The purpose is to reblog, drool over art, squeal at fan-made stuff and entertain self. So Rawr!!
Beautiful modern vintage portraits just love the life in these three drawings. I could go half a day just building a character and fictional life for these three.

"Tom and I had been debating whether to "play" an injury, after he was thrown. I wasn’t convinced it would work. So, in a run through of the fight - with the rest of the cast present, who hadn’t been privy to our conversation - Tom landed from the throw and faked the injury. It worked wonderfully and the rest of the cast liked it, so I conceded that Tom was right. Tom had a broad grin for the rest of the day." (x)

Perhaps you prefer one of your new companions…
#that awkward and very arousing moment when you realize just how well tom is filling in that suit#he’s not scrawny#which is why sometimes i can’t even read Loki fics because they make him out to be so skinny and weak#and i’m like no dude#LOOK AT HIM#look at this fucker#he is 6 foot 2#and covered in lean muscle#that suit fits him just as well as it does Chris#it fits him DIFFERENTLY#because his body structure isn’t so wide#but it still fits him deliciously (via tom-sits-like-a-whore)

These photos by a mother in Russia are floating around the internet a lot lately… so I’d thought I’d post some insight.
They’re amazing images, great editing, great composition…but what I’d argue is that one of the things that make them so great is the lens! She shot these photos primarily with Canon’s most underrated L-series lens, the 135mm. Over the past year this has become my favorite lens to bring along to shoots. The reason? It’s lighter and smaller than our 70-200, it’s sharper than any lens we own, it’s extremely “fast” (good in low light and for dramatic depth of field) at 2.0, and well… it’s just magical really!
The key to the 135mm lens isn’t what it does, it’s what you do with it. I’ve found out a secret lately that I’m going to share with you! The key to shooting with this lens is to get dirty…that’s right. Lie on the ground.
I snagged this technique from the infamous Meg Bitton of Meg Bitton Photography. She didn’t outright say it on her blog, but she posted a review of one of her workshops. It was there that I noticed a picture of all the photographers…flat on the ground!
This made me think…why did they do this. Then it clicked. With a long lens–I’m talking 135mm and higher–you’re going to always get some epic depth of field behind your subject. To take this DOF to the next level, create depth in front of your subject by putting something in your foreground. Laying on your face is one amazing way to do this, you’ll get dirty, but it’s worth it every time. Go try this NOW with the longest lens you can get your hands on, if you’re looking to get one, the 135 one of the best and most affordable L-series lens out there! if you’re crazy like Meg, go for the 300mm 2.8. YIKES, look at that price tag! I would love to own that lens someday!
Hope this helps you take your photography to the next level! Don’t tell your friends though…it’s our little secret :)

Mr. Bielecki and Ms. Cybulska fell in love and escaped from Auschwitz together. They were then separated in the midst of World War II. While talking with her Polish cleaning woman in 1982, Ms. Cybulska related her Auschwitz escape story. The stunned maid said she had heard Mr. Bielecki tell the same story on Polish TV. She then helped Ms. Cybulska find Mr. Bielecki in Poland. In the summer of 1983, they met at the Krakow airport. He brought 39 red roses, one for each year they had spent apart.

“It doesn’t matter if I have to go through some terrible hardship in order to play the part as long as the whole is inspiring and has a good impact. The reason I’m here, the reason I became an actor is because, sat there in the audience, my world was once changed by a film or by a piece of theatre; something like The Remains of the Day—which I just think is such a beautiful film—or The Constant Gardener, or any of the films that Danny Boyle makes. It’s that feeling when you see a film and it’s changed the way you think about something. It’s touched you; there’s something about it that you believe in.”
This is model Robyn Lawley and she is categorized as a “plus size” model. In society today, models are defined by size. Beyond that, Women are defined by size. Beauty is having thigh-gaps, long legs, big eyes, long wavy hair, big boobs and a barbie-doll/ size zero figure. Robyn Lawley (I have so much respect for this woman!) reminded me today about the true meaning of beauty, confidence and loving yourself just the way you are. Note to all the women out there, (myself included), Love the way you are and if you want to change your figure, do it to be healthier and not to fit into a size that society these days think personifies beauty.
