As part of their development into young adults, humans must develop an Identity independent from their parents or family and a capacity for independent decision making. They may experiment with different roles, behaviours, and ideologies as part of their process of developing an identity. Teenage rebellion has been recognized within psychology as a set of behavioural traits that supersede class, culture, or race.
There remains some debate as to whether the causes of teenage rebellion are completely natural or necessary. Some posit that an adolescent's failure to achieve a sense of identity can result in role confusion and an inability to choose a vocation, and these pressures may develop from being viewed as adults. Indeed, in the Western world the age at which one is considered an adult (in both the cultural and legal sense) has advanced from the early teens in earlier centuries to the late teens and even early twenties in today's society.

I used my Nikon D800 and the 70-200mm lens also by Nikon. For memory cards Lexar has been my choice. Natural light.
Established in 1942, Carlos Santos is based in the North of Portugal and has a long experience of innovating in products for men. Even today, Carlos Santos is one of the few Portuguese companies in the area to apply the Goodyear Welted system, a manual technique in which machines play a secondary role.
A 100% Portuguese brand which is named after its mentor, Carlos Santos, and which, year after year, has reasserted the quality of its products on an international level. Having taken its first step towards internationalisation 35 years ago, the company now operates in Germany, France, Holland, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, Spain and the USA, and is preparing to enter the Middle East.
We Appeal to Emotions.
We produce pieces that combine art and design, tradition and timelessness. We appeal to emotions and moods, we speak directly to the imagination of those who seek us. This is the key to our success, the soul of Carlos Santos: to always put what really matters first… everyone who makes us their first choice.
Likewise, our care extends to post-sales services, flexibility and versatility for the client and communication with the outside world. All these factors add value to the brand, which is renowned for the excellence of its products and the values it stands for.
The Carlos Santos collection is divided into two main lines: Santos by Carlos Santos (rich in carefully crafted detailing, aimed at people who are passionate about the art involved in this type of production. The look for this line is timeless and, therefore, remains mostly unchanged over time) and Carlos Santos Handcrafted (is the jewel in the company’s crown; a smaller collection with sophisticated design and traditional production – handcrafted – using a technique associated with Haute Couture.).
The production is 100% Portuguese and the materials used are carefully chosen according to the experience of Carlos Santos.
In response to clients’ requests and their trust in us, the brand is now investing in new products for women which are more feminine than before. Even though one of the new models has a high heel, the choice of materials used for female segment makes them more casual pieces.
Gold Man Sachs.
Sportsman, dandy, filmmaker and womaniser, Guntar Sachs was the last of the golden-era pleasure seekers. I salute a man who took full advantage of the privileges afforded to him by his hefty inheritances, to live an enviable life of focused leisure where he was free to pursue his varied interests and passions on his own terms.
Sachs was born in southern Germany and in addition to his German nationality, Sachs received Swiss citizenship in 1976. His energy was also expended on women. In the early ’60s, he was with Soraya Esfandiary, former wife of the Shah of Iran. Later, he ran with Britt Ekland, Tina Onassis and waterskiing heiress Marina Doria. Eclipsing them all, however, was Bardot. They first met in a bar in Gassin, a village above St. Tropez, in May 1966. “I knew the minute I saw her, I was going to marry her,” he said, while she recalled being “hypnotised”. They bonded over their shared taste in Rolls-Royces, but she turned down his first proposal of marriage, relenting only when he flew over her home in a helicopter and launched a shower of red roses. Even she had to admit: “It’s not every day a man drops a ton of roses in your backyard.” In some versions of the story, he followed this grand gesture by jumping into the sea with two suitcases and moving in. A playboy in his early years, married three times. “Playboy, moi?” Sachs once asked a rather presumptuous journalist. “I would rather call myself a gentleman.” He had a point.
Brigitte Bardot is a living legend. An expression she says she hates, one she doesn't understand. That doesn't stop her from being a living legend. More than an actress despite the cinematographic masterpieces (The Truth, Contempt, A very Private affair). A unique equation. The beatles adored her. For Andy Warhol, she was the first modern woman. Novelist Marguerite Duras nicknamed her "Queen Bardot", Catholic Novelist Julien Green paid tribute to her "pure Heart", while philosopher Roland Barthes unpicked her and Jean Cocteau thought she had "that je-ne-sais-quoi of a stranger who attracts the idolaters of an age deprived of gods" . Hundreds of millions of men have fallen asleep dreaming of Brigitte Bardot.
