The name's Will, I've been into photography for on-and-off about 5-6 years. I've also made/make bracelets and earrings from time to time. So I'll be posting mainly those various things, along with the odd mesh of history and leather working. Hope ya enjoy!!
A Pit Bull named Sharky has more animal friends than the average dog. He hangs out in the pool with little chicks, lounges with iguanas, has staring contests with roosters, and takes care of baby bunnies. Source
This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.
I HOPE NO ONE REBLOGS THIS AND CORRECTS THE GOLDFISH THING CAUSE THIS IS JUST TOO ADORABLE TO RUIN WITH FACTS QuQ
“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
