Olympic Art and Issues

In honor of the opening game of the Olympics today, I thought I'd share some of my favorite Olympic art, video and issues of the last couple of weeks. In addition to the great art, and articles, be sure to watch the Boris Johnson video from Cassette boy

Starting today, hopefully we can enjoy the sport as well.

Amazing Macro Photos from Nicky Bay

The blog is called Macro Photography in Singapore, so you shouldn't expect less than some amazing close up photography. Nicky Bay is the photographer and his blog is full of excellent photographs of a range of unique insects, spiders and other critters.

I'd come across it on another blog that was featuring a shot of his, the ladybug mimic spider.   It didn't take long for me to get sucked into the blog and going through months of pictures.

Jellyfish lake in Palau

Amazing video of a lake called Jellyfish lake on Eil Malk part of Palau where snorkelers can swim with hundreds of jellyfish which inhabit the lake. According to United Air, I could get there from Boston via Houston, Hawaii, and Guam for roughly $2300.
For now I'll have to be satisfied with this amazing video from Sarosh Jacob. (The music is Radiohead "Nude".)
