Bicycle Portraits

This is a project from Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler who are in a 2 year long journey around South Africa taking pictures of ordinary people and their bikes. I got a description from Blog Miss Moss giving more details on it:

Make sure you watch their video at the bottom of the post!

“Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler are publishing the best 165 portraits and stories of the over 500 portraits of cyclists they’ve photographed during their 2 year journey around South Africa. Divided over 3 books, each will contain a different 55 stories, and also two essays each by local South African and major international cycling figures. The books are designed by Gabrielle Guy and they have also collaborated with celebrated South African artist Gabrielle Raaff to create an individual hand-painted watercolor map, based on Google Maps, to indicate the location of each of the portraits. ”

Beautiful Surf Photography @ Teahupoo

Teahupoo is one of those heavenly surf spots on earth. It’s not only beautiful to look at, but also has great glassy waves with perfect height breaking mainly to the left. It hosts the annual WCT installment of  Billabong Pro Tahiti Surf Competition – Just great! (via Surfline) See way more pictures at the original post here
