¿Y si todo lo que te rodea fuera mucho más de lo que ves?

Pasa el tiempo y la memoria se hace perversamente olvidadiza. Así son las cosas. Imagínate, por ejemplo, que algo te gusta mucho, llama poderosamente tu atención, y decides publicarlo porque “si le pones un poco de #creatividad, el mundo se ve mejor“. Supón que un año y medio más tarde te vuelves a topar con lo mismo y piensas: “sí, #estoesphusions” sin recordar precisamente eso, que ya lo fue. Maldita memoria. Maldito olvido

Lo que pasa es que cuando una cosa te gusta y tras tanto tiempo te sigue gustando, quiere decir que no es que sea buena, es que es muy buena. Así que hoy, una vez más (sí, algo parecido ya me pasó con Diego Cusano, en su día), un artista repite en Phusions y lo hace por la puerta grande. Se trata de Rich McCor, este fantástico fotógrafo que inmortaliza algunos de los lugares más emblemáticos del planeta convirtiéndolos en algo muy diferente usando, tan sólo, una silueta negra recortada en una hoja de papel.

@paperboyo te invita a un viaje en el que nada de lo que has visto es, realmente, lo que tú pensabas, sino mucho más. Un viaje en el que cualquier edificio, cualquier puente, cualquier lugar (por remoto que sea), puede tener una historia tan cautivadora como tu imaginación sea capaz de construir.

Enjoy!

Back in 2012 this was the scene of one of the most famous escapes in Japanese history. The fugitive – known only as 337 – scaled up a sheer rock wall, miraculously squeezed through a barbed wire fence, swam out into Tokyo Bay and managed to remain in the water for weeks eluding capture. Daily searches were conducted and on one occasion he was spotted resting near an estuary but by the time the Japanese coastguard arrived, 337 was gone. It took eighty-two days in total until the authorities finally managed to capture him. By the time they returned him here to Tokyo Sea Life Park, he had become a local celebrity. As you may have guessed 337 was a Penguin. True Story #TokyoTokyo @TokyoTokyoOldMeetsNew #TokyoSeaLifePark #ad

I’ve teamed up with @surface_uk again to make some noise (in this case jangly banjo noise) about the release of the new Matte Black Surface Pro 6. I'd like to pretend it's a bespoke design inspired by my cut-outs, but the reality is it’s available in matte black to everyone. Anyway it seemed vaguely appropriate to head somewhere with black in the name to use the device, so here's a shot from Blackpool Beach. I was there over the weekend and managed to catch some pretty amazing sunrises #anythingbutordinary I’m going to be adding my own touch to some of your photos with the Matte Black Surface Pro 6 today. Check out my latest insta story if you want me to “paperboyo” one of your photos.

I'm struggling with a caption about this building so instead I'll tell you about the Ninja Restaurant I went to after I took this photo. Yup-a Ninja Restaurant. As soon as I walked in the un-assuming entrance things got weird; I was greeted by a Ninja who jumped out of no-where (if you can call that a greeting). He then hurried me underground through a labyrinth of hidden doors, waterfalls and over a bridge that appeared & then disappeared (at which point I wondered if it was Richard O' Brien under the Ninja outfit because it was very Crystal Maze like). Anyway eventually we end up in a mini courtyard and this is where I'm seated. Richard O'Brien bows, leaves and then pretty much immediately returns with a black cocktail (which was surprisingly delicious) & suggests the Tasting Menu. I decide it's probably best not to disagree with a Ninja (and I've always liked Richard O'Brien) so I agree with his suggestion. I think there were nine dishes and each one was served with a flourish- something was either set on fire, cut with a sword, floating on dry ice or was decorated lavishly (and of course Richard O'Brien is on hand to refill your mysterious black cocktail throughout the night). Everyone also gets a visit from the Master Ninja but I won't ruin the surprise. It was a fun night- I can totally recommend it if you're in Tokyo- the restaurant is called Ninja Akasaka (Sorry to those that won't get the Richard O'Brien reference) #TokyoTokyo @tokyotokyooldmeetsnew #SponsoredPost #DentsuBuilding

Right in the heart of Shinjuku there's a massive Penguin- well I see it as a Penguin but it's meant to look like a Cocoon. It's Mode Gakuen's vertical university campus and the design was inspired around the concept of an incubator like space where students grow, transform and then flutter off into the world (metaphorically I'm guessing…unless they're being taught some kinda revolutionary flying technique in class. Imagine that on graduation day, instead of throwing their caps in the air they throw themselves in the air!) I digress. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah- Cool building, cool concept, cool design but just once can someone, somewhere please build a massive Penguin. K'Thanks. Bye #TokyoTokyo @tokyotokyooldmeetsnew #SponsoredPost #ModeGakuenCocoonTower

Towards the end of last year I went over to Education City which is kind of like a futuristic, gigantic university campus. It's home to some exciting tech, medicine & research hubs and they've done a pretty sweet job with the architecture here, which I guess is why I was invited over because it's an architecture fan's playground. There's a plethora (you might be able to tell I got "word a day" calendar for Christmas) of different styles & quirky buildings, so over my next few images I'll be your guide around campus – starting here at the @weillcornellqatar lecture hall (or egg as I see it) just infront of Rem Koolhaas' amazing @qatarnationallibrary #EducationCity @Qatarfoundation #SponsoredPost
