Breathtaking Photos Show The Undeniable Beauty Of Freckles
Huffington Post - about 1 year
In 2012, photographer Brock Elbank was playing in a weekend-league football match in Sydney when a spectator caught his eye. It was his teammate's son, Eddie, 10 at the time, with "an incredible face full of freckles, like I'd never seen before," he says. (This was hardly the first time Elbank had found himself drawn to a quirky, distinctive facial feature; he's also shot scores of bewhiskered men for his #Beard installation.) With permission from Eddie's father, Elbank had the young lad sit for a portrait, and the session touched off what he calls an obsession with freckles. He has since shot more than 90 portraits for his new #Freckles series, from women whose shoulders and cheeks are just dusted with dots to a nose-pierced gentleman with freckles traipsing over his eyelids, across his lips, and everywhere in-between. His subjects, who hail from Britain, Cambodia, Switzerland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Kuwait, Japan, the U.S., and more countries, come in all ages, size ...

Huffington Post - almost 4 years
LIMA, Peru — Peru's state news agency reported Tuesday night that a young California couple missing for more than a month was headed toward Ecuador on a tributary of the Amazon. The report by the Andina news agency cited a statement by Peru's ministry of foreign trade and tourism and could not immediately be confirmed. The U.S. Embassy had issued a statement Monday saying Garrett Hand and Jamie Neal, both 25, were last heard from Jan. 25 while traveling from the highlands city of Cuzco to Lima. The two live in the San Francisco Bay area and had been on a cycling trip. Embassy spokeswoman Leslie Goodman said on Tuesday that U.S. officials were informed by Peruvian police that the two had been spotted in the Amazon. Andina reported that the couple had recently stopped in the town of Angoteros and spoken with a police officer. It said both "expressed their surprise at information that foreign media had reported their supposed disappearance." The report did n ...

Published 03:21 p.m., Tuesday, June 5, 2012 The Walt Disney Co. said Tuesday that it will become the first major media company to ban such ads for its TV channels, radio stations and websites intended for children.

The kids' meals offered by traditional fast-food chains may not meet the new advertising guidelines, even if the meals come with healthy side orders, says Leslie Goodman, Disney's senior vice president of corporate citizensh ...
