i wish i had more information about marcine miller (an american living in paris, i think?) – but i do know that her blog is beautiful and her photos are gorgeous (and BIG! i love when people have tons of large photos to scroll through). do yourself a favour and go get lost in her world for a little while. she also has a great flickr stream (how i found her blog in the first place, thanks flickr)

please appreciate these photos by maren celest, as they are excellent. the bearded man + trees double exposure is just amazing… (on film, not photoshopped) i would blow it up to a meter wide and hang it on my wall for posterity.
