Good lord, what I would give to be the guy who writes the book on their mating strategies.
Tamara Dean, who is amazing Australian photographer, says “Very happy to receive the news that my portrait of Neil Gaiman is a finalist in the ‘National Photographic Portrait Prize’!”
I am impressed and proud of her. I love these photographs. I was incredibly tired, the wind did the strangest things to my hair, and I was being photographed in a back alley behind my publishers in Sydney… and somehow everything worked: the light, the wind, the way the back alley transmuted itself into a futuristic backdrop, even the tiredness helped, because I just did whatever Tamara asked without thinking about what was happening. I hope she wins the National Photographic Portrait Prize, but even if she doesn’t, so thrilled for her that it was a finalist.
annamccamyb asked: I was watching jeopardy and apparently the inventor of "gif" says they are pronounced with a soft "g". But you always say both are correct! Is jeopardy wrong??
No, the inventor of “gif” is wrong. It’s not his word…it’s ours. No one owns words.
Very true. Although it’s equally as true that when I read an account of a life in which everyone is inexplicably mean to a faultless narrator, I start to wonder about how well the narrator actually perceives the world about them…
