Do you follow Humans Of New York?

Photographer Brandon Stanton has a truly wonderful body of work: portraits upon portraits of people captured on the street, usually accompanied by a poignant quote from the subject. Sometimes fans send in their own take on his pictures, like the cartoon on the right by Johanna Trobough from Paris, France.

In other news, I'm excited to be attending the Kidspot Village Voices Masterclass and Voices of 2013 launch party tomorrow, I still can't believe this little blog has been included amongst so many amazing others! I'm looking forward to seeing some of the faces behind blogs I've enjoyed over the years, so if you're there, please come and say hi, I'd love to meet you :)

Have a lovely weekend!
