Ever wonder what it would be like to swim with jellyfish? Travel and adventure photographer Kien Lam fulfilled this fantasy by flying across the globe to Jellyfish Lake in Micronesia. Anyone who has been stung by a jellyfish can attest—it’s not a pleasant experience. But Jellyfish Lake in Palau is filled with millions of jellyfish that have evolved in a way that makes it safe for humans to swim in the same waters.
Flickr photographer Patrcia Almeida recently shot these great photos of a wonderfully whimsical umbrella art installation in Portugal. Like something out of a fairy tale, the umbrellas look almost like they’re magically floating in mid-air. As she writes, “In July, in gueda (a Portuguese town), some streets are decorated with colorful umbrellas. I felt like a kid, amazed by all that color!” She calls it Umbrella Sky.
Love this kind of outdoor art. Bonus points that it provides nice shade for those strolling along the street.
Update: According to the Daily Mail, this installation is an initiative by the council in Agueda, Portugal and is a part of an art festival called Agitagueda.
In addition to those photos, here are some by Diana Tavares.
Gorgeous, isn’t it?
