not friday, frida

The post title would have made more sense yesterday - on Friday - but I was unable to post photos. Apparently many many people have been having the problem with no help being offered by blogger or google. Sad. Many thanks to the smart people in the blogger forums who have figured a way around it - for now. Thank you. Now the post meant for yesterday...

Wandering around tumblr land tonight, seeing many incredible photos. Some I'd like to post but the thing about tumblr is people just repost images and the only sources sited is the name of the tumblr account they reblogged from. Wouldn't it be nice if everyone gave credit where it is due. Do I sound a tad self-righteous? Came across the top left photo in tumblr land and was awed by it. After much research found the source and the other photos.

A Frida Kahlo-inspired photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar US November 2001
with model Mariacarla Boscono photographed by Nathaniel Goldberg.

The gorgeous photo shoot, of course, reminded me about the incomparable Frida Kahlo.
