Iridient by Fabian Oefner

Iridient - Fabian Oefner

Switzerland-based art photographer Fabian Oefner used high-speed flash photography to capture the life of soap bubbles from their creation to the exact moment of bursting in his stunning photo series titled Iridient.

Teachers – Fairy Tales

I recently discovered Teachers, A Web Series, and found these ladies and their shorts extremely funny. Conceived by Matt Miller and The Katydids, Teachers chronicles the misdeeds and awkward interactions of six mid-western elementary school teachers just tryin’ to navigate the pitfalls of internet dating and adult female friendships all while molding America’s youth.

My favorite episode so far is Fairy Tales (above). For more information on Teachers and their episodes, check out their website or follow them on YouTube.
