Really beautiful images in the portfolio of photographer David Potes.

A little more about him from his site:
“Born in San Diego, California and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, David Potes has always been committed to the arts and photography. In 2001, after many years of producing small, limited edition zines, David, his brother Ray Potes and friend Stefan Simikich began publishing a quarterly black and white photography magazine called Hamburger Eyes. Focused primarily on documentary street photography, the magazine has enjoyed exponential success throughout the years and most recently has been published into a book by PowerHouse Books.

David’s primary aesthetic is in documentary photography, focusing on people and landscapes. However, with his background in self-publishing, he strives to move within multiple genres of the medium. Now living and working in New York City, David has become involved in both the commercial and fine art photography community. As a freelance photographer, production coordinator and photography assistant in both fashion and product photography, he has had the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients as well as some of the top photographers in the city.”

Nice work for motion by Propelo. Also good work across other mediums. Chances are you have seen their motion work somewhere before.

I was lucky enough to just kind of stumble upon the Electrik Suicide today and it made my day. There is a wealth of sheer awesomeness in his Flickr portfolio. And by sheer, I mean sharp like the edge of a razor blade ready to scarify your shoulder with a kick ass design. Are you picking up what I am laying down here?

Here is the 411 on Electrik Suicide:
“Electrik Suicide is Ronald Ashburn,
a Multidisciplinary Designer & Artist
based in Southern California.”

Be sure to visit his profile page on his Flickr account because he has a number of locations to visit on the world wide internets.
