The photo of Evelyn McHale is incredible, haunting. She seems so peaceful.

The celestial soul portraits are... stunning. And only $250!

“And only $250!”

And it’s a comfort to know that everyone’s “inner essence” looks like it belongs in a low-budget Saturday morning cartoon.

Thumb up on the celestial pictures. Would you publish a picture of yourself somewhere, in case one of your loyal readers would like to provide you with an oh-so-special gift?

The baby-dreams are a bit creepy. I'm seeing Victorian baby-pictures here;

Now I'll spend a few hours goofing off with the light-pictures and the iconic images blog. Thank you ;-)

Of course, some jackass had to crap on the Khrushchev photo with the comment:

"One tyrant paying homage to another one."

It's the same line of thinking that claims Churchill was as much a "criminal" and "tyrant" as Hitler.

Love the laser beam shooting out of Iasos' head. Is he a celestial soul Dalek, maybe?
