“798 Art District or, simply ‘798’, is located in the Chaoyang District of Beijing, a short 20-minute drive from the airport. It houses a thriving artistic community — most famously, the 50-year-old now-defunct military factory buildings of particular architectural style. Majority of the galleries are free to enter-making it an excellent place to browse contemporary art and support local talent.”
“Fonte da Telha beach is part of the Portuguese coast, situated on the south side of the River Tejo. It’s one of those places that drive most beach lovers insane and make this country such a great place to live in.”
“My favorite Summer Hot Spot in Portugal is the southwest coast of Alentejo and Algarve. With gorgeous beaches and being part of a protected natural reserve, this is the paradise for laid-back vacationers, chilled surfers and trigger-happy photographers alike!”

The lives of artists are sometimes as phenomenally interesting as their work. Admirers even go as far as emulating their creative process, style and philosophies. Photographs of actors, writers and musicians in their element make this idolatry even more vivid.
