The ghosts of Paris— ‘Time Frame’ a photoseries by New York based photographer Matthew Pillsbury. The images capture the passage of time itself in interiors of the Louvre, Palais Garnier, and Sainte Chapelle. His long exposure photographs were initially inspired by Hiroshi Sugimoto's works. Pillsbury has poignantly stated, “Much of photography is an attempt to stop the clock—to assert our presence: ‘I was here, I matter.’ Here, my photographs are doing something different: We are shown the fragility and fleeting nature of our presence.”
"It was long the case that men would grovel upon the
crushed beneath the weight of Superstition whose head
loomed in the heavens, glaring down with her dreadful
until Epicurus of Greece dared to look up and confront her,
taking a stand against the fables and myths of the gods
with their stories of those impending thunderbolts from
and the vengeful roar of the skies that merely provoked
and strengthened his will to defy them and shatter the bars
of the cage
where Nature was kept in confinement."

I can see Tumblr doesn’t know how Hmong gangs operate either. Gran Torino, great movie (if you don’t mind Eastwood’s racism). No way he lives past the first night.
