“When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.” ― John Green, Looking for Alaska

Slow Life by 

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL




National Geographic, March  1977

National Geographic, March  1977




By Silvia Grav, a truly extraordinary set of black & white photographs from the Madrid-based artist, that have such beautiful concepts behind each image. There has been a wave of incredibly talented photographers with a knack for surreal manipulations recently, and these are some of the best I’ve seen.
