German photographer Bernhard Lang went on a pleasant holiday to the seaside resort town of Adria, Italy – a place that is absolutely covered with umbrellas. Located between the coastlines of Ravenna and Rimini on the Adriatic coast, each hotel has its own umbrella design, creating a sea of color that extends for miles. This inspired a photographic project for Lang, who decided that on his next trip he would arrange a plane and shoot the scene from the air. That happened last month, and the photos are fantastic. It almost seems like a beachside Candy Land of sorts. [Read more...]

Jamie Clauss Dog Baby Pictures 10

Baby photography is one of those things that has quickly turned into a gigantic cliché. Do a little snuggle, snap some picture of tiny feet, wrap them in a blanket – don’t forget the soft lighting. That’s why this series by photographer Jamie Clauss is so awesome. She and her next door neighbors Jan and Chase Renegar were having a boring day, so to liven things up they created a newborn photo shoot using their Jack Russell terrier. Her name? Snuggles.

Visiting swimming pools can give her a bit of refuge. ‘They have a quiet, positive atmosphere. They give me a rest from the reportages‘ she tells the Guardian. [Read more...]
