This weekends’s art: Animal drawing by Stefan Marcu Art

As for this weekend I chose to actually present you one of Stefan Marcu’s drawings that are clearly made in a very distinguished way, considering the hours spent on each and every piece of art. I thought that you will need something to go with your relaxing weekend that you will probably consume it with a cup of tea, a good book and a long walk maybe, if the weather will behave of course. 1383119_785066128275133_2119510169010453736_n

Make room, a summer of super moons is approaching!

The mysterious light and look of the Moon will be bathing our planet in July, August and September, according to www.space.com .

A super moon is considered to be 14 % bigger than 30 % brighter than other full moons. A supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.

The term “supermoon” is not astronomical, but originated in modern astrology. The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the supermoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the evidence of such a link is widely held to be unconvincing.

The most recent occurrence was on 30 January 2014. The next occurrence will be on 10 August 2014, which will be the closest encounter in 2014.
The opposite phenomenon, an apogee-syzygy, has been called a micromoon,though this term is not as widespread as supermoon.

Traditional Romanian land explored by the photographer Rena Effendi

00037643_o

As per today’s “What we like” post we chose the article wrote on www.instituteartist.com  about Transylvania, a traditional Romanian land, a story which Rena Effendi tells after having an amazing experience in a place like Maramures, where she stayed in a 800 people village named Hoteni.

Two months in the fields, shooting and experiencing the life that the Maramures people where living day by day.

“People spend the day in the field,” she said. “They take their food, they take naps. You see these women climbing on top of the haystack in special trousers so the wind doesn’t blow up their skirts.”

Ms. Effendi asked one family why they kept doing what they do, when they could simply go to a market. “They said, ‘Well, what are we going to do with all this land, then?’ ” she recalled. ” ‘It’s just going to sit there?’ ”

A farmer in Breb told Adam Nicolson, writing for the July 2013 issue of National Geographic, that houses there had cost six haystacks in Communist times. “Hay is gold,” It is also an art: “You can even guess who the owner is by the shape of a haystack,” she said. “They have their individual styles and forms.”

But, while Maramures still has the look of a fairy tale, it is on the verge of vanishing.

Visit the full article and gallery on www.instituteartist.com

Born in 1977 in Baku, Azerbaijan, Rena Effendi has been photographing since 2001. From the outset, Effendi has focused her documentary work on the oil industry’s effects on people’s lives in her own country. As a result, she followed a 1,700 km oil pipeline through Georgia and Turkey, collecting stories along the way. This work of six years was published in 2009 in her first book “Pipe Dreams: A Chronicle of Lives along the Pipeline”.

With several international photography awards such as “Fifty Crows” Documentary Photography award, Mario Giacomelli Memorial Fund award, and Getty Images Editorial grant , Rena Effendi continues to expend her work and looks for all greate creations of this world through the camera lens.
