THE MUSIC


VIDEO: FLOATING ABOVE NEW YORK!


Over the past year or two I’ve been extremely addicted to YouTube shows that are geared to travel, food and life. In my recent channel discovery, I’ve learn about this guy by the name of Louis. Louis’s daily Vlog is all about his life as he travel the world with his friends while trying all sorts of new things and inspiring people like myself. AMAZING! I’ve only watched about four of his videos thus far and so far this is my favorite. Why? Because… Just like Urban Exploring, it has an adventurous aspect to it, you learn something new and simply vibe and enjoy the moment as if you’re there. Lu does a great job with taking you threw the steps and manage to grab some cool shots and angles! If you like it, then just check out FUN FOR LOUIS on the daily for more video stories like this.

Watching complete strangers kiss for the first time is really beautiful

I came across this video yesterday morning and was drawn to the beautiful photography. This black and white video is so crisp.

The contrasting greyscale variations of the wardrobe creates depth in a scene that could easily be bland. Black and white can often be monotone, but the director did an awesome job at keeping the look interesting.

The secret is that the clothing has different patterns, lines and textures. Now! Who scouted the ‘kissers’? Each and every one of them are very attractive, and their personalities compliment their look. Overall this video is pretty dope from the sound to the quality of the film. Oh, and one more creative note… notice that this video was shot in a studio with no props? This is yet another brilliant idea, outside of having cameras on the kissers, it was like being in a room alone.
