It’s easy to forget that the mounds of snow lining sidewalks each winter actually are comprised of billions of tiny crystals with individual grooves and feathered offshoots. A trio of photographs taken by Nathan Myhrvold, though, serves as a stunning reminder of that fact as they expose the intricacies hidden within each molecule.
One of the most beautiful and surprising things about my birthday trip to Montreal was how many murals are around the city. The creativity and craftsmanship that went into each was astonishing. I highly recommend a walk down Saint-Laurent Street to see these works of art in person.
