So there is a Bell in Philadelphia that has a crack in it. If you like bells or crack this is the place for you. Also met the worlds cutest kid on the way there.
I am not going to pretend I know about history much. I can’t even remember what happened yesterday let alone 250 years ago.
This bell means a lot to Americans. It stands for freedom, justice and all those other words that our American cousins like to use a lot. I don’t like it when Glen Beck uses those words then cries.
Naturally being a sarcastic Limey. The first thing I pointed out upon seeing it was that it had a big crack in it. The crack happened on the first ring of the bell and that this was due to sub-standard American manufacturing techniques. My good American friend pointed out that it was built in London. “So America’s first act of independence was out sourcing and it broke because it was recast locally”. HA! Got him!
The building it is housed in is very nice and has lots of information and artifacts relating to the bell. I’m not a history buff and I would be lying if I said I read everything. But it is good never the less. Also in the area are other old buildings where they signed stuff and Ben Franklin chatted to people about things. WOW I am the world’s worst history guide.
On a side note, Look at how cute that kid is. I was scared my girlfriend was going to demand a baby after she saw this adorable kid. Well he live in Philly and so does the bell so try and see them both.

There is no way to go but up for creative people. Rest is for the lazy, or so we believe. We like to push our limits and boundaries, yearning to be 'better'. "Better" is a myth, even you, photographer, needs rest.
They say art destroys lives, just the way Vincent Van Gogh met his demise. It's a stereotype that creativity happens at the expense of our sanity. It is the other way around. Art saves lives, and photography has saved much more in the modern world.
In a conversation about Ansel Adams' genius, one would often find wondering if he actually struggled like a normal artist, or if he was just naturally talented and skilled. The latter is popular among his fans, but clearly, there's more to this photographer's story.
In the art world, there's an unspoken rule that one has to stick with a single art form: a "'til death do us part" pact between medium and artist. But English artist Rebecca Rose Harris doesn't like to boxed in four corners. Her photography is a reflection of her other works with various mediums.
