7 Days of the Lovelorn: Day 3
“Where the Wild Roses Grow” by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
lathmar holi festival in the small indian villages of nandgaon and barsana in the northern state of uttar pradesh. men from one village sing provocative songs to gain the attention of the women in the other village, who then pretend to beat them back with bamboo sticks called lathis. the tradition is based on the story of lord krishna and his shepherd friends flirtatiously throwing colours on radha and her cowherd girls, who in turn chased them off with sticks. the festivities are heightened with thandai, a drink laced with a bhang paste made from ganja. photos by daniel berehulak, jan kostal, mahesh kumar and sanjay patel
When I see Cats following me on Tumblr / Goggle Cat
So, it’s not a rare occurrence to see a Cat start following me on Tumblr. Like, literally, a real Cat. How do I know that I actually have a following of real Cats on Tumblr? Because their user icon is that of a Cat. It would just be silly for a human to masquerade as a Cat on Tumblr.
One night, a particularly majestic Russian Blue started following me. In his photo, he had on a pair of Goggles that were so stylish, I couldn’t help but imagine what my GIFs would look like reflecting off of them. I suppose that most of my followers would be just as transfixed with my images as this Cat seems to have been.
