(I don’t love Notting Hill, but Hugh Grant’s panic-induced flub re: writing for Horse & Hound in order to speak with Julia Roberts is one of the funnier parts)
I came across these photographs the other day, and they certainly caught my eye. They’re done by Swedish photographer Ulrika Kestere, and they’re based on a fairy tale about a young girl whose laundry flies away. The responsible girl embarks on a journey to track down her various garments, and she discovers that they’ve taken on a life of their own. Here are some of the photographs.
Honestly…I’m not a fan. I think the idea is cool, but I think the visual would be better done with an illustrator or one’s imagination. These pictures creep me out a bit. It looks like colorful roadkill. Am I the lone naysayer? You can read more about the project and see more of the photos on Kestere’s blog, here.
For something I completely enjoy (and for the second part of the post’s title), there’s Maddie the Coonhound. Described as a “super serious project about dogs and physics,” the site is a collection of pictures of Maddie (my dear old dog’s name, too) in funny places, poised on strange things, and just generally being a good spot.
Check all the pictures of Maddie on things out here.
