Becoming an effective fireworks photographer is less about skill and more about understanding how to let the camera do the work for you and putting your equipment in position to succeed. by reva

For sixteen years, the whereabouts of Eva’s body remained a mystery. Finally, in 1971, Eva’s body was discovered in a grave under a false name outside of Rome. It was exhumed and flown to Spain where Juan Peron kept the corpse in an open casket on the dining room table in his villa. Juan was now married to third wife Isabel who combed the corpse’s hair in a daily devotion. This picture was taken in 1974, twenty-two years after her death. by fran
