humans of new york

my husband got this Humans of New York book from his godmother. 
in it: pictures of people in New York, made by Brandon Stanton. 
Some pictures speak for themselves, but my favourite are the ones with a little explanation.
check his website for loooots more.

the pigeon whisperer

"I'm a math teacher..."
"I wasn't expecting that"
"...at the fashion institute of technology"

"I look like God, don' I?"

it takes a lot of disquiet to achieve this sort of quiet comfort"

I saw them walking on two opposite ends of the plaza,
and started praying that they'd end up in the same place.

this kid looks better walking home from school
than I've ever looked in my life

i'm not a lookalike

Think you're special and unique?
So did these folks, until they met Francois Brunelle.
The 62-year-old Montreal-based photographer has spent the last 12 years scouring the world for complete strangers who look alarmingly similar.

we've got two big sansevierias for our wedding (thanx d &k!).
so I crocheted a "pot" out of cotton rope to cover the brown plastic one.
I am happy with the result :-)
