#Photography on the Blog 7/1 | Because We Want the Beautiful


Summer fireflies in a forest near Bangkok city, Thailand.

I've been lucky enough to see a few fireflies along the way but, dayum, that's a lotta fireflies.  Even in the darkest of the Groves in Eden Park I didn't ever see fireflies like this.

When a bee flies amid the lotus, it becomes a poem.

Ed:  that's soooo kozmik

It kind of is, mate.

Jammin' in the jungle and you thought humans would be doing it.




Poppies in a meadow at Old Erringham, Sussex. Almost 2,000 roads in Britain contain the word “meadow” or its Welsh equivalent “dol” but the flower-rich fields they were named after are vanishing, experts warn.

These are NOT opium poppies.  Few things support such an abundance of life as a meadow and the Rockhouse finds every dimension of beauty in that.  There's one deep blue flower in the mix so what's his story.

Perhaps immersive art of this nature is regarded as too electrotechnical but it does make quite a spectacle and the young lady seems enthralled.

There's a lonesome beauty which is engaging but the zebra is a herd beast and this would be one smart little zebra to catch up with the rest of them.

Note:  maybe the tree is an old acacia?
