    Compliments of the Red Hat Society

    When a person is a week shy of turning 100, she develops a kind of innocence- or rather, a casual indifference to social norms.
    One such person, a tiny wizened lady, was slowly making her way toward breakfast this morning when a member of the staff pointed out to her that her skirt was inside out. My lady stared at this person for a second, then without a word, right there in the lobby, dropped her skirt to the floor. I did a kind of yelp, ran over to her yelling HANG ON HANG ON HANG ON HANG ON, and assisted her to a bathroom to rectify the situation. Later I laughed myself stupid.
    I want to be her when I grow up.

    The Last Japanese Mermaids 

    For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

    In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
