Summertime and the living is easy…. three blogs that inspire me right now.
1) FALSE ARMS
The blog “Armes Fausses” (or False Arms) is a color-based image re/depository. The blog is maintained by Ben Critton, who is learning things at Art School and sometimes makes other projects like Surplus Surplus Surplus. Every object is broken down by color. (Below is some screen grabs from “Orange”)
2) PET ROCKS & OTHER THINGS
The beginning of this blog reads:
“If you are a dreamer, come in!
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a prayer-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
I look at this blog right before I go to sleep.

3. GABRIELA HERMAN
is a portrait, fine art and lifestyle photographer. She divides her time between Brooklyn, Martha’s Vineyard, and Brazil. In 2011 she was selected for Critical Mass Top 50 and in 2010 she was named a “top emerging photographer” by the Magenta Foundation.
There is a realness about her photography that I really love.
