Surreal art by designer Jati Putra

Jati Putra is a graphic designer who uses simple techniques to create mindblowing art. He manipulates photos in ways that bend reality and present it as if everything is backwards or upside-down. It’s the real world we know and live in but suddenly the sidewalk ends and continues downwards at a 90-degree angle. It feels natural and scary at the same time but the confusion passes when you scroll past several photos and find yourself with your jaw open. Maybe the best way to describe Jati’s art through a movie analogy is “Inception meets Doctor Strange” – buildings and streets bending up and down while the people go on through it as if everything’s normal. The designer’s grasp of the modern surreal art is dreamy and creative while he obviously likes practicing it on peaceful landscapes and urban photos. You can see more of his photos below. Read more

Red foxes – crimson spirits in the snow

The red fox is one of the widespread animals in the wild. Famous for their cunning nature and adaptiveness, they hunt alone and can often be seen sneaking in the tall grass by the country roads. Most of them have fur in the shades of red and brown, with a long bushy tail tipped with white. The species have spread even through the north and arctic regions where the photographer Roeselien Raimond has captured their gracious steps through the snow.

15 breathtaking views from around the world

We live in our homes, full of sunshine pouring through the windows; and maybe most of you have a balcony where you can go out with a Manhattan and your Kindle to try and enjoy that last hours of the weekend when the sun is almost below the horizon and its crimson light reflects on the clouds far above.

And suddenly everything is ruined because you live in the central parts of the city and the buildings are so close together that the majestic view of the sun’s dive is replaced by the opposite balcony and your neighbor who’s had the sudden urge to light the barbecue and is now gently flipping burgers with a spatula. So you actually get burnt meat smell instead of crimson light and the sight of the neighbor, surreptitiously scratching himself with the aforementioned spatula over his white-ish tanktop plus the occasional burp from all the beer he’s drank. Not pretty.

Below you can see fifteen, somehow better, views and landscapes, taken from various homes around the world.
