STILL: a gatherer’s field guide…
Posted in blog favourites, nature, photographers April 6th, 2012 by pia

Mary Jo Hoffman posts one image each day  on her beautiful new blog called ‘STILL’. Conceived as a one-year project dedicated to exploring “the compulsive human desire to gather, sort, arrange, and document”, Mary Jo arranges her daily collections of found natural objects on a white background, keeping to a minimalist format…

My thoughts? Love it… so completely day enhancing… can’t wait to see what each day brings…

Congratulations Mary Jo, welcome to the blog world!  xx

    What a beautiful blog and concept. I think this will have to be a mandatory morning read for me. Thanks, Pia!

    P.S. I hope you, French Boy and the little one are well 🙂

    Gorgeous concept – thanks for the introduction. And thanks for the Paris By Hand book – have just had a week in Paris with my family visiting from Oz (I live in Suisse) and loved exploring the places you recommended. It was my fourth trip to Paris but the first one I really enjoyed, thanks to your creative guide.

    Congrats & so forth as well – previous responses were too long for me to get involved – you now have GROWTH to watch in your own home…
