One day I will send Harvey Smith a gift for answering all my questions about Dishonored!
I always liked Jessamine, but I had no idea how awesome she really was. She broke all the rules for Corvo! She made him her Royal Protector, even though he was a simple Serkonan soldier! She refused to marry anyone, even though, I’m sure, her advisors were telling her to do so, and suitors were probably storming the Dunwall Tower, fighting for her favor. She stayed true to her only love, she made their child an heir to the throne. And she literally gave Corvo her heart and her soul to guide him, to always be with him!
accidentally made a fanart for Dishonored while playing with brushes.
yep, i’m addicted to this game ◕‿◕
There is a park at the centre of the ancient Japanese capital of Nara. Home to over 1,200 species of sika deer, it was once believed that these deer were considered sacred due to a visit from one of the four gods of Kasuga Shrine, Takenomikazuchi-no-mikoto.
A popular tourist attraction, the deer have learned from the many visitors to this once sacred park that in order to request food, they must bow their heads. This polite act is often rewarded with a Shika-senbei, or a deer cracker.
It’s little things like this that keep a smile on my face.
In WWII only the Soviet air force put women in combat. If they fell into German hands the consequences were too awful to think about.
They struggled to get into the Soviet air force to begin with and once in they faced great difficulty overcoming the unsympathetic attitudes of their male compatriots. And if they came down, and ended up in German hands, the consequences were too awful to think about.
These were very brave and determined people and I want to include them in my body of work on WWII pilots - which so far is all male.
I want to find as many of these women pilots as I can, meet them, interview them and photograph them in the “then and now” style I have used with my male WWII pilots (I have photographed* and interviewed 24 WWII pilots in six countries).
In terms of meeting, interviewing and photographing the pilots I have done this so many times now, I am an old hand at it.
The main problem I have is time. These fine old women are very old now and they will not be with us for much longer. In fact one died last week. So there is a real imperative to get out there and get the job done.
Ideally I would like to present the work in a book, but in order to do this I need more money than I am asking for in this KickStarter project. That is why I am offering the photos and stories of the women pilots in a folio of loose pages of black-and-white now-and-then prints with their respective stories being told in the accompanying eBook. However, if a funding threshold of £8,000 is reached, then I shall present the work in a (conventional) book form as well as an eBook.
there are only 6 hours to go, please help, Tumblr!
