This is how renovation is done! This old townhouse in Soglio, Switzerland was renovated by Christian Speck of Formzone and has a clean look without losing charme. Some of the rooms of this house are completely contemporary, while others have stone walls integrated and wooden rustic elements. Some of the doors are absolutely fascinating, reminding of the world as we know it from decades ago. The terrace is a place where the owners can enjoy the amazing views of the Alps, while having their breakfast at the beginning of the day.
Cool! The boys from Randy Blue (just admit that you know them) did this great tribute to Kylie by lipsynching their sexy ways through her great song Get Outta My Way.

So I finally received my free iPhone case today. I picked it out of a long list of cases and wanted it to be black and simple. But I don't like it. I like the design of the iPhone 4 so much that I hate covering it up with a case. So I think I'm not gonna use it and be carefull like I was in the last few months I had it. That means no dropping, no spoiling coffee or wine while calling and no ejaculating on it. I think I'll manage to do that in the next 2 years.
Can't wait to get the December Issue of Attitude Magazine in my hands. This fold-out cover looks so promising! Besides the cover, I know there will be a beautiful spread by Sam Scott Schiavo in it, which I've been patiently waiting for in the last few weeks.
Oh and if it isn't enough, François Sagat refers you to Attitude Style, another great blog. And who am I (or you) not to obey the orders of Mr. Sagat!
Another post inspired by a befriended blogger. Eran, my Israelian friend, aka Shutter Self, spent his vacation last month in several European cities. He did some great updates on his blog, but my only comment about his series about Berlin was that there were so many indoor pictures that could have be taken anywhere in Europe (and beyond). He promised me he will do another post with pictures he took outside.
Ironically I came across this series of photos today. Photographer Matthias Heiderich captured the outsides of Berlin, but even then, it doesn't look like Berlin like we all know it. So this series proves that you can do beautiful shoots in cities without them looking like those cities. It's such a different approach than my own. I always try to capture the stereotypical atmosphere of a particular city, which is not nessecary at all.
Last week I received this great picture above from Tonnya aka Wanderer of the Night. She shares my obsession with François Sagat, so she knows how to make me happy! But besides drooling over this beautiful man, several questions remained. Where is he photographed, why don't I know this place, what's that penis-shaped statue with naked people on it?
Tonny happens to be a librarian, so her search was quick and complete. This photo was taken in Vigeland Park, in Oslo, Norway. Have a look at their site. Looks like one of the best sculpture parks in the world! Thanks Tonnya!

I've seen the pictures of Six Flags after Katrina in 2005, but I never saw this beautiful film shot in this abandoned park. This film was made in October 2010 by Teddy Smith and has a matching score to make it look even creepier. Awesome!
