Brilliant story told in a few photos.
On the 65th anniversary of Gandhi’s assassination, we look back at Margaret Bourke-White’s iconic photo of the civil-disobedience pioneer in 1946, and the story for which the picture was originally made.

Villa Demidoff Park, Tuscany, Italy
It was suggested to me I find a place to travel to in 2013, somewhere I would find remarkable and feel my soul soar. Methinks we have a candidate.
I didn’t start learning Italian in vain, after all.
Caption from LIFE. Goats on the rooftops clatter about and often butt and wrestle each other for the best positions on the ridges. Schweitzer imported a basic herd from Europe some years ago. Its playful descendants still flourish and are allowed to run freely through the village streets and orchard. See more photos here.
The roof is full of goats!
WORLD’S BEST FATHER
Dave Engledow (facebook) - “I have never pursued any sort of career in photography, although I have had a small number of gallery exhibitions and scattered publication. I am relatively new to the world of digital photography-I was inspired to purchase my first DSLR in 2010, upon learning that my wife was pregnant with our first child. I have shot and edited more images in the past year than I have in the previous 10 years combined. Since the birth of our daughter Alice Bee in December 2010, the majority of my inspiration has stemmed from creatively documenting the first moments of her life in our family.”
