Tom Robinson Travel Photography: I'm going to be a dad! 30 Best Quotes About Travel We travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more. Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted. To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. The traveler’s boast, sometimes couched as a complaint, is that of having been an eyewitness, and invariably this experience — shocking though it may seem at the time — is an enrichment, even a blessing, one of the life-altering trophies of the road. A journey is like marriage. I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.

Burning Man :: Welcome Home Wind Farms Create Their Own Clouds Wind farms receive a lot of praise in the fight against climate change. Along with solar, they're often pitched as our last hope for energy independence. Ironically, not only do they "fight" climate change but they also create micro-climates . Like giant egg mixers, off shore wind farms blend warm sea air with the cooler air above. Of course, all it takes is a windy day to clear the cloud cover. Studies has shown that large wind farms can even change weather patterns. However, researchers "acknowledged the hypothetical wind farm was far larger than anything humans are likely to build," but if Department of Energy projections for wind farming are met by 2030, "it could probably have an effect," says James McCaa of 3Tier, Inc. , a renewable energy forecasting company based in Seattle.

BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

Google Sketchup for Engineers | and everyone else! auror.jpg (JPEG Image, 800x533 pixels) The Girl Who Loves to Levitate (14 photos) Natsumi Hayashi is a sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, "jumps" into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don't feel forced. When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared. "So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, 'I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party's slide show.' "Then, I took one of the best levitation shots of the entire series." "We are all surrounded by social stress as we are bound by the forces of earth's gravity," Natsumi says when asked why she took on the series. Natsumi Hayashi's website
