Located among the lapping waves and pelicans in Redondo Beach, California is one of South Bay’s best kept dining secrets. Lined with palm trees and overlooking a quiet stretch of the marina, Baleen, named for a type of whale, feels miles apart from the bustle of Los Angeles, but chic enough to be a major player on the restaurant scene.

I’m completely awestruck by New York sculptress Tara Donovan’s beautiful works of art. Looking at her organic sculptural forms, you can see why she was recently selected for the prestigious MacArthur Foundation ‘genius’ grant. Tara is known for creating unique forms out of ordinary objects like tape, paper plates, pencils, Styrofoam cups and much more. The mundane nature of her materials completely vanish into her otherworldly sculptures revealing instead curious shapes and fascinating textures.

These magical photos of jellyfish were snapped by Russian biologist and sea life photographer Alexander Semenov. Having studied Zoology (with an emphasis on squid brains!), not only are his jellyfish photos phenomenal, but his photography conjures up all kinds of dreams of the sea.
