I do cooking to maintain my girlish (round) figure :D
I have a fiancee and a cat.
"Let me get this straight. You think your client: one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands.. and your plan .. is to blackmail this person? Good luck :)"
Waiting for chicken to thaw and the grill to heat up, marathoning the two newest Batman movies. Apply this quote to any scenario wherein one entity decides to take advantage of another without first doing its due diligence. There have been SEVERAL this year I can rattle off without thinking too hard.
I’m relatively certain that one could put together a real working algorithm on the frequency and speed at which comments made on the internet in reference to a girl with /(perky)?cleavage|boobs/ showing in any regard will, much like godwins law, eventually “lean over” far enough to fall over and become “a bunch of people hitting on a girl”.
Also, sorry non-regex people for the regex. it means “perky is optional, cleavage or boobs”.
“It’s like traveling in a time pocket, in a period of history where photographers were a welcomed part of life and portrayed it artistic and real. Somewhere between the time where cameras became mobile in 1920 and before they became obstructive in the 1970ies. There’s a distinct difference between “standing behind a camera and looking at life” and being part of the scene.”
Taken from Thorsten Overgaard’s blog reviewing the (insanely awesome) leica m9 camera. (http://www.overgaard.dk/leica-M9-digital-rangefinder-camera-page-2.html). This quote really struck home with me because of my experiences carrying a camera around. I get one of three typical responses when people notice my camera: 1) they ask me about it, not knowing anything about cameras, and ask for advice for buying ‘starter’ cameras for their children (this happened yesterday, in fact, while I had my d3s slung over my arm) 2) they threaten legal action or to call the police, to which I normally react kindly asking them to find me a sign or some posting somewhere saying what I’m doing is not permitted (which they never can) or 3) they gleefully jump in front of the camera, posing and smiling and trying to be the center of attention - this usually happens when theres some eh/okay/moderately-pretty girl in the room who absolutely has to be the center of attention and DEMANDS photos.
This quote above really kicked me in the ass - why cant photographers be around to just “record life?”. Seriously. What the fuck?
