Creative Stroll: January 18, 2014

We live in a world of detail we never see or notice. Sometimes we are just in a rush, other times we lack the microscopes to see the tiny details.

Markus Reugels at Liquid Art has the microscope and the camera, but the photos he takes are not manipulated. He uses water, food coloring and oils to create these amazing photographs of water drops.

Lukas Holas is a photographer and graphic designer from the Czech Republic. He does animal portraits in black and white, the details coming through the spare, no-background portrait approach.

The lighting and staging makes these portraits extraordinary. You can tell Lukas’ love and respect for animals.

Visarute Angkatatavanich is also a commercial and animal photographer, but he specializes in Siamese Fighting Fish. Yes, those fighting fish. Currently living in Bangkok, Thailand, Visarute captures the amazing flowing fins of these fish in still photography.

Bettas (from the Latin name) live two to four years and are about three inches long.

Two male Bettas in the same aquarium isn’t a good idea. They will fight till one of them wins and the other is dead. Better to let each one be the king of his domain.

Have a creative Saturday!

  1. How amazing! The photography is stunning… thanks for sharing these with us today! I love the “Creative Strolls” moniker and will be on the lookout for more! Hmmm, now you have me thinking about adding some monikers of my own to my new blog 😀

    • I used to do them on Thursdays when they were called Theme Thursdays. But then I can to come up with a theme. Creative Stroll allows me to just post things I find and love–although often, like this time, it’s about one theme–photography, or street art. I do steer away from art journaling and collage (which is what I do, so it doesn’t start to become “work”) but making up names for threads on your blog is fun (and people can find more of them when they click on “categories”)
