'Kitāb Gharāʾib al-funūn wa-mulaḥ al-ʿuyūn' / The Book of Curiosities of the Sciences and Marvels for the Eyes
the oldest extant rectangular map of the world.

Kitāb Gharāʾib al-funūn wa-mulaḥ al-ʿuyūn, known as the Book of Curiosities. The manuscript is a copy, probably made in Egypt in the late 12th or early 13th century, of an anonymous work compiled in the first half of the 11th century in Egypt. The treatise is extraordinarily important for the history of science, especially for astronomy and cartography, and contains an unparalleled series of diagrams of the heavens and maps of the earth. (x)

For as long as I can remember my dad has been  making photographs. Whether they were still photographs or moving photographs, digital or film he was behind the lens. 

My brother and I have the same fascination. So it was a long time coming but we decided to make a trip to New Mexico. Just the three of us. A photographic adventure. 

I decided to only shoot film on this trip. My first time going on an analog vacation except for a handful of iphone snaps like the one above. I’ll share some more photos from the trip when it comes back from the lab. 

We arrived on Friday and will leave this morning. In Albuquerque we flew in a hot air balloon at sunrise along with 600 other balloons. We then headed north to Sante Fe and beyond. Each morning we watched the sunrise, explored during the day and then watched the sun set each night in this amazing part of the country. We took countless photographs between the three of us. 

But more than making photographs it was a special time for us. Time to connect, reflect and enjoy each other’s company. I am sorry it took so long to make a trip like this happen but we did it and I’m happy we will always have had this time together.

Dozens of rock art sites in southern New Mexico, recently documented for the first time, are revealing unexpected botanical clues that archaeologists say may help unlock the meaning of the ancient abstract paintings.

A moonbow is a rainbow caused by moonlight. It’s a bit fainter than an actual rainbow. Moonbows are rare because moonlight is not very bright. A bright full moon is needed & it must be raining opposite the moon. The sky must be dark and the moon must be less than 42º high. (Source) (You may also like: 360 degree rainbows)
