Ed Book

edbook appeared on my friends list a while back, and I've been enjoying his LJ entries a lot. Ed's a photographer, and takes nature photographs that simply amaze me. He has his work up on a website, but also posts it frequently to his journal. Take a look. You will be very pleased, and I'll bet you will want to add him to your friends list as well.

Henshall suggests taking the bottom radical as 'moon' (月), and as a mnemonic: 'Young blue-green plants grow on the moon.'
