my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death
Tamara Dean, who is amazing Australian photographer, says “Very happy to receive the news that my portrait of Neil Gaiman is a finalist in the ‘National Photographic Portrait Prize’!”
I am impressed and proud of her. I love these photographs. I was incredibly tired, the wind did the strangest things to my hair, and I was being photographed in a back alley behind my publishers in Sydney… and somehow everything worked: the light, the wind, the way the back alley transmuted itself into a futuristic backdrop, even the tiredness helped, because I just did whatever Tamara asked without thinking about what was happening. I hope she wins the National Photographic Portrait Prize, but even if she doesn’t, so thrilled for her that it was a finalist.
daily reminder not to reblog missing people posts unless you actually know who the person in the photo is and that they really are missing, there are shitheads out there who look for people hiding from them. an abusive husband found his wife and child through such a post. they were under protected identity but he found them through a missing person post online.
holy shit noted
