Iranian photographer Hossein Fatemi, offers a glimpse of an entirely different side to Iran than the image usually broadcasted by domestic and foreign media. In his photo series An Iranian Journey, many of the photographs reveal an Iran that most people never see, presenting an eye-opening look at the amazing diversity and contrasts that exist in the country.

Just beautiful.

There are so many writers of color out there, and often what they get when they bring their books to their editors, they say, ‘We don’t relate to the character.’ Well it’s not for you to relate to!

This is a little photoshop side project i’ve been working on. The premise is what if the Tardis mixes up control rooms on the classic Doctor’s. The Tardis has hinted in the past that the old Control Rooms are never deleted just archived. She has also said due to the fact it’s a time machine she has also archived Control Rooms that haven’t been created yet.

Pain is not love.
Read that again
pain is not love.
If he treats you horribly,
you will not have

everything beautiful and free.
He is a cage, little bird.
Pain is not love.
