Toddler naps with his 2-month-old puppy every day.
Blogger Jessica Shyba and her family adopted an adorable 7-week-old mutt. They named him Theo. On his third day as part of their family, Theo joined Jessica and her toddler son Beau for afternoon snuggle time. Beau fell asleep and then so did Theo.The next day, he joined in the naptime ritual again. “And so began,” Shyba says, “the most organic and beautiful friendship I have ever witnessed.” Since then, every day Theo waits for Beau to fall asleep and then joins him for his two-hour snooze.
Even on sunny days, a rarity in Manchester, England, photographer, digital artist and film-maker Andrew Brooks spends hours in a darkened studio striving to show us the bigger picture. Weeks, months, sometimes years pass by as he re-touches picture after picture, to create the perfect moment for us, the viewer, to fall headlong into. In recent years his vision has flourished and evolved into large panoramic scenes of nature and forensically detailed cityscapes. This gives his work a timeless and fantastical appeal capturing the imagination of the public and landing high-profile international projects such as the Hidden City Series and commissions by the BBC. In his work with the Hidden projects he explores the unseen sides of cities to create images that make citizens, city planners, councils, captains of industry and magazine editors see their home with fresh eyes. Brooks’s latest work with the BBC investigates the power and awe in nature. His early experiences growing up in the Fens countryside established the foundation of this view and he cites artists from the Romantic era as re-igniting this lifelong passion.
