Sometimes I hanker for sci-fi food – which, I admit, doesn’t make any kind of sense.  I want something so strange, peculiar and out there, that it just couldn’t come from our planet or time!  However, searching for sci-fi food will get you half a million results for gagh, scores of cocktail recipes for pan galactic gargle blasters, and a handful of very well thought out methods for making problematic ice planet desserts.  All well and good – but not alien enough for me – I don’t want the food of an existing franchise, but something odd in and of itself.

Osoznanie Sebya 4 by Koutchma on Livejournal

By Koutchma on Livejournal

Spotted this wonderfully evocative photograph today on Otaku Gangsta (a Tumblr blog), and then for the next ten minutes went down the rambling rabbit hole trying to find the original source – there must be nearly half a dozen intermediary links between where I saw it, and the original post on Koutchma’s Livejournal posts!  (Includes more photographs of the same series, the last one involving concealed nudity.)

I’m personally not so keen on the people in the background, but I prefer the composition of the tall version of the photograph here, as opposed to the cropped, but clean-backgrounded version in Koutchma’s other post.

Beautiful photograph, very inspiring, especially to one who wanted to be an astronaut when they grew up.  I keep imagining that the light she’s looking into, is the bright light of the future – the stars we’ll one day be amongst.
