Mexico’s ski racing uniform wins the Olympics.
As soon as I saw him I knew I had to know more about him. Besides having the best uniform, Hubertus von Hohenlohe, Mexico’s only athlete at the Winter Olympics, turns out he’s quite a character full of surprises.
- He’s a 55 year old German prince whose grandfather, Kaiser Franz II, was the last Holy Roman emperor. He was born in Mexico, that’s why he can represent the country - He is fluent in five languages - An artist himself, he friended Andy Warhol at Studio 54 - He is the heir to an automobile fortune. His father introduced Volkswagen into Mexico - He is a musician who has put out eight records so far, including this 2013 track “Higher Than Mars”  - He will be the second-oldest winter Olympian in history when he hits the Sochi slopes in his mariachi-inspired uniform.
Mind blown.

¡Ay, caramba! :)

During her legendary final photo shoot with Bert Stern - The Last Sitting - Monroe crossed out the negatives that she didn’t want published with a marker.






This is interesting, but not that unusual. Most contact sheet image selections were done this way. No different than in Lightroom these days. I might have kept Row 1-1 and Row 2-3 for further examination as well :)

The Big Bang Theory - The Convention Conundrum (Preview)

After the guys can’t get Comic-Con tickets, Sheldon tries to hold his own convention and winds up spending a wild night with James Earl Jones. Meanwhile, the girls see if they can act like “grown-ups”

This could be really funny :D

Sometimes I can’t remember what I had for dinner a couple of days ago, but I clearly remember this editorial image of Elle MacPherson from way  back in the day shot by Gilles Bensimon. Wasn’t my fave image of the set but pretty cool.

Russian courtiers dressed in traditional and historical Russian costume for the Romanov Anniversary Ball in 1903.

The two top ones must have inspired Queen Amidala’s costumes in SW Ep1. and the top right face looks like Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother (QEII’s mom).

Had an outside of the box photo idea ‘lightbulb moment’ just now. Just need an abandoned or empty space, a nude model to be my muse, and a pretty cheap accessory. And maybe for it to be warmer.(unknown who made this graphic, uncredited on tumblr)
