i have always really loved land art (strijdom van der merwe is a particular favourite), and i know some people might scoff at the concept but most of the time i find it more interesting to look at than traditional sculpture… perhaps it’s just my tiny inner hippy that finds it appealing. i discovered richard shilling recently, imagine going for a walk in the forest and discovering one of these beauties…

my brother sent me a link to national geographic’s feature on montana, which subsequently lead me to montana’s official state travel site. such a nice, clean website that makes me want to visit that part of the world even more now. i still think being a national geographic / travel photographer must be the best job in the world.
i would never be brave enough to swim in a swamp, let alone go under water – so i am glad Karen Glaser did.
