I mean, when we were doing it they are in a huge amount of danger. They’ve nearly just died and I think in that moment it’s about both of them realizing, “If we’re going to die tonight, the one thing I actually want to do is kiss you.”

"Carving a pumpkin is a fun activity for everyone - young and old. However, the custom is far from being a modern one. In fact, it is well over two thousand years old.The origin of the jack-o’-lantern can be traced back to Ireland, where hollowed-out turnips, rather than pumpkins, were carved with simple faces and used as hand-held lanterns. They were used not only to help light the way for those traveling the dark roads on Halloween night, but also to scare away earthbound ghosts - especially those who pursued the spirits of deceased loved ones and prevented them from finding their way to peace in the Land of the Dead.”― Gerina DunwichWitch’s Halloween: A Complete Guide to the Magick, Incantations, Recipes, Spells, and Lore http://amzn.to/1yJnhJyImage Credit: stevie-devlin @ DeviantArt

"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."

Flowers Replace Guns in Historic Photo Collages by Blick

French creative Blick creates historic photo collages where large colorful flowers replace guns and other objects. The juxtaposition between the two source materials is immense, with the beautiful flowers contrasting greatly with the monochrome images of men in the clutches of war.

Most of the images you’ll see here are among the most iconic photos from the World War II era. Most will recognize Soldiers Raising Flag on Iwo Jima or Soldiers Wading Through Jungle Stream, and realize that the photos have been altered. By using such widely recognized images, Blick assures that anyone viewing will understand his message and examine the question of what has been replaced and why.
