Weston & Burtynsky on Ill Seen, Ill Said

Things are sort of crazy busy around here lately, leaving not a lot of blogging time or fabulous post-writing.  However, Jane at Ill Seen, Ill Said is on fire, and I want to send you over to see her brilliant post comparing Prof Richard Weston's silk scarves made with extreme close-ups of minerals and crystals and Edward Burtynsky's massive industrial landscapes.  I love love love Burtynsky's photographs, and Jane's comparison has made me see them in an entirely new light.
