The more I see the less I know for sure

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.

Nikon’s Small World Winners

Anglerfish ovary by James Hayden from the The Wistar Institute
This section of flower stem was photographed by Gerd Guenther.
This image of olivine within the igneous rock gabbro was taken by Bernardo Cesare.
Arlene Wechezak from Anacortes, Washington, took this image of algae and diatoms.
Veterinary optometrist Havi Sarfaty took this image of discus fish scales.
From New Scientist:

Crossing a microscope with a camera gives you a micrograph, a tiny photograph that allows artists and scientists to show the beauty inaccessible to the naked eye. Every year the Small World competition run by optics giant Nikon celebrates this hidden world. This year the winners range from an anglerfish ovary to the sex organs of plants via a rusted old coin.

The Other Side of Paradise


‘The Other Side of Paradise’ is a highly entertaining comedy about a girl named Rose who embarks on a journey of self-discovery on the way to her first gallery opening. Along the way, she picks up Alex, the newly single friend she’s always had feelings for, and her misfit younger brother Jamie, who recently was released from prison. On the road trip, the trio encounter off-the-wall characters and hilarious cameos that chew up the Texas countryside. In the end, the three must come to grips with their own issues of trust, abandonment, love, and ultimately hope. (SWFF)
