Almost every other day I visit the tumblr called Loverofbeauty. And you all should too. I'm sure I've mentioned it before. Almost everything posted on it is something I would like to own and/or hang on my wall. Top of the page today was this beautiful photograph dated to about 1915 of a young Japanese meditating. I eventually tracked it down through various tumblrs to an Ebay sale which ended yesterday. The photograph sold for the healthy sum of $577.
And while I'm recommending blogs, have a look also at the Basel Blog of poet and writer Padraig Rooney whose latest post is about the extraordinarily complicated relationships and marriages of which the photographer Islay Lyons was a part and includes some fascinating photos.
