Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #134

Start your Monday off right: 

  1. The declaration of the best burger in America is an easy way to start an argument. This list may not be 100% accurate but it does serve as an excellent road map to eat your way around this country. 
  2. Researchers inputted thousands of color names into a computer and asked it to generate new names based on the exist titles. The resulting computer generated paint names were rather humorous. 
  3. Camilo José Vergara has photographed the same street corners for close to 40 years documenting the changes. It amazing to see such evolution as you scroll through the images.  
  4. Unfortunately, I could never afford one of these beautiful hourglasses so I will just admire it from a far. The making of video is a fascinating look into what is required to make such an object. 
  5. Winter is generally not the time to visit the beach in the Netherlands but Aukje Kastelijn did just that. She was rewarded with a foggy day which resulted in this great photo series. 
  6. "YOU MAKE ALL KINDS OF MISTAKES, BUT AS LONG AS YOU ARE GENEROUS AND TRUE AND ALSO FIERCE, YOU CANNOT HURT THE WORLD OR EVEN SERIOUSLY DISTRESS HER."
    Winston Churchill
  7. Magnum photographer, David Hurn, points out that ‘Shoot a lot of pictures. Be a doer, not a chatter’ in this interview with Huck magazine. Its so easy to get stuck talking about what you are going to do rather than just doing it. 

  8. A lot of landscape photography relies on dramatic contrast in the scene. Petros Koublis took a different approach in creating this gorgeous image. The soft color and tone of the grass is repetitively echoed in the mountains and the sky.  

  9. Illustrator, Syd Weiler, talks about how pleasing others in her work kills her creative drive in her interview with The Great Discontent. 

  10. Seth Godin points out how selecting your fuel (aka motivation for work) determines how you spend you day. So chose your fuel wisely.
