We always talk about motherhood and see many touching photos of the bonding photos between mother and babies. However, we can’t ignore the important the role father plays in their kids’s lives, even when they are babies. More and more fathers take their responsibilities to help mother with the baby – they teach, they protect, they love, they are there for their kids. Here we rounded up some cute yet touching photos of father and their babies, let give our honor to great fathers in the world.
Smiling is probably one of the most powerful “language” which can uplift and change the mood of almost any situation. French photographer Réhahn tries to explore the culture of smiles around the world through a portrait project he calls “The Hidden Smile“. The project began when Réhahn was searching for a cover for his book titled Vietnam, Mosaic of Contrasts. He found Vietnamese, especially females, instinctually cover their faces as they giggle, speak or smile. The reason behind of the covering smile can be dated back hundreds of years when a common belief was that only evil spirits, savages, and wild animals possessed long, white teeth. Although the tradition and cultures have changed over time this practise has become outdated, however it is still a natural reaction to cover up ones teeth upon meeting new people or taking a photo in certain areas. Even the mouth has been covered, peoples’ smiles still radiated – that is where the hidden smile comes from.

Welding, you probably will never connect it with art anyway, becomes an unexpected art form in Engineer Richard Lauth’s hand. Using his imaginative expertise and amount of other skills, Lauth created psychedelic works that display various animals, insects, and even pop culture characters. His portfolio boasts characters like Star Wars’ Yoda, the grinning Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, and an adorable minion from Despicable Me, amongst many others. It is not easy to create a figure like these, especially to achieve a rainbow-like effect on these metal, welders must maintain proper heat control and pressure. If you like this welded artwork, don’t miss Lauth’s Instagram. And if you REALLY like them, you can go to his Etsy shop where Lauth has some of his work for sale.
