“What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Here’s a take on the “Actions speak louder than words. adage. It’s true that words can often be contradicted by the actions we take. This may be because words are easy to spew out, but you can only perform so many actions in a day.

Actions must be more thought out and are a more accurate measure of what you really intend to do. Make sure to choose your actions wisely, as others will come to their conclusions about you based on what you do rather than what you say. Many times there is a big discrepancy between what is said and what is done, which is why what you do matters more.

Steve McCurry vison of life as remarkable travel

Each of my photos is not just an episode from life, it’s  quintessence,  a full story, that what Steve McCurry said. By taking a glance at his works you are teleporting in that story….

150713103735-steve-mccurry-coffee-16-super-43

McCurry has brought his works to such perfect level of perception when, you are looking at them, anyone realise the participation and partaking in the concept of universal development.

His career was launched when, disguised in native garb, he crossed the Pakistan border into rebel-controlled Afghanistan just before the Russian invasion. When he emerged, he had rolls of film sewn into his clothes and images that would be published around the world as among the first to show the conflict there.

INDIA-10209NF

His coverage won the Robert Capa Gold Medal for Best Photographic Reporting from Abroad, an award dedicated to photographers exhibiting exceptional courage and enterprise.

SRI LANKA. South Coast. Weligama. 1995. Fishermen.

Some of his pictures and especially a portrait of the Afghan girl are entered in the category of the well-known world photo-icons.

Though, without looking, at several photos that have passed one million and a world fame, McCurry, still, doesn’t consider himself well-known. As the photographer has told in one of his interviews: “Usually public recognise the photo, but not her author”. Discover more by visiting  Steve McCurry exhibition in La Venaria Reale in Turin.

BURMA. Myanmar. 2011

Каждая из моих фотографий не является просто эпизодом от жизни, это – квинтэссенция, полная  ее история,  то что сказал Стив МакКарри. Взглянув на его работы Вы телепортируетесь в эту историю…

Buddhism-Yangon-Myanmar-Burma-by-Steve-McCurry

МакКарри довел свои работы до такого совершенного уровня восприятия, когда, глядя на них, любой осознает свою сопричастность и участие в концепции общемирового развития.

Его карьера была начата, когда замаскированный в одежду уроженца, он пересек Пакистанскую границу в контролируемый мятежниками Афганистан непосредственно перед российским вторжением. Когда он появился, ему вшили катушки с пленкой в одежду и изображения, которые будут опубликованы во всем мире как первые, показывающие  тот конфликт.

INDIA. Jammu and Kashmir. Srinagar. 1999. Flower Seller at Dal Lake.

Его репортаж выиграл Золотую медаль Роберта Кэпы для Лучшей Фотографической Отчетности из-за границы, премия, посвященная фотографам, показывающим исключительную храбрость и предприятие.

CHINA. Zhengzou. 2004. Shaolin monks training.

Некоторые его картины и особенно портрет афганской девочки введены в категорию известных мировых фотосимволов.

 Хотя, не смотря, на количество фотографий переваливших за миллион и мировую известность, МакКарри, по прежнему, не считает себя знаменитым. Как сам фотограф сказал в одном из интервью: “Обычно люди узнают фотографию, а не ее автора”..

“It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.” ~Howard Ruff

Being prepared is one thing, but this quote is asking you to take it to the next level. Noah was tipped off that the flood was coming, but life doesn’t always work out that way. You almost have to assume that something bad is going to happen at some point in your future, so why wait until it occurs to try to deal with it then?

it-wasnt-raining-when-noah-built-the-ark

Prepare yourself for a disaster and if it doesn’t come even better. But if it does you’ll be able to handle it better and get through it more easily. It’s not a form of negative thinking to prepare for hardship, in fact it is a way of preserving your positive thinking even through rough times.

“Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.” ~Arthur Christopher Benson

You take yourself with you wherever you go, so running off to a new place is no way to escape. You’ll just end up replicating the same patterns that got you where you are in the first place. But if you work on changing habits that don’t serve you, and replacing them with ones that do you’ll notice that you no longer feel like you have to escape from the situation, and can feel more comfortable in your surroundings. You can still use a change of scenery to help uproot you from your rut and make lasting changes.

terrific tea plantations

If u drink a tea it’s probably not grown in America or Europe. If you live in the USA  or Europe area then it’s a pretty safe bet that you don’t have a terrific view of a tea plantation.  In fact its a pity because its really beautiful. Grab yourself some tea, if you are so inclined, while you view these terrific tea plantations. “If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.” ~ quote by William Gladstone..

Если вы пьете чай то он проблематично не выращен в Америке или в Европе. Если Вы живете в области США или Европы тогда, это – довольно надежная ставка, что у Вас нет потрясающего вида на плантацию чая. Жалко по факту потому, что это действительно красиво. Возьмите себе немного чая, и если вы склонны, рассмотрите эти потрясающие плантации чая. ” Если вам будет холодно чай согреет вас. Если вам будет жарко, он охладит вас. если вы будете подавлены, он поднимет вам настроение. Если вы взволнованы, он успокоит вас.”  Уильямом Гладстоун

Champions keep playing until they get it right.” ~Billie Jean King

Think of how many people quit playing before they become a champion. Perhaps they might have made it if they just would have kept playing, making adjustments, and getting better at their craft. If you want to experience more success all you have to do is keep practicing, keep playing against better opponents, and keep learning all that you can. With enough perseverance you’ll find that you become a champion because you’ve spent time “in the trenches and now you know your game better than anyone else and you are dubbed a champion. This is not just applicable to sports, but to several areas of personal development. Which areas of your life do you want to become a champion in?

