My name is David, this is my personal tumblr, so it's essentially a collection of stuff that appeals to me. I'm 24, Canadian, and a Leo. I like a variety of things including hockey, architecture, poetry, photography, gaming, working out, mythology, art, comics, tattoos, vintage stuff, jewelry, zodiac related stuff, psychology, nature, music, interior design, gems and rocks, animals, clothes, whatever I deem beautiful, and much more. 389 songs on my playlist as of right now, it's always growing. Open another tab and have a listen. And please, ask away. I won't bite.Home Ask Archive deviantART Me Instagram

The Russian single-edged hunting dagger has an octagonal-form handle crafted of solid polished agate displaying patterning. The nielloed silver mounts adorn the pommel, bolster and the scabbard and feature various hunting scenes executed in great detail. There are narrow fullers along the back edge of both sides of the blade. The scabbard is sheathed in dyed green lizard skin.
I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
