    Australian conceptual photographer Jane Long combined elements from her own photographic stock with an early-20th-century photo of a young girl [top] to create this dreamy work.

    The source of the original public domain photograph is the digital archive of Costică Acsinte, a Romanian who acted as both pilot and official war photographer in WWII. Post wartime, he opened his own studio in Slobozia, and his beautiful archive of Industrial Age portraiture is certainly worth a long, lingering visit on its own merit.

    Long has been experimenting with more from Acsinte’s collection, which you can find on her Facebook timeline.

    Train yourself to have vision, courage, and determination. These three things, to me, are very important. You have to work with people who have that, and at the same time, you have to have it, so that you can install it on people. You can excite them. You can show them you have a vision. You can show to them what they cannot see. At the same time, you should not have a fear of failure—this is what marketing is all about: fear of failure. Instead, you have to have courage. Courage not to fail, or courage, even, to fail! On top of it, you need to have determination to reach your objectives. Vision, courage, and determination will bring you where you want to go, but without them, it would be a miserable life.

    One of the greatest enemies of happiness, of enjoying life, is the intrusion of loneliness. When you’re most alone is in nausea; when you’re throwing up you are alone on the face of this earth. The moment of orgasm is very lonely too—a little island in the middle of nowhere. There are a lot of paradoxes involved. When you’re working very hard you’re not lonely; you are the whole damn world.
Shelby Foote, American novelist and historian of the American Civil War, contemplating the reasons why he writes, in a 1997 interview for the New York State Writers Institute.

    The dreamlike “hyper-collages” of American artist Jim Kazanjian are all improvised, digital patchworks of found photography. At no point in his process does Kazanjian employ his camera to capture “just the right’ element. Rather, he relies solely on the organic exercise of allowing each freshly-discovered photographic portion to inform the terminal direction of the whole. via Dezeen

    What a great photo of travelers hiking along the Mer de Glace glacier in the French Alps, 1867. BBC credits William England as photographer.

    Here is another colorized photo of a different group traversing the same area thirty-five years later, in 1902. via r/HistoryPorn

    Really loving these porcelain Fruit and Vegetable Peels Cups by Taiwan’s ViiCHENDESIGN. The intent is to create a deeper connection between the contents of the cup and the exterior form, a connection which is reinforced by touching the textured surface and associating it with the food or beverage within. via MOCO LOCO

    A million million spermatozoa, All of them alive; Out of their cataclysm but one poor Noah Dare hope to survive.
And of that billion minus one Might have chanced to be Shakespeare, another Newton, a new Donne— But the One was Me.
Shame to have ousted your betters thus, Taking ark while the others remained outside! Better for all of us, froward Homunculus, If you’d quietly died!

Aldous Huxley’s Fifth Philosopher’s Song (p. 45), c. 1918; a poem written to his elder brother, biologist Julian Huxley.
