'American Horror Story: Coven' first teaser unveiled

EDIT: AHA!  YES!  I knew I wasn’t nuts.  Second image is ‘pina bausch, blaubart (performance), 1977.’  

That there is a teaser available for AHS Coven is probably old news to most of you, but that’s really not the point of this post.  Doesn’t this image look really, really familiar I am fairly certain that a photo with an uncanny similarity to this has graced my dashboard here on tumblr several times over the past few years.  Sometimes with artist credits, sometimes not.  But I know I have seen something almost exactly like this before - in the past few days even! - and  it is driving me nuts that I cannot find it again.

Do you know the photo that I am talking about?  Eerie black & white (rather like a Jean Cocteau film); a series of women floating/pinned to walls?  If you have any idea what I am going on about, please link me to it.  I know I am not crazy.  

With regards to this particular thing, anyway.

Fingal’s Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the InnerHebrides of Scotland. It is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns.

Cooling on the upper and lower surfaces of the solidified lava resulted in contraction and fracturing, starting in a blocky tetragonal pattern and transitioning to a regular hexagonal fracture pattern with fractures perpendicular to the cooling surfaces.

As cooling continued these cracks gradually extended toward the centre of the flow, forming the long hexagonal columns we see in the wave eroded cross-section today. Similar hexagonal fracture patterns are found in desiccation cracks in mud where contraction is due to loss of water instead of cooling.

Its size and naturally arched roof, and the eerie sounds produced by the echoes of waves, give it the atmosphere of a natural cathedral. The cave’s Gaelic name, An Uaimh Bhinn, means “the melodious cave.”

The amazing contents of Steve Wozniak’s travel backpack. 
What you see above is just his charging setup—there’s even more! Here he explains  himself:
You might think this is abnormal for me but, to the contrary, it’s customary.
Every extension cord and USB adapter and USB cable shown here I carry all the time in my backpack with a few exceptions:
• one Belkin AC tripler with dual USB I carry in my suitcase• one dual USB adapter is from Janet’s travel stuff• Canon battery charger is carried in the camera bag• firewire HD I carry in my suitcase• Verizon 3G mifi adapter (standard micro USB screws up this mifi, have to use their awkward connecter)
Almost every USB cable is retractable.
Every device shown, I carry in my pockets or in my backpack all the time except:
• 2 iPhones, an iPod nano and an iPad belonging to Janet.
Some people ask how heavy my backpack is. There are a lot more things in my backpack including
• the AirPort Express and MacBook Pro 85W magsafe adapter, which are out of sight in this photo,• bluetooth mouse,• binoculars,• projector connectors,• multiple Gameboy Lights (a Gameboy sold in Japan but never in the U.S.),• Gameboy link cables,• plenty of foreign AC adapters,• prism glasses for watching movies in bed,• sunglasses,• earplugs for concerts,• Ultimate Ears UE18 earplugs for flights,• Gameboy link cable,• tons of pencils for pencil games on flights,• tons of pens,• tons of sharpies,• tons of paint pens (signing),• red-blue-purple-yellow-green laser pointers,• credit cards,• hotel cards,• airline cards,• hard rock card,• medical cards,• small accessories like olloclip iPhone lens adapter,• Square,• flash keys,• flash media adapters,• cigarette lighter dual USB adapter,• audio doubler cable,• iPad USB/SD Card adapters,• toiletries for hotels,• batteries of many types (AA, AAA, CR2, CR128, odder types for things like my bag beeper for locating my suitcase)• eyedrops,• $2 bill pads,• pencil puzzles,• itineraries for upcoming travel…
I usually say that my backpack weighs 50 pounds. I’m not sure but I have to carry it every step through airports. I’m sure that I’m shorter now than before and I don’t walk as fast. Everything has its place in my backpack.
Sometimes TSA takes a long time unpacking it. A couple of times they asked me to take out everything electronic and I asked for seven bins, all of which I filled (only 2 half-size), plus my MacBook Pro, plus the bag. All of that through the X-ray machine. Then repack it.
Nothing in my backpack goes unused, although the bluetooth mouse is close.

Palíndromo Mészáros, The Line I: The Dive. 14th of October, 2010 at 12.25pm in Ajka, Veszprém county, Hungary: around a million cubic metres of toxic waste were released after the burst of the retaining wall in one of the reservoirs used for the accumulation of MAL aluminium company rubbish. This photos have been taken six months after the accident when the silence takes the place of the headlines and just The Line is left.

Lord of the Flies by Antonio Gonzales Paucar

Held up by strings, Antonio’s sculpture tells the story of a man who mysteriously devolved into a swarm of flies. Either that or Jeff Goldblum made vigorous love to his transportation machine.
