Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!

Photographer Captures Portraits Of Pit Bulls in Flower Crowns To Help Save the Lives of These “Dangerous” Dogs

New York photographer Sophie Gamand, started the project Pit Bull Flower Power in 2014. She's been traveling around the United States taking pictures of pit bulls in shelters that are in need of adoption. As many are aware, the image of the pit bull has been tarnished by society, labeled as aggressive and hateful. And as a result of such labeling, they often end up abused, abandoned, and end up in shelters for the rest of their lives. 

Sophie's mission is to destroy that negative image of the pit bull but taking beautiful portraits of them in flower crowns. Flower crowns and a soft light to help soften their image and show the world the truth of their beauty and kindness. With each portrait, comes a story about the poor pup in need and she has completely changed their fate.

Thank you, Sophie Gamand!

Photographer Captures Enchanted Photos Of Horses Living in Iceland And It Looks Like a Fairy Tale

Snow and ice have always possessed a mystical quality, which is perhaps is what makes Iceland such a captivating destination. New York City-based photographer and filmmaker Drew Doggett, managed to capture a sliver of this magic in his new photo series 'In the Realm of Legends', which he describes on his website: " Set against the dreamlike backdrop of Iceland's waterfalls, black sand beaches and snowy tundras, this series highlights the relationship between a noble yet rugged breed of horses and the challenging landscape they've written into their DNA". 

Want more horse pics? These 99 horse pics might be a good place to start, and also check out these horse memes and these golden horses that are just so pretty, and without the ice and snow to help them out.

Wildlife Photographer Photographs A Mouse Rescued From A Cat's Mouth (17 Beautiful Pics)

Meet Hannah Assil, wildlife photographer extraordinaire! As a biologists daughter, her path was clear, she was a bird and wildlife addict from the very start. And while her main focus is on birds, she couldn't help taking some pics of little Fridolin! Hannah gave a little insight to Fridolin's back story, "Fridolin didn't have the start a little mouse could wish for. Before he was even able to open his eyes, he and his mother found themselves in the mouth of a cat." And unfortunately, the mom didn't survive, but as luck would have it, little Fridolin was dropped by the cat and scooped up by a kid who witnessed the act. Thanks to that small act of kindness, Hannah Assil continues, "Fridolin grew fast and made the best of his second chance at life."

"I want people to focus on the beauty of our world in all of its aspects. Especially in times like these, where nature gets destroyed and extinctions of biological species happens, it's important to evoke the passion for nature in the hearts of humans," she told ICanHasCheezburger and some good solid advice, "Be like Fridolin: Enjoy the little things in life and take some time to smell the flowers."

If you're interested in learning more about Hannah Assil or want to purchase any prints, all info can be found on her website (it is in German but that's what 'Google Translate' is for)! Or follow her on Instagram and/or Facebook.

Thank you, Hannah, for sharing your art with the world! Hannah was able to take photos of little Fridolin twice, and the results were pure magic. See the beautiful photos below:

Photographer Captures Beautiful Every Day Moments Of The Urban Deer In The Streets Of Nara, Japan

The Sika deer In Nara, Japan are not restricted to forests or parks, but rather mingle in the urban center much like humans. Although viewed as a burden sometimes, the deer population is Nara is sacred and protected by law. A Japanese Photograoherr Yoko Ishii, captures the deer in everyday moments across the city, from collectively passing down a major street, to pausing to feed their young below a stoplight.

Ishii was inspired to photograph the ways the animals interact with common city infrastructure after observing a pair of deer paused at an intersection in 2011, and especially loves photographing them while the city is at its most bare. "These picturesque moments when early in the morning the deer can be found standing in the middle of desolate intersections, not bound by man's borders and laws, yet inhabiting a man-made city is fascinating and inspiring," she explains in a statement about her ongoing series, "Beyond The Borders". 

Ishii published a book of her photography titled Dear Deer in 2015, and will be included in this year's Auckland Festival of Photography in New Zealand later on this year. You can see more of her recent work on her website and Facebook.
