Briefly returning to tumblr to post a thing I made.

check it out at my society6, where I’ve recently updated with some new stuff!

So I made a Society6 if anyone’s interested in looking at that! I’m updating it as I write this so more stuff should be popping up soon.

Pillows and iPhone cases and cards and prints, oh my.

White House photographer Pete Souza:

This is one of those rare instances where my presence indirectly became a part of this reaction from those pictured in the photograph. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had just accidentally dropped all of her briefing papers onto the Oval Office rug and she, the President and Vice President all reacted in a way that indicated that surely I wouldn’t get a photo of that to embarrass her. 


reblogging again for the explanation

The winners of the ninth annual Olympus Bioscapes Digital Imaging Competition have been announced and they’re as good as you would expect given that they were selected from from nearly 2,000 entries from 62 countries. 

This year’s winner is by Ralph Grimm, a teacher from Australia who made this video of a colony of microscopic rotifers from a lily pad in his pond.

Dreamy Images Reveal Beauty in Physics

A dreamy new exhibition of images showcases the art of physics, from the beauty of a bubble rising to the flow of water around coral.

Image 1: Coral polyps sport tiny hair-like appendages called cilia, which they beat rhythmically in the water. Researcher used fluorescent beads to track the flow of water around coral polyps, finding mixing that is perpendicular to the water surface. This fluid motion may enhance photosynthesis and protect the coral from nasty microbes. Credit: Stocker Group, Civil and Environmental Engineering, MIT

Image 3: This starfish-shaped wave was created by vertically vibrating liquid in a container. The wave pattern alternates between looking like a star and looking like a pentagon. Credit: Jean Rajchenbach, Alphonse Leroux, and Didier Clamond (CNRS and Université de Nice, France)

The images, part of the American Physical Society’s Division of Fluid Dynamics Gallery of Fluid Motion, are drawn from the most artistic and evocative research presented at the Fluid Dynamics annual meeting. The meeting was held from Nov. 18-20 in San Diego.

A panel of referees chose the images based on artistic merit and ability to represent complex physics topics. Among the honorees is a photograph of a flow of honey spiraling as it hits the surface of water in a crystal goblet, representing “liquid rope coiling,” a physics phenomenon that should be familiar to anyone who has ever poured a stream of honey onto a biscuit. In the water, the coiled flow stretches and deforms before settling on the bottom of the glass.

It kind of looks like a painting. Surprising how beautiful some things looks under a microscope when normally we don’t even give them a second glance.
