Don’t these planetary chocolates look divine? They almost look too beautiful to eat..
celestial collection of planetary chocolates, chocolatier L’éclat of the Righa Royal Hotel
The chocolaty solar system includes Mercury (coconut mango), Venus (cream lemon), Earth (cacao), Mars (orange praline), Jupiter (vanilla), Saturn (rum raisin), Uranus (milk tea) and Neptune (capuccino) – sorry, pluto is no longer considered a planet.
I know I’ve posted photos of these before but I have just come across these photographs and thought they were too beautiful not to share!
Mika Aoki - Her Songs are Floating (2008), glass sculpture, abandoned car
“In the midst of pitch-dark space, an old car, shining by blue light, is to be seen dimly as if it is floating in the air. On the windshield, rearview mirrors, on the hood, in scratches on the body which are rust-eaten and turned up, and everywhere, forms like spores or fungi are growing and propagating. Creatures like transparent worms are creeping in a row. From the surface of the roof to the air above it, plants are growing, and their roots are spreading downward from the ceiling of the car. When you sit on the rear seat, you feel as if you and the car are sunk at the bottom of the sea.
Transparent creatures shone by the moon light glitter calmly.
Various feelings, memories, time that dwell within dying things grow quietly and start sprinkling invisible spores. The activity encircles the whole space, as if the girl who used to own this car is still singing there. Transparen lives that accept everything, repeatedly join and split inside of their bodies, and absorb space and grow.”

I love these double exposure photographs entitled ‘la double vie’ by Michael Assaad. He describes his work far better than I could so read on for his description!
“It’s a set of double exposures , that illustrates the connection between human beings and nature”
“I wanted to keep things as natural as can be , that’s why you’ll find spots that could’ve been cloned out , healed or burned to get a perfect shot but perfection wasn’t something i was going for , it was complete opposite that i sought”
