The location of the sun,
counting in binary,
the units of time and space.

and great;
our star
through a prism.

Squatting children,
A family silhouette;

the structure of the earth.

A desert island,
the shore.
A river,
sand dunes,
monument valley.

Mushrooms in a forest.

A leaf,
a fallen leaf,
Sequoia in snow.

Daffodils by a tree,
a crane fly near flowers;
Diagrams of vertebrate evolution.

Shells,

schools of fish
and a toad.

A crocodile.
An eagle,
a watering hole,
and Jane Goodall with chimps.

Bushmen in silhouette
and sepia print.

A man from Guatemala
a dancer from Bali,
Andean girls
and a Thai man, carving elephants.

An elephant.

An old man in round glasses smoking a cigarette;
an old man in lush meadows exercising a dog.

A conquering mountaineer,
a time-lapse gymnast,
Veleriy Borzov winning a race!

Teaching at school;
a globe rounded upon by children,
and cotton harvesters,
and grapes.

Fruit, toy trucks, and basketballs in a supermarket.

A fish,
A fishing boat,
Cooking fish,
A dinner party,
Licking, eating and drinking,

A microscope,
A traffic jam in Pakistan.

Rush hour in India,
an Ithacan dual carriageway,
and the golden gate bridge.

A train,
A plane,
and Toronto airport.

An imperilled expedition to antarctica,
a Radio telescope with cyclists alongside,
and without.

A great book of Newton's;
an astronaut in space.

A rocket launch,
a sunset,
and a string quartet.

A violin with a score.
