Mental health, public health, global health. New and interesting developments in technology and the arts. Meditation research. And occasionally cute animals.

 

If ever there was a good reason to have a child.

This little girl’s mother is from Helsinki, Finland. 


While her daughter is soundly asleep, she creates a completely different world … from whatever she can find around her!  That’s how both of them became really famous. What a truly fabulous imagination.

A wedding takes place in front of strung-up S.S. infantry. Topless  women bathe in a river and are discovered by a Nazi soldier. What appear  to be oddball scenes from World War II staged with action figures are  actually one man’s attempt to rebuild his life.
These images come from the mind of Mark Hogancamp, who was beaten and  repeatedly kicked in the head by five men outside a bar in Kingston,  New York eleven years ago. The attack was so brutal that afterwards his  mother Edda did not recognize him. When Hogancamp emerged from a 9-day  coma, he had no language, he could not walk and he could not eat without  assistance.

Kolmanskop, Namibia
Photograph by Chris Gray
Kolmanskop, Namibia.  Kolmanskop is an abandoned diamond mine near the coast.  The “ghost” town has several residences and barrack-type accommodations, as well as the remains of a few commercial establishments.  Today the town is a photographer’s dream come true.  One cannot spend enough time taking in all the photographic opportunities.  For this photograph I had to crawl through a small opening in a window and have my friend pass my camera gear into me.

Wow!!  I had one of these growing up.  I thought it was the most amazing thing.  I couldn’t stop touching the crystal growth bits, fascinated by them, and wound up accidentally breaking many of them off.
Thanks for that bit of nostalgia.
