"...Long exposure photography has become very popular in the last couple of years, getting a lot of coverage in landscape photography magazines and on photo sharing websites. With the ever-increasing number of options for 10-stop neutral density (ND) filters on the market, there has never been a better time to give it a go..."

In your art, like an eagle eye view from the intelligence of the Universe, you have applied multidimensionality to important moments of human life such as praying, meditating and birth. What are your thoughts on creation and other life in the Universe?
Some of my paintings portray an x-ray view of the human anatomy including the light body -- acupuncture meridians, auras, chakras, prana, thought forms, symbols, archetypal vortices, the light that shines beyond the flesh.

The term "astral projection" is used to describe a phenomenon in which a person's consciousness leaves his/her physical body and travels outside independent of it. This experience is also called out-of-body experience (OBE), since the consciousness or mind or soul or astral body or whatever you wish to call it leaves the body.
According to a team of researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, mechanisms learned from the early phase of limb regeneration in a lizard-like amphibian known as the Mexican axolotl – wound healing, cellular dedifferentiation and blastemal formation – will reveal therapeutic approaches for tissue regeneration in humans.
In two genetic studies, the Salk team has explored why the Mexican axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum, can regenerate complex tissues such as entire limbs, while others including humans cannot.
“What our work suggests is that jumping genes would be an issue in any situation where you wanted to turn on regeneration,” says Prof Tony Hunter, director of the Salk Institute Cancer Center and senior author of both studies.
The scientists have found that two proteins, called piwi-like 1 (PL1) and piwi-like 2 (PL2), perform the job of quieting down jumping genes in this weird creature whose name means water monster and who can regenerate everything from parts of its brain to eyes, spinal cord, and tail. They say that in the axolotl, jumping genes have to be shackled or they might move around in the genomes of cells in the tissue destined to become a new limb, and disrupt the process of regeneration.
Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area claims the title of "largest urban national park in the country," but it's 150,000+ acres of mountains and coastline in Ventura and Los Angeles counties also include some distinctly non-urban wildlife.
