    From Edward Topsell’s The History of Four Footed Beasts and Serpents, published in 1658.  Topsell refers to the world of insects as the Theater of Insects, perhaps this little guy is leaving to take in a show!

    Thierry Cohen’s Darkened Cities

    Celestial skyscrapers. Night sky can’t be seen over major cities due to light pollution. Cohen photographed cities and took special note of time, angle, latitude and longitude of the photographs.He followed the same stars and photographed them in more ideal locations, such as the Sahara Desert.
