With all of the fantastic online options of posting your pictures, Flickr has really provided so many people with the opportunity to show off their photography skills, whether they are professional or just having fun. And while many people just post randomly, some are very regimented in posting pictures, known as visual blogging. Like writing, photography is something that many people feel they need to do everyday in order to practice their skills. Two such women, 3191 miles apart have been doing just that and recently published a book of their photos.
On the morning of December 7, 2006, Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes each took a digital photo of everyday objects randomly arranged on their kitchen tables and, unbeknownst to one another, uploaded them to the website Flickr. And the rest is history, so to speak. Each day, these women would post a photo taken before 10am that showed the little details of their lives. Kindred spirits, they have only met once, but their book entitled A Year of Mornings : 3191 Miles Apart showcases their gorgeous shots.
Each woman continues to take photographs and they now both contribute to websites about their ideas.
