instagram “On a day where the waves were particularly nasty I noticed an infuriated sea,” says Brazil Instagrammer Juliana Rocha (@rochajuliana). “From then on, I was inspired to try to capture the beach’s daily moods through the #copacabanasentimental series. In the beginning, I was able to separate my emotions from the emotions of the sea,” she says. “Today, I am not sure where Copacabana Beach ends and Juliana begins.” For more of Juliana's moving pictures of “the place where the ocean meets the sky,” follow @rochajuliana and browse the #copacabanasentimental hashtag.

    OMG MUST READ! •••••• It's a normal Monday morning for Mia. Maths class first, the worst class of all. As Mia walks into class she notices a new boy sitting by himself. Mia can hear the girls behind her giggle and talk quietly about how hot the new boy is. 5 minutes later Mr Smith walks in. He tells everyone to pair up. Mia and the new boy are the only two without partners and Mr Smith tells Mia to sit next to the new boy.

    Mai: hi, I'm Mia.

    New boy: hey I'm jake.

    Mia: so you just moved here?

    Jake: yeah. This is my 6th school in a year.

    Mia: wow! You move a lot.

    Jake: yeah I know. It's because of my dad's work.

    Mia: oh fair enough @STORY.BELOW

    Mia and jake become close even though Mia has a boyfriend. Everyday they talk in maths. Jake tells Mia his problems and Mia tells jake hers. Mia feels herself starting to fall in love with Jake. How could she not? Jake knows all her secrets and flaws. He knows that both her parents are absent from we life. For the first time Mia feels like she has someone who cares about her. One Friday afternoon after school Jake comes to Mia's house. They lay on the backyard grass and talk. •
    Jake: I love hanging with you Mia.

    Mia: and I love hanging with you too.

    Jake: I love you Mia.

    Mia: I know. But I have a boyfriend.

    Jake: break up with him.

    Mia: I can't. I'm afraid of what he will do.

    Jake: I can protect you. I need to be with you Mia. I promise I will keep you safe.

    Mia: pinky promise?

    Jake: yes, I pinky promise.

    Mia okay, I will break up with him tomorrow.

    Mia and Jake spend the night together. Jake leaves the next morning to go home. On Monday morning when everyone goes back to school Mia skips because she is feeling unwell. After a week of still not feeling better Mia decided to go to the hospital. What the doctor tells Mia changes her whole life...

instagram São Paulo might be best known for its gray cityscapes, but local Instagrammer Anderson Angelico's (@andersonangelico) photos tell a more colorful story. “I look for colors in São Paulo, which is known for being full of traffic and dull-looking cars. It’s not easy to find color here, but if you pay close attention you can find it. Colors bring happiness and remind me of something childlike," says Anderson, who loves exploring hidden and winding streets. Whenever possible, he tries to place people in front of his urban scenarios. “Streets are incredibly inspiring to me. They are full of people, hidden colors and so many different situations just waiting to be captured.” To see more photos as Anderson colors in São Paulo's gray areas, follow @andersonangelico on Instagram.

instagram Copenhagen food and travel journalist Nana Hagel (@nana_ha) landed an internship in New York City through Instagram. She had been following the Instagram images of Karen Mordechai, founder of Sunday Suppers (@sundaysuppers). “I immediately fell in love with her style," Nana says. “I saw that she was looking for help and I knew I had to apply." Nana joined the team on Wednesday. “Most incredibly, we met on Instagram," Karen says, “and would have likely never connected otherwise." Photo of @nana_ha by @sundaysuppers #todayimet 2d

instagram There are stunning similarities between the real-life town of Narni and the fictional world of Narnia: blazing green hills, clear blue skies and picturesque stone structures.

In fact, the classic fantasy series "The Chronicles of Narnia," written by C.S. Lewis in 1950, is rumored to have been inspired by this small Italian town 80 kilometers north of Rome. According to biographer Walter Hooper, Lewis was fascinated by ancient history, and Narni—named “Narnia” in Roman times—was highlighted by the children's author in his personal atlas.

