Sea

AMAZING Photographer and designer based in New Zealand has made my day! His name is Andrew and specializes in contemporary photography under the name Cuba Gallery. You can admire his work on flickr or you can also visit his online gallery. There you can find information on Adobe Lightroom presets, and tutorials, go here. Unfortunately the downloads for the tutorials are not for free – but they are also not expensive. I have to say, just by studying the original photo and the after shot, and comparing them both. It completely blew me away how beautiful his photos are and how awesome it would be to learn how to manipulate my images…..hmmm will see! The small landscape photo on the right is the original photo – looking a bit plain, still nice though!

Below is the after shot of New Zealand beach landscape…:Bali, IndonesiaSomewhere in CubaNotice the sky in the background? On the original photo, there is no sky – just a white wall!

Now for something a little down to earth, very peaceful and stunning photography by Gregory Colbert
“When I started Ashes and Snow in 1992, I set out to explore the relationship between man and animals from the inside out. In discovering the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards restoring the common ground that once existed when people lived in harmony with animals.” Gregory Colbert

A few weeks ago on November 2, Andy Irons, three-time world champion surfer passed away unexpectedly at the age of 32. Friends, fans and admires came together around the world, for an honorary paddle-out to pay tribute to his legacy. One of the locations was at my home-town surfing spot, Avalon. It’s a gorgeous little beach that draws great surfers…and where I use to hang out ALL the time after school, every chance I got, back in the old days. So it means a lot to me to see these photos and footage below…it’s very sad but at the same time, it must of have been a truly magical experience…: Photos from Tracks Magazine

And last  Sunday, November 14, Family, friends and fans came together at Andy Irons home-town, Kauai  in Hawaii, to paddle out and join hands to pay tribute (a Hawaiian tradition) and say their last goodbyes. Andy is survived by his very pregnant wife Lyndie, his brother Bruce and his parents…I think its amazing the impact it has brought…the unity, the love and the Aloha Spirit from surfers around the world in times of need….peace x

I would love to have this ceramic piece shaped in, like a taco shell. It makes me think more of something from the sea…I can imagine it may be even nicer when you place a tea-light inside…: Handmade by Leili Design

This amazing sea star hanging light could also hang in my bedroom but i probably would have it turned on all the time because i love it so much… Designed by Marius Watz

Hands down one of the most awe-inspiring short surf film I’ve seen! You don’t need to be a surfer to appreciate this film. It’s for everyone, anyone who loves the sea, loves mother nature. The cinematography is breath-taking, it’s like poetry in motion…

Film by Allan Wilson and photos by Allan Wilson from his blog
