Hello and thank you for taking time to look at my Tumblr page. The images here hopefully help to fuel your imagination and maybe even show you what a beautiful place we all live in, if you only take the time to look. THIS BLOG IS CHILD SAFE
Breath (by Tim Winton) is set in a small fictional village in Western Australia. Childhood friends Piker and Loon grow up daring each to more and more dangerous stunts. As teenagers, they take up surfing and meet Sando, a former pro surfer who leads them to new levels of daring. What I remember most about this book is the image of the beauty and the savagery of the west Australian coast. Winton put me on the edge of my seat, underwater with those boys. 4 stars
Video (5 min)It took 8 years and 18 expeditions to New Guinea, Australia, and nearby islands, but Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photographer Tim Laman succeeded in capturing images of all 39 species in the bird-of-paradise family for the first time ever. This video gives a sense of their monumental undertaking and the spectacular footage that resulted.
