We don't want to alarm you, but September is here. We may need a moment to sit down and let that sink in, and what better thing to explore whilst doing so than Best of the Month? Here are our favourite things, accounts, tracks and community photos from the past month - enjoy!
Best of the Web
This is what one of those viral Facebook cooking videos would look like if it was directed by Wes Anderson.
This photographer fabricated a purely DIY camera flash setup using just a Big Mac box, a flashlight and a drinks straw. The results (shot on iPhone) are STUNNING. Learn more about the project here.
Sicilian artist Marco Mangione, known as Gue, has transformed Darsena Popup’s Ravenna skatepark into a dynamic, coluor composition. Darsena Popup, a sports complex at the edge of the river, is close to Ravenna’s historical center. In an effort to refurbish the urban area, the installation creates a clever synthesis between the artwork and its environment.
Camera brand Lomography have just announced the world's first fully analogue instant camera for Instax square film. They're launching via Kickstarter - you can learn more & back the project here.
Gudak Cam is an iPhone app that mimics the 'Kodak Moments' of disposable cameras. The rolls are limited to 24 shots which you can only run through every 12 hours. Once the roll is complete, you need to wait 3 days for the photos to process, adding 'accidental' and random scratches and light-leaks before you can view them. Download it here.
Lonely Planet's 'Trips' app is a beautiful, simple and intuitive way to share travel experiences. Upload photos and videos to your timeline, then share your trip with your friends, family and fellow travellers.
