Annie Leibovitz / NaBloPoMo / Movember

I love this woman. Last night, we went to see her exhibit at the Wexner Center here in Columbus. 156 pictures later, I'm still in awe of her. I'm obsessed with photography and she's one of the best. She got her start in 1970 at Rolling Stone magazine. She's famous for unique shots that aren't always "perfect"... which makes them perfect. The poses and subject matter can be controversial but people are drawn to it. Here are some of her most famous photos. Even if you don't really know who she is, you've seen at least some of these pictures, I'm sure. (Or skip straight to the bottom for more blogging today)

Today is the last day of November which means NaBloPoMo is officially over. Thank goodness. Blogging every single day is hard, people! You wouldn't believe the time it takes to think of something to say, then actually write it. Don't worry, Lauren. I'll still provide you with reading material while sitting on the toilet. Hey, you said it, not me. 
Also ending today is No Shave November, or Movember for those of you who know about this whole thing. It's to raise awareness for prostate cancer. If you've seen men sporting facial hair this month and didn't know what was going on, that's why. Oh and crawl on out from that rock you've been living under. My husband decided he would go with the MovemBEARD look instead of a creepy mustache. I think he might keep it going until New Years. Maybe.

I love the photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. I'm not a big fan or the Miley picture just because she looks a bit creepy, but I didn't understand why people made such a big deal about it.
