“An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles”

, , ,

From Fumiko Hirai on Twitter.

The title above is what J. B. S. Haldane (1892-1964) replied to theologians who inquired if there was anything that could be concluded about the Creator from the study of creation.

Profile Rock, Columbia County, Pennsylvania

, , ,

1901 view of Hanging Rock, later known as Profile Rock or Indian Head, along Route 42 beside old Canal north of Catawissa along the road to Bloomsburg, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. My native region’s smaller version of New Hampshire’s Great Stone Face. This ancient postcard was obviously made from a photograph taken a minute or two earlier than the photo from Shorpy’s directly below. Note that just beyond the Canal is the North Branch of the Susquehanna River. (Click on image for larger version, then click once more to enlarge again.)


Shorpy’s today is running another, just minutes later, image I had not previously ever seen. This is not a post card, but the full size photograph that they made a postcard from. The train is gone and the wagon is much closer to the camera.


Early postcard view from opposite angle with canalboat. (The canal was still in use!) This one might even be earlier than 1901.


Another 1900-ish postcard view.


1920s, possibly early ’30s, telephone poles are gone and the road is paved.


Late 1950s, the road is a lot wider.


Contemporary, color photo.

Latest Puppy Pics


Hussar, the black Taigan (a sighthound breed from Kyrgysztan) puppy (now getting pretty big) was born July 21, making him a bit over 4 months old.

Uhlan, the older dog, is an 8-year-old Tazy (a sighthound breed from Kazakhstan).

It took Uhlan 7 weeks to begin even to tolerate the puppy, but he will now play with him. Of course, like everyone else, Uhlan finds keeping up with the urge to play of a hyper puppy exhausting.

Karen’s photos here.

Taigan vs. Tazy

, , ,

Karen has a new photo essay with the new Taigan puppy (Hussar) playing with Uhlan (our older Tazy). The Central Asian sighthounds are fierce critters.

Tazys come from Kazakhstan. Taigans from Kyrgyzstan. Hussar is from the first litter of Taigans born in North America.

Spectators Matching Artworks

, ,

Bored Panda:

France-based photographer Stefan Draschan always keeps himself entertained at art galleries by creating his own art projects.

One of those projects is “People matching artworks”. Although at first Draschan’s images seem perfectly staged, the secret behind them is actually patience. The photographer enjoys visiting different museums mostly in Paris, Vienna and Berlin where he waits for visitors to suddenly match with a piece of art in a funny way. The result is these humorous and unique pictures of unexpected harmony between people and the artworks they’re facing. It’s usually the outfits that match the art, but there are also people who match with the paintings because of their hair styles and colors, or even beards.
