‘Cause people seem to only post the 20-something Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
…and history remembers her as pretty.
AND HISTORY REMEMBERS HER AS PRETTY
this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of her older than 20 and I think that’s scary
How can you make the two greatest assassins in the universe completely useless and boring?
I love Wonder Woman for what she embodies/represents. She is my favorite DC female and superhero.
Wonder Woman is wonderful.
don’t even front like some of these didn’t make you shed a tear

“Yesterday’s view from Sounion, Greece. The visitors of the ancient Greek temple of Poseidon watch the perigee full moon rising, but i was photographing the scene from 2km (1,2 miles) at their back.” — Elias Chasiotis
The temple of Poseidon was constructed in 444-440 BC, over the ruins of a temple dating from the Archaic Period. It is perched above the sea at a height of almost 60 m. The design of the temple is a typical hexastyle i.e. it had a front portico with 6 columns. Only some columns of the Sounion temple stand today, but intact it would have closely resembled the contemporary and well-preserved Temple of Hephaestus beneath the Acropolis, which may have been designed by the same architect.

One of the saddest documentary movies I’ve ever watched.
I just watched this documentary and it is one I will never forget. Incredibly sad and almost surreal. I don’t think I’ve ever had such an emotional reaction while watching a film as I just did with this one.
I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old
This commercial is amazing.
I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol
