Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
This Is the Most Detailed Image of the Universe Ever Captured
NASA has just published the most detailed view of the Universe ever taken. It’s called the Extreme Deep Field—or XDF for short. It took ten years of Hubble Space Telescope photographs to make it and it shows some the oldest galaxies ever observed by humans, going 13.2 billion years back in time.
It’s a mindblowing, extremely humbling view. Not only for what it shows, but for what it doesn’t show. While this image contains about 5,500 galaxies, it only displays a tiny part of the sky, a ridiculously small slice of the Universe.
Happy 177th birthday, Chicago! Be careful with all of those candles, we don’t need another fire…

I feel like i live in a lava lamp, but instead of wax and oil it’s just real lava and i’m dead.
"Home… is really like a work-in-progress; A project to which they’re constantly adding upgrades, improvements, corrections"- Pico Iyer
A TED talk, featuring writer Pico Iyer: “Where is home?”
This lecture articulates exactly what the foundations for starting this blog were. He talks about the notion of ‘home’, and what it means in a world developing in the face of globalisation.
Get comfortable- You’ve got 15 minutes of global pondering coming your way…
Drinking problems in young people are often written off as a symptom of being in your twenties. I have been sober for almost seven months now, and having also just turned 21, this often seems like an act of futility. In this piece, I attempt to visually communicate my struggles and frustrations with sobriety.

It’s not a good idea to drive your sports car around quiet Belgian streets at eight in the morning, because you might end up hitting a dog running towards its owner & breaking his entire spine. This dog was loved & cared for by my parents/family, and because of some selfish, fast-driving-morning motherfucker, we lost our really great companion, far too early in his life. Drive your car all over as fast as you want, your penis won’t get any bigger, you friend-stealing waste of space asshole. This is my last photograph of Otago, I took it last month.
