  2. "I understood that I was inventing myself, and that I was doing this more in the way of a painter than in the way of a scientist. I could not count on precision or calculation; I could only count on intuition. I did not have anything exactly in mind, but when the picture was complete I would know."

  4. “I’m sure.” Draco looked him over in a leisurely fashion. “Merlin knows why I fell in love with you. Easy on the eyes, yes, but the masochistic streak is rather wide for my preferences.” Then he chuckled. “But you’ve taught me a new emotion. I feel sorry for your Weasley, since I’ll win in the end.”

    “You can’t be sure of that,” Harry said, clutching with desperate hands to his wavering hope.

    “Yes, I can,” Draco said. “I can see your eyes.” He turned to walk away.

    I dream you, and you come to me
    intact, in focus, indiscreet, mouthing
    the sweetest lies as if we cared.

    As if, in fact, we might begin again
    with needle-tracks and scratches down your arms
    that might have told in drunken hieroglyphs

    how heavy-shouldered I pick my way
    through a night of empty forecourts,
    back to the etceteras of passion:

    the obligatory pathos of discarded shoes,
    the glass of water juddering by the bed,
    the face my heavenly eyes avoid.

    Photographer Imagines What World Cities Would Look Like Without Lights

    French photographer Thierry Cohen wants to show you what the cities might look like if they went dark on a clear day, and if the photographer focused on bringing out the stars. His project Darkened Cities shows recognizable cityscapes in darkness under the night sky.

    To create the images, Cohen first traveled to locations that are untainted by the light pollution of large urban areas, capturing beautiful night shots of the Milky Way floating overhead.

    He then combined these photographs with manipulated photographs of various cities (e.g. San Francisco, New York City, Tokyo, Rio de Janerio) to complete the effect.
