@ossobuco,
I thought they were sun hats. It's hard to believe that this type of by-foot mining is still done so recently.

@littlek,
I recently discovered the Wired Science blog. It's an amazing connection of science-related photo galleries, mostly space stuff. In addition, most of the photos come paired with some fascinating scientific issue, which they illuminate. For example, here is a photo from the latest entry, discussing dunes on Mars:

In this case, the bonus scientific question is this: In the thin atmosphere on Mars, winds almost never blow hard enough for dunes to form in the way it happens on Earth. So how do they form? Anyone interested can learn more in this article: Martian Dune Mystery Solved by Bouncing Sand Grains

Love it!

I love looking at photographic portraits, for what the tell us about the subject. This one is a long-time personal favourite. A young Virginia Woolf (the writer) taken in 1903. I think it's just beautiful.

Photographer: G.C. Beresford.

Another, very different, study of Virginia. Date & photographer unknown. Intriguing.

A much later portrait of Georgia. In New Mexico by the looks of it.

@msolga,
Lovely of Woolf. I wish I'd seen this last week. I was helping a student narrow an essay on b & w photography..and the only one I knew was Bourke-White. There are fascinating pieces in here. Oh well.... NEXT year!

I ran across this image of Florida's Everglades and thought of the next one which I took of a Japanese Maple. I wanted to see them side by side.... (edit: not the effect I thought it'd have)
