Bob Mazzer: 1970s/80s London Tube Scenes

Minute Reveries

There are so many things we see on our daily commutes but don’t always have the opportunity or guts to capture. They don’t necessary have to be wild or odd – just a little out of the ordinary, just enough to catch one’s eye. Luckily for Londoners, photographer Bob Mazzer was paying attention.

Some trains were not in vain.

For more Mazzer delights, there’s this short VICE interview, this Telegraph compilation, and this profile of the exhibition opening night.

Martian Anniversary Selfie (NASA)


Martian Anniversary Selfie (NASA)

Explanation: June 24th marked the first full Martian year of the Curiosity Rover’s exploration of the surface of the Red Planet. That’s 687 Earth days or 669 sols since its landing on August 5, 2012. To celebrate, consider this self-portrait of the car-sized robot posing next to a rocky outcrop dubbed Windjana, its recent drilling and sampling site.


The mosaicked selfie was constructed with frames taken this April and May using the rover’s Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), intended for close-up work and mounted at the end of the rover’s robotic arm. The MAHLI frames used exclude sections that show the arm itself and so MAHLI and the robotic arm are not seen. Famous for panoramic views, the rover’s Mastcam is visible though, on top of the tall mast staring toward the left and down at the drill hole.


Thanks, as…
