Did your boss unnecessarily yell at you today? That SUV cut you off on the drive to work this morning? Was the “customer service” person just unconscionably rude?
There are a lot of reasons to feel negatively toward (persons in) your community and the interactions that we have with those persons.
But thanks to GeekSugar, I’ve been turned on to the latest, greatest feel-good-about-humanity-and-our-ability-to-connect-with-one-another website. It’s called The Ones We Love and it is quite possibly the most warm-hearted, adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Seriously, it’s cuter than kittens.
Beyond that, it is artful as well, so really its like kittens in a museum.
The Ones We Love was begun as a project by young photographer, Lindley Warren, who asked people to submit six photographs of the most important person in their life. As the site itself asserts,
“The Ones We Love is a project highlighting young and talented photographers from around the world. Each artist contributed six photographs of the person(s) who is most important to them, taken outdoors in a natural setting. The goal of the website is to portray the people who are loved, cherished, and inspirational to these artists, and also showcase the differences and similarities in the photographs each of them took within the same guidelines.”
The result is a collection of wonderfully intimate and wickedly interesting shots by a large variety of photographers. Though varied in skill and technique, all of these photographs are stunning and awe-inspiring.
To get to all the shots, simply navigate to “photographers,” click on any of the names, read the introduction that the artist gives his/her subject, and take a lingering look at the six photographs. It tickles me pink and makes me smile even wider than the thought of sleeping in tomorrow.
