The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

Day 27: Favorite scene from a movie 

I had a hard time choosing the best parts from Howl’s Moving Castle… There are just too many beautiful moments. So I sort of mixed two of them. I almost gave up on this one, ‘cause I couldn’t get the colors right and the ring to move smoothly, but if you want the good version there is always the movie <3.

you know when you’re just driving or walking around or something 

and you remember that you have fingernails and you think wow i completely forgot i had fingernails

and then you try to remember the last time you thought about them and its been ages and they’ve always been there while you’ve done all that cool shit the last few days and you didn’t even think of them once
