Remarkable photo essay, in four parts, from Sasha, documenting a giant icicle and its ultimate demise; documentary work that's surprisingly funny and really charming. I gotta agree with Philip--as much as I love SFJ's writing, I'm starting to suspect that the real reason I look at his blog right now is for the photography. Lots of tonal contrast, but obviously all the work of one guy with one very keen eye; love the colors and textures (sometimes both, sometimes just one), and the way he gets to the center of the subject (literally and figuratively both) without seeming too obviously point-and-clicky about it.
