I discovered that first curtained landscape through Pinterest (it really uncovers some gems sometimes), and lo and behold, it is only one of a whole series of curtained landscapes by photographer Rebecca Reeve. The series, called Marjory's World, was shot during the artist's residency in the Everglades in December 2012. Read more about the project here.
Also, today is my birthday, so after work I will be stuffing my face with sushi and ice cream. Maybe a few hours apart. For some reason I don't think they'd settle well together.
