The Capitol at Washington D.C.

6

D.C.'s as blue as ice. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it's on a warm season.

Five days after President Obama was sworn into office, my family drove to the nation’s capital for a mini-vacation. It turned out to be one of the coldest vacation ever. Sure, it was sunny and the skies were clear but the gusts of wind made the whole thing unbearable. We only managed to stay outdoors for less than an hour and made a beeline for the hotel.

But it also turned out to be one of my most favorite sets. The Kodak Professional Elite Chrome (200 iso) just blew my eyes the moment I got my prints from the lab. It was just so perfectly blue! I would definitely recommend going to Washington D.C. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it’s on a warm season.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Olympiastadion Berlin

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

    Fascinating Photographs of the Denishawn Dancers

    Much of modern dance as it is today owes a lot to Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, husband and wife who founded the famous school and dance company, the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts in 1915 Los Angeles, California. At first solo artists, St. Denis and Shawn began collaborating a year prior on dances often described as exotic and sensual, at times even erotic.

Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Burkina Faso: The Land of Upright People

    When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
