Guess what -- this was a good week! Here's why:
• A few days ago, Marcus and Alex bought me surprise grocery-store tulips, and today we're off for a girls' weekend, mens' weekend and kids' weekend, respectively. We cannot wait. Respectively.
• I was thrilled to be a guest on Meagan Francis' podcast, the Home Hour. Click here to listen.
• Check it: the Smithsonian just made over 40,000 of its images available online -- some of them never-before seen. You can search and download them for yourself here!
• My friend Ryan Youngblood, an awesome filmmaker who traveled with us to Ethiopia back in 2012, just released his latest film covering the past two years of his life. Fair warning: some of his images are a bit shocking, but his technical skills are so undeniably breathtaking, he always makes me wonder what the hell I'm playing at with my own camera. Amazing talent.
• The awesome men over at Street Etiquette have published their latest travel photo essay on the magic of New Orleans. I have a sudden urge to head over to The Big Easy for some chicory coffee, no lie.
• This site, which tells you what colour it is: it takes the time, to the second, and converts it to the RGB code for colour, all while changing the background to the associated hue. I know that last sentence was completely, grammatically and code-ily wrong, but just click over and take a look. It's mesmerizing. And really calming.
• I've always had a secret dream to be a National Geographic photographer. But I think being featured by a National Geographic photographer might be even better -- click over to see my interview on Lola Akinmade Åkerström's site.
Have a great weekend, friends. See you next week.
