2 new things (oops, make that 4)

two great things happened this week.

i set up a book club with 6 other enthusiastic ladies and tim got a new job.

he'll be a roving reporter for channel nine news. if you're not in melbourne, you can still catch his national stories, so pay close attention!

i love this city, i love my husband... hopefully i'll love my book club!

UPDATE: Oh, and how could I forget? Myke and Mil and Jess and Pete got engaged! There must be something in the water...

running the numbers

from the site:

Running the Numbers
An American Self-Portrait

This new series looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 426,000 cell phones retired every day. This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs.
