Photographer Lincoln Harrison has created the most amazing long exposure star trail photographs in the Australian Outback. Taking up to fifteen hours to capture each lens, Harrison uses standard, albeit high-end, photography equipment like the "Nikon D7000, Nikon D3100, and a wide assortment of lenses. Harrison captures a large number of exposures of the foreground and stars separately. He then combines the images (sometimes hundreds of them) into amazing photographs showing the sky dominated by colorful star trails."

Not only does this go in my "Why didn't I think of that?" file, it belongs at the very top. I've often made cool, mod places for birds to hang out (like this contemporary birdhouse, a more complex mid-century modern one, and this minimalist bird feeder). I love making stuff with a bold, typographic punch, and I certainly have all the tools and knowhow to pull these off.
It's there. Every night. Interacting with the landscape, shining some sort of glow... And the research about what we understand about the moon is still changing: it might be 200 million years younger than we thought. That's three times as long as the last dinosaur. No small potatoes.
This morning, I'm mesmerized by the Capilano Suspension Bridge near Vancouver, BC. It was built in 1889, and I love how contemporary it still looks. Good design is good design.
