Photo of the Day 5.17.13 ~ Achieve Greatness

17 May

if you want to achieve greatnessimage by Eddie Colla

It’s just about controlling your own fate. If you make your success contingent upon the approval of others, you’re kinda following the formula for failure. There are few great achievements in the history of the world that were not, at first, met with doubt or fear or both. For every person who achieved something great, there were 100 who told them it couldn’t or shouldn’t be done. ~ Eddie Colla

You guys, Maja Wrońska is crazy amazing at watercolors! Check out her page. It is filled with beautiful scenes from all over the world.

Just wandering around her gallery made me giddy with joy.

(Her Facebook page has even more stuff on it.)

fuck yoga, smash the stateStreet art in Montreal (by the street artist, Harpy)

Link takes you to Harpy’s gallery on CargoCollective. Check out the rest of the pieces. They are all awesome.

Plus, Harpy’s bio is pretty badass:

Pourquoi Harpy? Harpy c’est une initiative spontanée, c’est un coup de gueule.
C’est des affiches pour la rue, des affiches pour Montréal.
Parce que l’embourgeoisement c’est très laid. 

Why Harpy? Harpies have wings (they can fly!) 
Also, they turned against the Gods. 
Also, gentrification is boring.
