    Inside the Woodworker’s Workshop with @mokkouyamagen

    For more photos and videos from Genki’s workshop, follow @mokkouyamagen on Instagram.

    “The beautiful texture and grain of wood cannot be made by human hands,” says woodworker Genki Nishiyama (@mokkouyamagen) of Yokohama, Japan. Genki, who worked at a furniture factory for nearly 10 years, turned a worn-down warehouse into his own workshop to become an independent furniture maker and delve deeper into the craft.

    “Solid wood continues to expand and contract with humidity, even after they are made into furniture,” Genki explains of the challenges he faces. “In a country like Japan where the four seasons bring rapid changes in the atmosphere, you really have to anticipate the arching movements of the wood in order to prevent the furniture from breaking.”

    On Instagram, Genki likes to document not only the end products but also the tools and environment inside the workshop. “The heart and artistry of many people go into a product when it’s being made, and I think people will enjoy exploring that creation process.”

    Writing Home with @ledavolli

    For more photos from Leticia, follow @ledavolli on Instagram.

    The experience of living abroad has been a magical one for Brazil Instagrammer Leticia Davolli (@ledavolli), who has called Toronto home for the last five years. “All of a sudden, you see the world through the eyes of a foreigner,” she says. “You never belong to a single place again.”

    Leticia strives to preserve her foreigner’s perspective on the city while still maintaining ties to her roots back home. “I try to maintain the perspective of a newcomer in Toronto by really exploring each corner, sidewalk and coffee shop through the lens of my phone. When I first moved to Toronto, I created the blog Para Minha Mãe, translating to “For My Mother,” as a way to share my experiences in Toronto with my mom. I wanted to share the cool parts of the city that were not mentioned in most city guides. After a while, the blog naturally developed a wider audience and people started writing in and asking me for city recommendations.”

    Leticia is especially fascinated by Toronto’s independent café scene. “People gather there to find inspiration and connect with others,” she says. “My mother also loves coffee shops. Being in cafés is a way to reconnect with my essence and origins.”

    Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPstreetstyle

    Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

    The goal this weekend is to break out of your comfort zone and capture the style of a passerby in public, whether it’s punk, preppy or anywhere in-between. Some tips to get you started:

    • Before you start shooting, figure out your location and think about the lighting so you can quickly position yourself when it comes time to take the photo.
    • Try starting by complimenting a person on their style. Strike up a conversation and be respectful—if they say “no,” thank them and seek out someone else.
    • If you talk to the person you’ve photographed, don’t forget to ask if they’re on Instagram. If they are, tag them so they can see the result!

    For more tips and insights, check out this video with tips from the Sartorialist (@thesartorialist).

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

    Discovering Kazan’s Kul Sharif, One of Europe’s Largest Mosques

    To view more photos and videos of this mosque in Kazan, Russia, browse the Kul Sharif location page.

    Shimmering like a blue and white jewel, the rebuilt Kul Sharif mosque (Кул-Шариф) is the Islamic heart of the Russian city of Kazan. Its striking architectural features include four towering minarets, marble and granite exterior facades, alabaster carvings, stained glass windows and a central dome inspired by the ancient crown worn by Kazan khans. With a capacity to accommodate 1,500 worshippers within and 10,000 more outside on the two adjacent pavilions, Kul Sharif is one of Europe’s largest mosques.

    Despite its recent completion in 2005, the mosque has a long history. The original Kul Sharif mosque was a cornerstone of the city’s civic and religious activity in the 16th century until it was destroyed in 1552 during the conquests of Ivan the Terrible. Today, the mosque stands as an important symbol for the city’s Islamic past and for the region’s vision as a peaceful home for its multiethnic populations.

    Capturing a Hauntingly Beautiful Tugboat Graveyard

    For more photos and videos from the Tugboat Graveyard, explore the Tugboat Graveyard - Staten Island location page.

    The scuttled remains of tugboats, ferries and other maritime vessels rest peacefully in shallow water off the shores of Staten Island in New York City.

    The rusting hulks, decrepit frames, creaks and bumps in the Witte Marine Equipment Company scrap yard, known as the “Tugboat Graveyard,” contribute to a hauntingly beautiful industrial landscape hidden in plain sight.

    Instagrammers looking to make an off-the-beaten-path field trip just outside of the city center can capture eerie photos of light filtering through decaying structures, jagged reflections and the occasional geese and other wildlife picking their way along the murky shore.

    Scenes from Small-Town Uganda with @sarahgenelle

    For a look at everyday life on a coffee farm in Western Uganda, follow @sarahgenelle.

    Living and working on a coffee farm nestled in the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains in Uganda is just the latest stop in the nomadic life of Sarah Castagnola (@sarahgenelle).

    Sarah’s parents taught at international schools, which meant relocating the family to a different country every few years. “When I moved to Oregon for university I was exited to put down roots,” she explains. “However, it was only a matter of time before I yearned to travel again.”

    Sarah’s studies and work in micro-finance have taken her across the globe, and, in April of 2013, she accepted a Peace Corps assignment in the small Ugandan village of Kyarumba. Living and working in Uganda often means it’s easier to share a photo on Instagram than it is to find running water or electricity. “This is the paradox of living in a developing country,” Sarah says. “Cellphones are ubiquitous, however women and children spend hours each day fetching water.”

    Sarah, who plans to continue traveling after the Peace Corps, hopes her photos educate and inspire: “Opportunities happen when you take risks and follow your passion.”

    Eerie, beautiful, captivating images of sea urchins mating and being born (that little triangle guy is a baby sea urchin).

    These are a glimpse of how life begins in the deep ocean — and there’s a lot of life down there. The oceans provide about 190 times as much living space as every other space on Earth — soil, air and fresh water — put together. A vast array of amazing creatures live in the depths of this watery world. Squid, jellyfish, and plankton are just a few of our favorites (all shown as tiny babies in that last gif).

    Exploring Vietnam’s Paradise Cave (Động Thiên Đường)

    For more photos and videos from Paradise Cave, browse the #ParadiseCave hashtag and explore the Động Thiên Đường (Paradise Cave) location page.

    500km (310 miles) south of Hanoi in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, a small portion of a beautiful cave opened in 2011 and now attracts local and visiting Instagrammers to capture what’s inside. Paradise Cave (Động Thiên Đường) is part of cave system that extends for 31km (19 miles), making it one of the longest dry caves in the world. Though originally discovered by a local in 2005, the cave was later explored in full by the British Cave Research Association. The explorers also gave the cave its name after being impressed by the extraordinary limestone formations with towering stalactites and stalagmites that they found inside.
