One of the prettiest botanical prints I have found. This is from a collection of prints made pre-color-photography that detailed commercial fruits currently being grown in the US. They are highly detailed and highly accurate representations and fantastic artworks in their own right. — Douglas

Home School: The Romanian Revolution: Explained via History Matters on YouTube

June 15th, 2020 Comments off
I love learning about history I haven’t been exposed to before. These short videos fill in blank spots in my knowledge and help knit together the story of the past. — Douglas
 
In 1989, a wave of revolution swept across Eastern Europe, disrupting the Communist governments of Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary and of course, Romania. But how did the Romanian Revolution play out and why couldn’t Nicolae Ceaușescu or the authorities stop it like they had done previously? And why did it end the way it did? With the same people still in power and the Ceaușescu’s subject to a mock trial.

Artist Uses Real Pressed Flowers to Create Delicate Animal Illustrations via My Modern Met

June 15th, 2020 Comments off

British artist Helen Ahpornsiri brings whole new meaning to botanical illustration with her incredible artwork made from pressed flowers and leaves. Her delicate compositions depict the diversity of the natural world, from mammals and birds to insects and sea creatures.

 
Using real flowers, petals, stems, and leaves, Ahpornsiri responsibly forages her materials from her own garden and local nature spots. Each botanical component is carefully chosen to celebrate its natural form, and in some works, the artist even uses specific components to correspond with her subject’s natural habitat. In one piece, a seahorse is crafted from tiny pieces of red marine algae, and in another, a majestic blue whale is made entirely from pressed seaweed. “The marine algae I use is foraged from beaches on the south coast of England,” Ahpornsiri reveals. “I search for loose pieces of marine algae along strandlines and in rockpools, especially after stormy seas, to avoid being disruptive to the surrounding ecosystem.”

MESSAGE TO BRITISH HOUSEWIVES

By The

HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR CANADA Canada House, London, S.W. 1

THIS little book contains recipes for a number of delectable dishes that can be prepared easily and quickly from preserved or packaged foods and is intended to provide several more links in the chain of distribution between the Canadian producer and the consumer.

The book tells you something of which Canadians are justly very proud: that no other country produces food under more hygienically perfect conditions. The same standards are maintained in our home and export markets: the former because the health of the people is a paramount concern; the latter because we jealously guard our good name.

The principal Canadian pure food products which the recipes cover are dealt with under separate headings and you are asked not only to use them but to give them a fair trial by preparing them in the most appetizing manner. They are good, wholesome, and delicious: each in its own class as near perfection as can be attained. You are urged to buy them because they are good, and not simply because they are Canadian. All things being equal, you are requested to give a logical preference to the Canadian product over the foreign.

The recipes given are quite comprehensive within the field that the book covers, and it is felt that they will prove extremely useful.

How to Create a Photogram Effect with a Digital Process via Digital Photography School

June 13th, 2020 Comments off
One of the first photographic processes I learned was how to make a photogram. Since then, I’ve often wondered if a digital process could adequately mimic the appearance of the finished photogram aesthetic. The difference between the original and digital processes means that the results of any digital technique can’t really be called a photogram as such (I’ll call it a photogram effect). Nevertheless, there are digital processes that do hearken back to the appearance of the photogram.

The yellow mums in a container in the back garden are blooming again. I had to move them to a shadier spot as the sun and heat were baking them each day. Now they look really good.
