A “cloud angel” rose over South Florida on the day that a new pope was named at the Vatican. Though some would prefer to believe it’s a miracle, experts say it’s a perfectly natural phenomenon. “Pareidolia” is a combination of Greek words that essentially means “wrong shape.” It’s the same phenomenon that gives rise to the Face on Mars, or Mickey Mouse on Mercury. In the case of the cloud angel, the religious connection was heightened by the coincidence of the papal conclave.
this is actually amazing
i’ve never seen anything as stunning as this
True Romance: The Heartache of Wartime Farewells, April 1943 by Alfred Eisenstaedt at the height of the Second World War.
In 1968, during the administration of US President Lyndon B. Johnson, Eartha Kitt encountered a substantial professional setback after she made anti-war statements during a White House luncheon. Kitt was invited to the White House luncheon and was asked by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War. She replied: “You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot.”
During a question and answer session, Kitt stated:
The children of America are not rebelling for no reason. They are not hippies for no reason at all. We don’t have what we have on Sunset Blvd. for no reason. They are rebelling against something. There are so many things burning the people of this country, particularly mothers. They feel they are going to raise sons — and I know what it’s like, and you have children of your own, Mrs. Johnson — we raise children and send them to war.
Her remarks reportedly caused Mrs. Johnson to burst into tears and led to a derailment in Kitt’s career
"while sitting on brighton beach (UK) back in 2005 with my new girlfriend, verity, i thought the view of our feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. ever since then we’ve continued to document our travels in this way, resulting in a collection of over 100 photos. in 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daughter matilda. you can already see her little feet getting bigger and bigger." - text and photos by tom robinson
