Delightful things, part VI

Deep sea life

Whenever I need to remember that the world is full of wonder, my go-to subject is creatures of the sea, particularly the deep sea. It’s estimated that nearly 80% of all life in the world’s oceans has yet to be studied or even discovered. While we’re off exploring Mars and Pluto, there’s a whole alien world right here on our own planet to be explored.

These stunning photos are by Alexander Semenov, a marine biologist who most recently studied life in the Arctic sea. He will be leading the 3-year Aquatilis Expedition to explore the world’s oceans.

Kelly Puissegur

Obviously I have a thing for the absurd and animal-human hybrids, so naturally I love artist Kelly Puissegur.

Hassan Hajjaj

I first ran across Hassan Hajjaj’s work at Houston’s Fotofest a couple of years ago, and it seems like ever since then I see his work everywhere.  I wanted to go to his riad when I was in Marrakech. I tried. I must have been within feet of it, but I never found it. I was always lost in Marrakech.

Texas before 10:00

It’s summertime in Texas. I was about to tell you what that is like, but then I remembered that how it feels has been already been perfectly depicted. Summertime in Texas goes like this:

Basically that’s what happens to you if you go outside between the hours of roughly 10 AM and midnight.

That is a lot of indoor time, and I get a sort of cabin fever I refer to as The Summer Malaise. So to combat this, I’ve taken to getting up early one day of the weekend, getting out the map and looking for roads and trails that are new to me. The trick is it has to be somewhere I can go to and get back from between sunrise and 10 AM.

Here’s the first installment . . .
