A Florida man was taking a stroll on a beach when he stumbled across something out of the ordinary: a giant blue eyeball, just sitting there in the sand.
Slate reports that a giant eyeball washed ashore in Florida, and that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission needed help identifying it. Early money was on that it was the eye of a swordfish due to its color and the bones around the ball, and genetic testing confirmed the hypothesis. As for how the eye came to be disembodied / disarticulated, that’s a bit harder to figure out. The leading theory on that front is that it was tossed overboard from a fisherman.

I really wish I knew more about this, but I don’t. Apparently, it’s near Moscow.

Zander Olsen‘s ongoing project “Tree, Line” wraps trees with white plastic up to the horizon and then photographs the resulting illusion. The results are a bit surprising, and I thought that some of them were manipulated until I looked more closely at them.

Alas, Oscar isn’t being tossed through a window.
