Because everyone needs some inspiration on Mondays...

Steve McCurry is one of my favorite photographers. (Remember that Nat Geo photo of the red-veiled Afghan Girl with the enormous, green eyes? Yeah, that was him.) Anyways, this is his blog. He takes his photos out of their news context and instead groups them under general themes - play, happiness, family - which makes for a powerful reminder of what it means to be human, and no matter who/where/what/when/why/how we are, we all share the same emotive core. The quotes are pretty stellar, too.

    These are incredible! The weird part is: I'm not even curious what the original context is... What a great way to start the week! Thank you for posting!

    I wonder if every image required a famous quote, which one would be used most...
