365 Photo Project
January 31, 2010 § Leave a comment
Tomorrow, on February 1st, I’m starting a 365 photo project, where I’ll post one photo yeach day for a year (photo credit).
I will strive to post mostly fresh photos, but I will also post some old ones I’ve dug out from the archives.
I’ve set up a separate blog for this project, at http://sterileeye365.wordpress.com. Be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed or subscribe by email at the site. I will also post the updates on Twitter.
Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I’ll hopefully do!
UPDATE (05.10.10): The 365 blog has been shut down and the photos archived here.

We always found one, but they didn’t always come easy. « Read the rest of this entry »
A Video and a Great Blog

Two things caught my attention this last week:
- The video above, from KORB, directed by Rimantas Lukavicius. Absolutely stunning! Hat tip to Street Anatomy.
- The blog Medical Moments in 55 Words, where internist WordDoc writes about her patient encounters using only 55 words. The result has almost haiku-like qualities. Best blog I’ve read in ages!
