Lost on my way to life.

I collect postcards and would love to do a postcard exchange with each and every one of my followers.

Also, I love ducks.

Beautiful, bizarre images of Earth taken by the European Space Agency’s fleet of Earth-observing satellites.

These pictures are more than just cool: In a talk at TEDxBarcelona, Stephen Briggs — head of Earth Observation science at the ESA’s European Space Research Institute — tells the fascinating tale behind the satellite and explains how these uncommon images of Earth are more valuable than you think.

Watch the whole talk here»

Toxic Forest

Depicts 139,000 cigarette butts, equal to the number of cigarettes that are smoked and discarded every 15 seconds in the US. Cigarette butts are the number one littered item found in America’s public spaces including parks, beaches, waterways, and urban environments. This form of litter has far-reaching impacts on the environment: littered butts leach numerous toxic chemicals and carcinogens, contaminate water sources, and poison wildlife. The filters are made of cellulose acetate, a type of plastic that does not biodegrade.
Artist Chris Jordan assembled a digital image called ‘Toxic Forest’ which is exactly how it sounds—it is composed of individual, high-resolution photos of hundreds of cigarette butts that he gathered from various places around Austin and Seattle.

10 Incredible Gargoyles & Grotesques

In architecture, grotesques are often confused with gargoyles because both are eerie, strange creatures that are carved from stone and placed on the tops and sides of buildings. However, the distinction is that gargoyles are figures that contain a water spout through the mouth which conveys water away from the sides of buildings, while grotesques do not. Grotesques are used for ornamentation. Architects often used multiple gargoyles on buildings to divide the flow of rainwater off the roof to minimize the potential water damage from a rainstorm.
