Jay Z and Meek Mill, photographed during a party at the Roc Nation offices celebrating Meek’s second studio album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart, on July 8, 2015. In true RN style on the menu was gourmet cupcakes and bottles of Armand de Brignac. They later headed to the Madison Square Garden with Fabolous to watch Kevin Hart perform.

Hov is wearing a Givenchy “I Feel Love” t-shirt ($460), a Hoorsenbuhs “Gold New York City Ring” 18kt yellow gold double ring ($12,500) and a Hublot “Shawn Carter Classic Fusion” yellow gold timepiece ($33,900) from his 2013 Barneys x SC “A New York Holiday” collection, and a Wes Lang x The Great Frog “Indian Chief” 18kt gold ring embellished with diamonds ($ on request).

One of the most interesting and oddly important secondary features of Euro Truck Simulator 2 is the ability to listen to real European radio while driving. While this ultimately doesn’t alter play in any significant fashion, it does draw the player into the experience through what is ultimately a superfluous feature. It makes this feel like a truck, and more importantly, like a long distance drive.

“Anna had been preparing for this meeting, she had thought of what she was going to tell him, but she did not manage to say any of it: his passion seized her. She wanted to calm him, to calm herself, but it was too late. His feeling communicated itself to her. Her lips trembled so that for a long time she could not say anything.”

Anna Karénina (2013)

Do you know when you made it big? :-)

Goodale State Park 03, B&W 2 – Camden, SC, November 2013

You have to do the work. You can’t admire the work, be a fan of the work, affirm the value of the work, talk about doing the work. You have to DO the work.

You can’t be a photographer, or a poet, or a farrier without doing what photographers, or poets, or farriers do.

I regularly run into people in some scene who don’t know how to use their cameras. And this includes camera phones.

There are only two steps in knowing how to use a camera: Read the manual and practice.

They want to be a photographer without doing the work photography requires. They want to take pretty pictures without bothering to learn how to use their camera.

We don’t want to do the work! We don’t want to work! We just want it to be given to us. Why can’t it just be given to us? Why do we have to work?

All the whining only puts it off.

We are here to do the work that is ours to do with the gifts, and art, and genius, and proclivities, and aptitudes, that came with us from the womb.

Well?
