If you haven't, you'll want to check out this video right away. And even if you have, you may want to see it again and monitor your vitals. Does your heart race? Do your palms sweat?

It's fascinating on so many levels. Check out the video/blog here.


The Mystery of Vivian Maier


In the mood for a mystery?

Although she took over 150,000 images, she never tried to display, sell, or otherwise profit from her photography. In fact, the photos weren't found until after her death! ​ Continue the story here.
