No history today - only beautiful flowers, fit for a mid-summer day. Madrid-based nature photographer David de los Santos Gil took over 50,000 photographs of flowers to create this time-lapse sequence of blossoms bursting into bloom. There's an entire garden of flowers here: lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies, and nigella damask. The accompanying music is by Roger Subirana. Truly breathtaking!
There’s a big difference in how we use history. But we’re equally nuts about it. To us, the everyday details of life in the past are things to talk about, ponder, make fun of -- much in the way normal people talk about their favorite reality show.
We talk about who’s wearing what and who’s sleeping with whom. We try to sort out rumor or myth from fact. We thought there must be at least three other people out there who think history’s fascinating and fun, too. This blog is for them.
