I had the chance to visit the Millennium Seed Bank at Kew Gardens, Wakehurst with +Oliver Pattison while in the UK. This video (and others in the series) does a beautiful job of explaining their work in long-term conservation of plant biodiversity.

Using mapbox.js and some of my own photos, I made a MapBox demo with image markers on a map layer.

A lot of nice shots --detail, depth of field, textures.  I like the stone wall and dry leaves

“In a growing body of photographic and video art done over the past decade, Magyar bends conventional representations of time and space, stretching milliseconds into minutes, freezing moments with a resolution that the naked eye could never have perceived.”

A good read on an invasive species of cockroach in New York City that can survive cold weather.

I read it. Really way more interesting than I would have imagined an article about cockroaches to be.

I went for a long photo walk with my Fujifilm X-E2 and 35mm prime lens. I am processing the photos now. This is the most fun I have had with photography in years!

As I listened to Mancuso limn the marvels unfolding beneath our feet, it occurred to me that plants do have a secret life, and it is even stranger and more wonderful than the one described by Tompkins and Bird. When most of us think of plants, to the extent that we think about plants at all, we think of them as old—holdovers from a simpler, prehuman evolutionary past. But for Mancuso plants hold the key to a future that will be organized around systems and technologies that are networked, decentralized, modular, reiterated, redundant—and green, able to nourish themselves on light. “Plants are the great symbol of modernity.” Or should be: their brainlessness turns out to be their strength, and perhaps the most valuable inspiration we can take from them.
