Aurora

The blue eyed beauty, hair past her chin
With strength in her grip and folds in her grin
Crouched in her stool, in the dark with a fan
Just watching TV, holding my hand

It’s memories like this, from moments so soft
Our distance, a challenge, but connection not lost

Yet today we’ve been humbled
The matriarch passed on
Clothes will be put away
Curtains drawn

Dear grandma, goodbye
Aurora, I miss you
I’ll never forget
You loved all

Te amo

Kenyan grandmothers learn self-defence

Wairimu Gachenga, 70, lives in the Nairobi slum of Korogocho. She looks after her grandchildren – Wahome Njeri (19) and Wairimu Njeri (seven) – after their mother died from an HIV-related illness.

Once a week, a group of older women from the area get together to practise self-defence after one of them was raped

The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.

These are some fun fucking facts
