For 2014, Eric Beug is working on his lung strength

Oh, these are so fun. It’s really refreshing to see an artist/photographer who is making fun work. Not everything has to be deep and meaningful at first look, people!

Titanic violin

violin1Oh whoa. The violin that Wallace Hartley was playing Nearer my God to Thee on while the Titanic was sinking has been found. After the ship sunk, he used it to float on. The violin was discovered only by chance when the son of an amateur musician found it in his attic. It was given to his mother by her violin teacher and was left gathering dust.

Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch

whiskyMacallan 101

If you’ve ever met me, you know I love Scotch. And I love photography and what weird things photographers come up with to keep the medium new and fresh. So I love Ernie Button‘s photographic experiments with Scotch residue–he’s shining different colored light through it, photographing the residue, and on and on. They’re gorgeous. Like seascapes! Listen on NPR!
