The perfect thing to doodle over a departmental breakfast!  I love it!
Mathematically-correct breakfast: How to slice a bagel into two linked halves, based on work by George Hart '77, PhD '87, a mathematical sculptor/designer and professor of engineering at +Stony Brook University. http://mitsha.re/WHZSbu

Worth viewing for the writer's warning alone!

Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).

Until I saw this referenced on the EdX 6.00X course, it had never occurred to me that this piece is now an anachronism: most youngsters have probably never even heard these marvellous percussive sounds that were an integral part of my working life for quite a few years!
I loved this piece so much - thank you EdX 6.00X for reminding me of it!

Being in the right place at the right time is so magical!
The Dance of Trees

This past Friday afternoon, my colleague and friend, Dan Harlacher, and I took off for Silver Falls in Oregon. The weather was uncharacteristically beautiful and we decided to capitalize on living in such a gorgeous state. Aside from the falls themselves, the surrounding forest was absolutely gorgeous. As the sun began to set, a beautiful fog began to set, adding a dramatic depth to this image. Furthermore, the low sun backlit the green moss beautifully, helping to sculpt the many shapes of these trees.

I was particularly fond of this image because of the tree in the lower center portion of the frame. I love the way it is bent backwards with branches stretching up, like it is in the middle of some tribal dance.

Sometimes, it's not what we see with our eyes but rather, it's what we see with our mind's eye.

In terms of processing
All touches ups and stylization were done in Lightroom 4.3. I actually started out by applying one of +Nicole S. Young's Cross Process LR Presets and then refined to taste using the various tools in the Develop Module.
