Every day

Every day that you learn something is a good day. Today I stumbled over nature printing, via this slideshow on the Guardian website.

Nature printing means using objects from nature to make produce an image. It ranges from leaves

to cyanotypes

to meteorites.

Which, given the past week's theme, feels like a good full stop.
