autumn leaves

Sitting in Sheffield Botanical Gardens on Sunday. Felt overwhelmingly happy surrounded by the intense yellow of crisp fallen leaves with sunlight sprinkling across as they fluttered gently with the wind.

Ordinary Beauty - the photography of Edwin Smith - RIBA

I hadn't heard of Edwin Smith before and I think I really should have. His photographs are beautiful with amazing light and show the beauty of everyday life.

Ancient Lives, New Discoveries - British Museum

Fascinating look under the wrappings of Egyptian mummies. They put mummies through scanners and you can see the amulets and things wrapped in there as well as into those jars of hearts/lungs etc. You can see what the people looked like too. At the end you see their ghostly faces recreated. It's macabre and yet it conjures up real lives from the coffins.
