Because it’s Friday, let’s look at amazing photos

Let’s take a moment to marvel at the beauty and wonder of our world.

Not to get too emo on you, darling feminists, but I’ve just gotten done posting about racism, sexism and sexual violence in war and conflict. And the past few weeks have brought a reinvigorated assault on women’s health care. So, let’s take a minute and marvel. I bring you some of the photos from the Smithsonian’s 9th Annual Photo Contest. Enjoy:

    I’m sure these amazing photographers appreciate that you posted their photos on the blog without crediting them or even linking back to the Smithsonian website that credits them.
