Hello my friends and happy Friday to you! As you know, one of my favorite pastimes is perusing the interwebs. Now, I already have a huge selection of blogs bookmarked, favorited, what have you, but I’m always on the lookout for new and intriguing sites that offer words of inspiration, beautiful photographs, or simply a good laugh. Of course, it’s next to impossible for me to keep up with all the blogs that I come across and fall in love with, but I thought I’d share the love a little bit at a time:
1. I am in love with Jesse’s visual storytelling blog. Jesse is in fact an Emmy award-winning filmmaker, but his still photographs are just as breathtaking. Currently, Jesse is creating a documentary called Give Me Your Hunger, an incredibly inspiring film that “explores how the most compassionate and daringly driven individuals have taken the seemingly hopeless war against hunger into their own hands in astonishing, brave and even dangerous ways.” Between capturing scenes for the film, here are just a few photographs he’s taken within and nearby Madurai, India:
For more inspiring photos – and to see a trailer for his new documentary – pop on over to his blog!
2. Well, I seem to be on a bit of a photography kick as of late. Perhaps it’s because I am attempting to tweak my own photography skills, which have A LOT of room to grow. But I’m learning, a little (tiny) bit at a time. In the meantime, I enjoy browsing through photographs like those of PRAMUDIYA. His photos truly seem to capture the essence of life – little clips of emotion that intrigues and leaves you wanting more. Kind of like a Mona Lisa smile.
For more amazing photographs, pop on over to his blog or his professional website.
3. While I remain on a photography kick, I am sitting in front of my laptop with coffee in hand and find myself ravenous. I mean, my grumbling stomach caused my dog to slink behind the couch in fear. Somehow, this mixture of hunger and beautiful photography reminded me of Cannelle Et Vanille, a food and photography blog! Oh goodness, I’m salivating just looking at these pictures…
You can find the recipes for both the apple, gruyere and sage Muffins and the squash and leek soup here and the recipe for the apple, oat, and herb scones here. Enjoy!
4. And lastly, for a good, hearty laugh that should get you through the entire weekend, pop on over to I Miss You When I Blink. It never fails to disappoint!
