Breathtaking Landscapes As Seen By A Retired Travel Photographer

Swapping the stethoscope and examination room for a camera and the rugged outdoors, Weerapong Chaipuck has embraced photography as a means to occupy his newly acquired free time. Since retiring from the medicine field, the Thai physician has traveled the world over, offering those of us crammed into grey cubicles a pleasant reminder that life has more to offer us than death and taxes.

Chaipuck wants you to experience that truth, too. Says Chaipuck, “As a new task of travel photographer, I experienced a lot of memorable moments from kind-hearted people during my trip. So, pay it forward, if you want to make a trip as a travel photographer too, welcome to my country. Contact me and be my guest!”. Alternatively, if you’d rather just ogle over Chaipuck’s artistic eye from the comforts of your own home, you can do so at My Modern Met.

The Perils Of Office Life Expressed With Office Supplies

The soul crushing drudgery of office life is palpable. And what truths “Office Space” brought to the silver screen, German artist Bettina Güber brings to the art gallery. Güber presents a Lewis-Carroll-meets-business-park take on the modern 9 to 5, where lilliputian employees struggle against rogue staplers, and plastic corporate pawns choke amid a storm of hole punch scraps. Relatable? We think so. For more glimpses into the microscopic mirror, check out the spread at Devid Sketchbook.

Photos Of Frozen Lighthouses Offer A Glimpse Of Eerie, Winter Beauty

There are few sights in nature more surreal than the frozen lighthouses sprinkled about Lake Michigan and Lake Erie. Splashing waves and frigid wintry storms transform lighthouses into accidental ice sculptures on the shores of these Great Lakes. Photographers encounter treacherous conditions in their artistic pursuits. They navigate through thick, icy terrains to capture glacial monuments, frost-covered surfaces and massive, cascading icicles from just the right angles. Thankfully, for those of us who lack the brawn to do that physical exploring, All That Is Interesting has navigated the internet’s forbidding terrains and brought these sights to your screen.
