Naomi and I have taken a bit of a break from the blog. As long-time readers have noticed, we have been moving quite a bit over the last few years. When we started Hakusan Creation in 2013, we focused on our life in rural Maine. We have also shared many stories from our travels. Over the next few months, Naomi and I will be evaluating the direction we would like to take with our blog and the stories we would like to share. We will of course continue to share our photography. We hope you will continue this journey with us.
We visited the Smithsonian American Art Museum this week. This is a series of prints from their exhibition ¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now. The exhibition runs until August 8. Click on the image for a larger view.
Near the Smithsonian National Air and Space museum, this carousel was built in the 1940s in Baltimore. The carousel is unique in that it had four moving horses abreast. Click on the image for a larger view.
Cicada exoskeletons mixed with undeveloped cicada nymphs under a tree. Not all cicada nymphs reach their adult stage. The adult cicada near the top of the image on the tree was not able to develop its wings properly. Click in the image for a larger view.
