Leen's Lens.

Life photographer Nina Leen's photographs of teenagers in the 40s and 50s are wonderful...

...but my favorite shot of hers has to be this one, taken at the Ringling Bros. Circus in 1949. (Can you spot the acrobat in the background?)

Have a lovely weekend! I'll be hosting a friend from out of town, and helping her build her Halloween costume. She's going as a table, with her head as the main course - kind of like this. Brilliant.
