Valentines month may be nearly over but romance certainly ain’t dead in these beautiful and unique shots depicting idealized love around the globe. New York based photographer Braden Summers spent six weeks travelling the world in order to recreate the images of romantic perfection we are bombarded with constantly in mainstream media, only this time using exclusively gay couples.

Summers, who identifies as gay himself, travelled through the UK, France, India, …

The motorcycle – a symbol of freedom, adventure and youth ever since the 50s spawned those early rebels without a cause and Ted Simon hit the road to pen Jupiter’s Travels. But so often in pop culture do women seem relegated to perching prettily on the back of the bike despite the fact that all around the world I’ve witnessed ladies fearlessly manning their own machines; perhaps not in heels …

The day of Halloween is finally upon us; the time for creepy stories around a fire, the day for scary costumes, the night for trick or treating neighbours. I love this time of year as it’s an excuse to dress up, ask strangers for sweets and generally have a fear-full time! And what better way to celebrate this holiday than a good ole horror story?
I’m sure anyone who’s ever been …

With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities. Don’t let that happen and don’t resign yourself to mere daydreams of the faraway exotic …

You never forget your first time. Your first time on the London Underground.
Rude at rush hour, rowdy at night, reliably grumpy in the morning, using “The Tube” to navigate your way across London as either a resident or a visitor is a rite of passage.
It’s one of the things I love to miss now that I no longer live in London. Of course, when I actually lived in London, I …

Pho is a traditional Vietnamese dish that can be found all over Vietnam. Super cheap, authentic, fresh, healthy, everything you could ever want while backpacking! Coming from Melbourne and its fantastically diverse cuisine, I had tried the traditional noodle soup dish in the Vietnamese suburb of Richmond. I thought it was pretty good… but going to Vietnam and tasting it fresh at roadside cafes, it blew my mind: “Hi my …

What I love about photography is the fact that it can take you to places you’ve never been to and open up worlds you might have never discovered yourself. A single picture can say more than a thousand words and carry more emotions than the longest love letter. Looking for this kind of inspiration, I like to sit down for a few minutes and browse the web for some visual …

Traveling the world at few or no expenses is one of the many things that I love about New York City. There’s of course nothing like an actual trip abroad that comes with the planning, the packing, and the journey itself. And then there also is the ever growing bucket-list: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo, experience Holi, and party at the Chinese New Year. In New York, you can have it …

When I first visited Weeki Wachee Springs, I was seven years old and immediately fascinated with the place. I don’t quite remember the beautiful scenery, the palm trees, and the crystal clear water in detail but what really amazed me were the Weeki Wachee mermaids who dove in the spring and performed effortlessly on the underwater stage. They seemed perfectly at ease, holding their breath for several minutes, reaching for …
