We will own this and it will be cluttered with tacks and memories.
Amelia Earhart deep-see diving off Block Island, 07/25/1929. This photograph, part of the series Photographic File of the Paris Bureau of the New York Times, was taken a day after Earhart’s thirty-second birthday and about 18 months before she penned her bold letter on marriage to her future husband.
Complement with Earhart on drive, education, and human nature.

The planet Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons. This gives it the largest retinue of moons with “reasonably secure” orbits of any planet in the Solar System. In fact, Jupiter and its moons are like a miniature solar system with the inner moons orbiting faster than the others. Eight of Jupiter’s moons are regular satellites, with prograde and nearly circular orbits that are not greatly inclined with respect to Jupiter’s equatorial plane. The remainder of Jupiter’s moons are irregular satellites, whose prograde and retrograde orbits are much farther from Jupiter and have high inclinations and eccentricities. These moons were probably captured by Jupiter from solar orbits. There are 17 recently discovered irregular satellites that have not yet been named.

Jupiter is easily one of the most entertaining and enjoyable planets I continue to anticipate appearing in the evening sky. With the constant orbit of it’s most visible moons - Callisto, Io, Europa, and Ganymede - allowing for a new sight through binoculars or telescope each time.
If you look at these works by Vincent van Gogh nice and slowly, you could see this amount of detail with your own eyes!
Anyone working in studio photography will tell you that glass and metal (any reflective surface, really) is a frustrating challenge like no other. This shot was actually an accident - I was setting up my black cards in front of a 3x4 softbox, and just testing strobe exposure. I was shooting tethered, and wasn’t impressed by this shot at all. The 1x4 softboxes on either side of the glass were too far away and not firing bright enough strobes.
It wasn’t until I looked at it later that I realized how lovely it was. The thin outline of the glass was enhanced in Lightroom by increasing the highlights and dropping down the darks and shadows. I did clean up a few stray reflections in Photoshop, converted it to black and white and there you have it.
