I'm ready for a beach picnic.  Not even the kind where you wear bathing suits and need to sit under am umbrella (although that would be nice too) but rather those spring picnics where you roll up your jeans, let the sand go through your toes for the first time of the season and maybe fly a kite or drip your feet in the still-freezing ocean.  The winter has been long and it's been difficult to motivate and get back to regularly scheduled programming around here since Spring Break ended this week.  I'm looking forward to a weekend in the country with our little family.  I think it's just what I need to start Monday on the right foot.  Hope you have a great one where ever you are and here are some fun links from around the web.

Don't forget Adorama is offering a 35% discount on all 8x8 books to my readers!

Where do you draw the line between inspiration and infringement in photography?

Zou bisou bisou! Mad Men is back this weekend and I am so excited!  Fancy a video of Roger Sterling's best one-liners?

Love these impressionist-like paintings by artist Kristy Gammill.

Gorgeous hand-rendered artwork by Italian artist Giosetta Fioroni.

British artist Claire Milner uses up to 65,000 crystals to create these stunning portraits.

A woman in Canada was arrested after she posted a photo of anti-police graffiti to her Instagram feed.

How to clone pictures, that is. 

How secure is your password? I have a few...apparently one of mine would take a 11 minutes and the other would take 1000 years!  Guess I have something else to add to my to-do list for next week. And, now my husband states the obvious (although not at first to me) that I should change my passwords because I just tested them on a random site.  via Cupcakes and Cashmere

Photographer Theron Humphrey rescued coonhound named Maddie and took pictures of her standing on random things (a tree, a watermelon, a fridge!) and made an awesome book.

Random photos of Marilyn Monroe doing yoga poses (mostly headstands).

And, did you catch my tips this week on how to capture emotion in your pictures?
