The Cliff House

"The Cliff House was severely damaged by a dynamite explosion when the schooner, Parallel, ran aground. The blast was heard a hundred miles away and demolished the entire north wing of the tavern. The building was repaired, but was later completely destroyed on Christmas night 1894 due to a defective flue. The Cliff House survived the 1906 earthquake with little damage but burned to the ground on the evening of September 7, 1907.

The house overlooks the site of the former Sutro Baths and a room-sized camera obscura and is now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, operated by the National Park Service." (from Mute The Silence)

I found this interesting story at Magda Mortisia's blog Mute The Silence, and it hit me right away. I love old stories, and specially the ones acompanied by old black and white photographs. There is something very special about old photographs. I don't know why I love it so much, it's just so special to actually have a photograph of an age so long ago.

I know this antique shop where they sell old books and old papers. They also sell old postcards (which was written on and sent late in the 1800's.) and photoalbums from early 1900's. When I have the time and money I'll go there and get one of my favorite photographs printed in larger versions. I need old black and white photographs on my walls. Photos of people I have no idea who was.

(Thanks for allowing me to reblog you, Magda ♥)

baby of mine

I går var Baileys litt nedfor. Jeg tror kanskje han følte seg litt dårlig. Nå er han ihvertfall i sitt ess. Superkosete og søvnig. Emma er nettopp ferdig med sin aller første løpetid. Nå bøller hun rundt som aldri før. Jeg likte henne bedre som supermasete mjaue-jente.

wishes.

10 Challanges



1. Live on fruit and vegs for a month.
2. Exercise every day for a month.
3. Write 1000 sayings.
4. Walk 10 000+ steps every day in a month.
5. Eat lowcarb for a month (without meat).
6. Photograph my feet for 100 days. (Travelling feet).
7. Don't spend any money for a month.
8. Write down all my dreams.
9. Draw something every day for a month.
10. Don't eat refined sugar for a month.

Åååh, jeg måå gjøre disse. Jeg røk på sukker-greia. Men jeg trener jo hver dag, så jeg kunne jo begynt å telle ned. Åh, denne lista er egentlig finest å beundre og å ønske å gjennomføre. Jeg føler meg for tiltaksløs til å få det helt til. Jeg spiser litt kjøtt, jeg spiser litt sukker. Jeg trener ofte, jeg skriver opp alle drømmer jeg husker, jeg tar bilder men ikke av meg selv. Jeg bruker ikke mye penger for tiden og jeg går mange turer. Hvis jeg bare begynner å notere ned når/hva/ og hvor så kan jeg jo kanskje ha gjennomført noen av dem før jeg vet ordet av det.

Sayings er forresten disse kunnskaps-ordene jeg skriver opp. Jeg tror jeg nærmer meg 200, men 1000 er fremdeles veeldig langt unna.

Er det noen av disse utfordringene du kunne tenke deg å prøve ut?

Academy Award 2012 - favorite dress

Jessica Chastain wore the most beautiful dress last night, in my opinion. Gwyneth Paltrow's dress was gorgeous too, but Chastain's dress was perfect on her. (Alexander McQueen design)

Salvador Dalí

"Salvador Dali is considered as the greatest artist of the surrealist art movement and one of the greatest masters of art of the twentieth century. During his lifetime the public got a picture of an bizarre paranoid. His personality caused a lot of controversy..."

Dalí is one of my favorite artists of all time. His art, his personality, his story. Everything is of great interest to me. This is a documentary about him. I'll let it speak for itself.

I'm watching the Oscar Academy Awards 2012 at the moment. I just finished watching my favorite movie of all time The tree of Life. I'm reeeeally hopeing that it will win the awards it's nominated for. Best director, best picture and best cinematography.

I know I've blogged alot about this film, but seriously. Watch it. It's art.
