Exotic Sea Life Photography by Mark Laita

My photographer in light today is the talented photographer, Mark Laita. 

His latest photo series takes us underwater into the world of exotically mysterious and beautifully coloured sea life. Titled his 'Sea' collection, his eye-catching sea creature photography is able to wonderfully bring underwater sea creatures to life with the use of bold neon colours. 

Set against a blank, black backdrop, these fish and various forms of aquatic organisms pop with color, radiating a liveliness through the crystal clear water that spotlights their unique personalities. 

Mark captures everything from star fish to jelly fish, and showcases their exotic and diverse colors. What better way to showcase what lies within the deep blue sea then by beautifully capturing the bold and striking colors of marine life!

If you enjoy these photos, you probably want to check his photo book about the marine life on Amazon.

These are some truly amazing photos about marine life. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

Zhao Wei graces Harper’s Bazaar China

There are two main signs of Spring: the oldest one is the appearance of robins...and the other is traces of new life, first blooms peeking through the snow and on lifeless trees...

Depending on where you live you may not have seen any trace of new blooms so let my today editorial featuring the chinese actress and singer Zhao Wei for Harper’s Bazaar China serve as your first signs of Spring! :-)

The actress is the flowery beauty on the cover page of fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar China for the January issue 2011. 

She is photographed by Feng Hai and blooms in bright and colorful feminine pieces with floral prints on the cover and inside the magazine. It is a very romantic shoot.

Images from here:

She looks D-I-V-I-N-E on this pretty pink cover and this beautifully styled editorial, don't you think? LOVE!

Gorgeous Seashell House in Mexico

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Let's start this promising week  with this stunning seashell house in Mexico, shall we? 

Who cares what the neighbors think? Let's build a unique shell shaped house! That's just what a Mexico City couple with their two children did, with the help of the astonishing imagination of Mexican architect Javier Senosiain of Arquitectura Organica. It's amazing. It has to be seen to be believed!

The house design is very innovative, unusual and audacious. Javier decided to bring the life aquatic into architecture. This house turns the form of the Nautilus shell and is wonderful to look at and to be in. 

The open concept inside the house is dominated by smooth surfaces, spiral stairs and natural plantings that makes the inhabitants feel like they're living inside a snail who swallowed the entire contents of somebody's back yard. 

While the house is surrounded on three sides by the bustling Mexico City, its West side (where most of its portal-style windows are located) has a breathtaking view of the mountains. Woww! Maybe someday all houses will be made this way!

Do you want to walk on the stone paths along the amazing grass carpet? Entering the bathroom you will fill yourself under the water with the sandy walls, gorgeous blue tiles and the window overhead. This house is worth speaking about for a long time.... It is not only beautiful but also earthquake-proof and maintenance-free.

Before I saw this I didn't even know I wanted to live in a giant shell, but now I totally do!

Anybody want to get together on weekends and start construction of something similar? And obviously by 'start construction' I mean go kill the world's largest nautilus and live in its shell. :-)

Have a breezy Monday,

The Wonders of China by Feng Jiang

My Friday post is about the chinese amateur photographer Dr. Feng Jiang. 

Forget everything you think you know about China and take a couple minutes to ponder these images...Few people in the Western world know about the hidden beauty of China. Well...of course it helps to have a talented photographer who can capture this land of enchantment as no other has. 

Even though this series has been around for a while, these are the absolute best pictures of the natural wilderness of different parts of rural China I've seen so far! 

Images from here

These are some truly enchanting photos. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did! 

They are absolutely breathtaking and the composition, lighting and color are masterful! What do you think?

Have a breezy Friday,
