Musei Civici Veneziani

Cleaning out old cards from my wallet and found my museum pass, for the Civic Museums of Venice, from a trip to Italy a few years ago.



Vedas by Nicholas Alan Cope and Dustin Edward Arnold

Vedas by Nicholas Alan Cope and Dustin Edward Arnold

From their blog:

Vedas is an ongoing project broadly based on the theme ‘knowledge’. Specifically the changes in thought established by Copernicus’ De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres). One of the earliest documents of the scientific revolution. It re-assessed man’s place in the cosmos and placed him at no greater value than other creatures on earth.

Knowledge, it seems; is at once both expansive and contractive. It is a value exchange. For some it shakes foundations, de-stabaizes values and opens up the sheer terror of possibility. For others it signifies hope, advancement and discovery.

Pulling some old photos from my phone.

Grand Canyon, pulley gear

This is a gear from a old pulley system that serviced a mine on the west side of the Grand Canyon.

… Guano Point, is named after an old guano (bat droppings) mine that operated in the 1950’s. Guano was used primarily as a fertilizer because it is extremely rich in minerals. Daring miners would hoist hundreds of pounds of guano across the Colorado River up to the present day Guano Point. The ruins of the mine and pulley system still remain, visitors can walk right up and touch them.

I happened to be in the right place at the right time when I took this picture. The place was Nichols Bridgeway leading to The Modern Wing of The Art Institute of Chicago, with beautiful views of downtown Chicago, while the time was sunset. I love the architecture, the vibrant city life and the light, all captured in the same frame.
