An excellent occasion to acquire a true little gem: A signed (or estate stamped) photo by one of the photographers from the illustrious Magnum agency, for $100 a print only.
Such as Steve McCurry’s work, pictured above.
It is not just the beauty of the image, but the story that comes with it definitely adds to it. I simply l o v e browsing the images, reading the stories, connecting to the slices of life – or imagination, for that matter.
The story behind (the tipping point of) the golden rock above is this:
“Pilgrims from all over Myanmar have visited the magical Golden Rock at Kyaiktiyo Pagoda for centuries. It is burnished with prayers and gold leaf applied by devotees. According to legend, a single strand of hair from the Buddha’s head keeps the rock balanced precariously on the edge of a precipice.”
Today started with the sad news of Eddie Van Halen’s death. The immortal master of the crazy genius guitar riffs. Happy Hard Rock someone coined it on the radio, trying to catch in words the joy and natural ease of EVH’s play.
This song I carry with me ever since my very first iPhone (2008). At the time, starting the day needed a little oompf 😉