Whether Lewis visited Narni has never been confirmed, but even today, its cobblestone streets and castle fortress look like they belong in a magical, medieval novel. And while there are no mythical, talking creatures roaming the land, Narni still feels like a place pulled straight out of our childhood imaginations.

instagram Professional dancer Rauf Yasit (@rubberlegz) can stretch into such seemingly impossible shapes that you might think he has no bones in his body. His self-portraits on Instagram are called "Freezes" that he says require him to "click, run, and quickly get into the pose." Some positions he can hold for only a few seconds, others for much longer. "With time you get to know your body," he says. "You grow into it." The son of a folk dance teacher from Kurdistan who would make him perform traditional Kurdish dances at weddings, Rauf fell in love with breakdancing as a 12-year-old in Germany. His life as Rubber Legz began when an early back injury forced him to take a different approach, shifting his focus from acrobatics to flexibility. He started watching contortion videos and integrated elements of yoga into his breakdance moves. Rauf is now a full-time dancer with his stage group, Flying Steps, who are currently on tour in Germany. He says he wants to "express pure and beautiful things" with his dancing and credits the Instagram community as a motivation for pushing the boundaries of his art—and flexibility.

For more breakdance contortionism, follow @rubberlegz.

instagram “Usually we send each other ideas, sketches and imagery throughout the week leading up to our shoot,” says Leta Sobierajski (@letasobierajski), who collaborates with partner Wade Jeffree (@wadejeffree) on “Complements,” a weekly series of unconventional portraits. “We’re inspired both by hilarious couple photography from the Internet and beautiful imagery from couples in history.” Wade, a graphic designer, and Leta, an art director, had been looking for a way to collaborate and decided to explore their creativity—and relationship—through collaborative portraits shot in their Brooklyn apartment. “The portraiture often becomes surreal, funny and romantic,” says Leta, “and it helps depict our personalities and the way we think together.” To see more imaginative portraits from Wade and Leta, follow @wadejeffree and @letasobierajski.

instagram Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPtodayimet

The goal this weekend is to get outside of your comfort zone, make a new friend and share a portrait with his or her story in your caption. Some tips to get you started:

This project is as much about the caption as it is the photo. Approach someone, introduce yourself and only ask to take a portrait after you've been able to chat for a while. As you talk with people, don't be afraid to ask surprising questions: ask about their pasts, learn about their goals and try to discover what inspires them. If you're not feeling up to chatting with strangers, strike up a conversation with a coworker or neighbor you've always wanted to get to know better. For those starting school, use this project as an opportunity to meet new classmates, people in your dorm or even teachers and professors. Finally, when shooting your portrait, think about how the photo can help tell the person's story. Elements like environment, body language and even the lighting can say a lot, so be sure to keep them in mind.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPtodayimet hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any tagged image taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured Monday morning.

For more examples and inspiration, check out blog.instagram.com.

instagram “Although I’m now officially a Finnish citizen, I often still feel as though I’ve just moved here,” says São Paulo native Ana Carolina Vieira (@carolinavd), who moved to Helsinki after falling in love 10 years ago. “The midnight sun during the summer and the snowy landscapes in the winter still amaze me every time.” As a decorator, Ana Carolina believes her visual aesthetic has evolved in her new home. “Long winters take up the vast majority of the year, making things naturally monochrome. Life is slower here, which translates into a clean and peaceful aesthetic,” she observes. Still, images of São Paulo’s hustle and bustle often make her homesick. “Pictures always remind me of the people and places that were part of my life back home. I start dreaming of everything I would do if I were there. To cope with being homesick, I spend time with my Finnish loved ones and try to see and enjoy the best of my new home. My dog Emma helps me a lot, too.” For more photos from Ana Carolina's new home, follow @carolinavd on Instagram.

