Awesome Latvian Link!

One of the coolest and most interesting websites currently in existence is called Humans of New York. Photographer Brandon walks the streets of New York City, arguably one of the most diverse places in the world, photographing and speaking with individuals he sees. Take a look when you have more than a minute to spare, because you will probably spend a fair amount of time wanting to look at another photo and quote, and another, and another... The things people say range from wise to funny, from sad to joyous. The website is so popular that it even spawned a book.

Thanks to a post on the site Life in Riga, I was very excited to recently find out that a Latvian photographer, Linda Araja, has started an equivalent Latvian project: Humans of Latvia. Her photos are on Facebook, but are accessible by everyone, even if you do not have a Facebook account. Right now it seems that the photographer is taking a break, as the last photo is from February, but I'm hoping that she'll continue posting soon.

Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekends!!
