I don’t ever take screenshots of tweets and post them on tumblr, but damn, I’m feeling this. [x]
That is me.
Thank you for capturing the spirit of my city. I love Vancouver, and for people who don't live here it can be hard for them to understand. Thank you for making the spirit tangible.
I don’t often publicly respond to messages, but I really appreciated this one. Thanks for the very kind words. It’s been a blast and I’m glad to see that the thrill of living in this great place came across in my photos.

We already liked Emma Watson. Now, we LOVE her.
So many books, so little money.

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.

It’s okay to get suggestions for books but I also try to read outside my comfort zone.
Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders is delighted to share Postcards for Ants, an awesome ongoing project by Cape Town, South Africa-based artist Lorraine Loots. Every day Loot creates one exquisitely detailed and utterly itty-bitty painting. The project began on January 1, 2013 as a personal 365-day challenge, which means she’d created hundreds of these amazing miniature works of art.
When Cape Town was designated as the World Design Capital 2014, Loot decided to do a second year of tiny paintings, 365 Postcards for Ants, this time using her home city as the theme for each piece. Although each original painting has already been spoken for, Loot creates 5 prints of each day’s painting, which can be ordered through the project website.
These are so lovely. And the video is so sweet too
