Polar Bears and Ice Bergs Captured

Polar Bears, Ice Bergs & Arctic Nature on Photo Prints


When it comes to artwork, there are thousands of choices that homeowners can make their selection from. From the geometric photo prints that have been so popular over recent years to typography decals, every homeowner can ensure that their home is as unique as the individuals living in it.

However, there is one choice of artwork that is sure to delight, amaze, and inspire every taste and preference: photographs of nature and wildlife at their best, polar bears. For those looking to introduce a touch of natural beauty to their home decor, the incredible options available from Anette Mossbacher can make a truly stunning addition to any home.

Polar Bears a Rare Protected Species 

Polar bears are one of the rarest sights in nature for two notable reasons. The first is one of accessibility; due to the chosen habitat of the polar bear, they are simply a sight that few people will have the chance to see. Polar bears tend to only live wild in the remote, polar regions, which few people ever have the chance to visit. Secondly, polar bears are a rare, protected species that are struggling for survival against issues such as hunting and climate change. Due to this combination of an extreme natural habitat and threats to the population, polar bears are primarily only accessible to the general public via photographic imagery.

Polar Bears Photographs as Artwork

What imagery it is, though! Anette Mossbacher has managed to capture truly incredible photographs of polar bears in their natural habitat, and these photographs can be printed and used as artwork. These wonderful photographs were primarily taken in Norway / Svalbard, also called Spitsbergen, where polar bears live naturally among the wild elements they call home. The austere beauty of the landscape juxtaposes perfectly with the soft, gentle appearance of the stars of the photograph, creating a beautiful overall picture that would complement any home.

Arctic Wildlife & Landscape Photo Prints

Speaking of the landscape, the majority of the Arctic wildlife photo prints available feature polar bears in various poses on a background of icebergs. These icebergs may look terrifying to us, but they are the natural home of these incredible creatures, and offer an extra dimension that any photographs of polar bears taken in zoo locations cannot hope to replicate. This is nature at its very best, unspoilt an wild, and Anette’s photographs have preserved these moments in time.

There are a range of photo prints to discover, from close up photographs that primarily focus on the bear itself to more distant photographs that take in the entire landscape. Photo prints are also available that include the moon in the photograph; helping to bring together another natural element in an photograph that will draw gasps of admiration from anyone who sees it. The keen eye of an experienced photographer such as Mossbacher is able to pick out the moments that should be preserved in time, allowing for a wonderful range that is only possible thanks to the expertise of the person behind the lens.

Giraffes And Sustainable Customized Leather Bags

What have Giraffes and sustainable customized leather bags in common?


You wonder? Me too 🙂 I might should start at the beginning; Sitting in the airplane in Tokyo after the Japan winter photo tour this year. The seat beside me was still free when no more person entered the airplane. Me, a happy person, of course, thinking that I could spread myself on 2 seats for 13 hours! Well, this was my thought until a woman came down the aisle! She stopped beside me and started talking in French with me. FRENCH, “hello I do not speak French!” So I answered in Mandarin, because I’m better at Mandarin than I am at speaking French. Her customized leather handbag, over her shoulder, jumped into my eyes right away. Like a great picture should do on the dot, within the first 1-3 seconds. Great yellow accompanied with marvellous red. We had a small chat in English, which swopped into German after 15min. This chat was pulled into a long conversation of the length of a 13 hour flight, Tokyo > Zurich! Arrived in Zurich, we swopped email addresses & phone numbers, since we both said, that we never had so much fun with a neighbour in an aircraft chatting to. I flew often in my life, but this encounter in 11000 meters altitude was the most extraordinary!

But What Has This All To Do With Giraffes And Sustainable Customized Leather Bags And Accessories?

2 month later I have met her again, Karen Olivo. She told me all about her new brand Luc8k. Her high end designers and sustainable leather she uses for her custom handmade leather bags. Sustainable leather; the leather is mineral tanned and vegetable re-tanned. There are sustainable tanneries, which do drum dyeing the leather. Luc8k is using one of them here in Europe for it’s customized leather bags and accessories. The customers can chose their colors of the leather, single or bi-color, add their lucky numbers to their handcrafted bespoke bag logo, et voila. Adding lucky numbers in the logo will make the customized leather bags and accessories unique. The exclusive personalised leather bags are for women and men. On top, I do love the inside fabric of the bags, it is waterproof. Create your own leather bag, reversible leather belt or even duffle yourself, go to Luc8k online store. There comes Sophie, the mascot of Luc8k, as the Forbes magazine describes her.

The Idea Of LUC8K

to combine a Giraffe with Luc8k for customized leather bags and accessories came from Karen. She was looking through my wildlife galleries, asking, if it would be possible to insert a Giraffe with a leather bag into another photograph. Since we all know, Adobe Photoshop has endless tools! But before all that, I took photographs of her leather bags in different ways. We decided to do something different. So two brains do brainstorming, besides chasing Karen up on a tree with a leather Tote bag barefoot. I remember the look she gave me, when I asked her to climb up this huge tree, lolololol. Yes, my creative ideas go sometimes a bit wild! Besides that, I really do enjoy to combine Luc8k with nature photography, long exposure ideas, a great new challenge to enjoy.

Karen managed to climb this high tree with one of the customised bags from LUC8K. Well done Karen 🙂

By now we made quite a powerfull gallery of customized leather bags, leather belts, the also customized weekender duffles, reversible leather belts or cardholders. From long exposure photographs taken at the Zurich Airport and Airport train station over to Geneva to lake Neuchatel. Next destination will be the bush of Botswana. This is my next trip with a dear photographer friend, Carole Deschuymere, and yes 1-2 customized leather bags will accompany us.Geeeeez, I should not forget, even a customized leather wallet is available!

Before I forget, Luc8k’s lucky number is the 8, because when you turn it on the side it stands for infinity. Sounds very much familiar with photography, doesn’t it? What is beyond f/8? My lucky number is 8 and today I post on the 8th. VOILA!
