Jellyfish Lamps by Roxy Russell
Available for purchase at Roxy Russel Design. The Medusae Collection grants all the the joyous, illuminating benefits of light and none of the horrible stinging you until you die parts of real jellyfish. If you’re into that sort of thing, I’m sorry, you’re gonna have to like, go in the ocean or something.
Fantastic underwater photos by Alexander Semenov, a marine biologist and a professional underwater photographer. Also he is a head of the scientific divers team at the White Sea Biological Station of Lomonosov’s Moscow State University, Russia. The station was founded in 1938 and mostly it was built by enthusiasts who came here because of the amazing atmosphere that had being developed over many years at the station. This is an unusual and unique mix of students energy, serious science and the harsh northern nature.
My daughter requested a jellyfish bento for lunch tomorrow after seeing pictures of them on my Tumblr feed. DAMN YOU, TUMBLR, AND YOUR LOVELY ARTSY OBSESSION WITH PRETTY JELLYFISH PHOTOS.
