Is there a reason that you post photos as text posts? I'm just curious is all. I'm not like angry or anything. I'm just curious.

Because there is a photo upload limit per day. We use the photo option at first and once limit is reached we use the text option. We have decided to do that instead of stopping the updates and wait for the next day. That will be a lot of work for us. Yeah, I know it sucks but we don’t have a choice. So I’m hoping everyone will understand.

Six years ago, the 60-year-old Wang Yanfang opened a home for dogs in Weinan, China. She felt sorry for all the homeless dogs that were in the city and was given permission by the authorities to open the shelter funded entirely by gifts. The dogs would otherwise be captured by the authorities and killed.
There are now four women in their 60s who works there and takes care of the entire 1300 dogs existing at the animal shelter. The women wake up at 4am every morning to start preparing the 400-kg dog food used per day.

hello friends


everyone seems very confused to how SM is releasing f(x)’s Red Light teaser photos so this is just to clear it up! They’re releasing 13 teaser photos of one member per day, starting at 9AM KST and ending at 9PM KST. The photos are dropped by the dot on the hour :D

Since they started with krystal’s teaser photos first, then ssul’s, i’m assuming that the photos are released by age (seniority in the group). So if this is anything to go by, the order that the photos are being released in is: krystal, sulli, luna, amber, victoria.

have fun guys don’t die we’re all excited dammit. (guys please do correct me if anything here is wrong!)

I’m from Portugal and currently studying painting. My favorite types to shoot are candid, portraits and travel photography. Though I mostly work with my Canon camera, I’m really into analogic and other more tradicional methods.

You can see my work here 
In 2014 I’m starting a project that will make me shoot everyday and post one photo per day. I really hope you enjoy my work!

Lui è Elio. Torno in via San Lorenzo. A sinistra un artista di strada canta Clandestino, canzone di Manu Chao, a destra noto una striscia blu. Sono una serie di quadri raffiguranti mari in tempesta e barche: una barca a quadro, non di più. Clandestino e barca, mi incuriosisce la connessione, e la seguo. Così incontro lui, vestito di eleganza con un volto che sa di esperienza e vita vissuta. Accetta in un attimo, senza esitare. E in venti minuti mi regala anni di esperienza, profondità e consapevolezza. Ci mette poco a mostrarmi un’altra sua opera. È un libro, in copertina ci sono due figure: sono sue. Gli chiedo di descriversi come fosse quelle figure, di diventare quelle figure, e lo fa: …sono giovane, insicuro e senza certezze, perso in un vagabondare incerto…qui invece sono sereno, presente e stabile, finalmente ho trovato il mio terreno: la pittura, la strada. Credo rappresenti il percorso della Vita. Nell'incontrarlo mi accorgo abbandonato alle sue parole, un po’ come fossi su quelle barche che a prima vista parlano di solitudine, ma trascinato sulle onde sento solo comprensione e accoglienza. L’impressione è che si tratti di una solitudine riassaporata attraverso il ricordo. Ri - cor - do= ri do al cuore. Mi piace vederlo come un processo cognitivo di riconsegna al cuore. E lì, tra i passanti, mi dimentico di tutto, nel vedere quel volto che poco prima appariva oscuro, ma che in realtà accoglie e impreziosisce ogni parola. Ho insegnato Architettura all'Università, e ora sono qui, per strada…sai, nella strada incontri il peggio, il disdicevole. Ma anche il sublime. Il fascino della Strada, per come la vedo io incontri la vita. …non ti dimenticare di te, nelle foto che fai. Perché fai una sola foto al giorno? Perché non voglio vivere un solo giorno di quest’anno senza farlo. ah…splendido…un po’ come leggere una poesia: ne puoi leggere una, poi devi respirare. Me ne vado, non ho bisogno di ricordare, è già tutto lì. 

Solo voy con mi pena, Sola va mi condena, Correr es mi destino, Para burlar la ley, Perdido en el corazon, De la grande Babylon, Me dicen el clandestino, Por no llevar papel.

This is Elio. I’m back in Via San Lorenzo. On my left a street artist is singing a song by Manu Chao, Clandestino, on my right I notice a blue line. It’s a series of paintings depicting sea storms and boats: one boat per painting, no more. Clandestine and boat, I’m intrigued by the connection, and I follow it. So I meet him, clothed in elegance,  with a face reminding me of knowledge and life lived. He accepts right away, with no hesitation. And in twenty minutes he gives me years of experience, depth and self-awareness. It takes him very little to show me another work of his. It’s a book, on the cover there are two figures: he made them. I ask him to describe himself as if he were one of those figures, to become those figures, and he does it: I’m young, insecure and with no certainties, lost in an uncertain meandering… whereas here I’m serene, present and solid, I’ve finally found my field: painting, the street. I believe it represents the path of Life. In this encounter I find myself lost in his words, as if I were on one of those boats, which at a first glance have a lonely look about them, but carried away by the waves I only feel comprehension and welcome. The impression is that it’s a kind of loneliness savored through memories. Memory, Ricordo:  Ri - cor - do = Ri do al cuore, I give back to the heart [TN: The word ‘memory’ in Italian is 'ricordo’,  from the Latin verb recordari (=to remember): ’re’=back, again and 'cor’=heart, as the heart was considered to be the home of memories]. I like to see it as a cognitive path bringing the memories back to the heart. And there, among the passers-by,  I forget everything, looking at that face that just a moment earlier had appeared dark to me, and which is instead welcoming and enriches every word. I’ve taught Architecture at university, and now I’m here, on the street… you know, on the streets you meet the worst, the unseemly. But also the sublime. The appeal of the Street; as I see it, you meet Life.  Don’t forget yourself, in the pictures you take. Why do you take just one photo per day? - Because I don’t want to live a single day of this year without doing it - Oh, wonderful… it’s just like reading a poem: you can read one, then you need to breathe. I leave, I don’t need to remember, everything is already there.
Solo voy con mi pena, Sola va mi condena, Correr es mi destino, Para burlar la ley, Perdido en el corazon, De la grande Babylon, Me dicen el clandestino, Por no llevar papel.
