I’ve been avoiding posting for a few days now. This is my 100th post and I thought it should be something exciting! I debated sharing some of my own photography, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I have a bunch of artwork saved to share, but none of it was “Post 100” worthy. Then this morning I found this photograph on Flavorwire, which explains it as follows:
What you’re seeing is a photo of the Meathook Galaxy, named for the unique shape its two spiral arms suggest. “The galaxy’s lopsided appearance is thought to be due to gravitational interactions with another galaxy at some point in its history — though astronomers have not so far been able to positively identify the culprit,” the European Southern Observatory’s website explains.
I think this photograph is 100-worthy. What better way to celebrate a monumental post (monumental for me) than with a nice reminder that all this day-to-day stuff is nothing but a trifle?
