aggghhh I have soo many ideas for pictures but they all have to wait a week. damnit.

More portraits click here or here (in large on my website) Nikkormat met 50mm f 1,4. Agfa zwart-wit film ontwikkeld in Rodinal Flitslampje (helder) met magnesiumdraad werd gloeiend heet. Nikon had toen een hoger scheidend vermogen dan Leica een doorbraak. Zelf vind ik dit een van beste portretten uit de tijd van de Nikkormat. Het toestel doet het nu nog steeds en heeft nooit een reparatie gehad ondanks intensief gebruik. Films kocht je per rol om dan zelf films van te snijden. Zoek de verschillen met de foto hieronder 39 jaar geleden ontwikkelde ik in de DOKA deze foto. Dit is een scan van die foto. In die tijd was het lastig om het contrast binnen de mogelijkheden van de film en fotopapier te houden. Zelf vind ik dit een van beste portretten uit de tijd van de Nikkormat. Deze kostte in 1976 in chrome uitvoering 850 gulden. ( zwart 910 ) heb de prijslijst nog. Maar dat was alleen de body. De F 1,4 50mm kostte 695 gulden. Mijn 80-200 f=4,5 zoom was nog veel duurder 2085,- gulden Dat was veel meer dan mijn maand inkomen! Maar daardoor hebben we nu nog wel kostbare herinneringen. "Kost wat, maar dan heb je ook wat" gold toen ook al! Nu kreeg ik de kans om dat ca 40 jaar na dato over te doen, nu met een Nikon D7000. Zie de foto hieronder. Weddingshoot. .....

Natural light & just a "splash" of strobe ;)) Model's names: on the sides both are Oana :) and in the middle Andrada & Diana on the right Girls seam to be meaner then boys. But are they ? Usually we are more sentimental and that can bring the worst of someone but I know that boys if want to be bad are great at that. So is this impression because the girls get caught all the time and boys aren't or the girls really are meaner? What I'm sure of is that girls are meaner with each other for no apparent reason and are more jealous. Boys just get to fights to impress and after that they are cool. Also girls would not have real friends that would be there no matter what but boys have that kind of friends in most cases. They stick to each other like glue and that's nice. I'm sure gossipy girls are as often then boys but because girls like to talk all the time they look mean and actually are doing more damage with words (witch is a very powerful tool if we stay and think about it) and boys don't look that mean becacuse they are rationally doing stuff and that is why I'm not sure who is meaner. . . Any way. Usually girls are prettier so enjoy the girls above. They look friendly to me ;)) exif info:here

Before I could ask the mother od these two Chinese Miracles thrust them in front of me saying "look, look". Twins are a blessing in China and she wouldn't take no for an answer, not that I wanted to say no mind you! She wants a copy of the photo but I have no idea where she lives. I'll try carry a copy around when I next go there!
Roodharigendag in Breda - Redhead Day in the Dutch city of Breda
View large on black Op zondag 4 september 2011 was het Roodharigendag in Breda voor jong en oud. Duizenden roodharigen kwamen er op af om elkaar te onmoeten, informatie te krijgen en om zich te laten zien en te laten fotograferen. On Sunday, September 4, 2011 it was Redhead Day for young and old in the Dutch city of Breda. Thousands of redheads came to meet each other, to get information and to show themselves and to be photographed.
In the park
Deirdre and Melissa, friends since they were only 4 years old. That's about the time we moved into the neighborhood. They became best friends almost immediately and spent most of their days together, sometimes their nights as we hosted sleepovers back and forth. During the days, occasionally I would yell out the window to the blonde head of hair running past, "MELISSA! Come in here right now!", and a little voice would shout back, "I'm Deirdre!" Monique confesses the same confusion of shouting for Deirdre only to have Melissa answer back in the same fashion. They used to look that much alike. I'm happy to say that they are still the best of friends.
My Expensive Hairdo That Doesn't Look Expensive
Here is the hairdo everyone is asking to see......its really nothing out of the ordinary and its back to curly again, but having straight hair for me is a treat. I don't usually colour or streak my hair either, so that why the bill ended up so much....oh and not to forget the coffee and biscuit I got;-)
Some silliness for now...
I am stuck on the hill that is CalArts for the time being and have not been able to get any film developed in a few weeks...so for now a silly photobooth shot for you...and for me. I'm still alive, and the book is still coming out March 30th! Thanks for all of your wonderful support and comments, they are truly appreciated! xoxo ClaireBear

