..3191 Miles Apart

Year of Mornings, A : 3191 Miles Apart
Maria Alexandra Vettese , Stephanie Congdon Barnes
The morning hours before the hustle and bustle of the day commences is the perfect time to pause and enjoy a sense of renewal and vitality.
On the morning of December 7, 2006, Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes each took a digital photo of everyday objects randomly arranged on their kitchen tables and, unbeknownst to one another, uploaded them to the website Flickr.
Noticing a remarkable similarity between their images, they agreed to document their mornings by posting one photo to a shared blog every weekday for a year.
Their site, 3191— named after the distance in miles between their homes in Portland, Maine, and Portland, Oregon—quickly acquired a worldwide following of devotees fascinated by the magical coincidences and pictorial synchronicity of their photographic pairings.
A Year of Mornings, the blog, is no longer available for online viewing.
but you can buy the book here
