A Cup of Coffee

I'm Nicole and these are my meandering thoughts as I try to figure it out.

Expression in the streets of San Francisco


Mons Klint, Denmark (by Vyacheslav Cherkasskiy)


Take a look at the sequence of images below (I recommend clicking through to enlarge, Tumblr Dashboard folks). Works best if you stare at the dot:


Color? Or black and white?

The rods and cones of your retina respond to the illumination (black-white) and color of a scene, respectively….

Another week in San Francisco.

1. Vanilla cupcakes with bacon

2. Artwork in SoMa (that’s furniture hanging off the building)

3. Dolores Park

4. Golden Gate from Baker Beach

You know what’s a sucky feeling? When you’re in a really good mood, having a good day, then all of a sudden are reminded that you’re not meeting any of the expectations that you or your parents have for yourself and don’t have your shit remotely together. Shit’s hard, but I think my expectations are reasonable. And yes I know it’s my expectations and not my parents’ that matter, but I do care about not disappointing my parents. And then your day takes a complete 180 and for once you’re glad it’s only Monday because then you think it’s the beginning of the week and that means there’s some small hope you’ll make progress before another week goes by.

Moon Rise Time Slice…. this is a collage of 11 photos taken over 27 minutes and 59 seconds

Gorgeous. Also photographic proof that the moon is not, in fact, larger near the horizon. That is merely an illusion.

What do they call that illusion? “The Moon Illusion” of course. ASAPScience did a really nice video about it.

Not only that, but see how the moon is red near the horizon? That’s because of the same science that makes the sunsets red and orange! And I did a video about that: “Why is the Sky Any Color At All?”

It all comes together, man! Science!
