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.
Sculptor Roger Hiorns pumped 75,000 litres of copper sulphate solution into a derelict council flat in Elephant & Castle London, which crystallized covering floor, walls and ceiling.
This urban sculpture saw him shortlisted for this years Turner Prize, and the flat is open to visitors until 18th October. For more info visit Artangel, the organisation who commissioned this work.

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!
