"I hope the style and ambience makes you feel at ease," says the anonymous person behind today's pick, sharing almost 500 of his/her favorite sites. Cool Flash interface and beautiful screenshots. After spending over 2 hours there this morning and discovering some truly great examples of design excellence (and, in the process, revisiting several sites listed here), I've just got to share it with those of you seeking a little design inspiration – it'll probably do the trick...  [webbunker < robocore.]   (RSS Feed)

"Stop. Look. Listen. Now isn't here for long ..." Jean-Marc says "there's magic in the mundane" and whether it's chickens in a window, a beautiful face in a crowd, or a driveby view of an odd forest, his video art does a fine job of capturing things "that will never occur the same way ever again." Three dozen short videos, all quite enjoyable...  [Newstoday®]   (RSS Feed)

From Germany, an amazingly comprehensive "independent and non-profit website" focusing on Metro transit systems. The World Metro List compares over 150 systems. Another section looks at Metro Arts and Architecture with photos from almost 40 worldwide metro stations. And speaking of photos, don't miss Metros with a View. Add a big gallery of metro logos from around the world, plus other resources and information – it's all things metro. Kudos to M. Rohde for putting it all together...   (RSS Feed)

"My camera rarely leaves my side, and when I'm not bothering my friends with the lens in their face, I'm shooting random macros of shiny objects I find interesting." There's three things I really like about Ethan's photoblog (besides all the interesting pics, that is). First, you can choose to view smaller, lower-bandwidth versions of all photos and your preference is stored in a session cookie – nice touch for users with slower connections. You also have a choice between light and dark page backgrounds. Finally, and I really like this – Ethan makes most of the photos available in desktop size. I should mention that the site's not only a photoblog – Ethan calls it a personal website and there's usually more content accompanying his Photo of the Day. Other things too, plus the hPhoto collection, going back to 2002...    (RSS Feed)

Watch for heart police as you experience this odd dreamland. "I enjoy taking baths, collecting taxadermy and sunning myself" says Mara, the creative spirit behind La Galleria, where each image seems a story in itself. Rock on! An assortment of vivid visions I won't attempt to describe – wouldn't wanna spoil yer fun...;~))  [bright::light]   (RSS Feed)

"My name is Clara and I live near Milano (Italy), in a small small town. I've been interested in visual arts for about ten years, with a particular interest in painting and photography." What you get is a gallery of beautiful images on various themes, some wallpapers, plus a second site, Clara's Photolife – excellent!  [PaginaInvalida < Brasil Inspired]   (RSS Feed)

"What we are really after: what we are really after in this publication is the publishing of material that is ignored in the mainstream press and the even the independent news. Anything that has reason and passion." In 2002, it was said that "every writer under 40 is aware of this site." Young writers. Canadian culture. Submissions "that pertain to the interaction, in Canada, between people will be considered the highest rate of priority (before first, if that is possible)." Launched back in February, 2001, there's almost 500 works in the archives (mostly words, some including interesting visual touches) – and don't miss the various About documents for entertaining insight into what makes this litzine tick...  [wood s lot]   (RSS Feed)

The photoblog archives go back to the beginning of this year – a real variety of both color and b&w – I love this shot (just one of many). What really drew me into Fernando's work, though, is his black and white photographic portfolio, "the result of a 6 year travel (back and forth) around Brazilian cities." There's 9 essays, or series, and they're all simply superb!  [Brasil Inspired]   (RSS Feed)
