I found this flock of birds this morning on the interweb, circling the skies and impersonating a storm cloud, and it recalled my love for Richard Barnes‘ Murmur Series.
So here are a selection. There’s nothing quite like this work, I find it mesmerizing.
In addition, I thought I’d add some Mars shots from The Big Picture. Because nature is blowing my mind today.
Here’s a description:
“ Martian landscapes
Since 2006, NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting Mars, currently circling approximately 300 km (187 mi) above the Martian surface. On board the MRO is HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera, which has been photographing the planet for several years now at resolutions as fine as mere inches per pixel. Collected here is a group of images from HiRISE over the past few years, in either false color or grayscale, showing intricate details of landscapes both familiar and alien, from the surface of our neighboring planet, Mars. I invite you to take your time looking through these, imagining the settings – very cold, dry and distant, yet real.”
I do not know how the below picture is not an abstract painting/esoteric tattoo. Things confuse me. Maybe Google Mars can clear this up for me. GOOGLE MARS!
The future continues to be now.
