      Spitfires went through extensive rounds of camouflage paint. Perhaps their most unusual colour was a light pink. The pink seems bright enough to signal every enemy within five miles. Certainly true when seen from above. These planes were painted to fly just under cloud cover ideally at sunset and sunrise, when the clouds took on a pinkish hue and made the plane completely invisible against them, they were also useful during the day. Clouds are pinker than we give them credit for.

Find out why a pink aircraft can get lost in the sky.

    This is in our studio, the cabinet all the way on the right (the wooden one) is an old Hamilton wood type cabinet. My dad found it for sale on the side of the road in PA, refinished it and was keeping nuts & bolts in it until we convinced him we should have it to store our wood type in.

    wonder if this could work in a home setting somehow...


    Guinnevere Shuster is a professional photographer and the social media coordinator at the Humane Society of Utah. Using her photography and media skills she helps otherwise often overlooked dogs find forever homes. The photos depict each dog’s individual personality and show the dogs as they are outside of their kennels and metal bars at the shelter. Doing so gives potential adopters a glimpse at what they’ll be getting rather than what can be seen at the shelter itself.
