Some photos of meine Liebling that I took this afternoon. :)
careers to consider when I finish uni:
- girl in 1960s Paris with winged eyeliner and a fringe who sits in cafes and bars and drinks sherry
- WWII war nurse
- muse for a late 19th century artist
- archaeologist in the 30s
- background character in a Wodehouse story
For me, definitely brilliant and attractive architect and minister of armaments- I’ll even have the right degree for it!
"When you get in that thing, you fire it up… there’s no question- you’re not in a modern car. It’s a totally different beast. It’s just you, a big, race-driven engine, four tires and wheels, and some metal. It’s a completely different experience."
— My dad, on driving a classic Porsche, as related to me at dinner tonight.
I read this in his voice; it rings so true! Let me guess, he was gesturing with his hands and knocked over his drink while he talked?
Well, he didn’t quite knock over his ice water, but you’ve got the general idea!
"I’m slowly starting to feel old. I think 30 is one of those first milestones when you drive through a village and see the 30mph sign. It’s that constant reminder going I am actually quite old…but I don’t feel too old. I think I’m always young at heart" - Prince Harry
Happy 30th Birthday, Harry!
God love him, he’s all grown up and being sensible at last!
Happy Birthday Harry!
Harry is definitely my favorite British royal, hands down!
I would stay on to post more photos that I found this afternoon, but I’ve had a really exhausting past few days and I’ll feel better if I get a good night’s sleep. Tomorrow, though, I’ll get my blog back up to date.
Grand staircase in the Administration area of the Kirkbride building at Hudson River State Hospital during nautical twilight, with nearly-full-moon light shining in through the window. With civil twilight over before I could get this shot perfectly composed, I decided to guess on a 15 minute exposure for the final shot of the day, with the blue-hour light mixing with the moonlight - and this is what came out. This 1867 Frederick Clarke Withers building is mostly in horrible shape, but this particular section has held up rather well in the past 147 years.
Went and looked at a motorcycle today. It’s not exactly what I want, but for a first bike that I’ll ride for a couple of years (and then sell in order to buy a vintage BMW) it looks like a good choice.
