South Pole Greenhouse- Part Deux

We're getting ready to tear everything out of the greenhouse soon so that all the trays can be cleaned and maintenance performed on the system. I'm not terribly happy about this because it's my favorite place on station and it's nice to have a mini wonderland of greenery to step into at the end of the day but it seems necessary. 

Until then, I'm trying to capture the heart of it with my camera as it will be many weeks before it will regain its lushness.

Another Shade of Lisbon

Lisbon was so colorful, it was hard to resist shooting in color themes. My favorites of course were the yellows, but there was plenty of vibrant red to go around too...

A Shade of Lisbon

One of the things I loved most about Lisbon was all the vibrant tile work adorning the old buildings scattered around the city. Not only were they colorful, but in many cases they were textured as well, creating magic in the streets...

Bone Church

When I first heard about the Bone Church I never really imagined that it would be made up of SO many bones. The outside of the building was this really beautiful, serene place. Then you step through the entrance and bones everywhere! It was more than a little creepy, but also fascinating, in that train-wreck kind of way that insists you keep looking.
