"EDINBURGH CASTLE"🇬🇧 . Standing on its great rock, Edinburgh castle dominates Scotland’s capital. To control the castle was to hold the keys to the kingdom. During the Wars of Independence the castle changed hands many times. In 1314 it was retaken from the English in a daring night raid by Thomas Randolph, nephew of Robert the Bruce. The castle was home to kings and queens. Queen Margaret (later St Margaret) died here in 1093, and Mary Queen of Scots, gave birth to James VI in the royal palace in 1566. In 1996, the Stone of Destiny, on which kings were enthroned for centuries, was returned to Scotland and is displayed in the Crown Room. Parts of Castle are still a military base, but the castle is now a world-famous visitor attraction and a key element of the Edinburgh Heritage. . INTERESTING FACT😉 . When Michael Gorbachev decided to visit Edinburgh, the Russian secret service demanded the blocking of the spyhole by the Great Hall Fireplace😆 . #ENGlicia #learnenglish #studyenglish #speakenglish #englishlanguage #wordoftheday #englishwords #englishforlife #easyenglish #easywords #edinburgh #scotland #history #kings #queens #edinburghcastle #английскийязык #английскийлегко #эдинбург #замок #шотландия #история #каксказать #какспросить #учуанглийский #английскийонлайн at Moscow, Russia

Part 23. #киновызов_июль от @luxorcinema @filmoman @vikkibooooo и @ta_pauline Победа над собой И сегодня в рубрике #корольговорит Прекрасный байопик от Тома Хупера, о британском монархе Георге VI, или как его называли близкие, просто Берти. Обожаю этот фильм, он мне нравится по всем параметрам и я не понимаю людей, которые называют его скучным. У Берти была проблема с речью, он очень сильно заикался, а монарху положено говорить вдохновляющие речи четко и ясно, и ради этого он старался побороть свой недуг. Боролся со своими демонами, боролся со своими страхами и в конце концов он смог победить, хоть и пытался сдаться, но поддержка его друга и его семьи ему помогла. Невероятно прекрасные актеры, постановка, музыка, диалоги и многое другое покорило меня с первого просмотра 🤗 — Долгие паузы добавляют весомости в речь. — Тогда я самый весомый король.

Чем бы ты не занимался, тебе требуется смелость. Какую бы дорогу не выбрал, всегда найдется кто-то, кто будет говорить тебе, что ты ошибаешься. Трудности существуют всегда, и это искушает тебя согласиться с тем, кто критикует выбранный тобой путь. Чтобы спланировать что-то и следовать своему плану до конца, отчасти требуется такая же смелость, какая требуется солдату. На свете есть место многим победам, и это толкает отважных людей на то, чтобы добиться их. • Ральф У. Эмерсон

Now I don't know about you but when I see an old abandoned building like this I try to imagine and picture what this building was like back when it was used for a purpose. This was used on an old mine just picture the miners and horses running around here, picture where the viaduct was running the coal out how hectic it would of been how everything would of been black, now it's just dead quiet and peaceful and nature as taken over. Glad it's not been demolished there's some sort of memorial of the hard working miners and what they did for this valley and other valleys, the valleys wouldnt be what they'd be today if it wasn't for the hard working men and woman of the mining community. They're gone now but not forgotten. #Mining #SouthWalesMining #Miners #CoalMining #CoalMines #History #Abersychan #Pontypool #Torfaen #SouthWales #Wales #Cymru #UK #UnitedKingdom #GB #GreatBritain #Europe #LittleBitOfPlanetEarth #Universe #Instagram #Photo #PhotoOfTheDay #Photograph #Photographer #Photography #Travel #Explore #Wanderlust #Adventure #TommyAdventure at Abersychan, Torfaen

Muitos de vocês já viram esta foto, (inclusive de grandes páginas do ramo) com efeitos e legendas indicando o local e a data do evento de alguma batalha da Segunda Guerra Mundial. O que poucos sabem, é que esta foto retrata o universo imaginário de Mark Hogancamp em escala 1/6. Sim, são bonecos em escala (a mesma da Barbie) representados pelo artista em questão. Em 8 de abril de 2000, Mark Hogancamp foi atacado fora de um bar por cinco homens que o espancaram quase até a morte depois que ele disse que era um travesti. Depois de nove dias em coma e quarenta dias no hospital, Hogancamp recebeu alta com danos cerebrais que lhe deixaram pouca lembrança de sua vida anterior. Incapaz de pagar a terapia, ele cria o seu próprio tratamento construindo uma cidade belga da Segunda Guerra Mundial em seu quintal e povoando-a com bonecos representando a si mesmo, seus amigos e até mesmo seus agressores. Ele chama aquela cidade de "Marwencol", uma junção dos nomes "Mark", "Wendy" e "Colleen". Hogancamp foi inicialmente descoberto pelo fotógrafo David Naugle, que documentou e compartilhou sua história com a revista Esopus e, em seguida, seu trabalho foi mostrado em uma galeria de arte de Nova York. Em 2010, foi lançado Marwencol (também conhecido como Vila das Bonecas no Reino Unido), um documentário americano que explora a vida e obra do artista e fotógrafo Mark Hogancamp. Foi a estréia do diretor-editor Jeff Malmberg e serviu de inspiração para Welcome to Marwen, um drama dirigido por Robert Zemeckis com previsão de lançamento para o natal de 2018. #instagood #tbt #photooftheday #instafollow #l4l #tagforlikes #followback #warfootage #combatfootage #war #history #história #warphotography #guerra #modernwarfare #worldwar2 #worldwar1 #ww1 #ww2 #militaryhistory #históriamilitar #oldpic #oldhistory #luftwaffe #wwii #plastimodelismo #segundaguerramundial Quer saber mais?

Statue of Gregory of Nin in Split. He was a Croatian bishop who opposed the rest of the Catholic hierarchy, promoting that masses were held in local language instead of Latin. For this reason, he is considered a protector of Croatian identity. It is believed that rubbing one of the statue's toes while saying a wish will make that wish happen. I didn't know that back then. I guess I'll have to pay Gregory another visit! . . . . #croatia #hrvatska🇭🇷 #split #ig_croatia #europe #city #cityscape #history #ancient #traveltheworld #traveladdict #photooftheday #photography #trip #nikon #statue #gregoryofnin #art #bishop #catholic #religion #culture #summer at Split, Croatia
