what would it be like to tell someone everything? would they hate you, would they be afraid of you… would they accept you?
You are being lied to about pirates
Who imagined that in 2009, the world’s governments would be declaring a new War on Pirates? As you read this, the British Royal Navy – backed by the ships of more than two dozen nations, from the US to China – is sailing into Somalian waters to take on men we still picture as parrot-on-the-shoulder pantomime villains. They will soon be fighting Somalian ships and even chasing the pirates onto land, into one of the most broken countries on earth.
In 1991, the government of Somalia collapsed. Its nine million people have been teetering on starvation ever since – and the ugliest forces in the Western world have seen this as a great opportunity to steal the country’s food supply and dump our nuclear waste in their seas.
Through Caitlin’s Eyes
Caitlin Worthington is an amazing, young photographer out of Australia, that beautifully captures her subjects. I can’t help but be drawn in by the eyes in almost every photo she takes. It reminds me of how the native americans believed that a photograph would steal your soul… looking at her pics, i think they were right. Every thought, every feeling is captured for that instant in time, and if you can read the eyes, you can know.
Not to get off on a tangent, but i wonder what we are seeing when we look in the eyes? How do we decipher feelings by looking at eyes? If a person is sad, It’s not like there eyes become more white, so what is it? You might think it is in the fascial muscles, but if you cut out the eyes, you can tell there is some emotion but no soul or heart. It’s just vacant and mechanical.
Back to Caitlin, i absolutely love her work and i can’t wait to see more from her in the future. Thank you to Caitlin for giving permission to post her photos. Please don’t forget to check out her portfolio.
Read below and click the pics for Caitlin’s perspective on some of her favorite photos.
This photograph of my brother is very personal to me to describe a deeper reason for it is something I’m not prepared to do. But I’m very close to my brother and shortened I feel this represents his inner darkness and fear of the world while foreshadowing his beauty around it.
It represents my feeling towards the models persona (being a close friend) this photo to me symbolizes her freedom and open caring mind to the world and every one in it.
RECESS IS OVER
The photo is meant to conceptualize a school girl whom is a bit of a day dreamer and not one to follow the rules. I believe that subconsciously I’ve interpreted my childhood here.
Let’s not jump to any conclusions. Maybe they just want to redecorate the Cupertino campus, and they thought covering the walls in 8Gb (gigabit, not byte) flash chips would be original and visually appealing.
Actually, that’s probably the last possible reason Apple recently placed a massive order for 100 million 8Gb chips from their suppliers…
On May 1, 1947, Evelyn McHale leapt to her death from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Photographer Robert Wiles took a photo of McHale a few minutes after her death.
The photo ran a couple of weeks later in Life magazine accompanied by the following caption:
This is somthing i came across on craigslist, read the whole thing, i think you’ll enjoy it. at the very least it might get you out of Saddle Ranch.
Some of the best times I’ve had in LA are exploring off the path sorts of restaurants and little nooks and crannies in the different parts of town.
Stop by K-Town and find a little Korean restaurant with no English on the menu. There are a dozen or so great ones. Then head down to Little Hanoi and try some Vietnamese food. Go over to Fairfax and try all 3 of the Ethiopian restaurants. The one with the crazy lady who practically drags you in off the street is great, and so is the one run by the guy who thinks hes a sultan with his harem of serving girls.
Head over ot China town…
The problem with our country is that we have too many people worrying about what others do, and we pick out certain “sins” to persecute and ignore the others.
Take this for example, churches don’t want gay people because they are “sinners”. Well, gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, so should we kick fat people out of church because they are sinners. Show me someone who is not a “sinner” and i will show you a liar.
I say, live your life the best you can, and focus on making you a better person. and whatever religion you believe in, ask yourself if your saviour would want you to judge, persecute or hate others for any reason. Seriously. Ask yourself that…
