Photographer: TheAstralCity

Company: DanceCircus

Performance: “Surface Tension”

Note: It hit me today, as I was at work editing this photo I took at our company’s great show a week ago, this is what I actually do for a living. Working with these fantastic people, being around such creativity and beauty, this is how I pay my rent. My friends work for major corporations, they are accountants, engineers and information technologies professionals. I help make wonderful things happen, then capture, and share them when they do. I am an incredibly lucky person, and never want to take that for granted.

In this week’s issue, Burkhard Bilger writes about the ongoing effort to explore what may be the deepest cave in the world, located in Mexico—“a kind of Everest expedition turned upside down”: http://nyr.kr/1iNcr8B

In this video, the cavers scale slippery walls, swim through frigid water, and make camp in a cloud forest, as Bilger narrates: http://nyr.kr/1eAO5n2

Spelunking is some of the coolest shit ever! I’ve always wanted to try it. Go get em boys! There still are places left unexplored.

Wisconsin’s largest metros are surprisingly dense

New Smart Growth America report determines that Milwaukee and Madison top the charts in terms of density and work-home connections.

  • Milwaukee is one of the most “compact and connected” large metros in the U.S
  • Madison is the most “compact and connected” medium-sized metro.

(h/t The Dish)

So what does this mean? Well that Milwaukee is actually more compact for our population overall than cities like Chicago and LA. Yet we for some reason we still make do with just buses for mass transit. Wow.

This is an accurate representation of how Generation Y markets to Baby Boomers.

WHAT A REAL MAKE OUT SESH SHOULD LOOK LIKE *AHEM*

It’s like that with Jason

As a photographer, I love this series. I love her destroyed makeup, I love his hair, I love the fact that it leaves so much to the imagination and most of all I love the genuine nature of it.

It may be posed, it may be polished and intentional, planned to the supreme detail, there may be an entire crew just behind the camera, and may have taken hours to get just right. Or it may be just those very right moments.

I can’t tell.

I can’t separate the story and the work, and that is why I love this so damn much.
