arc de triomphe

    Newer Older

    The universe is 14 billion years old, but it's 180 billion light years wide. It's accounting for that difference that explains why a lifetime of physical and emotional scarring can be healed in the three seconds it takes for a baseball to pass over the arc of a parabola.

      This is an extraordinary image. And I'm not going to say this lightly... but it's one of the best street images I've ever seen! : )

      Not only is it a beautiful moment, perfectly captured. You have the extra subtle details, too... the arc of a parabola of the ball - which is entirely imagined - is curiously mirrored in the curves on the top of the rubbish bin and the guy bending over's back, too. Amazing. Really special. : )

      ditto, but i am still unable to understand why the difference between the age and the width of the universe explains it ("it's accounting for that difference")!
