if you put a frog in boiling water, it will jump out.

if you put a frog in warm water and gradually turn up the heat until the water is boiling, the frog will remain there until it dies.

and that is an abusive relationship.

Holy shit.

Absolutely beautiful images from Botswana, the colours and patterns are breath taking. It’s so easy to forget how incredible nature can be.  7

‘Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.’

From Alexandra Davy’s series 'Lignes Vertes'.

Plants are a part of nature, but walls are a part of culture.
They provide us with an artificial protection from the eyes of the world. Inside, they conceal what we’re hiding; outside, what we’d like to see.
Which probably explains this odd habit we have of trimming our hedges just like we cut stone or cast reinforced concrete.”
