In 1947, ten cartoonists drew their most famous characters blindfolded. Best thing since famous authors’ hand-drawn self-portraits, which invariably require a different kind of blindness.

In this photo, Marilyn Monroe is studying her script on the set of her film Bus Stop in 1956. If you look closely above her head, there’s a photo of James Dean. Emily, who runs jamesdeandaily, once told me that James had wanted to audition for Bus Stop (which I never knew!) I don’t know for sure, but knowing Marilyn’s sweet heart, I think she purposely put that photo of him on set as a tribute to him. RIP James Dean (February 8, 1931-September 30, 1955)

ineffable
[in-ef-uh-buhl]
(adjective) In the list of one of the most 100 beautiful words in the English language, ineffable’s beauty lies in its flowing sound and meaning. Ineffable describes the sentiment of being unable to express something in words because it is too extreme to communicate; words cannot possibly do justice at this particular moment.   (via herkindoftea)

I am a self-taught photographer living in the UK. My compositions focus mainly on decisive moments, which have the ability to tell a story and evoke an emotional response from the viewer. Sometimes I happen to be in just the right place at the right time, but often I find the place and wait for the suitable moment and press the shutter to capture life in a fraction of time.
