Alright freaks and geeks. I know you’re ever so addicted to the perpetual ponderings of the little mint fox, but I beg you please, PLEASE venture to the Noticing Project {2009}. Its been one of my favorites since i found it via Design Is Mine because well, I’m addicted to *serendipitous occasions. The two authors post photos of details they wish to remember in their every day lives, neither showing their daily photo to the other, in order to find the *serendipitous similarities.

I’ve seen this type of blog before, but I really enjoy the simplistic posts each of them have. I also love the fact that they are more than likely toting a camera around with them at all times, noticing things. What a concept, right?