instagram Welcome to another #ArtThursday! The sweet but sinister works of Los Angeles artist Scott Hove (@scotthove) are characterized by fierce jaws and other dangerous elements ensconced in ornately decorated cakes. “Are these themes in conflict or in harmony?” asks Scott, who seeks to at once draw in and repel with his creations. “Cake decorating is not normally associated with the fine arts,” explains Scott, “but when I saw the emotional power of the medium, it was apparent it needed further investigation.” With that, Scott’s “Cakeland” series was born. While his works of art are not edible, Scott’s methods—chronicled on Instagram in great detail—are drawn from baking. As he explains, “I enjoy learning diverse traditional decorative techniques as a hobby and applying them to my art." Photo by @scotthove 6d

instagram “I use a lot of drawing techniques, but right now I especially love watercolor and ink,” says Bangkok art director and illustrator Jiranarong Wongsoontorn (@jiranarong). His favorite themes to draw are things that make him feel joyous and peaceful, such as children, flowers and cats. “The main concept of my work is happiness, which means that the photos and videos I share are also made from my happiness,” Jiranarong explains. Through Instagram, Jiranarong feels that he is sharing more than just images of his drawings: “I'm very glad to know that many of my followers can feel the same happiness through my work—I am often inspired and learning new things from the people I'm following as well.” For more photos and videos of Jiranarong's illustrations, follow @jiranarong.

instagram “Sculpt what you love” has been the life-long philosophy of artists Jarrod and Brandon Shiflett (@shiflettbros)—and the self-described "comic book nerds” are making their living doing just that. “Jarrod and I started sculpting about 20 years ago because of a mutual love of comic books,” says Brandon. “We wanted to see our favorite comic book characters in three dimensions.” The Texas brothers' joint Instagram account showcases some of the most impressive pieces in their collection, ranging from favorite comics characters to many of their own fantastical creations. "Comics are huge in scope, and we feel like they try to say some really profound things about the human struggle," says Jarrod. "These stories are modern day myths and legends for us."

instagram Nestled among the craggy mountains of Norway's northern coast, the Lofoten Islands are some of the most idyllic on earth. Situated on a small group of islands, the fishing village of Skrøva is home to just a few hundred residents, and tourists flock to the area in the summer months seeking retreat from the modern world. The natural arctic surroundings provide the perfect setting for hiking, whale watching and spotting the Aurora Borealis in the clear night skies. Living in Skrøva also allows you to experience weather “at its most raw and wild,” says local Instagrammer Eivind Natvig (@eivindnatvig), who captures breathtaking moments from Skrøva's natural landscapes on Instagram. “Skrøva is somewhere you can experience human vulnerability to the elements.” To view more photos from Skrøva, tap the blue location text above and follow @eivindnatvig.

instagram “I’m often attracted to the more flamboyantly dressed—people living their own opera and acting out their theater on the street.” Damien Frost (@harmonyhalo) is an Australian graphic designer who lives in London, where he makes posters for ballet and opera houses. Though self-described as reserved and conservatively dressed, Damien’s drawn to the eccentric. Every day after work, he searches the city—sometimes for hours—until he has a “random encounter” that produces a portrait of a stranger’s creative style. “I’m attracted to people on the fringes, whether that be on the fringe of fashion or gender or just what is considered mainstream,” Damien says, “but sometimes it might just be a little subtle touch, a flower in the hair, nice makeup or just a general style that the person seems to be inhabiting
very well.” To see more photos of the characters Damien captures, follow @harmonyhalo.

instagram "People on the road always spot this orange classic car. They remember their Soviet past—some of them had this model 20 or 30 years ago," says Russian Instagrammer Georgy Chernyshev (@dobryvolshebnik), who uses the retro vehicle to travel with his girlfriend across Russia and Ukraine. The car is a 1975 Muscovite (Russian "Moskvitch"—"Mосквич"), and Georgy says its distinctiveness helps him meet interesting people in his journeys. He also feels inspired to travel more. “You can feel a special nostalgia traveling in this car which you wouldn't get in a modern car," he says. "I feel its soul, character and history." To see more photos from Georgy’s adventures in his orange car, follow @dobryvolshebnik.
