a book on Visual blogging

A Year of Mornings

an amazing collection of photographs from the blog 3191

"A Year of Mornings -- The morning hours before the hustle and bustle of the day commences is the perfect time to pause and enjoy a sense of renewal and vitality. On the morning of December 7, 2006, Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes each took a digital photo of everyday objects randomly arranged on their kitchen tables and, unbeknownst to one another, uploaded them to the website Flickr. Noticing a remarkable similarity between their images, they agreed to document their mornings by posting one photo to a shared blog every weekday for a year. Their site, 3191 (—named after the distance in miles between their homes in Portland, Maine, and Portland, Oregon—quickly acquired a worldwide following of devotees fascinated by the magical coincidences and pictorial synchronicity of their photographic pairings"... (quoted from the book)

Hello Koralee
Thank you it's good to be back at last and be able to catch up with some blogging which I enjoy. I am about to look up the link that you have mentioned, it looks very interesting. All those photos! Quite a collection.
That's the fun thing about blogging you get to find out about things you might not have come across otherwise.
By the way, your blog looks really good!
Take care

Thanks for the tip of 3191. I have read something about it but I was forgotten that. Pictures are great.

Can you believe. Cold weather is still continuing here in Finland. Weird summer.

Good night!
