Friday Favorites

I can hardly believe that it’s April and that this weekend is Easter Sunday. I don’t know about y’all, but I’m excited for the weekend because my mother is making the trek to Louisiana to spend the weekend with us. And since this is becoming a yearly tradition, there will be much fun had, including planting my mini-garden, doing some mother-daughter shopping and some of our favorite Easter recipes… like chocolate cake and an Easter crawfish etouffee. (We’ve made these for the past four years.)

And it’s been a fantastic week on the internet, too. Here are some of my favorite things from around the web:

Photography

  • I watched The Bang Bang Club last Saturday night, on a whim after realizing we had it on Netflix Instant. Not only is the movie an accurate depiction – or what I feel is an accurate depiction – of combat photogs (based on my experience of running rounds with spot news junkie photogs), but it also reminded me of those former co-workers and our relationships. All in all, it was a fascinating watch. Just be forwarned: If you watch it before bedtime, expect to have dreams of being shot at on assignment in a combat zone.
  • Cincinnatian Amy Hildebrand was born blind, and she is a professional photographer. She uses her camera for sight, and she is just about complete with her 1000 photos in 1000 days project, started in 2009.
  • These photos, made by photographer Richard Stultz, stress me out. So. Many. Choices. (And they’re SO busy, too!)

Odds & Ends

Happy Easter weekend!

What’s on tap for you?

That page of Saved By The Bell gifs gives me the perfect excuse to prolong the inevitable…work.
