Byzantine  Monuments of Thessaloniki / The Rotunda:

The mosaic from the central dome of the Rotunda (4th century A.D), and a view of it from the ground with the surrounding scaffolds.

And now for a public announcement:

I took both pictures from the same spot with two different lenses. Whenever I am at an archaeological site or museum I always follow the strict guidelines of how a visitor should behave- which means I won’t take any photographs if that’s not allowed. Quite often I use a lot of photoshop to correct the perspective distortion that might occur when shooting mosaics and distant objects from less convenient angles.

So whenever you find yourself in an archaeological site, or museum, never engage in risky and/or unacceptable behaviour- towards yourself and the artifacts- to take a pretty picture.

Namibia’s Hipsters: From the sapeurs of Kinshasa, the fashionistas of Lagos and to the streets of Jozi, vintage style is trending in Africa.   

Designer, tailor and stylist Lourens Loux Gebhardt of Loux the Vintage Guru is now collaborating with Khumbala, a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, to launch a street-style website that seeks to inspire Africans to step out in style and introduce them to the merits of vintage fashion.

A fashion revolution in the making; “When we collaborate we call ourselves LIA (Love is African), and we’re currently playing a big part by simply inspiring fashionistas around the African continent.”

Usually decked out in well-cut 60’s suits, tweed jackets, round spectacles and trilby hats, Lourens explains, “Many people aren’t interested in wearing vintage, they just see it as used clothing… I manage to dress myself cheaply and end up looking like a million bucks.”
