Beautiful Images

There’s quite a bit going on here at the Daily Globe today, so I thought I’d link three galleries of beautiful images and leave it at that.

Two are historical; the rest are historic.

In the late 1860s, a little girl sailed on a whaling ship and wrote a diary. These are images of the diary, complete with poor spelling, iffy penmanship and “Good bye for to day” notes. It’s a fascinating read from the Martha’s Vineyard Museum.

Would you like to learn how to photograph an atomic bomb? Look no further than this series of photos from the New York Times, all from a book, “How to Photograph an Atomic Bomb,” by Peter Kuran. There is audio with it; alas, I have not listened to it as yet. You’ll have to tell me how it is.

Finally, we have a series of photographs of our flooded region, taken by people who live here: Gallery I, Gallery II, and Gallery III.
