I’m feeling a little braindead this week. Let’s just chalk it up to a little too much time spent on the internet, OK? I know you were really looking forward to reading another in depth analysis of the decline of western civilization or some other such luddite rant, but I haven’t read any articles to spark such an entry in some time. Instead, I’ve been spending my free internet time enjoying some of my favorite photo blogs. To fill the void left where my lengthy ramblings often reside, I might recommend a few (click images to visit site):

logcabineer

Logcabineer – wherein a Swedish man takes photos of his everyday hobbies, chores, scenery, etc. in and around his remote cabin 5 hours outside Stockholm. Stunning.

shorpy

Shorpy – The tagline says it all: “Always something interesting.” This blog is full of spectacular scans of old photographs from all corners of the US. All eras from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries are represented here. Sometimes the submissions are from personal archives and they don’t always offer some greater cultural insight (like the above, where a beach police officer measures a young lady’s leg to see if her swimsuit is “legal”) but they are “always something interesting.” It’s fascinating to see how people used to live.

2or3

2 or 3 Things I Know – Perhaps my favorite blog on the entire internet, and the most difficult to categorize. I don’t know if this is necessarily a “photo” blog, as much as an appreciation-of-all-things-beautiful blog. People, places, buildings, art, design, textiles, fashion, furniture, and so forth are all featured, and the accompanying text is as graceful as each photo. Reading this blog is like a relaxing conversation with an old friend.

sartorialist

The Sartorialist – Street fashion photo blogs are almost as common as home business sites nowadays, but as far as I’m concerned, the Sartorialist still reigns supreme. Anyone with a camera can take photos of people in odd outfits (and believe me, they do!), but Mr. Schuman has always succeeded with his keen eye for those who dress great. High-fashion models, low-brow hustlers, side-stepping students, and even some blue-collar workers all fill frames on this award-winning blog where anything goes – so long as it has style.
