The Nature Of Things | Lungs Are Our Tree Inside

Resin Cast of Lung Bronchi | Photographic Print at AllPosters.com

Lungs are our tree inside, is what I found out recently (!).

I always imagined them like this, sort of…

Two pieces of meat, the factory where oxygen is processed.

Our Room For Rent

Our room for rent.

I made a new postcard for the guestroom.

It looked like this, back in 2013.

Must See | When They See Us

When They See Us – Illustration Richie Pope, The New Yorker

I just finished watching the meticulous, breathtaking horror depicted in the popular Netflix series When They See Us. A series telling the story of the wrongfully convicted groep of five young black boys, the case know as the Central Park Jogger Case, or Harlem 5. They went to prison from 4 to 12 years. Gruesome. At times I cried, choked up, clenched my fists and even shouted Bitch! at the screen at some point.

I dreaded the second evening, The Second Half of this test of endurance to wear the glasses of truth, for the duration of the show.

A must see.

 

Yusef Salaam is one of the notorious Harlem 5, telling his story after being acquitted.

I worked on something I did earlier. Last summer I spent time in the dark room, printing old negatives. It’s an image of a little souvenir I treasured but lost.

Amsterdam Sunset

Amsterdam Sunset | View onto the basin in front of the camping site Zeeburg

I like to cycle and this is what I saw the other day, only a mile away.

Amsterdam Sunset – View of the cranes on the building site of the new borough Amsterdam Cruquis Wharf

 

A ship with a load of sand on it’s way to the North Sea (?), seen from the Nescio Bridge.

The sun setting over the Amsterdam-Rijn Canal. During the day I like to read the names of the ships, as if they mean something.

On trips during the day I like to read the names of the ships, as if they mean something.

Color Inspiration | New York

A travel inspiration article on the stone colors of New York City I did (The Fabric of Home did) for the latest issue of MrWoon magazine. I was in NY last October, when I took the pictures. It stood out like a theme.

Freddy Mercury Doing A Smokey Robinson

Marble Texture_01 – The first from a collection marble prints – Free downloadable marble print by Shutterstock

 

Staring at the fabulous marble pattern for maybe just a moment too long, I started to see the face of Freddy Mercury…

…which reminded me of… the wonderful rare recording that was handed to me on a special playlist, composed by a fellow student at the artist in school course BIK, Christine.

It’s Freddy doing a Smokey 😉

PS | Let’s not forget about the Huli People.

Huli People on Google search

Let’s not forget about the Huli people.

A quick search on Google tells me they have been discovered by now.

The odd tribe in Papua New Guinee where the ultimate goal in style for men is to wear wigs, and hair is the gospel. The British band Scouting for Girls did a music workshop with them. Amazing result.

A reader reminded me of my post on the discovery, Catchy Culture Swap,

and it made me think.

 

Stay positive. There’s still much to discover.

 

Who knew? Is there any tribe that we not know of still?

 

It’s in my keyboard, under my fingertips. The other side of the world is only a click away.
