Sam Falls

Sam Falls work is absolutely amazing. I love it when he uses patterns and repetition like in the above work. I recommend browsing through his other work. It’s quite beautiful.

Sombrero Galaxy

The Sombrero Galaxy, or M 104 NGC 4594 (I dont know what it means either but that is its other name) is “an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo”. I got that from Wikipedia, but really besides this being a cool image, I appreciate that when I look up at the sky at night there is a sombrero watching over me.

California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

These close-up images of the rooftop at the California Academy of Sciences capture the beauty and playfulness of Renzo Piano’s gorgeous building in Golden Gate Park. I grew up visiting that park regularly and have many fond memories of it. While I love LA’s Griffith Park and New York’s Central Park, it is my belief that Golden Gate Park is the most beautiful of our urban parks. These three pictures capture the lushness that makes that space so enticing.

Daguerreotype

I found these two daguerreotypes while skimming around in the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. These two specific images come from the Elihu Vedder papers and were made sometime in the 1840’s. It’s interesting to note how each has disintegrated and aged in over 150+ years.

Jackie Robinson

This image of Jackie Robinson, the first African American to be drafted to the Major Leagues from the Negro Leagues, is pretty infamous but it always moves me to see it. Whomever the photographer is, he caught such an intense moment. That one moment where fans are clenching their fists and screaming, and the players are so focused on making the play.
