Hair by Marc Laroche

Simple concept. Great Execution. That is exactly how I would describe Marc Laroche's Hair series on Flickr. To create this great series, all he had to do was photograph women flipping their hair around, and set it against a dark background. Although the concept may be simple, the execution was excellent and the results are awesome!

Dock's Edge

The text that accompanied this image on Jeremy Fall's Tumblr:

I close my eyes and breathe as the world starts crumbling behind me. Every step I take brings me closer to the end, every thought I make kills my fix of ammunition and every time I think of looking back, it tears the gauze apart. What do I do if the world’s destruction becomes my own? Where do I go if the tripwire does detonate? I look straight, straight into my self-created Eden. A garden far away where I can only pray that the distance is temporary. I stop to think. It’s my turn. Is this all just a game or am I truly walking barefoot on a pile glass holding a ticking bomb that’s ready to ignite?

Nude, 1936 by Edward Weston

A beautiful photo by Edward Weston as part of his Nude series.

Interestingly enough, while uploading this photo to Facebook, this description was automatically inserted:

"The documentary, called Eloquent Nude, which chronicles the relationship of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson is done. Charis is now 92, and she was a big part of Edward's most productive years. She is perhaps one of the most famous nudes in modern photography. Her recollections, caught on film by McCluskey -- and recreated by McCluskey -- form the heart of the film. It will premiere on March 8th at Portland Art Museum."
