Landscape photography by John Parminter

Under - Art, Geography, Inspiration, Nature, Photography

This spectacular landscape photography by John Parminter offers ever-changing views of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes of Scottish Highlands and English Lake District.

The breathtaking beauty and harsh ruggedness of Scotland and Wales, home to some of the UK’s most amazing sceneries, is a constant source of inspiration both to explore and photograph.

I was born and brought up in a rural community in the English county of Cumbria, home to the Lake District or Lakeland as it’s sometimes known.

The fells and mountains of Cumbria have always been a big influence on me and I’m regularly walking and running over them either for pleasure or in competition.

After spending many years enjoying the scenery that’s on offer, I decided to try and capture, in images, the natural beauty that I’m fortunate to live and spend my recreational time in.

I’ve had tremendous enjoyment capturing these images and hope to pass on some of their pleasure to you, they are for your enjoyment to view as much as mine.

Chinese brush paintings and calligraphy

8 Wild Horses by Chen Ming

8 Wild Horses by Chen Ming

My first encounter with Chinese paintings was in 1984, at the age of 10, when my father brought some painted scrolls and calligraphy artworks from his trip to China. Since then this ‘genre’ of painting fascinated me as much as the miniature paintings from South Asia.

Chinese paintings offer one-of-a-kind experience with their intricate simplicity, fluidity of strokes and spontaneous expressions.

Starting around 4000 B.C. traditional Chinese painting has developed continuously over a period of more than six thousand years. Its growth has inevitably reflected the changes of time and social conditions. In its early stage of development, Chinese painting was closely related to the other crafts, from pottery to the decorations used on the bronzes, carved jade and lacqerware… more

The Mast Brothers

Under - Art, Inspiration, Miscellaneous

The life of a mariner is one given over to wanderlust—the quest for adventure, crossing unseen horizons to secure precious goods—only to bring them back to their home port. This same love of adventure and curiosity defines the brotherhood of Rick and Michael Mast. They share a fiercely independent spirit, leaping into the unknown and trusting that they’ll find the answer through endurance and dedication to their craft.

They began their voyage in their apartment, using a homemade machine to process cacao beans. Over time they cultivated their creation, sourcing beans from family farms in Madagascar, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and Ecuador. Each bar is handmade with incredible reverence for the process and history of chocolate. They are bound in ornamental papers and golden foil like a collection of rare books. Each bar offers its own story of flavors, and no two are exactly alike.
