FYI, the scroll ball is supposed to look like a clitoris and there is a button in the middle. Pretty happy I didn’t get this for Valentine’s Day.

If you missed my earlier post on the invisible artist, Liu Bolin, well then you might want to check it out.  This time I present to you…Li Wei!

Arranging seemingly impossible  photographs with the use of wire, mirrors, scaffolding, and some acrobatics, Li Wei has managed to create images of some very dangerous and sometimes fun looking situations.

Be sure to follow the links for more of his amazing photos.

I want to encourage people not to give in to the sucky, Valentine’s Day clichés decided by Hallmark, Hershey’s, and–find your own way of embracing love. Here’s mine:
