are there, hiding from us who are some kind of danger for them. Maybe this is why none of us have captured them wildlife photographer Art Wolfe has done.

His series of camouflated animals have been enthusiastically approved not only by its creativity but also for its uniquecity. This project has been a result of years of work, patiente and, sometimes, luck.

Friday means fun: really cute animals

friday means fun

I’m impressed I’ve never done this post before. Me, the person that watches hedgehog videos on Youtube every moment that she has free time. Me, the person that is always taken pictures of animals while on a holiday. Inadmissible! Hope you enjoy all of them and you’ll all have a great weekend.

Last but not least 2011 series, I would like to introduce you some of the sweetest creatures I’ve ever met. I’m the lucky owner of some of the animals so of course they are some of my favourites. However, the best animal I’ve seen so far this year is the red panda, don’t you think he’s adorable?

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them !

12 world map animals

design, english

Twelve Animals, Rooster -- ENG. Sometimes we wish we could rearrange the world map so that some countries could be closer that they actually are. With this, long distance relationships wouldn’t exist, and people might be happier.

Of course this is only possible in our imagination, and only for people who are a bit creative. Kentaro Nagai is one of them, and in his serie “12 animals” he has imagined which forms would the world map compose if they were animals from the chinese zodiac.

I’m affraid my sign is one of the ugliest ones, I mean, who could say that a rat is adorable ?

Happy weekend !

english, others/altres

ENG. This is the first weekend of fall, and I must admit it sucks. A lot. And I’m going to missing summer so bad… But well,  that’s life I guess. To make this weekend less awful, here you have a few links that you might found interesting. Enjoy!

Best quote ever.

– Ecology is trendy, nobodoy denies that. The new’s Greenpeace project is really cool, it is called White Roof Project and its goal is to paint all black roofs in the US in order to stop climate change. Want to know why?
