Love of mornings and simple things – 3191 miles apart

IMG_1566 (800x533)This is for all those, who are deeply able to look at a picture and feel (almost) as if being on a vacation.

Who love “photo-still-lifes” …                                                         

Who love simple things and are able to see the beauty in it.

A couple of years ago two women had -each – a flickr account of their own. Due to similar interests they came

across each other’s account and noticed how similar their style of photography is.

Online they developed a contact, then a friendship, then met.

And the “fruit” of them Meeting has become their first book “A year of Mornings”:

about 250 photos!

The two live in (!) Portland, Maine and Portland Oregon.

Every weekday morning, they took, without communicating with the other (and this is a very important and fascinating fact to know), a picture of their morning setting. May it be a Cup of coffee, a pair of shoes, a view out of the window.

The fascinating thing is how those photos match! Sometimes there are very similar colour or Motive schemes, sometimes somehow the theme is the same.

They made further Projects such as “A year of evenings”, unfortunately this book seems unavailable,


here  comes the treat, dear Reader

online free accessible:

A year of Sundays.

You might want to take some time, like 20 minutes, and a cup of coffee or tea.
