I’m making “quote pictures,” with quotes from books on stills from movies, or other photos. (I don’t own the rights to any of these movies, I’m just doing these for fun!) I’ve been having a blast making them, and I’ll be posting them here on my blog. Enjoy!
I have repeatedly told my cabinet and staff that we belong here only so long as we refer to government as ‘they,’ and never think of government as ‘we.’
-Governor Ronald Reagan (Sincerely, Ronald Reagan, 1976)
Pictures I took at our very cool visit to the place that the Los Angeles Times newspaper is produced. 🙂
This is an old printing press from the late 1800s.
It was powered by water coming down this clear tube and turning the wheel.
This is the back where paper goes in.
This is where the new newspaper comes out.
Paper coming off the ink-covered plate.
Some ads in a paper printed in 1881.
And this is going in to the facility that makes the LA Times newspapers.
The rolls of paper they use are HUGE.
These “robots” carry the paper rolls around the place.
Stacks and stacks of paper!
This is the room where they make the plates. Plates are what they now use instead of setting metal letters into a frame like they did in olden times. Once the news info comes in to this plant, the plates for the day are created there.
Famous front pages.
Now, the ink!
And these are the huge machines that take the paper, the ink, and the plates, and create our newspaper!
Just look at the papers wrapped around and coming off these machines!
It’s not just the LA Times that’s printed here. These are some other papers printed at this location.
And lastly, the big room where the newspapers are packaged and set, ready to be delivered.
…using this machine.
If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you’re misinformed.
Some quotes from St. Patrick’s breastplate prayer.
I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a mulitude.
Christ with me
Christ before me
Christ behind me
Christ in me
Christ beneath me
Christ above me
Christ on my right
Christ on my left
Christ where I lie
Christ where I sit
Christ where I arise
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks to me
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.
Salvation is of the Lord.
Salvation is of the Christ.
May your salvation, Lord, be ever with us.
