Random Beauty - L. Casta

1: NGC654 supernova or some incredible space thing.
2: Bud, my climbing partner in Chamonix, French Alps 1999.
3,4,5 Sigh. Laeticia Casta (see below). middle one - with Yves Saint Laurent.

Once in a while, I'll post up some random photos of beautiful things. I'm quite visual, and enjoy art and photography.
Laeticia Casta - model, actress (the Blue Bicycle) and representative of all that is beautiful in French women. Plus she believes in chastity (a rarity these days). Incidentally, the true meaning of the word "chaste" is not abstinence, but sex only when Love is present. Quite a few marriages are not chaste by this defn.

Laetitia Casta is probably the model I admire the most - I first saw her interviewed in a documentary when she was about 17 or 18 yrs old, she impressed me tremendously...

So it seems we agree on some things, bro', a bit like in the film Havana, when Raul Julia (who gave a tremendous performance in the film, as did Robert Redford and Lena Olin) said, "Maybe what you really appreciate, Mr. Weil, is a really beautiful woman..." [referring to his wife, acted by Lena Olin, with whom Robert's character - Jack Weil - had already fallen in love, a fact which Raul had realized by then]. It's a fantastic film, if you haven't seen it, try to get a copy of it and watch it...

[An anecdote: Julia's name does not appear in the credits, neither before nor after the film, despite the fact that he was the main supporting actor: I searched on the Internet and found out that, for some reason (maybe bacause the film was filmed in Cuba), Julia expressly wanted his name omitted from the credits...]
