From the busy and colorful streets of India to the beautiful landscapes and food of Argentina, check out these two awesome blogs and witness different cultures through some amazing photographs.

Travel photography is one of the most important and popular kinds of photography – it paints pictures of different places and people. Back when there were no smart phones and digital cameras, the camera was a holiday essential, how else would you share with your family and friends the amazing experience you had! Travel photography lives on, and with the advent of technology – it allows for these pictures and experiences to go beyond your own family and friends. Here are two photo blogs we love!

Her photographs paint a vibrant yet realistic picture of both regions, and be sure to check out her latest photo series “#Indiaatwork -  a collection of photographs capturing some of the “aam admi (common men and women)” of India doing what it takes to earn their daily bread.”

We love monochrome!

Here we go again, time for MM37.  First of all I want to say thank you to those of you who sent your images early, it really helped, meant I could do a lot before losing the internet on my laptop.  I’m trying to be good about the whole thing, losing the internet will mean better coverage in the future as they upgrade the towers.

Okay, before you say anything, I know it is another pier, but this one is from the other end of the state and a long way from the ocean.  I took this after the workshop I taught on Saturday.  I showed you a similar photo in my Weekend Wandering post.  This is a sunset photo, and I know you wouldn’t normally do sunset photos in monochrome, but I thought I would give it a go.

Public Space Innovation – Check out these amazing projects!

A public space is defined as a social space generally open and accessible to people.

While this may seem obvious, have you ever thought about what goes into the design of public space? Why do public spaces in New Delhi look different from those in Washington DC or Amsterdam? Do public space designs reflect the culture within which they are created? These are all questions we don’t seem to think about when we sit in our local parks or hang out on some benches near a fountain.

Some groups are committed to work towards the intersection of people, art, public space and technology. We’ve done some research and have selected a few awesome initatives!

Check these out:

1. Illuminated Bike Path, – Nuenen, Netherlands

Studio Roosegaarde, an innovative social design lab that has risen to prominence for their explorations at the intersection of people, art, public space, and technology; most notably their research with Smart Highways that could potentially charge moving cars or intelligently alert drivers to hazards. Check out their stunning illuminated bike path in Nuenen, Netherlands:

2. Alley Network Project – Seattle, United States 

ALLEY NETWORK PROJECT draws on the energy and ideas of neighbors, businesses, colleagues and community groups to transform Pioneer Square’s  alleys into one of its unrivaled assets. Alleys offer the opportunity for Pioneer Square to boost healthy activity on its streets, feed its vibrant arts culture, and draw people to local businesses.

3. SOAK – San Francisco, United States 

San Francisco startup Soak is transforming urban spaces pending development into pop-up spas using shipping containers and ecologically sound design. The company partnered with Rebar Group to design a mostly off-the-grid urban bathhouse using solar power, rainwater, and photovltaic cells, and a grey water system.

Ok Go! – Creative, quirky and just… Awesome!

OK Go is an American alternative rock band originally from Chicago, Illinois, now based in Los Angeles,California. More than the music (which is also great by the way), the band is best known for their AMAZING music videos.

Watch some of our favourites – creative, quirky (not to mention low-budget)  and believe it or not, apparently filmed using long or single-shot takes!!!
