Definitely the darling blog of the web this week, Dear Photograph encourages people to "take a picture of a picture from the past in the present". Got that?
Looks something like this:
We had nothing, but you gave me everything. Thank you for your
never ending love. I love you Dad
This blog features photos that readers have sent in -- people take their favorite/most memorable/most poignant photos back to the locations where the photos were taken, and then photograph themselves holding up the photo in that space. The results are sweet and funny, offering a way to pay homage to the past while acknowledging that time continues to march on. I would love to try this myself, there are quite a few favorite places from my childhood that I would LOVE to see again.
My Daguerreotype Boyfriend
Again, I'm going to let the blog tagline speak for itself: "Where early photography meets extreme hotness". Indeed!
I have to say, as an art history student I looked at my fair share of daguerreotypes and I never saw many lookers, but I guess I wasn't looking in the right places! Who knew our forefathers were such smoking hotties?
This site does make me stop to wonder, "were these men considered handsome at the time, or did women find other characteristics more appealing?" But I don't think too hard...I mostly just look at the pictures of yummy men. Here's a popular one of Almanzo Wilder (aka Mr. Laura Ingalls Wilder).

The Nutropolitan Museum of Art
Finally, a museum devoted to peanut butter. Isn't it about time?
|Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter, cherries, cherry preserves, and shredded coconut --|
this needs to git in mah belly ASAP
This site will definitely make you hungry, and might also inspire your next peanut buttery meal!
There are a few of the sites feeding my web addiction lately...what sites are you loving right now?
