The Death of Cleopatra by Giampietrino (Nudity from 1525)


He copied numerous masterpieces by Leonardo, as well as leaving behind numerous capable original compositions of his own.

I love this painting. Do you?  (Perfect for a dining room)

Capital Cities - Safe And Sound (Official Video)



"Safe And Sound"
I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound

I could fill your cup
You know my river won't evaporate
This world we still appreciate

You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we'll be safe and sound

Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Hold your ground
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound

I could show you love
In a tidal wave of mystery
You'll still be standing next to me

You could be my luck
Even if we're six feet underground
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound

Safe and sound
Safe and sound
Hold your ground
Safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be

You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound
We're safe and sound

Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound
Hold your ground
We're safe and sound
Safe and sound
We're safe and sound

Shilo Shiv Suleman




Someone to inspire.
Give chills.
To allow what's possible to blossom fruitfully 
in your mind's eye.
One who lets your ideas fly free.


Shilo wrote on her Facebook:

"2013 was a year of churning and learning, Enfield rides across the country with Avijit Michael, Running with thousands of Naga babas into the ganga at the Kumbha Mela, learning how to swim in deep water again after 8 years, moving into my own apartment, gave up eating meat, 3 years since I quit smoking, was featured in 2 amazing documentaries Rebel Music and Scattered Windows, Connected Doors alongside the most inspiring people I know, painted many walls across the country, started the Fearless campaign with over 250 artists, designed the biggest stage I've ever done at 72 feet for the Dewarists, collaborated on my most tactile one for INK, Got featured byNational Geographic in this http://onward.nationalgeographic.com/2013/11/17/getting-to-know-some-of-indias-future-leaders/ and many other beautiful writings by Yahoo and more. 




I swam in waterfalls and rivers and the sea, re-discovered parts of me and my heart and practice that were too long ignored, cleaned up my lifestyle to include healthier food and habits, cleansed more, listened more, got hurt so much more, cleared my mind more, feared more, doubted more, irrational more, found more, thought more, loved more, forgave more and became more than I ever have been. Onwards to 2014. May it be full of joy and lightness and appreciate all the blessings and abundance my life has given me not just in retrospect but in every present moment. Lovelovelove with all my heart."  - Shilo Shiv Suleman

Where do you find diamonds?






"Everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them. Your body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.” - Muhammad Ali

hashtagphotography magazine










Almost 7 years ago I started my blog
because I wanted to be a
Magazine Editor-in-Chief
You know
the big gun
the Publisher














Not sure if Issuu was alive then
but now
I am smitten by the publishing genius
of many
case in point







#PHOTOGRAPHY is an online magazine 
run by two graduates with a passion for image making. 
They are dedicated to finding the best unknown talent. 
Fed up of generic photography magazine which churn out banal, 
indistinguishable photographers, 
#PHOTOGRAPHY focuses on more talent and less cliche.

Click on their smart covers above to view.
Enjoy.
