You know what goes together well: greek yoghurt, honey and toasted sesame seeds.

Thursday Morning breakfast with Jon was even longer than usual as we talked for two hours.

Been listening to this one piece of beautiful improvisation a few times every day; it’s from the album Keith Jarrett: Paris/London Testament, and it’s track #7 called Paris, November 26, 2008: Part VII. It sounds brilliant in 24/96k, but it’s still lovely any way you can hear it.

These photographs of albatross chicks were made just a few weeks ago on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

To document this phenomenon as faithfully as possible, not a single piece of plastic in any of these photographs was moved, placed, manipulated, arranged, or altered in any way. These images depict the actual stomach contents of baby birds in one of the world’s most remote marine sanctuaries, more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent.

Direct link to the photographs here. Images are graphic – you have been warned. We need to examine every aspect of how we live. Cradle to cradle, reduction of waste, reduction of consumption…

    Oh my goodness, the symbolism also of what we feed our children. Trash in – Trash out. It is so sad of what our present day society has evolved to because of greed and laziness. Let change begin with me.

    Such contrast with the beautiful sample offered of, “#7 called Paris, November 26, 2008: Part VII”, to the photographs by Chris Jordan.

    We can create beauty or destruction. Unbelievable, how much debris. Thank you for sharing both.
