Surreal world

Elena Kalis is a conceptual underwater photographer. She was born in Moscow (Russia) and have lived for the past ten years on a small island in Bahamas with her husband and two children. She had an education in art, but have recently been following her interest in Photography. Over the pat years, she have been doing some underwater projects with her children and friends. Some of her interest have been used for book, magazine and CD covers and have appeared in print magazines and online publications.

I stumbled upon looking her projects. Her brilliant interpretations makes the photos alive. I adore her works. Some of it has props used to give more effect on the subject. It's not easy to take pictures underwater but whenever I see this photos, it makes me feel the other way around. I wanna also give it a try however I don't have this underwater gadget. Dive into the surreal world of Elena Kalis on these sites Flickr, Facebook, and to her Gallery.

Morning Glory pool

A deep, funnel-shaped pool with a dark blue center resembles to the corolla and the color of Morning glory, where its name associated. It was given that title in 1883 by the wife of an assistant park superintendent. Just in recent, the pool has started to go by another name "Fading Glory". Temperature: 171.6 degrees F. Dimension: 23x26.6 feet. Depth: 23 feet. It has been a popular thermal feature at Yellowstone.

The delicate blue water is created by thermophilic bacteria, which thrive in the pool's searing heat. Long a ago, in Yellow National Park, The Morning glory suffers from the inconsiderate visitors who have thrown trash in the pool for over a century. This cause the slowly built up and blocked some of the thermal vents and reduced the heat of the pool, allowing the bacteria to begin at the edges, thus this creates the red and yellow ring around the pure blue water. Occasionally, often following seismic activity, the pool erupts in a geyser.

Love yourself

Why do I need Self-care? Isn't that selfish? If your asking that, consider Jesus' words in Matthew 19:19, "You shall love your neighbor as you love yourself." Most of us think that being selfish is bad. Actually it is important to our health. Let me share you something.

You have the responsibilities to love and take care of these plus your friends right? But what if one day you exhausted or burnt out? Try using your hand without using your thumb. You'll found out that your hand is useless. No matter how hard you work, the hand falters. See? How will you able to give love if you yourself don't love yourself. Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit therefore we should take care of it. Here are some ways that will help you manage that:
