Saw this stunning image, which comes courtesy of NASA, and had to share. It takes many single frames that are compiled and edited into this one final image.

This stunning image by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope features the spiral galaxy NGC 5643 in the constellation of Lupus (the Wolf). Looking this good isn’t easy; 30 different exposures, for a total of nine hours of observation time, together with the high resolution and clarity of Hubble, were needed to produce an image of such high level of detail and beauty.

NGC 5643 is about 60 million light-years away from Earth and has been the host of a recent supernova event (not visible in this latest image). This supernova (2017cbv) was a specific type in which a white dwarf steals so much mass from a companion star that it becomes unstable and explodes. The explosion releases significant amounts of energy and lights up that part of the galaxy.

The observation was proposed by Adam Riess, who (alongside Saul Perlmutter and Brian Schmidt) was awarded a Nobel Prize in physics in 2011 for his contributions to the discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe.

BROKEN WINDOWS-PAINTED MURALS. On May 30th a Protest turned violent and broke over a hundred windows from Deep Ellum to the West End, in Dallas, Texas. The Businesses boarded up the holes with plywood. The Dallas Army of artists and many others came to the rescue and painted them with Murals of love, hope, commerce and protest. I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of these artists and documented their stories and Murals. For the next month I am going to profile them and the beautiful Art. I also made a Documentary website. Enjoy.
Looking for a student photographer that’s looking to build their portfolio and experience. I’m currently in the process of doing a fashion blog and needing pictures. Thank you!
Might be of interest to you, London.
