http://design.org/blog/photography-and-inspiration-total-lunar-eclipse <p>I saw Google's Doodle today, which displayed the lunar eclipse in real and selected time. I jumped over to <a href="http://www.space.com/" target="Space.com">Space.com</a> to check out the details. Unfortunately I missed the eclipse, but I did find some gorgeous photographs of the event, which happened to be the longest eclipse since 2000 and one of only four to last more than 100 minutes. Also check out the fun infographic video toward the bottom of this post to brush up on some terms or learn why the moon turns red.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="641" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/06/16/lunar_eclipse_8_0.jpg?1308228750" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/photography-and-inspiration-total-lunar-eclipse" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/photography-and-inspiration-total-lunar-eclipse#comments design inspiration photography space Thu, 16 Jun 2011 12:56:34 +0000 jessicapatterson 2916 at http://design.org Color Inspiration from NoBrow Magazine http://design.org/blog/color-inspiration-nobrow-magazine <p>I'm digging the muted tones in this Asian-inspired cover illustration for <a href="http://www.nobrow.net/" target="NoBrow">NoBrow</a> magazine.
