iceland & sweden

My boyfriend has been raving to be about Blue Lagoon for a while now, but despite seeing some marvelous pictures of it, the beauty was never etched into my mind as these pictures by Peter Baker have. He isn't just any American on vacation in Iceland with a decent SLR; Baker is the founder of a design company named Elevated Works and each of his captivating photographs will no doubt have a hold on you. He also has a Flickr in addition to his site for you to feast your eyes on. Enjoy! (Source)

Whoever you are, Sannah Kvist, I think I'm in love with you. I am a complete sucker for using negative space to emphasize a single object. It sounds easy to achieve a beautiful composition by way of nothingness, but it's difficult to make the photograph—in addition to being aesthetically pleasing—interesting. These take my breath away. I actually have to breathe as I'm scrolling so I can take advantage of the two seconds before my eyes yearn to move onto the next photo. See for yourself. These are my favourites from the singles on her website. There are series and commissioned works too. Too much for me to handle. Source
