I have a sweet tooth but I’m not a fan of red velvet. It’s just too sweet for me. I remember when I didn’t like chocolate (what?!) and now I luff it! Chocolate returned my love by giving me a hundred pounds.

Real-life Grave of the Fireflies: (Photo) Stoic Japanese orphan, standing at attention having brought his dead younger brother to a cremation pyre, Nagasaki, by Joe O’Donnell 1945
This photograph was taken by an American photojournalist, Joe O’Donnell, in Nagasaki in 1945.
He recently spoke to a Japanese interviewer about this picture:
“I saw a boy about ten years old walking by. He was carrying a baby on his back. In those days in Japan, we often saw children playing with their little brothers or sisters on their backs, but this boy was clearly different. I could see that he had come to this place for a serious reason. He was wearing no shoes. His face was hard. The little head was tipped back as if the baby were fast asleep.
“The boy stood there for five or ten minutes. The men in white masks walked over to him and quietly began to take off the rope that was holding the baby. That is when I saw that the baby was already dead. The men held the body by the hands and feet and placed it on the fire.
“The boy stood there straight without moving, watching the flames. He was biting his lower lip so hard that it shone with blood. The flame burned low like the sun going down. The boy turned around and walked silently away.”
Something I’ve been obsessed with lately, and really want to learn how to do… bokeh. Its when you take a photograph and because the depth of field is so short, points of light in the background go out of focus. You apparently can do this by adding a lens blur effect on only the selected background of an image in Photoshop, but I really want to learn how to do this by myself on the new DSLR Cannon camera I’m getting for christmas. Yesssss!
:) these are great shots. Loving the Christmas feeling
