Published in 2011, Ricardo Cases‘s stunning photo book Paloma al Aire (Pigeons In the Air)depicts colorful and unusual moments from a unique form of pigeon racing that takes place in Valencia and Murcia, Spain. This “sport” involves the release of one female pigeon and dozens of painted male pigeons – the winner of the “race” is decided by how much time the male spends with the female. Each male pigeon is painted by his owner, in much the same way color is used to distinguish teams. The pigeons’ breeders, mostly older retired men, invest lots of time and money into their birds – some of the pigeons are worth thousands of euros in addition to the amounts placed during bets on these flighty contestants.

And Tyrion’s just like “Respect.”
If anyone can appreciate the value of a well delivered backhanded compliment, it’s Tyrion.
This goes right up there with Spock’s “live long and prosper”
Continuing in my quest for a lit-themed wardrobe…
FANGIRL! By rainbowrowell! YAY!
I painted this today, and I’m totally going to bring it along to wear at LeakyCon this year. It’s perfect - both for its fangirl-ish-ness, and to wear for the lit track! :D
You are cosplaying a book OMG. I LOVE IT!!

Katie, you do/make the cutest things!

I do not have the triangle ears. Therefore I am a people and not a dog OR a cats. I am a flat ears human, so please give the oats.
PLUS even if I was dog or cats I’m flip flap ears back which means gentle and submissive and deserving of fud.
(This is TRICKSTER flip flap ears back, though, as you can probably tell it’s not a genuine submissive posture)
It’s the expert side-eye that gives it away.
This is extremely Tumblr worthy.
Always reblog “Everyone ever except Michael Collins”
Brigadier General in the United States Air Force, Command Module Pilot and designer of the patch for Apollo 11, and most isolated human in history for parts of said mission.
Respect, General Collins.
Holy fucking shit.
Mike Collins is a fascinating figure in history, but whenever people talk about him all I can think of is that rejected SNL sketch where he was jerking off with the flag.
