“There’s nothing simple about simple,” says Eric Landon (@tortus), the American owner and master potter of Tortus Studio in Copenhagen, Denmark. “Over the years, my work has become simpler and simpler. But the simple-looking things are often the most difficult ones to make, because you can’t hide technical inadequacy behind a really simple form. I’ve realized that making a great piece of pottery is like crafting a poem — you have to use very few words and use them artfully.”

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // Too much of a good thing or a complicated dance between humans and sharks? In search of answers, I traveled on a @Sea_Legacy expedition to my native country of Mexico, where off the paradisiac island of Isla Mujeres, hundreds of whale sharks congregate every summer to feed on plankton and fish spawn. Not surprisingly, they attract hordes of tourists that marvel at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim among these gentle giants. As I spoke to old fishermen, tourism operators, citizens of the island and scientists, I found many unexpected answers. #FollowMe at @CristinaMittermeier as I try to untangle the complex relationship of wildlife-based conservation and tourism.

The sun lights up the gold leaf that adorns Kinkaku-ji, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. While the site dates back to the 14th century, the current pavilion was built in the 1950s after the original burned down.

Photo @stephen_matera // Aerial view of the Juneau Ice field in summer. It's hard to comprehend how much ice lies below. The Juneau Ice field, just north of Juneau, is the fifth largest ice field in the western hemisphere at an astounding 3,900 square kilometers. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Alaska and around the world. #glacier #icecap #aerial #wilderness

#followmeto the Karnak Temple with @natalyosmann. After arriving to Luxor at around 4 a.m we got the confirmation that we can come to the temple in the early morning for sunrise, so we only slept for an hour, but it was totally worth it. It is such a magical place and with just us being there it was an amazing experience as we could also have time to ourselves and feel this place. Watch our video from Egypt!! LINK IN BIO!
What would you like us to share about our trip to Egypt?
#Следуйзамной в Карнакский Храм. После приземления в Луксоре около 4 утра, нам наконец-то подтвердили, что мы сможем зайти в Карнакский Храм на рассвете. Поспав всего лишь час мы ни разу не пожалели - потому что быть одним в этом магическом месте - это бесценно. Посмотрите наше полное видео из Египта! Ссылка в БИО!
