Cocoons

There was a recent Radiolab podcast called Black Box that talked about cocoons – worth a listen if you’re interested in learning some really cool stuff about this transformation. Very cool stuff. These cocoons live at the Smithsonian in Washington DC.

Went for a run

finish_line

I typically keep running related blog posts on my running blog, but I do also take pictures while I’m running from time to time. Pull out the phone and snap away, essentially. This one shows a pretty significant milestone for me. That covered bridge at the end of the road, just about a tenth of […]

Where y’all from?

pins_on_a_map

You know how some tourist spots have a map and invite people to pin where they’re from? This one ran out of pins… so if you look closely, you’ll see pin-holes in the map where people took someone else’s pin and moved it to their home tow. So how about it? Where are YOU from? […]

Autumn Rhythm, Number 30 (1950), Jackson Pollack No photo ever does a Pollack justice. I’m almost embarrassed to post this. Really – just go to New York and see it for yourself. It’s at The Met.  

Cat Tail, Cat

Went to one of the wetlands near my house. Managed to capture both a cat’s tail… and a cat.    

Stump Jumpin’

Jumping

A long time ago, I hosted a guest post that explained how to create panoramas in Photoshop. More recently, on a trip to New York City, I saw this guy jumping from lamp to lamp. There were probably 70 or so wrapping around the building, and he made it all the way from one end […]
