Fields of Blue Flowers in Japan

In the Hitashi Seaside Park in Japan, infinite fields of nemophilas roll out like carpets of flowers on 190 hectares. We have gathered the best photos of this insolite place which appeals the tourists. Photographers must retouch their photos to erase the presence of people in the fields.

RIP, Alice Coachman, First Black Woman to Win an Olympic Gold Medal

(November 9, 1923-July 14, 2014)

Books:

Queen of the Track: Alice Coachman Olympic High Jump Champion

Heather Lang

At the 1948 Olympics in London, members of the U.S. Women’s Track and Field team went down to defeat one by one. Any hope of winning rested on Alice Coachman. Thousands of spectators stayed late for the high-jump event and witnessed history as she became the first African American woman to win an Olympic gold medal. In time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, this book follows Coachman on her journey from rural Georgia, where she overcame adversity both as a woman and as a black athlete, to her triumph in Wembly Stadium.

Touch the Sky: Alice Coachman, Olympic High Jumper

Ann Malaspina

A biography of the first black woman to win an Olympic gold medal, from her childhood in segregated Albany, Georgia, in the 1930s, through her recognition at the 1996 Olympics as one of the hundred best athletes in Olympic history.
