Monday Links For The Week …

So we had a very relaxed yet also highly productive weekend … it involved a successful Ikea trip (more about that later) … mahoosive amounts of photo editing … I’m now all done with editing my favourite photos from our London trip … will be posting those over the next couple weeks in dedicated posts … don’t want to overwhelm people with a massive photo dump! …

Perry managed to get on with much of his stuff … we came up with a plan that should mean we can carpool together to Abu Dhabi … atleast getting to spend an extra 2hrs a day with Perry will make the commute more pleasant … We’ve started watching Mad Men … got through the first 7 episodes so far … and Saturday evening we met up with friends and headed down to the Yacht Club for their Saturday Night Roast Dinner!

View from the Food Court at Festival City Mall … looking out over the Creek and the rest of Dubai … you can just about see the Burj Khalifa in the background … from our trip to Ikea at the weekend …

OK moving on to the main point of this post … here are the list of interesting/inspiring/random things I have come across on the internet this last week …

  1. To start with … did anyone else hear the rumour that Samsung paid Apple their $1billion fine with lorry loads of 5cent coins? … and although it turns out to be false … I still find the idea quite hilarious …
  2. A rather unique idea and cute photos of animals ‘Doing Yoga’ … CATSDOGS
  3. I thought Shawn Clover’s blend of old and new photos of San Francisco from 1906 (after a major earthquake) and now … are incredibly well done and a very powerful series of images  … PART 1PART 2
  4. Now everyone knows that Barbie and Ken are a couple but has anyone ever thought what their WEDDING might look like? … Well here is one photographer who has …
  5. I am loving Mademoiselle Maurice’s series on ORIGAMI ART … be sure to check out some of her other work too …
  6. Most people will have tried taking a self portrait through a mirror before … most of the time it comes out looking quite cheesy … but HERE are some examples of how it can be done in ways that more creative …
  7. This ‘FLYING HOUSES’ series by Laurent Chehere reminds me of the film ‘UP’ …
  8. The Guardian’s article about SIBLING RIVALRY reminds me of my childhood growing up with my brother and all the things we used to get up to …
  9. A bit of fun with this one … CELEBRITIES PHOTOSHOPPED TO LOOK LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE … no explanation needed really … just take a look …
  10. Some sound advice from Dita Von Teese … ‘You can be the ripest peach in the world … and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches’ … Basically you cant please everyone … so may as well be sure your happy!

Ok well thats it for this week … As always if you have come across something intersting/inspiring/random … then please leave a link to it in the comments …

Till next time …
