New Zealand-based photographer Holly Spring has stumbled upon a foolproof formula for capturing beauty: whimsical scenery, a realistic blend of photography and digital art, and her remarkable, one-handed daughter, Violet.
Spring recently shot a striking portrait series of 4-year-old Violet, who suffered early in life with Hirschsprung’s Disease and is missing her left hand. The series has rightfully gained recognition for both its composition — which earned Spring the NZIPP/Epson Iris Portrait Creative Photographer of the Year award in 2014 — and its positive message. While Violet may not be fully able-bodied, Spring said she wants her to understand her limitless potential.

an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
Cleopatra was a Greek. She was a descendant of Ptolemy, one of the Alexander’s successor kings who ruled Egypt after the fragmentation of the Macedonian empire. Her likeness was on coinage, but is not really found on many monuments and she sure as shit wasn’t mummified. After Augustus defeated Antony at the battle of Actium, Antony and Cleo committed suicide. Cleopatra’s body and her living children were brought back to Rome as the centerpieces of a triumph where Augustus hung her dead body again and likely burned it afterwards. Her children by Antony were spared, but her son, supposedly by Julius Caesar, Caesarian was put to death.
