Mesmerizing Trees by Kilian Schönberger

by Claire-Marine

«The Secret Beauty of Trees» est la nouvelle série enchanteresse du photographe allemand Kilian Schönberger, véritable amoureux des paysages naturels. Au sein de ses photos règne une ambiance mystique et fantastique qu’on accueille avec plaisir en même temps que l’automne.

Il nous explique: «Visiter les forêts est pour moi le moyen le plus facile de quitter le monde de tous les jours axé sur la technologie. Quelques centaines de mètres suffisent à s’immerger dans un monde totalement différent. Les bruits de notre soi-disant monde civilisé sont de plus en plus atténués à chaque pas. Mais mon objectif n’était pas simplement de prendre des photos de scènes magnifiques, j’ai également essayé de comprendre l’histoire des forêts européennes. Il y a des traces d’activités humaines dans presque toutes les forêts, parfois depuis l’Antiquité. Les vestiges de cet ancien usage de la forêt me fascinent en particulier, car les arbres sont les derniers témoins d’un mode de vie et de culture qui a disparu il ya plusieurs décennies.»

Pour cette série, il indique avoir visité près d’une centaine de forêts. Suivez son impressionnant travail sur son compte Instagram.

Corippo: The Village That Wants to Become a Hotel

by Kaushik

The tiny mountain village of Corippo, perched on the Swiss Alps, is much more than a village. It is an autonomous municipality with its own coat of arms and a mayor who leads the town council consisting of only three local citizens. With only twelve residents, Corippo is the smallest municipality in Switzerland. And its population is progressively shrinking—just two years ago it had fourteen.

When Corippo became a fully independent municipality in the mid-19th century, it had a population of nearly three hundred. But like many Alpine communities, Corippo has experienced depopulation for the past several decades with the younger generation moving out to the towns and cities for work and education and an overall better life. Only the very old and the very weak remained behind. Out of the twelve residents, only the mayor is employed; the rest are pensioners. The average age is 75. Soon, the residents fear, Corippo will have no one left.

Kayaker blessed by a seal, slapped in the face with an octopus

by Rachel Becker

A man kayaking off the coast of New Zealand’s South Island was clobbered in the face with an airborne octopus unleashed by a seal, Yahoo7 News reports. But here’s the best part: the entire inter-species aquatic slap fight was caught on camera, so you can watch it as many times as you need to get through the day.

The video shows the seal rearing up out of the water with the octopus clutched in its mouth, and flinging it at kayaker Kyle Mulinder. Mulinder’s Instagram bio says he’s a GoPro content creator, and he told Yahoo7 News: “My face happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.” Fellow kayaker Taiyo Masuda, who also describes himself as part of the GoPro family, says in the video’s description that he shot the scuffle on the...

This Organic Desert House in Joshua Tree, CA is at One With Its Environment

Long considered one of the pioneers of organic architecture in the United States, Kendrick Bangs Kellogg’s ‘Desert House’ is often cited as one of the preeminent examples.

Situated on 10 rocky acres near Joshua Tree National Park—the 4,643 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home was completed in 1993 while interior designer and long time collaborator John Vurgin, continued on the project well into the 2000s.

Owners Bev and Jay Doolittle gave Kellogg carte blanche to do what he wanted with the property and Desert House was the result. After completion, the couple lived there for over a decade until they decided to downsize, listing the property with TTK Represents back in 2014 for $3 million. The property has since sold (amount unknown) but these beautiful pictures by Lance Gerber live on.
