Tales from the Collective Unconscious

This is a menagerie of images, interesting or beautiful, collected from the distributed dregs of human thought.

My own writings, photos and reflections can be found on my Photo of the Day blog.

As of yesterday I’ve taken a photo every day for the last five years. I’m hoping to capture the rest of my life like this, to have these little strands of memory that lead me back to each day, so that nothing is entirely forgotten. Here’s five years squeezed into three minutes; take a look if you want to see my life flash before your eyes.

These Ocean Waves Look Like Liquid Sculptures

By Megan Gambino

Photos © Pierre Carreau

“I feel like a hunter of perfect moments,” says Pierre Carreau. Most days, in a 20-minute window when the lighting is just right, the photographer is on the beach near his home on the Caribbean island of St. Barth shooting curling waves.

Carreau is mesmerized by breaking waves—the physical result of wind rippling the water surface and friction causing crests to spill onto shore—and he wants to freeze them and share them with the landlocked. ”My goal is to focus on the wave shapes that create a paradox of power and fragility,” he says.

Year 4 of my photo-a-day project. I intend to continue with this for the rest of my life, capturing a moment every day, so I might relive it all at the end.
