my new favorite series of photos…
Look where i’ve been in the last few months
a bunch of the plein air sketches I was working on during my Utah trip! A week drawing rocks, getting mistaken for a ranger twice- pretty ideal.
At TEDxYouth@Manchester, genetics researcher Dan Davis introduces the audience to compatibility genes — key players in our immune system’s functioning, and the reason why it’s so difficult to transplant organs from person to person: one’s compatibility genes must match another’s for a transplant to take.
(Images from Davis’s talk, Drew Berry’s animations, and the TED-Ed lessons A needle in countless haystacks: Finding habitable worlds - Ariel Anbar and How we conquered the deadly smallpox virus - Simona Zompi)

Ive seen this before re blogging so I dont lose it again.
A bunch of beautiful 5X5 prints that I love. Only 15 each! I may have to get a few.

“For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favour, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence.”
- Yohji Yamamoto
wow, just… wow

I need you like water in my lungs
Dating can be complicated when you are a shark
Yesterday a girl asked me out
While I was riding on the bus
Go and grab a coffee sometime
Just the two of us
I must say I was tempted
I guess it would have been a lark
But I’m an honest guy
So I told her I’m a shark
“I know you’ve been won over
By my dark eyes and white teeth,
But the truth my dear:
There’s another row hiding underneath.
You seem to have not noticed
The fin upon my back,
And if you ever met my family
There’s a good chance they’d attack.
I can tell that you adore me
And I really feel the same,
But deep down in my cartilage
I know I’d only cause you pain.
You may think me coldblooded
But I think it’s for the best.
I’d only break your heart
And probably tear apart the rest”
She drew away from me and I could tell
She didn’t understand
The poor girl had probably never seen
A shark who lived on land.
I said “I’m sorry”, brushed her hair back,
And “I hope we can stay friends”
But it’s probably for the best that
I never saw her again.
