“In 1952 Eve Arnold went on assignment to photograph Marilyn Monroe for Esquire magazine. According to Arnold’s recollections, the now-legendary film actress was captivating and the photographs were a success. Their relationship, which started as one of mutual advantage, developed into a friendship and, over the course of ten years, Arnold and Marilyn met for six other photography sessions. The shortest session was two hours long and the longest spanned over a period of two months, while Monroe was shooting The Misfits. This book chronicles those photography sessions and includes a text by Arnold, which gives insight to Monroe’s career and personality.”

Bare Essential


A French Maid In An Italian Ristorante…In Bare Essential.

Had lunch with Karen Hoisington at an Italian Ristorante. This place used to be an Art School – SIA LaSalle. I remember that same location was the canteen for the staffs and students.

The figurine is one of many in my art collection. This one I gave to Charles on his 21st Birthday. Karen and I had prior arrangement that both of us would each bring something interesting. A toy was what we had in mind.  So I brought along a French Maid.

It started raining heavily outside after Karen and I had settled down at our table. There was not many guest so we could take some shots without any problem. All shots taken from my phone cam.

For the rest of the photos, click here.

Put up a board with the same title on Pinterest but be advised…

Scripophily is the study and collection of stock and bond certificates. A specialized field of numismatics, scripophily is an interesting area of collecting due to both the inherent beauty of some historical documents as well as the interesting historical context of each document. Some stock certificates are excellent examples of engraving. Occasionally, an old stock document will be found that still has value as a stock in a successor company.


Scripophily는 연구와 컬렉션 증권 인증서입니다. 고전학의 전문 분야는 scripophily 몇몇 역사적인 문서의 모두 고유의 아름다움뿐만 아니라, 각 문서의 흥미로운 역사적 맥락으로 인해 수집의 흥미로운 지역입니다. 일부 재고 인증서 조각의 훌륭한 예입니다. 간혹, 오래된 재고 문서가 아직 후계자 회사에서 재고로 가치가있다 것을 발견됩니다.



My Scrip-o-phily page on Facebook.  I have named it ” WorthlessStockCerticates “.  This is where I post articles or images relating to scripophily. Kinda like a bookmark of links to share with others whom may chanced upon the page but it will definitely serves as a very useful bookmark for myself.

As this is a new hobby, I do not have much to share but I believe it will grow over time. So meanwhile, here are some which I have already collected.
