"A British professor is getting a swarm of attention for a series of photos depicting tiny creatures that he suggests look like fairies.
John Hyatt, who lectures on art research at Manchester Metropolitan University, took the photos around Lancashire, UK. The collection, entitled “Rossendale Fairies,” is on display at the Whitaker Museum in Rossendale.
In an email to The Huffington Post, Hyatt said that he spotted the tiny creatures after taking pictures at dusk.
'I was just taking sunset through the trees and when I enlarged the photographs later in the studio, I saw these figures,” he wrote. “They are not doctored apart from I increased the size of a detailed section of a larger photograph along with the DPI to stop them being just large pixels — normal size enhancement techniques'.”

"In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people saw themselves as part of nature and not outside of it. The destiny of whales cannot be separated from the destiny of man, and the destiny of man cannot be separated from the destiny of all of nature. I am exploring new narratives that help build a bridge across the artificial boundaries we have established between ourselves and other species."
Anonymous asked: I think that people respond negatively when someone talks about being makeup free because they themselves aren't confident enough to go without it. I know that I am jealous of your confidence, that you are comfortable with how you look without makeup, so that might be why you are getting hate mail. Don't let it bother you. But as much as I am happy for you, those type of posts make me feel like makeup makes me "fake" and whether it's true or not I and probably others don't like thinking about it
I can understand that and I’m sorry you feel that way. I’m sure your beautiful on the inside and out. The reality is that make-up alters the true appearance of a face. Maybe that’s a better way to put it, instead of saying the word “fake”. I didn’t always feel comfortable without makeup. But I’ve come to realize that there is too large of a disconnect between humans and nature. We forget that we are animals and we forget that we live in a world that shoves advertisements at us and makes us feel like we need to look a certain way. I’ve had a long time to grow into my skin. I hope with time that you come to love and accept your naked skin. xx
i post about how women are beautiful without makeup and i’m getting hate mail and being called cold hearted and judgemental.
i never said that wearing make up makes you a bad person just that you are beautiful without it.
what the actual fuck?
