DAY 18: THE KING’S SPEECH It has taken me a while to get to this film because I didn’t really have a fascination with the Royal Family until The Crown. As I experienced this film, this was more just a general crowdpleaser - it detailed the strength of King George VII as a main that did not falter even when he began to doubt himself - it is beautifully and intricately told by Colin Firth and director Tom Hooper. It is difficult for me to find much fault here - it was dramatic, lighthearted and funny in equal measures. Having only see the aftermath in The Crown, it was great to see this story unfold naturally. Colin Firth is truly a gem - he often excels in any roles and as we saw in Bridget Jones’s Diary and Kingsman, he is versatile to say the least. Seeing him recount the tales about why he stammers to the small moments of gratitudes he exerts to his family and friends, in particular Lionel Logue really demonstrate that Firth deserved that Academy Award. Geoffrey Rush plays a nice foil to Firth and as immensely likeable as he is, he is more than just the common man helping out a Royal Family member; he acts as a strong voice of reason and motivator. Hooper and cinematographer Danny Cohen have incorporated an unusual filming method for this film with wide shots or characters being offcenter, it is different without it being too distracting - he feeds into your mind as something unique, making you want to pay attention. Extreme closeups aid in fantastic viewing of the actors’ presence onscreen. Stylistically it keeps things simple and captures the era nicely but its filmmaking prowess sets it apart from other historical films. The King’s Speech is an immensely captivating tale about overcoming your fear and utilising it as a power and a strength. In large part to Hooper’s work behind the camera and Colin Firth’s unsurprisingly nuanced performance, the film is a lot more than what it appears and that is probably the biggest surprise. #thekingsspeech #colinfirth #helenabonhamcarter #timothyspall #geoffreyrush #guypearce #jenniferehle #michaelgambon #historical #drama #comedy #georgevi #movie #movies #film #films #filmreview #cinema #cinephile
I like weird people. The black sheep, the odd ducks, the rejects, they eccentrics, the loners, the lost and forgotten. More often than not, these people have the most beautiful souls.🤴🏽 . #mexicolors #méxico #mexico🇲🇽 #travelbloggers #wanderlusting #mayan

Kashan is a city in the Isfahan province of Iran. Kashan is the first of the large oases along the Qom-Kerman road which runs along the edge of the central deserts of Iran. Its charm is thus mainly due to the contrast between the parched immensities of the deserts and the greenery of the well-tended oasis. Archeological discoveries in the Sialk Hillocks which lie 2.5 miles (4 km) west of Kashan reveal that this region was one of the primary centers of civilization in pre-historic ages. Hence Kashan dates back to the Elamite period of Iran. The Sialk ziggurat still stands today in the suburbs of Kashan after 7000 years. After world known Iranian historical cities such as Isfahan and Shiraz, Kashan is a common destination for foreign tourists due to numerous historical places. 신세종新世宗 @shin_sejong @ulsco @hanirantour #hanirantour #shinsejong #ulsco www.hanirantour.co.kr #iran #korea #hanirantour #visa # #한이란 #투어 #ticket #hotel #touristattraction #northofiran #southofiran #westofiran #eastofiran #hanirantour #seoul #southkorea #이란으로 #떠나요 #新世宗 #신세종 #이란비자 #iran #kashan #historical Address: Seoul, Yongsan-gu , Hannam-Dong 261-2. 서울 용산구 한남동 261-2

I’m a little bit in love with this shot taken back in 1938 of Central Park. You can look through Instagram and see a million shots of today’s park, but how many of these do you see?? 😘 - - - #nyc #speechless #unchanged #mycity_life #skyscraper #construction #centralpark #building #realestate #historical #appreciate #island #manhattan #trees #what_i_saw_in_nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #trees #streets #memories #centralpark #crazy #look #explore #skyline #architecture #love #breathtaking #newyorker #newyorknewyork #newyork_instagram
Melanjutkan serial #travelsketch liburan. Kali ini gue menggambar ikon utama kota #Malang yaitu Tugu Malang. Tugu ini berdiri di alun-alun berbentuk bundar dan terletak di depan balai kota Malang. Pembangunan tugu ini selesai pada 1953 sedangkan gedung balai kota berasal dari tahun 1930-an. #art #artwork #illustration #doodlewash #watercolor #worldwatercolorgroup #landmark #monument #tugu #cityicon #historical #usk #urbansketch #urbansketcher
Orsanmichele (Italian pronunciation: [orsamːiˈkɛːle]) (or "Kitchen Garden of St. Michael", from the contraction in Tuscan dialect of the Italian word orto) is a church in the Italian city of Florence. The building was constructed on the site of the kitchen garden of the monastery of San Michele, which no longer exists. Located on the Via Calzaiuoli in Florence, the church was originally built as a grain market[1] in 1337 by Francesco Talenti, Neri di Fioravante, and Benci di Cione. Between 1380 and 1404, it was converted into a church used as the chapel of Florence's powerful craft and trade guilds. On the ground floor of the square building are the 13th-century arches that originally formed the loggia of the grain market. The second floor was devoted to offices, while the third housed one of the city's municipal grain storehouses, maintained to withstand famine or siege.[1] Late in the 14th century, the guilds were charged by the city to commission statues of their patron saints to embellish the facades of the church.[1] The sculptures seen today are copies, the originals having been removed to museums (see below) #guidedtour #guidedtour #orsanmichele #bestours #donatello #verrocchio #giambonia #sculptures #artwork #churche #explore #experiences #historical #center #nanidibanco #ghiberti #gothic #stile #