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” ~Yoda

Yoda dropped one of his most famous phrases on Luke when Luke said he would try to move the sunken ship. He pointed out a very true statement. You either accomplish what you set out to do, or you don’t, there is no in between, no grey area called try. Choose to do that one thing that you’ve been “trying to do but have yet to succeed at. Feel that satisfaction that comes with knowing that you did, and that you didn’t just try, or you didn’t do not. You must unlearn what you have learned.

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” ~Frederick Douglass

Struggle often feels like a lack of progress, so it’s nice to turn it on its head and realise that it’s actually the way progress is made. If you’re not struggling you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The important part is not to let struggle deter you from making that progress. Step one is learning to view struggling as a positive thing, rather than a negative thing. Then you won’t be so hard on yourself if you find that you’re struggling again. It just means you’re learning, growing, and taking on enough to keep you busy.

Body Cult

ПРЕДСТАВЬТЕ В ОДНОЙ КОМНАТЕ ОДНОВРЕМЕННО ВСЕХ ЖЕНЩИН, которых вы когда-либо видели — от Мэрилин Монро до случайной прохожей. В них не найдется ничего общего, кроме того, что они — люди. Но индустрия красоты и история искусства, которую все еще принято постигать глазами, норовят перепутать карты и выдать четкий стандарт, которому ни я, и даже Анджелина Джоли, скорее всего, не соответствуют. Почему так происходит и откуда берется этот идеал недостижимой красоты — большой и важный вопрос. Красота — дело вкуса: это в равной степени подтверждает выбор партнеров друзьями и полярные комментарии под фотографиями знаменитостей. Но для адекватного отношения со своим телом важнее найти опору в настоящем и прошлом. И нет ничего лучше и нагляднее общей истории искусства, чтобы обрести эту опору.

Для красоты тела важны многие параметры. И правильное питание, и хороший сон, и регулярные спортивные тренировки. И ещё для красоты тела важным помощником является косметика. Около года назад я начала замечать, что моя кожа на ногах стала шелушиться и как-то странно реагировать на синтетические чулки , бритву и мыло. После чего я сходила к дерматологу – он мне это все подтвердил. Оказывается  пои ножки стали алергичными к синтетике и мылу ((( Долго думала как поддерживать чистоту и гигиену этих зон ведь практически все средства имеют в себе небольшой состав мыла!!! Меня спасло то, что я была в Италии и зашла в ближайшую аптеку в расстроенном виде. Милая женщина показала мне продукт который изменил мой взгляд на реальность :  крем для тела без мыла  от Lierac !!! Буквально после нескольких дней использования я забыла про существование моей проблемы как таковой. Я решила вернуться и поблагодарить девушку и на эмоциях еще прикупила скраб gommage sensoriel Lierac для тела который настоятельно советую попробовать !!!

lierac-крем для тела без мыла

Lierac best scrub ever

IMAGINE IN ONE ROOM ALL WOMEN AT THE SAME TIME , whom you ever saw — from Marilyn Monroe to the casual passerby. In them there will be nothing common, besides, that they are— people. But the industry of beauty and art history which still can be comprehended eyes, strive to mix cards and to issue the accurate standard to which YOU and I, and even Angelina Jolie, most likely, don’t correspond. Why it occurs and from where this ideal of unattainable beauty — a big and important question undertakes. Beauty — a matter of taste: it equally confirms a choice of partners with friends and polar comments under photos of celebrities. But for the adequate relation with the body it is more important to find a support in the present and the past. Also there is nothing best of all and more visually than the general history of art to find this support.

For a beauty of body there are many  important parameters. Both healthy nutrition, and good sleep, and regular sports trainings. And still for keeping beauty shape important assistant is the cosmetics. About a year ago I started noticing that my skin start shelling and somehow strangely react to synthetic stockings,  razor and soap. After all that i went to dermatologist – he to me is all confirmed. It appears that my legs alergichny to synthetics and soap ((( I thought how to maintain purity and hygiene of these zones after all practically all  have small composition of soap! ! ! I was rescued with my stay in Italy; came into the next drugstore in the upset look. The lovely woman showed me a product which changed my view of reality: a body cream without soap from Lierac! ! ! Literally after several days of use I forgot about existence of my problem at all. I decided to return and thank the girl and emotionally still bought gommage sensoriel Lierac scrub for a body which insistently I advise to try! ! !

Chilling on the sun in Milan

When the summer comes to Milan, it makes me feeling extremely hot! Just this strange feeling with cold wind , kind of what to wear ? To stay not too hot but do not catch cold – my choice is leather shorts with loafers and tshirt with jacket . I am feeling so comfortable and chic in the same time) Love this trick with the leather shorts – never getting to hot,  but when its windy they are protecting !!! So one of my musthave one pair of leather shorts – no matter what to mix with – always a bingo !!!

Когда лето приходит в Милан, становится очень жарко ! Только это странное чувство с прохладным ветром, что бы одеть такого?  Чтобы было не очень жарко и в тоже время чтоб не простудится – мой выбор кожаные шорты с лоферами и футболкой и пиджаком. Я чувствую себя очень комфортно и с шиком в одно и тоже время. Люблю этот фокус с кожаными шортами – никогда не становится очень жарко, но когда становится ветрено они  согревают!!! Так что один из моих musthave пара кожаных шортов – не имеет значение с чем сочетать – всегда на ура !!!
