SUPER MOON!: The moon at the closest point in its orbit of earth. This, from NASA’s site: “The best time to look is when the Moon is near the horizon. For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects.” No [...]
I wonder what the family photo that astronaut Charlie Duke left on the surface of the moon during Apollo 16 in April 1972 looks like now? It was left in low gravity, no wind, left in plastic… Is it sun bleached white paper? Or is it perfectly preserved? This is a before and after series [...]

Here’s something I should be thinking about as I try and put some pictures I took into story format: “…correlated enough to create a pattern but chaotic enough to be interesting.” That is what the Gilden Lab at UTexas Austin has to say about Fractal Structure and Attention. Their site was brought to my attention [...]
