The Horsehead Nebula, embedded in the vast and complex Orion Nebula, is seen in this representative-color image from the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii.

As a very visual office, we're always coming across images on the web that intrigue us aesthetically. From design blogs to pinterest to articles about science and the natural world there are infinitely more interesting and amazing photos out there than there used to be with much better access to the richness of the visual world! Some of our favorites this week include an incredible image from NASA (via the New Yorker) of nebula in space that look like things found on earth, a rendering of the Louis Vuitton pop-up shop collaboration with Yayoi Kusama in Soho (via ArtInfo) and these incredible 3D drawings by Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki (via Colossal) made using only his sketchbooks. Feast your eyes and enjoy!
