But what about the photographer’s clothes? And this isn’t a matter of how professional you look in front of your clients. It’s all about …

Irving Penn: Centennial | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Irving Penn: Centennial, opening April 24, 2017, will be the most comprehensive exhibition of the great American photographer's work to date and will include both masterpieces and hitherto unknown prints from all his major series.

1. “I wanted to see what it would feel like,” she said, “if a community of women exclusively created a piece of art together.”

2. “The eyes on us are often much more judgmental, and the eyes on us are often much more unforgiving,” the director Mira Nair explained in the documentary series “The 4%: Film’s Gender Problem.” She added, “The so-called mistakes that are absolved in several male directors — oh, you know, that was a bad movie for him, he’ll be up to better — are not the same standards that are handed out to women.”

Stone Soup
"Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing?. The travelers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavor, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all." Wikipedia<br><br>My added ingredients on a number of topics of personal interest.
