Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in July 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
Today’s photo is of Argentina. A tongue of mud lashing in the river’s mouth.
Spaceflight finale: To some this may look like a sunset. But it’s a new dawn.
In this series, Naturally Modified, Ajay Malghan takes a look at the food we eat. This camerless body of work was created by putting fruits and vegetables between glass plates and using them as a negative. As Malghan states,
“By utilizing colour, the works abstract the viewer and remove the otherwise ordinary fruits and vegetables from their context. As photography is deeply rooted in science; these images extract the camera and allow us to see the ordinary in new ways while blurring the lines between art and science. As our food is more processed and more steps are introduced between farm and table, the colour added becomes ironic with art imitating life.”
