I just realized that this photo got a nice blue tag, and promptly choked on my drink: it was a #Fashion blue tag. Behold Ara Güler, the great fashion photographer.
I have many snarky comments at the tip of my tongue, but you know what? Screw that. Ara Güler happens to be one of my favourite photographers of all time, and the more people get a glimpse of his work, by whatever route, the better. My thanks to the editors, and yay for blue tags!
We’ll resume tomorrow or when sober again, whichever comes last. Birthday wish: I wish Amanda Palmer would sing “Pirate Jenny” with Alan Moore’s lyrics. Can someone please make that happen?
She sits there calm, while outside there’s alarm,
and you have your first moment of doubt
when you notice that she’s smiling through her bruises
and you think “Christ, what’s she got to smile about?”
And the ship, the black raider
is announced on the wharfside
by a scream from without.
