1. I read the Real Estate section of The New York Times religiously, and my favorite feature is the "What You Get..." series, which documents properties at a specific price all over the country. The latest installment, What You Get for $600,000
has an especially swanky find in Miami.
2. Ben and I have recently been discussing the concept of "Christian Humanism", and he found this powerful article
articulating the concept that, "Those who are pro-life and pro-family should have no problem being pro-human." The author, works for Focus on the Family, which is not an organization you will usually find us referring to, but this piece is worth reading twice.
3. If I were going to have a baby, and then spend $236 on 50 designer announcements, these would be the ones.
a. I love photographers' blogs, but few have as good of insights into the life of a photojournalist as Justin Mott's. Justin is a photographer based in Hanoi, Vietnam and his recent post
about whether or not humanitarian photojournalism can actually make a difference is a great read accompanied by gorgeous images.
b. Such a large portion of modern photography is sharp, polished and predictable, which is why this collections of images
from photographer Christopher Anderson are some of my recent favorites. He took a plastic "toy camera" with him on assignments around the world and these images are the result.
c. Banksy is an English graffiti artist whose humorous, striking and typically anti-establishment work covers the streets of London. My favorite installment
, however, is from an exhibition in a Los Angeles warehouse. The "elephant in the room" represents society's intentional ignorance of poverty.
