Sometimes when life gets too busy you just need to take a week off, travel, rest and reconnect. So I headed out to the west coast, drank lots of coffee, wandered through record stores and book shops, went on some hiking adventures and experienced life in some pretty awesome cities.

Castle Meur: The House Between The Rocks | Via

Castel Meur, also known as La Maison du Gouffre or “the house between the rocks”, is a charming cottage wedged between two huge jagged rocks that has been drawing tourists to the otherwise quiet little village of Plougrescant, located in the department of Côtes-d’Armor in the region of Brittany, in France, since the 19th century.

The house has her back turned towards the sea, against which her owner sought to protect her by building the house in a cradle between the two rocks to shield her from the violent storms that frequent this place. The tiny house was built in 1861, at a time when building permits did not exist, where anyone could build at will. After the death of her original owner, Castel Meur served as the second home to the descendant’s family who lived here sporadically. The current occupant, the granddaughter of the first master of the house, has lived here since 2004 after selling her business in America and returning back to her land.

Ellen Jantzen was born and raised in St. Louis Missouri. Her first college degree was in graphic arts; later emphasizing fine art. In 1992, after a move to Los Angeles California, she graduated FIDM (the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) with an advanced degree in fashion. She worked for several years at Mattel Toy Company as a senior project designer, but became disillusioned with the corporate world and longed for a more creative outlet. Having been trained in computer design while at Mattel, she set about to learn Photoshop.

As digital technology advanced and cameras were producing excellent resolution, she found her perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in her current explorations in photo inspired art using both a camera to capture images and a computer to alter and manipulate the pieces.