Mommas and Daughters
We've known each other for over 28 years.
Oh you guys...why must you be so crazy. Yeah, these are my friends...we were at White Spot. EDITED: Can't for the life of me remember what I did to this one. Brightened and lowered saturation I assume. It looks awesome, anyway.
The Real Us...
As opposed to the Fake us... (well, the fake Gemma anyway) [you have to have an account to view the images] www.orkut.com/AlbumView.aspx?uid=5101105864765385650 OK, so I have found out about some really strange side of the internet. Apparently it is very popular in Brazil it seems to be a fake person. There is a TON of people using stolen photos on orkut.com in profiles they make up of fake people. They have groups all about being fake people. I do not speak Portuguese, so I have had a great flickr contact (who's daughter was a victim of this as well) translate for me. I do not know much more than what I have said. Thanks to another contact who found her daughter on there and recognized Gemma, I have been introduced to all the rage among teens in Brazil. I went through and found a few other flickr folks featured...complete with new names and I am sure fancy new fake life stories in Brazil. I have to say. I just don't get it. Â©rachel devine
Here is the new barbie city shopper with her hair out of a ponytail. I used the boil wash method. In the back are the two new fashion royalty boys Kyu and Cruz. They are naked because I still need to get clothes for them :p I also need to do something with cruz' hair hah
Kristen Stewart - mtv movie awards
Kristen Stewart dresses down her look with a pair of Converse sneakers on the red carpet at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Sunday evening (May 31) in Universal City, Calif. The 19-year-old Twilight actress and costar Robert Pattinson won a Golden Popcorn statue for â€œBest Kissâ€. The twosome beat out Wantedâ€™s Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, Slumdog Millionaireâ€™s Dev Patel and Freida Pinto, Milkâ€™s Sean Penn and James Franco, I Love You Manâ€™s Paul Rudd and Thomas Lennon and High School Musical 3â€™s Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. UPDATE 1: Kristen is wearing sneakers because she twisted her ankle. She was supposed to wear pumps! UPDATE 2: Kristen also picked up â€œBest Female Performanceâ€ for Twilight. During her acceptance speech, she dropped the Golden Popcorn statue and awkwardly tried to catch it. Hilarious! justjared.buzznet.com

Save the Girl Child-00019
"Save the girl child campaign (an Internet-driven advocacy effort) by SOCIAL GEOGRAPHIC" Photo: Firoz Ahmad Firoz ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* "Worst of all, violence against women and girls continues unabated in every continent, country and culture. It takes a devastating toll on womenâ€™s lives, on their families and on society as a whole. Most societies prohibit such violence -- yet the reality is that, too often, it is covered up or tacitly condoned." (UN SECRETARY-GENERAL in International Womenâ€™s Day 2007 Message.) â€œAlmost every country in the world still has laws that discriminate against women, and promises to remedy this have not been kept.â€ (UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the eve of International Women's Day 2008) According to one United Nations estimate, 113 to 200 million women are â€œdemographically missingâ€ from the world today. That is to say, there should be 113 to 200 million more women walking the earth, who arenâ€™t. By that same estimate, 1.5 to 3 million women and girls lose their lives every year because of gender-based neglect or gender-based violence and Sexual Violence in Conflict ( Read more about UN Action against Sexual Violence in Conflict www.stoprapenow.org/ ). Millions of young women disappear in their native land every year. Many of them are found later being held against their will in other places and forced into prostitution. According to the UNICEF ( www.unicef.org/gender/index_factsandfigures.html ),Girls between 13 and 18 years of age constitute the largest group in the sex industry. It is estimated that around 500,000 girls below 18 are victims of trafficking each year. United Nations agencies estimated that every year 3 million girls are at risk of undergoing the procedure â€“ which involves the partial or total removal of external female genital organs â€“ that some 140 million women, mostly in Asia, the Middle East and in Africa, have already endured. We can point a finger at poverty. But poverty alone does not result in these womenâ€™s deaths and suffering; the blame also falls on the social system and attitudes of the societies. India alone accounts for more than 50 million of the women who are â€œmissingâ€ due to female foeticide - the sex-selective abortion of girls, dowry death, gender-based neglect and all forms of violence against women. Since the late 1970s when the technology for sex determination first came into being, sex selective abortion has unleashed a saga of horror in India. Experts are calling it "sanitized barbarism".The 2001 Census conducted by Government of India, showed a sharp decline in the child sex ratio in 80% districts of India. The Census Report of 2001 reveals a highly skewed child sex ratio (0-6 year-olds), that fell from 945 females per 1,000 males in 1991 to an all-time low of 927 in 2001. Additional data from the Indiaâ€™s birth and death registration service indicates that the figures have further fallen to fewer than 900 females per 1,000 men over the last few years. In some parts of the country, the sex ratio of girls to boys has dropped to less than 800:1,000. It's alarming that even liberal states like those in the northeast have taken to disposing of girls. Worryingly, the trend is far stronger in urban rather than rural areas, and among literate rather than illiterate women, exploding the myth that growing affluence and spread of basic education alone will result in the erosion of gender bias. The United Nations has expressed serious concern about the situation. Over the years, laws have been made stricter and the punishment too is more stringent now. But since many people manage to evade punishment, others too feel inclined to take the risk. Just look at the way sex-determination tests go on despite a stiff ban on them. Only if the message goes out loud and clear that nobody who dares to snuff out the life of a female foetus would escape effective legal system would the practice end. It is only by a combination of monitoring, education, socio-cultural campaigns, and effective legal implementation that the deep-seated attitudes and practices against women and girls can be eroded. The decline in the sex ratio and the millions of Missing Women are indicators of the feudal patriarchal resurgence. Violence against women has gone public â€“ whether it is dowry murders,the practice of female genital mutilation , honour killings, sex selective abortions or death sentences awarded to young lovers from different communities by caste councils, rapes and killings in communal and caste violence, it is only womenâ€™s and human rights groups who are protesting â€“ the public and institutional response to these trends is very minimal. Millions of women suffer from discrimination in the world of work. This not only violates a most basic human right, but has wider social and economic consequences. Most of the governments turn a blind eye to illegal practices and enact and enforce discriminatory laws. Corporations and private individuals engage in abusive and discriminatory practices without fear of legal system. Sexual harassment and violence in the workplace are common and constant threats to working womenâ€™s lives and livelihoods. More women are working now than ever before, but they are also more likely than men to get low-productivity, low-paid and vulnerable jobs, with no social protection, basic rights nor voice at work according to a new report by the International Labour Organization (ILO) issued for International Womenâ€™s Day 2008. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Unite To End Violence Against Women!
