This fruit tells a lot about who I become today! It witness my sufferings, pain, dedication and perseverance during childhood days. It helps me developed what I believed and who I am today. "Life will never be easy to those who are lazy". "Dream Big Dream Big Dream Big"- I still remember those line every time I catch one seed then put it on the basket. I visualize and prepare for my future every moment i am on the top of the tree holding tight on the branches when the mighty wind blew towards me. Hihi
Now little by little I can tell that I'm on my way. Thanks to this fruit " Kasoy" di ako nagsisisi na naging magaspang at matigas tong palad ko ng dahil sa asido mo. Haha. :) #rough#tough#and#still#worthit#rare#but#meaningful#reminiscingthepast
The now infamous work of legendary photographer Otto Bettmann has been colourised for the first time. This piece stands alongside Lunch Atop A Skyscraper as being one of the most iconic images taken in New York in the Twentieth Century.
The photo shows acrobats known as The Jacksons teetering on the edge of The Empire State Building at the height of summer. This was taken three years after the completion of The Empire State Building. At that point the tallest building in the world.
The photo is designed to invoke a feeling of vertigo, but also to gloat at how tall the building was, in the background to the right sits The Chrysler Building, a building that was designed to be the tallest building in the world until The Empire State Building stole its crown.
Bettmann is credited as being the father of the photo archive, amassing tens of thousands of photographs to be hired for use by newspapers and the media.
He is also credited with taking some of the most iconic images of the Twentieth Century, from the horror of the Civil Rights Movement to the rise of a young upstart named Cassius Clay, his work remains one of the finest examples of photographic documentation ever seen.
