The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 


because sex workers invented it. can we stop trying so hard to ~elevate~ stripping/pole dance from its roots? thx

    Yudy Sauw: Fascinating faces of bugs, bulging eyes to ants’ sensitive antennae

    Photo Gallery | 500px| Facebook

    Insects may be small, but they have some of the most intricate faces in the animal kingdom.

    Now a wildlife photographer has captured extreme close-ups of the creepy crawlies, revealing the complex compound eyes of flies, aggressive stance of ants and even water drops clinging onto one insect’s hairy face.

    The striking images were shot by 33-year-old Yudy Sauw at his home studio in Tangerang, Indonesia.

    His models included a soldier fly, red ant and a longhorn beetle, which he painstakingly watched to get the best shot.

    While the creatures may not sound particularly exotic, they are interesting. Soldier flies mimic organ pipe mud dauber wasps and longhorn beetles make pests of themselves by boring into wood to damage trees and houses. 

    To take his photographs, Mr Sauw placed the insects between half an inch (2cm) and four inches (10cm) away from his camera.

    He used specialist lighting and a macro lens on his camera to record the creatures’ portraits, before enhancing them on a computer.

    Mr Sauw said: ‘I love macrography because I can see clearly what I cannot see with my normal eyes.

    ‘I can see the small world of insects, what they look like and what they do.’
