Look at this! If this isn’t joy, I don’t know what is. From the NYT, this is the full story.

September inspirations

3 October 2008
For a while now I’ve been keeping files in iPhoto of pictures I’ve taken each month. The subjects are random – just things that I encounter in my daily life that inspire me. I’m trying now to get them all up on Flickr to make them more accessible.

September was a small gallery (maybe I was taking a break after the 700 photos I took in Egypt and Jordan in August). You can find it here.

This is my favorite image of the month, though some people find it gross. I just think there is so much aesthetic value in an oyster – the rutted, stony texture of the outer shell; the fine, flaky edge; the luminous white of the interior shell; and best of all, the watery suspension of pattern and texture inside. I love the toothy ruffled edge of muscle, the kidney shape covered with tiny parallel ridges, the egg-like spots and the leaf-like veining.
