Although people haven’t flocked to movie theaters too frequently this summer (blame it on the World Cup, maybe?), there have been more than a handful of new films to get excited about. From Disney’s Maleficent to the all-new Guardians of the Galaxy, the summer’s hottest films have gotten people talking. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at 2014′s summer hits and misses.

Guardians of the Galaxy

While Guardians of the Galaxy is the latest in a string of rapid-fire Marvel movies, these guardians aren’t your average bunch of superheroes. Based on the Marvel comic-book series, this group of superheroes consists of various imaginary and otherworldly characters, including a spunky raccoon named Rocket Raccoon. To create these diverse characters, the film—which features big-name actors like Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Vin Diesel—required its fair share of special effects. These two images go behind the scenes to give viewers a quick look at the time and energy that went into creating this unique group of superheroes.

Russian photographer Margarita Kareva is both the subject and author of a fairy tale. Just three short years into her photography career, and she has already carved out a niche – as well as an ever-expanding fan base – in the world of fantasy photography.

Specializing in images that beautifully transform her female subjects into princesses and witches alike, there is a definitive fairytale feel in each portrait. Some are based on specific, well-known stories, but all are inspired by her love of fantasy books.

Combining real props and costumes with digital manipulations and other surreal elements, Margarita Kareva captures the wonder and imagination children feel growing up with magical characters and locations, bewitching us with her technical and creative capacities.

It’s easy to misunderstand our size and importance in the scope of the universe. Current natural events suggest that yes, people do have a knack for altering–and perhaps irrevocably so–our climate and ecosystems. And when you look at just how vast these systems and landforms are compared to our puny stature, it’s pretty mystifying that we can. The photos at 500PX highlight that stark contrast, and we encourage you to check it out.

National Geographic Traveler magazine is every jet setter’s dream. Chock full of travel tips, guides to exotic locales and full-page color spreads of some of the most beautiful sights imaginable, the magazine could make even the most stationary homebody beg for adventure. So it’s no surprise each year when thousands of photographers worldwide provide images for the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.

The rules are simple: photographers submit a recent digital picture for one of four categories that include travel portraits, outdoor scenes, sense of place or spontaneous moments. The judges then evaluate submissions, and winners are announced relatively soon after.

Kodachrome. Nebraska. 1942. The way life once was: fresh produce as a surplus commodity and priced as such. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, a pound of oranges will cost you around a dollar and some coins.

What You Missed At Mercedes-Benz Miami Swimsuit Week

August 3, 2014

New York Fashion Week’s slutty little sister, Miami Swimsuit Week (formally known as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Miami), turned 10 this summer.

MINIMALE ANIMALE

MINIMALE ANIMALE is the product of designer/stylist Cassandra Kellogg’s obsession with the beach and “all things associated with the ocean.” Kellogg started out concocting her own waterproof creations for music festivals, water sports, and beach trips, and after receiving tons of positive feedback she decided to launch her own line.

During an interview, Kellogg stated that the inspiration behind her 2015 collection was a “motorcycle 90s dominatrix.” We think she hit her mark.
