  18. This is such an awesome collection of photographs! I think it's awesome how you separate your blogging by subject for every day of the week. It's very inspiring, especially since I can never stay consistent, or think of what to write about!

  27. The pleasure is mine, Dani! ;)
    Oh, my secret is TinEye.com. It's a reverse image search and it also has a plugin for Firefox. It's very usefull, although it doesn't always find the image matches. Let's say it's 80% efficient.
