For his recently published picture book Freckles
(Splice Pictures Publishing), the Swiss photographer Reto Caduff
has taken pictures of freckled women all over Europe. His pictures prove: freckles are beautiful. Don’t hide yourself in the shade! I think what I love about this the most is the vast diversity of people who are blessed with freckles. (x)
I have never ever understood why freckles are considered ugly.
Anatomy by Natalia Drepina
I should really get back into drawing as I’m itching to do yet more anatomy based stuff. First I need to get back to drawing lichen though before I get completely distracted.
Within an hour of landing on Sheremetyevo airport I was given the option to go on a ‘Moscow by Night’ tour. Which I then dutifully did. I went about Moscow weary from my flight and hotdamn, Moscow, you are gorgeous.
I WANT TO GOO.

This is a great idea. He should come and do it by the Severn though for pure tidal ridiculousness.
Cornwall, England (by Frank Fischbach)
since when does cornwall look like this
there’s like this one day a year when it isn’t raining
I always laugh at people who move to Cornwall expecting this. You can guarantee that even when it looks like this it’s probably blowing a gale and feels about 10 degrees cooler.
Through The Oculus by Molly Judge
“The cylinder of light defined by the oculus at the apex of the Pantheon, is seen as one of the greatest Roman triumphs in architecture. The oculus has served for many years, in architecture, as the eye that permits light to the architectural form. This concept in turn, motivated a small architectural study that I investigated during a recent tour around Italy, where the circular geometry was utilised as an architectural viewfinder.”

Ooooh, these are pretty. It’s odd how much more pleasing things are when put inside circles sometimes.
I presented cosplayers with a wipe off board, simply reading “Cosplay =/= Consent” and asked them about their experiences of harassment. I was not surprised to hear many horrible stories from women and men alike. These can be as seemingly harmless and annoying as not asking for permission before taking a picture or bothering them for a picture or interview while they were taking a water or food break. But the majority of the stories were more serious and ranged from threats of violence to inappropriate touching, and from lewd facebook messages to stalking.
obviously don’t read the comments, because there are a lot from ~photographer dudes~ who are explaining that taking pictures without asking is how you’re taught to do it in the Real Photography World so it’s okay and cosplayers shouldn’t be upset that people are violating their personal space/safety, because ART.
aka it’s a bunch of whiny shitbags who don’t like having their fun being ruined.
Any photographer I know who has ethics will tell you that these guys are full of shit even in the land of Real Photography.
I was just gonna say that you are generally NOT taught to take photos of people without their consent. like what the fuck, that is not what you’re taught.
I know barely anything about photography and even I know you’re not supposed to take photos of people without their permission. WHAT THE FUCK??
