Paint? Over it. Chalk? No thanks. Photoshop? Yeah, right. In coldest Russia you need so much fire to keep warm, you might have some left over. Photographer Pol Tergejst creates art with matches, flames and darkness - that never hurt anyone, right? These imaginative pictures are the outcome of what one can do if they have an eye for simple objects and no fear of death. I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at with some of these, just keep it away from the vodka.

Nathan Kaso has made a short video called "Toy Boats" - a collection of clips featuring a tiny Sydney created with the photographic technique of tilt-shifting. It makes me wish I could roll up all the world's cities into little snow globes and keep them on my bookshelf. Is that weird?

His affection for these simple yet handsome beasts eventually led him to a more artistic approach. The horse portraits, beautifully lit and so rich in detail, have become famous in the niche realm of animal photography.

It makes perfect sense that Southern California's truest beauty can only be caught on film. The golden land of make-believe lends itself perfectly to the long-exposures on a telephoto lens, giving the illusion of paintbrush strokes which are in fact just motions captured on camera. Photographer David Orias aptly names this series Waves.
