I love this unusual picture of Easter Island taken from a kite. I’m so used to seeing these statues as larger-than-life, but here they look like birds on a phone wire. Maybe there’s a lesson here about keeping things in perspective :)

"The religious freedom laws are a fragile bulwark against a cultural change that most likely cannot be reversed. They carve out an exception to the principle of non-discrimination by sexual orientation that does not apply to race or sex. Even if few business owners take advantage of them, they could prevent future generations from remembering those who turned away gay and lesbian customers as part of the same class of people who put up ‘whites only’ signs in their shop windows."
