Birthday Nebula

This nebula was featured as the Astronomy Photo Of the Day on my birthday this past year and I think that's pretty cool.

Living in California for 3 months was definitely one of the coolest things I did this year. Here are some photos from a trip I took to Big Sur this past July. I grew up on the east coast so I was especially fascinated by the landscape along the coastline.

I love this photo collage composed of 84 individual images of this 300-foot redwood tree. It's one of National Geographic's top ten photos of the year, naturally.

I'm still hell-bent on getting a tattoo of some paisley design; lately, I've been looking at more complex henna tattoos on flickr for inspiration. When the time comes, I'll definitely get something much simpler but I can't help but be inspired by the shapes and designs used in henna.

Snow berry

I'm in the Pacific Northwest for the rest of the year and the weather here has been pretty mild. It just doesn't feel like winter! For that reason alone I'm loving this gorgeous photo:

These glasses, when filled, reveal whatever drink they contain! Awesome.

Shoe Hunt '09

It continues. I have very few pairs of casual sneakers that I can wear with everything. My go-to pair of Converse are on their last leg, completely marred by rips in the canvas body. So I need a new pair of everyday shoes and these adidas are a serious contender. I love how flat the soles are, and the stripes on the lining are just the icing on the cake.

Light Graffiti

While trolling the internet yesterday on a wholly undeserved study break, I came across these photos, which were taken using a single long exposure. Aren't they captivating? Much more so than my Chemistry notes, at least..
I'd recommend going to the Daily Mail site to view them larger.

Love these photos by James Griffioen, for sale on 20x200.

I'm not sure which pair of TOMS I should get. I'm all for busy patterns and jewel tones but something a little more simple might be more practical.
