When I was 15, my Dad and I went to Seattle on April 5th to visit the park beside Kurt Cobain’s house. I wandered around with my Polaroid camera, taking these pictures in an almost daze. Nirvana was it for me - smack dab in the midst of those inexplicable years, Kurt’s voice and lyrics did for me what they do for everyone else. I felt like I knew him, like he had been an old friend. It was eerie standing steps away from where he took his last breath, wrote his last words. Today, ten years later, I took these photos out of my scrapbook and scanned them to share. I’ll definitely be playing Nirvana a little louder today.
Great egret (Ardea alba), in Norfolk, Virginia. Male egrets are responsible for most nest construction. They will present building materials to their mates for approval before weaving them into their coarse nests. Finished nests will be up to three feet wide (90 cm) and a foot deep (30 cm).
This bird’s wings are almost fully extended - with a span of about 55 inches (140 cm).
You watched as James hopped from foot to foot in excitement as he brushed his teeth. Bucky had promised when he turned 7 he would be able to go to Coney Island and ride all the rides. Bucky had asked you to come but when James heard he pouted. He just wanted a man’s day no mommies allowed.
So you agreed to stay home and let the boys have their fun. As Bucky checked his pocket for his phone and wallet, you told James to behave and stay with his dad at all times. “He’ll be fine doll, I got this under control. Ya don’t need to worry.”
You followed your boys as they headed out the door, “Don’t let him eat too much junk food! Make sure the seatbelt on every ride is secure! And make sure that you take breaks, and drink water.”
Bucky unlocked the car for James allowing him to jump in and get buckled, “Doll I swear I will bring our son back in one piece. Don’t worry I got this! I love you. Now go relax.”
After pecking your pouting lips, he ran to the car, jumping in and pulling away. You make a face when you realize neither of them even waved or looked back.
A/N: This list keeps me writing new things! Hope y’all enjoy. XOXO
Ruby is a master of sex. And not just the actual fucking part. She’s a master at figuring out what turns someone on, at seduction, at reading men and giving them exactly what they want, at figuring out how to get exactly what she wants.
And good fucking with Sam comes pretty easily, because he’s a master, too.
Still, Ruby prides herself on being able to figure out people’s kinks. Sam has a few, some dirtier than others, but only one that’s surprising.
This odd-looking tree in the middle of the vast Utah salt desert is called Metaphor: Tree of Utah. Seeming out of place in a wide stretch of the Bonneville Salt Flats, it’s actually a 90-foot-tall concrete sculpture built in 1986 by Swedish artist Karl Momen. He wanted to bring a little bit of greenery to a rather treeless stretch of land.
The chain-link fence encircling the sculpture is to keep visitors from being hit by falling tiles.
