Leaves Behaving Badly
Around where I live, the leaves are flying off trees like they’re going out of style. Therefore, head over to the Christoph Niemann’s Abstract Sunday Blog at the NYT and catch the leaves before they’re gone! Be sure to check out the entire gallery.
Beside those Yoda Tree and Walbolt, here is my favorite:
is it even for real? too good.
“Starting at Kalapana, Hawaii I walked for two hours right to the place on the coast where active lava flows were touching the ocean.
I was overwhelmed about the scene: Hot air touched my face as I stood at the edge of the cliff, steam drifted away by the strong wind, thunders in my ears as the waves crushed on the melted stones and water fought with fire.
I stood and watched the lava flows started to glow as it became darker. I wanted to express what happened there. All four elements – water, fire, air and earth came together at that point to show how they’re playing the game. — Jennifer Vahlbruch
“water, fire, air and earth came together” … hingga akhirnya negara api pun menyerang. *eh
this kind of fact always terrifies me.
I love this so much.
This, and Kings of Convenience’s will make a perfect vacation.

They sprout out of the cement, growing where they shouldn’t.
Rising up patiently with exemplary will and dignity.
Without lineage, wild, unclassifiable by botanists.
i miss the smell of a new book. i miss the time where there’s a wonderful thing happens in my head while i’m laying on my bed.
Cinemagraphs by Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg
By now, as tumblr users, we are fully aware of Cinemagraphs. It was interesting for me to watch this new form of GIF’s emerge from tumblr and it was one of the first great things I discovered when I joined just over a year ago. I really dislike GIFs, and these simplistic subtle animations gave me hope for what I considered to be the scourge of tumblr. To show my appreciation I thought I’d pick a few of my favourites that were made by the original creators of the cinemagraph, Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg.
