Mind the gap

Tourists or locals, all that use the tube, know this announcement when stepping out or in the train. This warning has it's own history and it goes deeper than just the recording itself. The story you are about to witness happened in real life. It's writer-director Luke Flanagan tells

The actual mind the gap announcement is as iconic a part of London as the double decker bus or the post box. For Londoners it goes deeper — many of us remember the actual voice of Oswald Lawrence on the Northern Line, so when we hear it now we have a recall to that time. There’s a kind of nostalgia for growing up in London and using the tube.

Far north

Located within the Arctic Circle this archipelago is one of the untouched lands that lives by what the nature dictates. This movie has been shot in January with the shortest daylight hours and strong winds are common. Look at the breathtaking sceneries, small cottage-like houses in this remote place with it's mountaintops on the north of Norway.

I was recently visiting the captial of Hungary for a short trip. These few days were densely packed. It was my second visit. The first one was during the International Hitchhiking Championships when I got there by autostop, stayed just for 2 days and did not manage to see much at that time. This time it was going to be different.

One morning in Italy

A beautiful sunny day in Pisa, Italy. A couple discussing their relationship while taking part in a photo shot at the same time. At a first glance it seems like an ordinary day on holidays for an ordinary couple. This short has a little twist but you'll have to see for yourself. The video was directed by Oscar Boyson, born and raised in Maine. Currently, working and living NYC, USA.

Soviet bus stops

Photographer Christopher Herwig has been hunting bus stops in remote corners of the former Soviet Union since he stumbled upon them while biking to St. Petersburg in 2002. He has covered more than 30,000 km by car, bus and taxi in 13 countries discovering and documenting these strange works of art created behind the Iron Curtain. From the shores of the Black Sea to the endless Kazakh steppe, the bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time.

There is a saying that everyone has their Mount Everest. Everyone has a peak they need to climb and prove something. Either literal or figurative. Hopefully proving to themselves and not the others and being a vital component to achieve a personal milestone. For some of those peaks you have to prepare weeks, for others - months or years. This one is of the latter kind but worth the wait. Preparations have begun. Official hashtag: #7134
