Some more links I collected, just for you.
Some good examples of simplicity in photography from Photography Served Projects. Sometimes, less is more. Most of the time, in fact.
A reason to be proud of your bad ideas, over at Seth Godin's blog.
A free Photoshop Action from MCP Actions. (Full disclosure, I haven't tried it yet, as I haven't really caught the texture everything bug. But it does look like fun to play with.)
And, last but not least, and having nothing to do with photography but everything to do with deliciousness, I am dying to make this hot chocolate recipe from Tartelette. The only thing stopping me is that it seems a bit much to go to the grocery store and spend about $20 on ingredients for something that can be made much more easily for about a dollar. Or less. But I am going to try it someday, as I just love spices in my cocoa. (If you're not a hot chocolate fan, her photography is also beautiful, so check that out, too.)
That's all for now, I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season, and looking forward to New Year's Eve, just around the corner.
