“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”
― Charles de Lint

Fairy house shelf? Perfect!
For a stunning series entitled Blackwater, Hawaii-based diver and photographer Joshua Lambus takes beautiful photos of luminous aquatic creatures against a perfectly black background that enables us to better appreciate just how incredibly awesome they are.
Lambus says, “Now being underwater I’m inundated with stories, struggles, triumphs. Seeing our fragile ecosystem inch ever closer to the verge of destruction pushes me to continue my work, not only for artistic value, but for a far greater purpose. I hope to tell a story and ask for help for those without a voice.”
Here’s hoping we’ll see some of these enchanting cephalopods in our dreams tonight.
Visit My Modern Metropolis to view more of Joshua Lambus’ astonishing Blackwater series and then head over to his own website to check out more of his photographic work.
“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
― Robert Frost
I love “different” people, and this little hippie-fae just tickles my fancy! *big grin*
I often have the need to “connect” with Mother Nature. She calms my crazy fast paced worries and centers my thoughts on what’s most important.
You never know what’s behind each door, unless you take the time to unlock it.
Imagination is the all-seeing center of your soul, embrace it…
