Lost in a Paradise: {WWII Memories} Vintage Vernacular from Another Earth


This is a short clip from Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line” which never ceases to inspire and engage the mind and soul with its thoughtful narration and invigorating visuals that take the viewer through the complex voyage of a soldier to war hidden by the beauty of “paradise“. . .

It really must have been something to find yourself in a strange new world, another Earth far away from the hometown you left months before. You might never want to leave. You might hope to be left on a deserted island for the rest of your days; left alone by the complications of society.

Malick does a great job at creating this world, and you can get an even cooler glimpse into this world by digging into the world of vintage vernacular.

NEW FOUND IMAGES OF WAR FROM THE EYE OF FAITH!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

WAR? What is it good for?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Those are the words we have stuck in our head, as of late. With the world in such a dizzy spell of violence and outrage, its hard to believe in a world where war doesn’t exist. But, like the faithful dreamers we are, we will have hope.

War has been around for centuries, and probably since the dawn of man; and yet between the moments of fiery battle and angry destruction, we somehow all find moments of tranquility and joy.

We uncovered a huge collection of beautiful war time photography dating to World War 2 that capture brilliantly and honestly those moments of humanity that really make us the grand creatures we truly are destined to be.

There are smiles, and laughs, and plenty of love and friendship – so much so, that it becomes heartbreaking to imagine the lives of these young boys, and the persistence of wondering whether or not they even survived the tragedies that awaited them.

Here is a look at some of the mysterious moments captured that we now possess to share with the world never to be forgotten.

So, there’s an itty bitty taste of what our collection contains! You’ve seen other unique photos from our collection before, and many of them have been shipped off to museums and/or universities where they will be safely stored and studied for their remarkable sense of composition, as well as place and time.

We are so proud and honoured to have these vintage snapshots as a part of our brand, and I think it is so important for us to keep obtaining these and other photographs, as so these moments will not be lost in time, and the artists, though unknown, can retain some respect and admiration for their spur of the moment creative thought and action!

You’ll probably see a few of these posted on our Etsy {SHOP} over the next few days, so please check it out! Vintage vernacular photographs are one of a kind, and is an affordable way to start collecting art! You can guarantee these pieces will start a million conversations, which is just another aspect that is incredibly enjoyable when collecting vintage snapshot photography.

Not only are they art, but they are a piece of history! So head over now for a peak . . .

THIS DAY IN HISTORY: ROSWELL TURNS 66 !!!

Roswell-Sacramento-Bee-Article-July-8-1947

fake roswell alien

This is a still from what Ray Santilli claimed was film footage taken from the Roswell UFO incident depicting an alien autopsy. The film was released in 1995, but later revealed in 2006 as a hoax. Santilli maintains that it was a reconstruction of real events opposed to a fabrication. 

Today marks the 66th anniversary of the alleged crash of a flying saucer just outside Roswell, New Mexico.

This special date, and strangely special anniversary number (66 being a universal number of unconditional love, healing, and trust in the divine), are being celebrated by Google today in their daily Doodle.

It was a very frightening and exciting time, that has no doubt shaped and changed our society and culture forever. After several witnesses spotted seeing flying saucers over Roswell, New Mexico on July 8, 1947, suspicions were raised after Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut announced that a “flying disk” had been recovered on a ranch near Roswell in a press release. Witnesses at site also claim to have seen alien bodies.

These bodies are said to have been taken into top secret research laboratories where they were studied and stored away for future query. Also under question is the alien craft, which many suspect were taken in by the military, and used for their advanced technologies which helped jet us forward into the Space Age.

While the U.S. government has continued to deny the claims (an official 1997 report Case Closed: Final Report on the Roswell Crash attempted to close the case), millions of people still find truth in the dozens of witnesses who have come forward since, claiming to have seen the fragments of another world.

Classified Military Documents- Roswell- Proof

Since then flying saucers and aliens like those described by witnesses have flooded public consciousness and become a mainstay of popular society. And while the government might deny the existence of aliens at Roswell, they sure were interested in the existence of U.F.O.’s, which they documented heavily in the files of Project Blue Book which was shut down in January 1970, and  is now open to public inspection.

We might never know in our lifetime, but the way things are going, I wouldn’t be surprised if we did!

Fingers crossed.
