photo essay: Street Photographer’s Photos Demonstrate Life’s Strange Visual Coincidences (My Modern Met). Street photographer Anthimos Ntagkas’s creative work, which takes advantage of serendipitous juxtapositions.

essay/photos: Moth Ball (Kate/The Nature of Things blog). “There were hundreds of moths, tiny micro moths, large geometer moths, brown moths whose wings showed delicate and mesmerizing patterns when seen up close. We saw pink moths, green moths, orange moths. I saw a moth looking soft enough to pat next to a beetle with pincers the size of a small city.”
essay: Birthday: Aging intensifies the flavor (Heather Havrilesky/Ask Molly). Hilarious and so entirely relatable. Warning: Lots of spicy language; if that’s not OK with you, don’t click this link and don’t keep reading. “GODDAMN IT!” I said, staring at the arugula. And then I yelled “I DON’T WANT TO COOK TODAY!” I yelled it with such despair that it could almost convince a person standing nearby that assembling a salad is just like cooking, only a little bit harder.”
