Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #195

Start your Monday off right:

  1. I randomly discovered the Sampson Boat Co's youtube series on rebuilding the Tally Ho, a 1910 Gaff Cutter, by hand and quickly binged watched all the episodes. The ship was scheduled to be destroyed. Now its being rebuild board by board.    
  2. The Tables documentary is about the diverse characters who play table tennis at Bryant Park in NYC. Its a wonderful story and beautifully shot.
  3. Hobo Graffiti supposedly was the practice of painting different symbols on buildings and structures as a way to pass message from one hobo to another. There is some disagreement about whether its a true story but I thought it was interesting. 
  4. I found two lists of photographers worthy of a share. Huckberry compiled 10 Travel Photographers With Follow-worthy Instagrams. The other is Andy Adams's  10 Midwest Photographers You Should Follow.
  5. The upcoming Gary Winogrand documentary, "Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable", looks great. I will definitely try to see this when it comes out. 
  6. “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
    ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
  7. Toshiya Masuda creates these playful pixelated ceramic sculptures. I stared at a few of these as my mind tries to resolve the blurriness.  

  8. Zuzanna Szarek captured the constant present of McDonald's Golden Arches on the landscape. 

  9. Olivia Kemp creates these sprawling drawings of cities that you can spend hours discovering all the elements hidden in them. 

  10. I love this Austin Kleon's talk, Creative is not a noun, and I figured I would share it again in case you didnt see it the first time.
