My nickname, it's Millie (from Amelia). My blog consists of things that I like, things of interest, things I'm passionate about, and sometimes how I feel at any given moment. I breathe: art, design, music, food, movies/tv shows (die hard horror and science fiction fan, but you wouldn't know that judging from my blog), fashion, Old Hollywood, and some current/recent actors and actresses.

Portraits from Philippe Halsman’s Jump series

"Starting in the early 1950s I asked every famous or important person I photographed to jump for me.  I was motivated by a genuine curiosity.  After all, life has taught us to control and disguise our facial expressions, but it has not taught us to control our jumps.  I wanted to see famous people reveal in a jump their ambition or their lack of it, their self-importance or their insecurity, and many other traits."
