Links for the Weekend

Sometimes it is just the little things.  Like I’m thankful that we haven’t bothered to make our back garden a perfect carpet of green and instead have allowed the moss and flowering weeds like daisies to take over.  Otherwise, I wouldn’t have these little rays of sunshine to practice my photography on every day.  They’re a gift of imperfection.

I’m a fan of Chris Guillebeau’s the Art of Non-Conformity and his book is worth a read.  And his recent post about 34 things he wished he’d known earlier, well, I wish I known them earlier too. I think I’m still learning them.

“Passion trumps talent every time.”  Alex’s 13 things I have learned as an artist.

Award winning photojournalist Ben Lowy champions the use of the iPhone as a tool for serious journalists using it to capture stunning images from Afghanistan.  This is such a great example of how the iPhone continues to challenge what we think photography should be and how it doesn’t always take lots of expensive gear to tell a compelling story.

Just how powerful are you?

Five manifestos for life.  I need to read these every morning.  Or watch this.

Happy weekend.  Hoping the weather cooperates for the bank holiday and that you do something fun.

      I do like fresh cut grass but I’m with you and put it off as long as possible!
