Don’t worry: No puppies were drowned in the making of Underwater Puppies. Photographer Seth Casteel says his shoots actually doubled as pool safety lessons:

So many people forget that our swimming pools, as much fun as they are, they are a danger, and they can be a danger to … our fur children. … I mean, a lot of these puppies I work with — for Underwater PuppiesI worked with over 1,500 — all it took was just a few times, putting them in the water and teaching them where the exit is, and they figured it out.

More photos (and Casteel’s interview on Morning Edition) here!

How do you stay so skinny?

Yay for anon messages.  I haven’t gotten an ask for awhile.  How do I stay skinny? I have my metabolism to thank for that.  I have irregular eating hours, and I eat unhealthy (most of the times).  But I know one day my metabolism will just say goodbye, then I’ll be asking people how they stay so skinny TT

I’m left alone at my #fieldwork again. And every so often the hallway light goes off on its own. It’s so freaky how quiet it is here.  I feel completely secluded on this entire floor by myself.

Hermit

the-nathaniel:

What’s wrong with being a hermit,

interacting in my own mind?

It’s not people are any worse,

I just prefer my own company.

Withdrawn to isolation,

my senses are heightened too,

and I hear the little voices,

sounds not heard before.

And most importantly,

I can really hear me.

3D Fractals

Last week I met Tom Beddard, a physicist turned web developer turned artist (and friendly guy). He creates fractals — those recursive shapes that infinitely repeat at every scale. They’re based on simple math, but they can create some amazing images.

Says Beddard: “I don’t seek any new mathematical insight into the resulting structures, it’s a purely aesthetic pursuit to scratch a creative itch. Part of the fascination with fractal exploration is when … amazing and completely unexpected structures can pop out and surprise you.”

Some of the fractals look like Gothic architecture. Some of them look like alien seed pods. All of them are mesmerizing. You can see lots more on Beddard’s flickr page. You can actually fly through the fractals and see them morphing in these videos. And now, thanks to a new app called Frax that Beddard helped develop, you can make fractals of your very own.

Though they pack one of the deadliest stings in the ocean, if you can get close enough, you’ll find that the Portuguese Man-of-War jellyfish is also one of the most beautiful creatures alive.

For the past two years, retired U.S. Navy photographer Aaron Ansarov has been capturing stunning photos of man-of-wars along a local Florida beach.

Photographer Gets Up Close and Personal With Deadly Jellyfish

Thanks Jenny
