Very much fun seeing these artists in their studios. I felt most at home in Francis Bacon's and Sam Francis's.
Photos of famous artists' studios. Some are really tidy. I don't get that at all.
A good studio for an artist is the most important place. For us the creative studio sometimes might look like a pile of rubbish or a room where everything is mixed up , but this is where the great creations were born! Take a look at a collection of the greatest artists and their most intimate working places – their studios. I bet that you saw lots of their works in the museums and art history books, but often the artist himself is left unseen...

+Steve Harlow  A man after my own heart!  LOL  I don't mind the chaos at all.  I just need a little path through the debris.

Under The Dome - Chinese pollution documentary (not the Stephen King TV fiction)
Environmental awareness has been increasing in China, especially since air pollution levels in Beijing hit record highs in January 2013, a phenomenon dubbed the “airpocalypse.”

The documentary, explaining air pollution in personal, straight-forward terms, has touched a national nerve.

Seriously, I like it, and it's also a fond memory for me, so it works for me at a lot of levels. :)

With infantile rage and genocidal impulse, these misguided boys deliriously make life worse.

Sad.  Destroy your past, and you forget about it.  Forget your past, and lose your future.

Going down, down, and soon out.
"Concerned about backdoors implanted by the NSA, those revelations sparked a change in Chinese policy by forcing Western technology companies to hand over their source code for inspection. That led to an outcry in the capital by politicians who in the not-so-distant past accused Chinese companies of doing exactly the same thing."
Summary:China is backing away from US tech brands for state purchases as NSA revelations continue to make headlines in newspapers all around the world.

I hiked up a ridge to capture this as a 40 frame panorama. Back home, I post-processed it into what you see here.

This may be interesting to writers, especially two I know, +Emory Holmes II +Ruth Parson who use and really like #scrivener  for their writing. Andy Ihnatko (who recommended Scrivener to them) has now discovered that his new $59. WinPad700, a compact Windows tablet, runs the full version of Scrivener. He's been using it with a bluetooth keyboard, saving his files to Dropbox which syncs with his main Mac computer. He thinks the WinPad can be all he needs for writing away from home.
