Two years ago, an author from the blog Mental Floss, stumbled upon a very secretive website. The site displayed a series of photos taken with a Polaroid camera, one a day, over a span of 18 years.

These photos were of an undisclosed subject's everyday life, displaying walks in the park, dinners with friends and ultimately, hospitalization and death. The subject was filmmaker Jamie Livingston.

Jamie Livingston released his project online, entitled "Photo of the Day," anonymously. The project's original site can be seen at the links provided. Stats for Per Diem Polaroids Trending: Older & Chilly
