Purple paradise: Those who like the color purple now have a must-see destination to put on their wish lists: Banwol Island and Parkji Island in Sinan-gun, South Jeolla Province, South Korea. Authorities on these islands have planted lavender fields and various trees with purple flowers, and they are developing an infrastructure painted with purple. The two islands are connected via a purple footbridge, and some of the roads have been splashed with violet paint. Homeowners have even joined the action by painting their houses various shades of this vibrant color.

Pen art: Many people keep a stash of ballpoint pens on hand for writing notes or letters. But for Ukrainian artist Andrey Poletaev, the ballpoint pen is his paintbrush. Poletaev is an artist who creates drawings using these pens, and his work looks almost like black-and-white photographs. They are intricate and can take hundreds of hours to finish. He layers ink in some places, and lightly covers other areas to create many shades. He creates street scenes, portraits, animals, and landscapes using old techniques and creating many of his own.

Photo-crazy: A photographer in India really loves his craft and likes to let the world know it. Ravi Hongal, from Belgaum, Karnataka, has been taking photos since he was a child, and today he has his own studio. To show off his obsession, he built his three-story home using a camera-themed style. A gigantic replica of a camera lens and flash are mounted on the wall above the front door. What appears to be a length of film hangs down the side of the house. But Hongal didn’t stop there in expressing his passion for cameras. He named his sons after well-known camera brands: Canon, Nikon, and Epson.

Kidding aside: Kris Hedstrom of Odessa, Florida (U.S.), thinks she had the wool pulled over her eyes when the Nigerian dwarf goats she purchased couldn’t be registered as pedigrees. The goats – Bella, Gigi, Rosie, Zelda, and Margoat – came from neighbour Heather Dayner’s farm. When Hedstrom tried to register the animals, she was turned away because Dayner was not an active member of the American Dairy Goat Association. Not to be deterred, Hedstrom filed a lawsuit asking Dayner to pay for a paternity test on the goats.
