Whenever yoga instructors Claudine and Honza Lafond aren’t teaching at their Sydney-based studio YogaBeyond, they’re often wandering off to exotic locations and commemorating their journeys with graceful poses. Over the years, they’ve taken their mind and body endeavors everywhere. They’ve posed in front of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, jungles of Bali, London, and even on Cockatoo Island. The couple doesn’t pose separately in their photos. Instead, they work together and pull off amazing acrobatic stances that require strength, balance, and trust of one another. It shows you just how incredible the human body is. These yogi-soulmates never let love slow them down from seeing the world from new perspectives.
Created by photographer Kyle Low, Sama-Sama is a set of photographs that will resonate to Malaysians, telling them that they do not need any political schemes, or religious sanctity to be united, when we already are united by the things we do and enjoy together.
Below phenomenal portraits of Siamese fighting fish (betta) are presented by Thai based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich with great patience and skills. By setting perfectly placed lighting, Angkatavanich was able to create dramatic highlights and shadows which give personality to each little betta. Waiting patiently, Angkatavanich times his shots perfectly to capture the beauty of the flowing fins when they twist or turn. It is so clear that you can even see the facial expression on them. Check some our editor pickers below and find more on Visarute Angkatavanich’s 500px page.
