C.S. Lewis on true friendship – beautiful short read.
Lovely creek-side spot where I sat for at least an hour, reading an excellent page-turner this afternoon (“The Help” by Kathryn Stockett), near the center of town in Ambleside, in the Lake District.

“I was waiting to try to photograph the exodus of refugees coming out of Syria. It’s a picture that’s very very difficult to get as a photographer now because all of the neighboring countries have really shut down their borders, so I stood outside of the smugglers village because I knew that they were crossing there. And every hour or so someone would come up to me and say ‘get out of here we’re going to kill you.’ And one guy came up to me and said ‘I’m going to get my knife.’ Another guy came up to me and said ‘just wait until dark, because when dark comes you’ll see all the refugees.’ So I put my cameras in my bag and I waited, and of course at dark they all started streaming out.” – Reportage by Getty Images photographer Lynsey Addario.
Watch Addario talk about her career and the stories behind her images in this video.

Paranal Observatory in Chile | Via
Paranal Observatory is an astronomical observatory located on the mountains of Cerro Paranal in the Atacama desert of northern Chile, at an altitude of 2,635 meters, about 120 kilometers south of Antofagasta and 80 km north of Taltal. Far from city lights, high above sea level, with more than 350 cloudless days a year, Atacama desert is an ideal location for ground-based astronomy.
The Very Large Telescope (VLT) at Cerro Paranal is European Southern Observatory’s premier site for observations in the visible and infrared light, and at one time, was one of the most powerful optical array in the world. This groundbreaking observatory consist of four separate 8.2 m (320 in) telescopes and a large collection of instruments. Additionally, the four main telescopes can combine their light to operate as a single device.
