IBreathtaking Satellite Photos of Earth from the European Space Agency (ESA)
The European Space Agency (ESA) presented a collection of images of the Earth taken from the satellite. More here.
The ESA has an incredible Observing the Earth archive that’s updated every week and each satelitte image is usually accompanied by a brief essay to explain a bit about what you’re looking at. Collected here are some of my favorite images from the last few years taken with too many different satellites to mention, and you can search photos back through 2005.

Thrift Store Sculptures by Sayaka Ganz
Artist Sayaka Ganz creates her sculptures using thrift store plastics. Both her Japanese roots and the Japanese Shinto belief that ‘all objects and organisms have spirits’ heavily influence Sayaka. With those as her starting point, she feels that art arise ‘from the passion for fitting odd shapes together and a sympathy toward discarded objects.’
Slevin Aaron (Poland) - Secret garden
The emotion photographer Slevin Aaron is dealing with photography for 7 years, creating photos for magazines, books covers, model agencies and many other projects: “It is what I love, the way in which I can show human emotions frozen in the one frame, and this is for me photography, feelings, emotions, nostalgy, happiness and sadness, love and betrayal, life! So I started to create my own world which is not only a reflection of the ideas in my head but also my feelings.”

Matteo Capobianco, aka ufocinque born in Novara in 1981 is a graphic designer and street artist living and working between Milan and Novara. Despite of his age, he’s already an affirmed name in the european street-art scene, and he’s often busy collaborating with companies, art galleries and creative events.
The work of Ufo5 is characterized by the huge presence of symbolisms, labyrinths and magic signs; he uses to paint our society’s virtues and vices through metaphores and symbolical images, often using the evocative power of the lone black and white.
