I blog what i love, what i love is what i blog.
"If you do what you believe in and you live the way you want to live, you will be the happiest person you could possibly be."
"Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought it would get the happiness inside him. Many people thought he was mad and stupid for doing so because the paint was toxic, never mind that it was obvious that eating paint couldn’t possible have any direct correlation to one’s happiness, but I never saw that. If you were so unhappy that even the maddest ideas could possible work, like painting the walls of your internal organs yellow, than you are going to do it. It’s really no different than falling in love or taking drugs. There is a greater risk of getting your heart broken or overdosing, but people still do it everyday because there was always that chance it could make things better. Everyone has their yellow paint."
Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. Someone sober will worry about things going badly. Let the lover be. - Rumi
Pablo Picasso photographed in his studio near Cannes, France in 1956. The Thonet rocking chair in the distance appears in many of his paintings.
Norman Parkinson was exactly what you would imagine and hope a fashion photographer in the second half of the 20th Century would be - dapper, exacting, a little louche, and unerringly orientated towards beauty.
