You'll notice that I have refrained from using my usual Sunday Songs segment today; a segment which I employ in order to avoid posting actual significant content. You may have also noticed that this is my first post in quite some time. I have been absent from the internet void for two reasons:
1) It's summertime, and I've been lingering on any patio, beach, or park bench that I have access to.
2) The internet is boring. Or at least, I am entirely bored with most of the art, photography, and fashion showcased therein.
Antlers used in home decor. Rose-tinted photographs of suspended balloons. The fashionable revival of 90's day-shift hooker wear. Bloody FACEBOOK. I realize it's all relative and everyone has different tastes, but some things just WILL NOT DIE. Can we move on now? Pretty please?
I promise I only get cranky like this most of the time, not all of the time.

Are these even real? Bas Princen aims to create landscapes which "can only exist in a camera" and utilizes natural and urban architechture to construct his visions. Trained in architechture as well as photography, Princen is well versed in merging aesthetic design with utility. As such, his completed compositions seem to blur the lines between what is natural and what is man-made, leading to questions about human purpose, human impact, and natural history.
They're pretty mindblowing to look at.
