I read.  I watch.  I listen.  I share.

When I discover something fascinating, I'll put it here.

When I unearth something relevant, I'll put it here.

When I stumble across something amusing, bizarre, or intriguing, this is where you'll find it.

Once Around an Island

13 DEC 2013 NEW YORK TIMES: Photographs by Todd Heisler

"Twenty hours. More than 30 miles of coastline. Dozens of moments captured. The photographer Todd Heisler walked the perimeter of Manhattan over the course of one day in August. While the route offers a different perspective on landmarks and topography, it’s the people that make the experience so rich. Class, ethnic mix and even age change gradually, depending on where you are. That can be witnessed in the picnics and parties, the sports that people play or even the simplest of routines."

Vivian Maier, photographer

"Vivian Maier (February 1, 1926 – April 21, 2009) was an American street photographer born in New York City. Although born in the U.S., it was in France that Maier spent most of her youth. Maier returned to the U.S. in 1951 where she took up work as a nanny and care-giver for the rest of her life. In her leisure however, Maier had begun to venture into the art of photography. Consistently taking photos over the course of five decades, she would ultimately leave over 100,000 negatives, most of them shot in Chicago and New York City." (courtesy of www.vivianmaier.com)
