the Forest History Society is probably exactly what you think it is – an archive dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating forest and conservation history. they have an extensive collection of photographs that have been digitised, that you can search through here, as well as an online gallery sorted by subject. i found some of their best photographs over at their flickr page. makes you want to go camping, doesn’t it?
if you’re not yet familiar with Cereal, a quarterly travel and food magazine based in Bristol, you should go on over to their website and order a copy of their publication. i was just paging through the latest edition this weekend, so it was a nice surprise to discover Forest – a project they have recently launched to collect and curate woodland photography from around the world.
i have a few posts in the back of my mind at all times, and one of them was rounding up a collection of amazing huts and cabins i have come across on the internet. well, my job has been done for me – in the form of Cabin Porn, which is edited by jace cooke, brian jacobs, grace kapin and zach klein. follow them on twitter here. seen via mallix.
i went for a long walk in the forest this past weekend – one of my favourite ways to unwind. the only thing i will miss about summer is that the days are longer which allows for walks after work before the sun sets. then again, there are not many things in the world that are as nice as walking in a forest in the dead of winter. i’m not talking snow, because it doesn’t snow here, but certainly the smell of damp earth, wet pine needles and cold air. someone bottle that up so i can bath in it.
my little flat with zero forest / mountain / lake view is becoming increasingly depressing the more i look at these
