Saul Leiter

probably my favorite photographer.
his bold composition sense is phenomenal.

This is the kind of post I both love and hate to see on Tumblr. Love, because I get exposed to creators I’ve never heard of; hate, because I always feel like the format and ethos of Tumblr pressures me to scroll through posts as fast as possible when what I really want to do is linger.

Hummingbird nest on top of gargoyle.

That is one tiny gargoyle, if you think about the size of hummingbird nests.

The old Cincinnati Public Library

More pictures and historical context here and you can bet a library like this will show up in a story I write someday.

The pheasant-size hoatzin fans its feathers, often while strutting along a branch, but flaps its wings clumsily when it takes to the air. It lives near swamps, digests food by fermentation like a cow, and is so odd that scientists can’t decide how to classify it.

Classification: Draco Vulgaris

Apollo 1 crew practicing a water landing in 1966.

It doesn’t look like a “water landing” so much as “best pool party ever”

I love his combination of embroidery and photography. He brings these two together in a unique way that creates illusions in his works.
