my tribute to 3191

3191: a year of mornings is my favorite photo blog. the premise is this: two friends who live 3191 miles apart each post a photo every morning, creating an unplanned diptych that, every day, is sumptuous and inspiring. the photos mostly capture fragments of what is ordinary about mornings: crusts of leftover bread on a plate, a toy left on the floor, rings left by a water glass on the counter. the trouble with the things i see everyday is that i cease to see how lovely they are. i get to thinking i need to go somewhere else when i want to find interesting things. 3191 always reminds me how i can elevate the ordinary in my own life, and see even the most mundane things with a fresh and admiring eye.
