JP BEVINS RED HOOK CRIT WOMENS PORTRAITS
I’m a sucker for a good set of portraits and JP did an incredible job with these. 

"Despite the weather conditions, despite a crash during the women’s race that left a racer with a broken collarbone, despite having to travel across the country, overseas, or from their home on the other end of Brooklyn, these women are amazing. I’m honored I was able to shoot them."

Head over to nolifelikethislife.com to see more of JP Bevins’ work.

theoriginofthespecies:


In its 4.6 billion years circling the sun, the Earth has harbored an increasing diversity of life forms:
for the last 3.6 billion years, simple cells (prokaryotes); for the last 3.4 billion years, cyanobacteria performing photosynthesis; for the last 2 billion years, complex cells (eukaryotes); for the last 1 billion years, multicellular life; for the last 600 million years, simple animals; for the last 550 million years, bilaterians, animals with a front and a back; for the last 500 million years, fish and proto-amphibians; for the last 475 million years, land plants; for the last 400 million years, insects and seeds; for the last 360 million years, amphibians; for the last 300 million years, reptiles; for the last 200 million years, mammals; for the last 150 million years, birds; for the last 130 million years, flowers; for the last 60 million years, the primates, for the last 20 million years, the family Hominidae (great apes); for the last 2.5 million years, the genus Homo (human predecessors); for the last 200,000 years, anatomically modern humans.
Periodic extinctions have temporarily reduced diversity, eliminating: 2.4 billion years ago, many obligate anaerobes, in the oxygen catastrophe; 252 million years ago, the trilobites, in the Permian–Triassic extinction event; 66 million years ago, the pterosaurs and nonavian dinosaurs, in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.
Dates are approximate.

He considered his answer carefully. Finally, he said that there was nothing he would like more in the world than to see his mother and father again, but that he had no reason—and no evidence—to support the idea of an afterlife, so he couldn’t give in to the temptation.

'Why?'

Then he told me, very tenderly, that it can be dangerous to believe things just because you want them to be true. You can get tricked if you don’t question yourself and others, especially people in a position of authority. He told me that anything that’s truly real can stand up to scrutiny.
