My lovely sister-in-law sent me a link to Bowiebranchia, the most incredible Tumblr site, this week. As someone who is both a Bowie fan and a former scuba diving instructor, I couldn’t believe my eyes.
The site is packed with photos that pair a David Bowie shot with a nudibranch, highly coloured sea creatures I like to think of as the Christmas tree decorations of the deep. They are truly extraordinary. Underwater photography is a highly specialised art, in itself. All my efforts ever yielded were a fuzzy blue thing in a fuzzy blue place.
It was so hard to choose which one to include here. In the end, I had to go with the Ziggy Stardust album cover. Why not have a look at the site and let me know which one you like best?
“I don’t see any boundaries between any of the art forms. I think they all inter-relate completely.”
