#otd we celebrate the birthday of the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. The first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (@rockhall ), a Civil Rights activist, and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. #Respect to the Queen! Did you know that since her passing, there's been a dedicated online campaign to convince the @uspostalservice to honor Franklin with a forever stamp - under current guidelines, the soonest we'll see Franklin on a US stamp is 2021. #philately #collectstamps #arethafranklin
The Dead Sea – bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan – is a salt lake whose banks are more than 400m below sea level, the lowest point on dry land. Its famously hypersaline water makes floating easy, and its mineral-rich black mud is used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments at area resorts. The surrounding desert offers many oases and historic sites. #deadsea #seaspa #lowestpointonearth #herodshotel #breathtakingview #mustvisit #worldtraveler #travelwhileyoucan #collectstamps #passporttoparadise #adventure #travelgram #instadaily #heavenonearth #lenahsdiaries

Slovakia is a small country in Eastern Europe and it possesses over 170 castles. All of them are of different styles, sizes and eras built in. Some of them are just ruins, but some are like this one - Bojnice castle - a huge, toylike princess castle 👸 . . . . . . . . . . #slovakia #sk #castle #bojnice #bojnicecastle #ukrainiangirl #travel #traveling #collectmemories #collectstamps #travelphotography #travelmore #travelmoreworryless #wanderlust #explore #discover
from the “Remember me” project ((Gerado)GR[TX]) #obituary #contemporaryart #appropriation #photography #foundphotograph #oldphotograph #vernacularphoto #blackandwhite #snapshot #studioportrait #embroideryart #handstitched #embroideryandphotography #embroidery #embroideredphotograph #embroideryonpaper #mixedmedia #deathnotice #remember #collection #collecting #collector #collectstamps #collectbaseballcards #baseballcards I began this “Remember me” project in fall 2015 thinking, maybe, I’d make 50 pieces. Three years later, I’ve completed over 600. By now I’ve read thousands of obituaries and collected many hundreds of anecdotes. I often run across what the deceased collected. So I started collecting sentences about collections/collecting. Personally I have collections, one of many is studio portrait proofs from Muralcraft Studios, LaPorte, Indiana, taken by Frank Pease in the 1950s–early 1970s. I’ve visited LaPorte four times and collected ±4,000 proofs from the ±50,000 that remained (I love these faces!). So (of course) it follows that I would stitch anecdotes about what and why people collected into my collection of Pease’s photo proofs. http://www.janedeschner.com/remember-me.html http://www.janedeschner.com/more-remember-me.html
