Linking to stuff from boingboing is a bit of a cop out. But I was really taken by these two stories this week.
First up, is the story of the guy who took a photograph of himself every day for 18 or so years. It's a very interesting story. Please check it out.
Next is a bunch of colour photographs from 1939 through 1943. The quality of these images is amazing. It's hard to get it through your mind that they're 70+ years old. Link is here. Some of my favourites below.
