Locked Down Looking Up

Doris Mitsch’s Locked Down Looking Up series is pure delight. It started as a series of images made over time from a fixed point—outside her front door—during the San Francisco Bay Area’s lockdown to slow the spread of Covid-19. Multiple shots were combined to show the flight trails of birds, insects, and bats. While most everything in her life came to a standstill, up in the air, there was still a lot going on. Later, when she started to be able to move around a little more, she began to explore other locations. Click through here to see these images larger.

Architecture in Music

My heart can barely handle the awesomeness that is this photo series titled Architecture in Music by Charles Brooks. What would it feel like to live inside your musical instrument?

Designs from Kimono Pattern Books (ca. 1902). Delightful.

Heritage Apples

Tom Brown has spent most of his retirement tracking down all-but-extinct apple varieties that once thrived throughout Appalachia, US. I want to be like Tom when I grow up.
