This is a long post, hope you are still with me! I am sure you are tired of my Olympics obsession by now, but maybe you aren't tired of seeing beautiful, moving photographs? One of the things that is so amazing about the Olympics is that they only come around every four years, so athletes are left alternately heartbroken or triumphant when their event is over and they look back on the years of work they put in to get to that moment. It makes for some pretty dramatic photos and the New York Times photographers have been there every step of the way. Above are some of my favorites, but you can see many more stunning shots here.
On another note, remember earlier this week when I said I was struggling to find inspiration these days? Well, no more! Here are some amazing, invigorating, fun things I have seen around the interwebs recently and wanted to share . . .
The New York Times has done lots of great Olympics coverage including these fabulous insider looks at the technique behind winning difficult events, this confusing but fascinating graphic on medals, and this awesome look at Olympic torches over the years (I still think London is my favorite), not to mention this cool rundown of the fastest men of all time.
Saw these pieces in a Fab.com sale this week and swooned.
Yet another cool (and easy) DIY from Jordan at Oh Happy Day
A maze after my own heart.
These provide the perfect excuse to play with your food.
Single serving tastiness; I would like to try every one!
Brilliant bandages that blend in (say that five times fast!).
A beautiful web of information, in app form.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you back here next week!
