Soft option

Love the irreverence behind the idea of making weapons from harmless materials, and so beautifully executed by the phenomenally talented duo Kyle Bean and Sam Hofman who have worked together on countless projects.  See more from both here: Kyle Bean & Sam Hofman

Ornament your home

Met the wonderful Chris Ehrmann who has just set up an agency called Goldteeth & Co in NY (cos guess what, he has gold teeth!).  Fell in love with Benjamin Bouchet's work shown here.  Adore the almost daylight lighting in these shots and the bonkers arrangement of shoes, bags and groceries around the rather exquisite home.  Thinking the dresser in my kitchen doesn't look so dissimilar although a lot less chic... Goldteeth & Co

What will you be when you grow up?

French photographer and creative director Malo has had hours of fun dressing up his baby boy in all kinds of possible future career outfit options.  Think Baby is happiest in the cardinal's mitre although I love him best as the surfer dude complete with dodgy tatt.  See more here: Malo

Super spectators

In the wake of Bradley Wiggins's extraordinary Tour de France & Olympic success,  London-based photographer Mark Leary shares with us on his blog these shots taken of the spectators at the Tour de France on the Col de Tourmalet climb in the Pyrannees.  The Col de Tourmalet is over 2000metres above sealevel and is said to be the toughest mountain climb in the Tour so I guess for the cyclists, the support from the fans at a spot like this is at its most needed.  Mark is an avid surfer and this passion for pursuits in the great outdoors and the kindred spirits of those who pursue them is a constant theme in his work. I have long been a fan and can't wait to see the rest in the series which he is promising to share later in the year.  mark leary

Want to see an Olympic medal...?

These stunning shots by Sandro Sodano really convey the symbolism of those coveted medals and the  power of the torch which drew so many of us out onto the streets earlier in the summer.  Shots to cherish forever I think.  sandro sodano
