A neonate gray whale calf, born just hours before, still exhbiting embryonic folds in the skin along its side. This baby gray whale was born in the cold waters of Big Sur, far to the north of the Mexican lagoons of Baja California where most gray whale births take place.

Vices and Virtues, part of the Stuart Collection and University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Artist Bruce Naumann created Vices and Virtues in 1988 along the top of the Charles Lee Powell Structural Systems Laboratory at UCSD. Vices and virtues named in alternating neon light blink bizarrely around the building, lighting the night sky at UCSD. Very odd.
