In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.
Storyboard artist and scribbler Marty Cooper uses sharpies and white out to draw mischievous cartoon characters on transparent film, which enables him to pose and photograph them interacting with the real world in all sorts of unexpected ways. By playing with perspective Cooper’s drawings sometimes appear to be both giant - like the polar bear scratching his back on the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco - and tiny - like an anthropomorphic banana hitching a ride on a llama.

One day in Disneyland I decided to hunt down all the Princesses because I was so inspired with this photo series “#followmeto.” So I present to you the DISNEY PRINCESS VERSION OF IT!
It took me a day to find 8 of them, and two of them took me the next day because all the Princesses leave once the sun goes down in Disneyland. BUT I HAD A BLAST WITH ALL OF THEM! I HAD SO MUCH FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN with these photoshoots. If you want me to post the ones with the Classic characters and the other ones too just message me! PLEASE DON’T REPOST! JUST REBLOG! OR IF YOU DO, JUST TAG, @frncissdominc! I HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY THESE AS MUCH AS I HAVE TAKEN THEM! :D!
My wife and I just had our African wedding celebration with her side of the family. It was off the charts.
This is too adorable
it felt like i knew you…, 2012 - ongoingI ride the NYC subway trains, usually in the evening when the seats are full. I focus on the shape of the space between the person sitting next to me and myself. I attempt to mentally and emotionally re-sculpt that space. In my mind, I reshape it- from the stiff and guarded space between strangers to the soft and yielding space between friends. I direct all my energy to this space between us. When the space palpably changes, and I completely feel like the stranger sitting next to me is my friend, I rest my head on that person’s shoulder…
This is awesome.

this is one of the cutest, best narratives in an editorial I’ve seen in a while.
Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
