The word is derived from the Japanese word mono (物?), which means "thing", and aware (哀れ?), which was a Heian period expression of measured surprise (similar to "ah" or "oh"), translating roughly as "pathos", "poignancy", "deep feeling", or "sensitivity", or "aware". Thus, mono no aware has frequently been translated as "the 'ahh-ness' of things", life, and love. Awareness of the transience of all things heightens appreciation of their beauty, and evokes a gentle sadness at their passing. "A sensitivity to ephemera"

 

Having to post on tumblr BECAUSE FB won’t let me post this beauty directly on your wall for your b-day, Kelly. RUDE. I find ways around these ludicrous rules, HOWEVER.  
HAPPY SOFLA BIRTHDAY MY SEXY FRIEND!!! Wish I could be down there celebrating with you <3

Get a giant telephoto lens.
Start zoomed all the way out.
Step back a few feet and zoom in so the object is the same size.
Repeat.
Or it’s witchcraft and we need to set this photographer on fire. 

I have been staring at this gif for like five minutes and I still have no idea what is happening
