i found cary norton‘s collection of beard photos on flickr…

… which lead me to the official website of whiskerino:

Beards used to be glorified as signs of virility and manliness… In early America, men that could not grow facial hair were demeaned less advanced and uncivilized. Now we have come full circle where our own society promotes this emasculated version of maleness. Where to be a man is to be clean-shaved; to be respectable is not to have a beard. Let us return to our roots! Let us return to true masculinity! Let us cry out with one voice:

“I WILL HAVE A BEARD!! I WILL BE A MAN!! I WILL NOT CONFORM TO YOUR RULES!”

:D

i’m lucky enough to own a few signed original prints by obie oberholzer (thanks to a generous friend), and this one is by far my favourite – both sweet and sad.

please appreciate these photos by maren celest, as they are excellent. the bearded man + trees double exposure is just amazing… (on film, not photoshopped) i would blow it up to a meter wide and hang it on my wall for posterity.

le picnique

picnics might usually be associated with spring & summer, but autumn in the winelands (and south africa in general) is pretty much perfect outdoor weather in my mind. you can sit in the sun without getting hot, i mean – what’s better than that? yesterday i was driving with the window down and there was that yummy autumn smell in the air… it made me think about times spent lazing the day away on the grass somewhere. preferably eating some kind of cheese.

water wheel

as a kid one of my favourite things in my parent’s display shelf (you know, that place where they put all the strange odds and ends collected throughout a lifetime) was this fake shell belonging to my grandmother, that contained a japanese bonsai garden with a little house and a watermill that actually turned.

my ouma’s odd trinket coupled with the image below of an old mill in colorado (by rob lee) naturally sparked off an image search. who doesn’t love an old watermill? especially on those very rare occassions when you stumble upon an abandoned one in a forest somewhere. {click on the images for their sources}
