from all the guitars the Rickenbacker 620 i love the most.

The Rickenbacker 620 is a solid-body guitar manufactured by the Rickenbacker Company. It is part of the 600 series of guitars which all share the distinctive "cresting wave" styled body. The Rickenbacker 620 features triangular fret markers, a thick rosewood fret board, a maple body with neck-thru construction, and maple neck. The 620 also comes standard with a stereo output jack. The guitar's pickups are twin single coil 'Hi-gains'. The Rickenbacker 620 sports the Rickenbacker signature, an 'R' style tailpiece. There is a twelve string version of this guitar available, the Rickenbacker 620/12. The Rickenbacker 620 comes in fireglo, mapleglo, jetglo, and midnight blue finishes from the factory.[1] The 620 is less popular with big recording artists as its siblings the 330 and 360, however some guitarist have consistently used them including Chris Urbanowicz of Editors. Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers received the very first 620/12 12-string (made in December 1963, actually called a prototype 625/12), and has used it on hits such as Listen to Her Heart and Here Comes My Girl.(wikipedia)

in the header you can see some of my photoshoot with diana+ with film tmax 100 b/w.

a boy and a starfish

One day an old man was walking along the beach in the early morning and noticed the tide had washed thousands of starfish up on the shore. Up ahead in the distance he spotted a boy who appeared to be gathering up the starfish and one by one tossing them back into the ocean.

He approached the boy and asked him why he spent so much energy doing what seemed to be a waste of time.

The boy replied, "If these starfish are left out here like this they will bake in the sun, and by this afternoon they will all be dead."

The old man gazed out as far as he could see and responded, "But, there must be hundreds of miles of beach and thousands of starfish. You can't possibly rescue all of them. What difference is throwing a few back going to make anyway?"

The boy then held up the starfish he had in his hand and replied, "It's sure going to make a lot of difference to this one!"


Helping other people will help you to see things from a new perspective and to realize the value you have in other people's lives. Whatever it is, the stars have given you the willingness to be there for other people. Use this opportunity. Never feel Lifeless!!
