Ernst Haeckel

September 11th, 2014

I’m a sucker for scientific illustrations, especially the ones that are good. The other day I ran across the biological illustrations of Ernst Haeckel published in the book Kunstformen der Natur. These illustrations are truly a work of art. I’ve compiled the illustrations from the book for your easy viewing pleasure. Do your eyes a favor and peruse through the scans.

I Take Photos

August 20th, 2014

I take photos to remember. Life speeds up with alacrity, yet my memory does not. The photographic moments of the past that seemed so insignificant and trivial become the key that unlocks memories of the past. A plate of food, a sunrise, a smile, are all piled deep with layers of surrounding memories that I never want to forget.

I take photos to forget. Regret and mistakes plague my life and seem to be etched in my memory permanently. The moments that a photo captures are capable of erasing those failures and replacing them with times I forget to remember.
