These are some Soviet bus stops, photographed by Christopher Herwig and they're much more beautiful than ours! It seems that they were an outlet for creativity, but with the break-up of the Soviet Union many have deteriorated. Have a look at some other designs, here.
These pics are of a hand-built, eco friendly house in Wales, made from tree trunks, mud, straw bales and lime plaster, from a book called 'Handmade Houses: A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art'. It is long out of print, but some used/new copies are available to buy on Amazon.
One of my favourite photographers...Bellocq is known for his photographs of prostitutes in Storyville, the legalized red-light district in New Orleans, where he worked in the early 20th Century. See more of his work here.
I watched Black Cat, White Cat by Emir Kusturica the other day and it is just so good.. It's a romantic comedy based in eastern Serbia on the Danube River. Visually beautiful, cool characters and styling and amazing music..it's a must-see!
