A Year of Mornings
an amazing collection of photographs from the blog 3191

Their site, 3191 (http://3191.visualblogging.com)—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"...
