To me, this beautiful photo by Olli Kekäläinen of a sea of golden grain is a poem. Hope it starts your Monday off with happy thoughts of warm sunshine, the sound of wind gently rustling through the the fields and lazy afternoons. Via eight sixty-one.
Have you been following artist/illustrator Lisa Congdon's wonderful year-long project A Collection A Day? Every day, for exactly one year (Jan 1 2010 — Dec 31 2010), Lisa is photographing, drawing and/or painting a collection — the photos are of the collections that exist in Lisa's home or studio, while the drawn and painted images are of imagined collections. I'm a huge admirer of this — such a creative and lovely idea. I've picked a few of my faves for you to get an idea of what she's doing — you can see each day so far (and follow it on the blog Lisa has created especially for it) here.
