Video: Europe at Night

NIGHTVISION from Luke Shepard on Vimeo.

A couple of years back I shared a dreamy video of Paris by photographer Luke Shepard on this blog.

He recently released a new video, and dare I say, it's even better.

Luke traveled to 36 cities in 21 countries across Europe and shot more than 20,000 photographs to create this film called Nightvision. He describes it as a "celebration of the brilliant and diverse architecture found across Europe."

See it for yourself.

EX-PATS: From New York Streets to Tulum Sands

Switching careers is always a bit of a tango, but for designer David Graziano hopping from New York City to Tulum, Mexico was a no-brainer. David spent the first 13 years of his career designing NYC nightclubs like Pink Elephant and Kiss & Fly, but it wasn’t until he left these fast-paced streets behind that he discovered his true calling. 

Moving to the sandy shores of Tulum gave David a “giant lift,” and he began building Ahau Hotel from scratch as soon as he landed. David’s only goal is to provide a paradise for his guests—and perhaps now to his wife and baby girl as well.
