Famous Lithuanian artist Valentinas Vankavičius
"Portraits of Piasecki family"
1836-1837 #Vilnius State Art Gallery, #Lithuania 🇱🇹. These portraits show Kazimieras Piasecki, Lithuanian lawyer, an Alumnus of Vilnius University and his wife Sophie Januševičiūtė-Piaseckinė with her children.
Cant find a good caption for this picture but let's imagine that it is from a different century, one of those black and white pictures with unknown people posing in different exotic places. You can still find them in old bookshops and on the back you can read the date and the place.
Many times I think I was born in a wrong century for I have a kind of nostalgia for all the things that were a routine for people back then: travelling by ships, waiting for years to have a portrait (that too black and white, of course), writting letters and so on.
I know it is an irony that I write this from a phone but how many of you would love to go back in time and live a more uncertain but exciting life? What would you enjoy from the past if you would have the chance to live in a different century?
Semina un pensiero e raccoglierai un’azione, semina un’azione e raccoglierai un’abitudine, semina un’abitudine e raccoglierai un carattere, semina un carattere e raccoglierai un destino.

Gulf War Post Part 2: Saddam Hussein originally believed the takeover of Kuwait would be ignored by the rest of the world but was greatly mistaken. Shortly after the initial invasion the United Nations condemned the attack and told Saddam to withdraw his forces, but with this request ignored and the possibility of an Iraqi invasion of the Saudi Arabian Oil Fields, A Coalition Force led by the United States and commanded by American General Norman Schwarzkopf was created and only a week after the Invasion US Troops began arriving in Saudi Arabia along the Kuwait border. This build up of Coalition forces in Saudi Arabia was named Operation Desert Shield, and if the Iraqi military were to refuse to leave Kuwait by Midnight of January the 15th 1991, Desert Shield will evolve into Desert Storm.

I do not know what love is: maybe it is the longing, that familiar place in your heart where your most beautiful moments are stored, where feelings never die, where your life awaits for you night after night. Where you are safe and sheltered.
Maybe it is that moment when a memory jumps out of nowhere and your heart misses a beat. And another one.
I may not know what love is, especially in these past- far too many- years. But I know one thing: I have always loved you; Yemen.
Çok bir zaman geçmedi aslında. Bu fotoğrafı 2012 yılında çektim. Ama bu hali bile özlenir oldu. Şu mevsimde hava kapalı yağmur yağardı. Şimdi damla yok gökyüzünde. Dünya ölüyor. Biz sadece izlemek zorunda kalıyoruz.
The Hants & Dorset route 9 ran from Bournemouth via Westbourne, Branksome, Penn Hill, Spur Hill Avenue and Compton Acres to Canford Cliffs; during the summer the route extended onward from Canford Cliffs to Branksome Chine. This photograph was taken on a winter day in the 1950s and shows JEL 755 ready to leave the old Bournemouth bus station for Canford Cliffs. New to Hants & Dorset in June 1949, JEL 755 was an AEC Regent III carrying a 53 seat NCME lowbridge body. It was one of a batch of six similar buses originally intended for Western Scottish, but instead diverted to Hants & Dorset before delivery. JEL 755 was in service with Hants & Dorset until September 1963.

Jerusalem is a geography of revelation. Jerusalem is the only place where you can see all the Islamic phases after the Islamic conquest seamlessly and vividly. Jerusalem is the place where many Qur'anic stories experienced there.
