Today I celebrate the hard work of so many Americans by not doing too much.  I'm planning a short run and some burgers later (duh), but other than that, I think I'm queueing up What About Bob on Netflix - to quote Bob, "I'm taking a vacation from my worries."  Have a great day!

Was lucky enough to visit Emily Blisten this summer at her oh-so-gorgeous shop, Clementine in VT.  Little Hipsqueaks has a wonderful post about Emily, her shop and life in Middlebury, VT.

7 Lessons Helen Levitt's Street Photography Taught Me by Eric Kim - if you're a street photog (or street photog wannabe), I highly suggest Eric Kim's amazing blog.  He's a student of street photography as much as a photographer + his site's a treasure of info.  Get schooled/get shooting.
