Instagram Shapes Series







For the last month and a half I’ve been posting a series of found “shapes” on Instagram. The objects in the images are various places, signs, or vintage objects. Each image expresses my affection for simple, clean and effective design. It’s also about connecting with those lines; It’s about the feeling you get when viewing it.

It’s a challenge finding new compositions that really give off that spark, but it’s also fun. It’s also really interesting to see how others react to certain shapes and colors. Hope you enjoy!

Weekend Inspiration: Michael Murphy

Posted by Jonathan











“Forgotten Modernism” is the title of an ongoing visual exploration of San Francisco’s rich catalog of modern architecture by Michael Murphy:

Often overlooked, Modern architecture in San Francisco has played an important role in the ongoing Modernist Movement, and this work is an attempt to acknowledge the contribution that these stunning buildings make to the visual landscape.
Using bold colors and a stylized graphics, I portray this architecture not as something that quietly blends into a background, but rather elevating achievements that embody the best and highest principles that Modern architecture has to offer all of us.

Wish these were sold at every gift shop here in San Francisco.

Its been over a year since we started our series “Instagram Photo Favorites” we’ve highlighted over 70+ photographers and I wanted to just got back to not only recap but to share other great shots the photographers have taken since then.

Here’s a gallery of the 1st Edition Instagrammers:

Owen Perry

Absolutely gorgeous work from Owen Perry aka Circa 1983. Really getting close to that late 70s / early 80s National Geographic look with some of this stuff while a lot of it is thoroughly modern. Check the rest of his portfolio, it’s really deep and you can watch his work evolve. Excited to see where he takes it.

Kyle Thompson

Posted by Scott










Self described surrealist photographer Kyle Thompson has been doing some very interesting work over the past year. He’s a really interesting case of someone simply creating incredible art and gaining exposure based on nothing more than his talent and hard work — and a little internet luck. I first saw his work on Reddit a while back (I know, it’s a veritable wasteland over there but once in a while some truly good things rise to the surface) and while conceptually it was pretty engaging, the execution just wasn’t there. Skip forward a bit and Kyle’s work popped up on again today. This guy has really progressed in a very short time. Check out his original submission and compare to his recent work. Night and day; I’ve seen people spend years traversing the space that separates these two galleries.
