Any of you out there watch this show on Fox – Bones? It has slowly become my new obsession. I started watching it a bit last year, and now I just started watching the complete first season to catch up. Kathy Reichs, the forensic anthropologist on who life the main character is based, is one of my all-time heroes. I studied this woman (and her work) in college (I was an anthropology major, with an interest in forensics), and she is an absolute genius! I watched the show a few times before I realized that it was based on her experiences, and later learned, based on her crime novels (which I have yet to read…in my spare time). For any of you out there who love a good, gory, crime-solving show, this is the absolute ultimate in entertainment!! And if you don’t already know human anatomy and the names of all the 206 bones (in adults, 300+ in babies and children), you will surely learn them! Even all of the bones in feet & hands (which make up more than 50% of the total bones in an adult). Ok, so this isn’t really photography related…..except that, I find it helps to have an understanding of the human body as the complex thing that it is, as an artist. Ha ha. Welcome to my dorky world ; )
