Swooning over this unbelievable jelly fish photography from Alexander Semenov! Can you believe the color and texture in these shots? Semenov is a Russian zoologist whose focus on invertebrates led him to photography as he tried to capture images of the creatures he was seeing both in the lab, and out on his dives. He started out with a simple point and shoot camera before graduating to more professional gear (including the camera we just got - the Canon 5dm2). 

I would love to have one of these as a print in our house - but I can't imagine being that close to them underwater. I am totally creeped out by the jellies we encounter every summer at the beach. Aren't you?? Something about their transparency and erratic movements - I'm always afraid of brushing up against one without realizing it!

If you like this stuff - you should check out the rest of Semenov's work on his site.

OK Go + Sesame Street

Yeah - this is pretty fun. Awesome collaboration between OK Go and Sesame Street. I'm thinking of cute little hipster kids learning their colors this way. 

I heart food

And these adorable biodegradable utensils  - go watch the video on their site, how could you not love them? Designed by Fatima Fazal out of her Manhattan shoebox apartment - they bring the love back into eating.  Wouldn't you love a set for a wonderful Valentine's day picnic in the living room - or sharing Chinese takeout night with friends?
