55. Nothing can stop a dog from getting its ball…

What an innovative idea to shoot man’s best friend underwater.  I’m sure someone will have a problem with this photo shoot but I think it’s amazing.  I’m sure each dog is thinking, “Mine!  Mine!  Mine!  Wait, what?  Where am I?”

21. Have you ever wondered…

Who took the haunting picture of the girl with the bright blue eyes from the 1984 cover of National Geographic?  Now, thanks to Wired’s Raw File site (“Exposing The Wired World, One Photo At A Time”) we get to see a glimpse into the world of those behind the lens.  In other words, we see photos of photographers holding their own photographs.  All forms of the word photography are well represented in this article.

2. 3191 Visual Blogging

I absolutely LOVE this idea: http://3191.visualblogging.com/

Welcome to the new 3191 Miles Apart! Here we post weekly thoughts and images about simple living and our current inspirations. You will find pieces on food and drink, our homes and everyday lives, our neighborhoods, our inspirations and our travels. We post on Fridays (or on the weekend if we’re running behind) and do not discuss our ideas at all beforehand. Happily, we will also be continuing our tradition, now in its fourth year, of diptychs. Each week we will take photographs on Sundays to be paired together here; as ever, MAV is always on the left, Stephanie on the right. We will title this new project, appropriately, A Year of Sundays.

Thanks so much for sharing this experience with us!
—Stephanie & MAV
