a year of mornings


I know I've used this image already (and this week, no less), but there's a good reason for it – I just got the book and I haven't yet talked about it.

To say I absolutely love this book is to put it quite mildly! It is SO.VERY.PRETTY! I love the textured cover and the beautifully laid out pages. I love the lack of words, the empty spaces, the colours and the light, and the sweet simplicity of each image. But more than everything, I love the project! 

What is the project? A Year of Mornings began as a blog of daily photographs of – you guessed – mornings by Maria and Stephanie. They didn't know each other then and lived 3191 miles apart, but they had a thing or two in common; their incredible aesthetic sense comes to mind right about now!

Ever since getting A Year of Mornings, I've been thinking about daily photo projects. I like the focus of this project better than the usual 365 Photo Projects; but then again, I like the freedom of the 365 Project more… which is quite the contradiction! The point is though, I've been flirting with the idea of starting a 365 Project, with or without a focus… we all know what happened last time I flirted with an idea (oh hello, daily blogging in November!). Will it happen this time? I'm thinking about it.

If you want to read more about A Year of Mornings and how the project started, make sure you read their very inspirational blog.

    What I didn’t know is that there is also an Evenings and Quarterly edition: thanks to you I know it now! Of course you enjoy this book: I knew you would. Much love from Provence (soon Belgium and Paris 🙂 )
