I was a weird kid with a lot of obsessions, mostly obsessions centered on the natural world (although I did go through an all-things-ancient-Egyptian phase at one point). Of course I had a rock collection (Guys. I still have it.), and I remember the few agates and geodes I had were my favourites. The complexity of the mineral patterns was always good for hours of staring and imagining tiny landscapes with tiny people and tiny animals, and you get the idea.
I have to say I’m happy I haven’t abandoned all of the fascinations I had back when I was little, and was pretty darn excited to find these beautiful images from flickr user, Captain Tenneal. Be sure to click over to see them full size.
