I am sharing this photo because I have had 11 male goldfinches at our feeder this week – at one time! (and I can count only three females – what a ratio!)
I like this photo because of all it doesn’t say.
Who is this person with these lovely decorated feet? Is a women or a man? What else if the person wearing? (I’d really like to know that one.) Why are they wearing these things? All I know is that it is the feet of Kathivanoor Veeran Theyyam from Kannur, Kerala, India, taken in 2012
Joshi Daniel, who took this picture, doesn’t say much about his photographs, so we are left to wonder.
This is time lapse photography by Matt Molloy via hovercraftdoggy. If you click on the hovercraft link, you can see more of the same. But I like this one best – the color is wonderful.
Man, this Friday snuck up on me. Where have I been for the last seven days? Oh well.
Found this image on Dmitrii Lazine’s blog of travel photography. It’s of a bridge with the longest name I have every heard: Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. Apparently Leonard was a Jewish-American religious and civil right leader in the Boston area. Very cool bridge. Leonard’s family should be proud. Leonard died in 1999.
I like this image. It is of a laborer in the Chala Market in Trivandrum, India. He doesn’t look very happy at the moment, and sometimes we just feel like that. It’s not always a sunny day. Things aren’t always going well. Sometimes we don’t want our picture taken… I also have a soft spot for black and white images, and this one is so crisp, so clean – nothing else distracting you from his face. Nice job Joshi!
I thought with the recent cruse ship debacle those of you who have never been on a cruse ship or even seen one, such as my motion-sickness self, might like to see what one of these babies looks like. The ship next to it being guided by the tug is a cargo ship. It pales size wise in comparison to that floating island. And that is not even the biggest one. The Largest cruse ship (Allure of the Seas owned by the Royal Caribbean line) in the world as also docked at the Fort Lauderdale harbor that day but we didn’t get as close to that one as we did to this one. They are so big they look like they should just tip over. I can see why a boat this big would start to smell if the bathrooms (all gazillion of them) did not function. Sign me up!
If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know I like flowers. With snow flying and the sky white-gray, I had to share this photograph by Jeffery Foltice from his photonatureblog. Thanks for the taste of summer, Jeffery!
Isn’t this amazing. It is actually a composite of 13 images (taken on the same evening). I generally like “real” – not photo shopped – images, but this one took Marc 4 days cold and late, late nights to get create this image and it is really quite beautiful, so I have to put aside my prejudice and just enjoy the artistry. It was taken in the Yukon, Canada and is the Tombstone Range. The ice formation alone is amazing but with the aurora borealis on top of it. It must have been inspiring being there.
