Hello, world! it’s time for a frisky dose of #weeklyfluff. meet gizmo — one of the kitties who got a second chance at finding a fur-ever home thanks to shelia (@love2foster). 😻 gizmo lives with a number of rescued brothers and sisters in oregon and (as you can see!) doesn’t give up easily. follow @love2foster to ensure constant cat power in your feed.

“all labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” —dr. martin luther king jr. this is one of artist and writer kadir nelson’s (@kadirnelson) favorite quotes from the american civil rights leader, whose birthday is celebrated on january 16. “i admire dr. king’s faith in his beliefs and willingness to demonstrate the powerful example of intelligence, spiritual tenacity and hard work,” says kadir, who is based in los angeles. “individuals like dr. king, who embrace their inner hero, are recurring subjects in my work. he, and all of those who fought against social injustice, paved a way for creative people like myself who stand on their shoulders — and are now free to express ourselves creatively in fields that were not as open as they are today.” #mlkday art by @kadirnelson for @newyorkermag

Meet shu (@shuthebear): an avid explorer — who happens to be a stuffed bear. he’s adventured to places like vietnam, malaysia and iceland, but before he met manel mora, he was looking at the world through the display window of a gift shop in spain. “he likes to feel a part of the place that welcomes him,” says manel, who helps shu share his travel stories. “when tourists and locals see a teddy bear posing for the camera, everyone takes out their cameras, and amidst laughter, they ask about the photo session.” discover more stories from the spanish-speaking community on @instagrames. photo by @shuthebear

We owe this captivating #boomerangoftheweek to one big rock and fernando carreras’ (@fernycarreras) creativity. “temperatures in areas of the mountains in cuenca have been down to -13 c [9 f], so many lakes were frozen,” explains fernando, who was out taking photos, videos and boomerangs for his ecotourism company. #boomerang by @fernycarreras

Weekend hashtag project: #whpfollowthelight the goal this weekend is to make photos and videos inspired by the diverse qualities of light — like this one by @xenichez. here’s how to get started: play around with different ways light can draw attention to a figure or action — such as a golden halo around a single person or multiple sources of light, adding depth to a scene. look for situations that are transformed by the position of the sun, like a tree-lined promenade that sings at sunset. don’t shy away from shooting at night, when beams of light can become subjects in their own right. for example: car headlights that illuminate falling snow. project rules: please add the #whpfollowthelight hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. if you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week. featured photo by @xenichez
