Tire Swing - Kimya Dawson
I took the Polaroid down in my room
I’m pretty sure you have a new girlfriend
It’s not as if I don’t like you
It just makes me sad whenever I see it
'cause I like to be gone most of the time
And you like to be home most of the time
If I stay in one place I lose my mind
I’m a pretty impossible lady to be with
DONT B AFRAID TO B URSELF OK?? BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT, NOT EVERYONE IS GONNA LIKE U OR WHAT YA DO BUT #fuckem 🐰
Looking through #viewfindersofthepast with @littlecoal
For more perspective-bending photos from vintage camera owners around the world, browse the #viewfindersofthepast hashtag. To see more of Eric’s life in Ohio through the lens of his Bosley, follow @littlecoal on Instagram.
When Ohio schoolteacher and Instagrammer Eric Ward (@littlecoal) received an old film camera that had belonged to his wife’s grandfather, the connection was instantaneous. “I immediately fell in love with the glass and the unique feel you get looking down through a viewfinder of that age,” he says. “I imagined all that he had seen through the same viewfinder and wanted to find a way to continue what he had started.”
Eric continues that story on Instagram with his camera, a Bolsey Model C Twin Lens Reflex from the 1950s with a top-down viewfinder. By taking a photo from above with his phone, Eric discovered he could capture two subjects at once: the camera itself and what the camera “sees” through its lens. “For me, it connected the camera’s past with today’s reality,” he says.
He started the #viewfindersofthepast hashtag to keep track of the photos he was taking, and over time it took off in the community. “Others have started to add photos from a variety of other film cameras,” he says, “which I think is perfect!”
Beth Cavener Stichter and Alessandro Gallo Collaborate on Ornate Sculpture
One of my favorite sculptors of all time
Same^^^, I found out about her in 2008 and she’s been my absolute favourite artist since. It’s amazing to have seen her work and talent as an artist grow in the past few years…
Seriously continue to be amazed and in awe of Beth Stichter’s work. She’s an absolute inspiration. <3
Henrik Isaksson Garnell - Apsis (2011)
"An apsis, plural apsides, is the point of greatest or least distance of a body from one of the foci of its elliptical orbit. In modern celestial mechanics this focus is also the centre of attraction, which is usually the centre of mass of the system. Historically, in geocentric systems, apsides were measured from the centre of Earth.
The bedrock basic stratum of reality is irreality; the universe is irrational because it is built not on mere shifting sand — but on that which is not.”
"If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad."
