Natalie Wood in West Side Story, 1961 (probably the best modest dance performance in history of film, these small steps!) ———————————————————————— At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space. ———————————————————————— #oldhollywood  #vintage  #blondebombshell  #classichollywood  #legend  #1950s  #moviestar  #hollywoodstar  #marilynmonroe  #hollywoodgreats  #1940s  #1960s  #silverscreen  #goldenage  #goldenageofhollywood  #elizabethtaylor  #gretagarbo  #nataliewood  #oldmovies  #retro  #history  #actress  #kidactor  #fashionhistory  #hairgoals  #icon  #vogue  #westsidestory  #musical

The Colorado River winds along the base of the Grand Canyon, which runs for approx 277 miles though Arizona's northern territories. Millions of years of erosion have established the river's course through the Colorado Plateau, exposing nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history. . . . . . . . . #science  #geology  #wow  #facts  #didyouknow  #instafacts  #nature  #learning  #environment  #adventure  #excursion  #earth  #Colorado  #ColoradoRiver  #history

اهدي هدا البوست الى صديقاي العزيزين ولباقي اصدقائي ، واتمنى ان لا يعلقا على هدا البوست لان تم ارساله لهم على الخاص ، نقدم تترادرخما ضرب الاسكندريه للملك بطليموس الثاني285-246 ق م ، وضعت هاتين التترادخمين بسبب واحد ان بطليمىوس في بدايه ضروبه كان ينقش حول النسر (ΠΤΟΛΕΜΑΙΟΥ ΣΩΤΗΡΟΣ ) وتعني بالانكلزيه ptolemy Soteros اي بطليموس المخلّص ، وفي حين آخر عندما ادرك بطليموس انه من طبقه البشر وليس بمخلّص غير في نقوشه وبدأ ينقش BAΣIΛEΩΣ ΠTOΛEMAIOY ، اي ptolemy Basileos وتعني الملك بطليموس ، طبعا الاولى هي الانذر والاكثر أهميه ، ولا يمكن ان نضع كل شيء حول ذلك الضرب بسبب ما توصلت اليه من خطوره هده العقيده الدينيه في العهد البطليمي . ولكن اشرت اليها للافاده ‏The importance of  this coin stems not from its elegant portrait on the obverse, but from the special legend on the reverse. Instead of  the usual Basileos Ptolemaiou, which was the official regnal name of  all the Ptolemaic kings of  Egypt, this one has Basileos Soteros, which solely refers to the deified founder of  the dynasty, Ptolemy I. The aegis that the king wears makes the connection with the divine quite clear: it was not worn by mere mortals but by the gods, as Athena, or other deified heroes, such as Alexander the Great himself. وما يقوله هدا البوست بالانكليزيه ليس صحيح ‏#coins  #numismatics  #money  #coincollecting  #silver  #coincollector  #numismatic  #numismatica  #coincollection  #Greek  #collection #numismatist  #worldcoins  #banknotes  #history  #oldcoins  #hobby  #metaldetecting  #m #monedas  #numismatik  #silvercoins  #archeology  #italy  #rome  #Ptolemy #roma #Egypt #Alexandria 

The past decade saw a huge transformation of the Lower East Side. Many old tenement buildings have been renovated and converted into luxury rentals (though most are still rent regulated). The Lower East Side is still iconic for its history and culture. Many area structures are landmarked and/or located in a historic district retaining their original integrity. 🔺🔺🔺 🔺🔺🔺 🔺🔺🔺 #nyc  #lowereastside  #nycrealestate  #manhattan  #realestate  #tenementlife  #history  #landmarks  #landmark  #historic  #historicdistrict  #idoappraisals

Language is a gift with it, we can bless or curse. I choose to bless because our God, Jesus, is progressive. With language, we’re reminded of the way we’re to go with it, we progress and we don’t need to be depressed. #christian  #language  #progress  #progression  #positive  #gift  #history  #bless

Early 1900s ballgame @ Royal Palm Park. Clean perspective from Henry Flagler's Royal Palm Hotel. This was 305's first true "Ball Grounds." The road lined with horse drawn carriages is now SE 2nd St in Downtown Miami. The road to the right where the bay comes right up to is Biscayne Boulevard. Bayfront Park was still a good twenty years away. Nothing but homes back in the day, nothing but high rises now.

Durante la 2da Guerra Mundial, la zona del Pacífico fue un bastión japonés donde ocurrían cruentas y sangrientas batallas. Los Kamikaze, representaron el espíritu aguerrido y de lucha de los antiguos samurais japoneses como duros combatientes. The Pacific muestra algunos de éstos episodios durante estas sanguinarias luchas contra el imperio del sol naciente hasta su rendición en 1945. #HBOSeries  #micoleccióndeblurays  #History  #WorldWarII  #ThePacific  #recomendación  #cinerecomendación  #2daguerramundial  #Bluray  #steelbook  #Series  #lochido .

“Night of Nights” JUNE 6, 1944, above occupied France...with steely eyes, the Band of Brothers paratroopers of the 101st airborne lunge toward their rendezvous with destiny. Many carry a letter from General Eisenhower that they keep tucked under helmets, in jump boots, and in bulging jacket pockets, close to heart. It read, “Soldiers, sailors, and airmen of the allied expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon the Grey Crusade, toward which we have striven these man months. The eyes of the world are upon you.” At the door of each C-47, with chaos a step away, the Troopers knew “Tonight is the Night of Nights.” A limited edition painting showing The men of Easy Company, 506th PIR, preparing to jump into the chaos of France the night of D-Day. The painting is signed by those pictured in the painted. Buck Compton being the most renowned. You may remember him from the series BAND OF BROTHERS. Truly a remarkable piece to place above the allied display. #bandofbrothers  #ww2  #worldwar2  #history  #101stairborne  #506thpir  #easycompany  #greatestgeneration  #buckcompton  #billguarnere  #war  #collector  #sell  #holland  #presidentialunitcitation  #airborne  #ww2history  #collection  #antique  #authentic  #valorstudios  #tomhanks  #stevenspielberg  #dday  #easycompany  #trending  #wwii  #rouxed  #art  @valorstudiosinc

20 Years Ago today I saw my first ever Star Wars movie in theaters! This ignited in me a lifelong love of Star Wars and figure collecting. The impact that this movies and its subsequent sequels has had on my life cannot be measured. The midicorian count is off the charts!

✧ 며칠 후 서대문감옥에 이감되었다. 동지들은 모두가 앞서거니 뒤서거니로 그곳에 함께 복역하게 되니 날마다 서로 얼굴을 대하는 것만으로도 족히 위로가 되고 간간이 말로도 정을 나누며 지내는 까닭에 고생 중의 즐거움이라는 느낌이 들었다. 뿐인가, 5년 이하로는 세상에 나올 바람도 가질 수 있지만 7년 이상으로는 스스로 옥중 귀신이 될 것으로 믿기 때문에 육체로는 복역을 하지만 정신으로는 왜놈을 금수처럼 보고 쾌활한 마음으로 죽는 날까지 낙천적인 생활을 하기로 작정 했다. 동지들도 거의가 지향하는 바가 같으므로 서로 모의하지 않고도 옥중의 행동이 같을 때가 많았다. 그러니 오월동주(吳越同舟)라는 옛말이 참으로 허튼 말이 아닌 것을 깨달을 수 있었다. . 김구, 백범(白凡) 일지 . . . . . . .
