As summer simmers...

I have found myself to be an infrequent blogger, very blase and uninspired. That is until I came across these images. Once more I am amazed and in awe of the creative genius that some possess.



Just when you think you've seen it all...

A sleeping giant was awakened in Nantes, France, the birthplace of author Jules Verne. This giant puppet was made by theatrical artistes Royale de Luxe. I have no words to describe the awe that I feel when seeing such creative people at work. via socyberty
This group of street artists is also responsible for the Sultan's Elephant shown here.

I don't feel nearly as bad about being a bad blogger after seeing that you haven't been at it much, either.

Anyway, I'm glad I stopped in today. The pictures are gorgeous and intriguing, and I have a book to recommend: Jo Marchant's Decoding the Heavens (about the Antikythera Mechanism). In the first chapter, she talks about the history of the diving suit, and the part it played in the mechanism's discovery. She also has a blog connected with her book's web page (decodingtheheavens.com). Anyway, good to see you back!
