Just how did people from around the world celebrate the start of 2010? They gathered in groups large and small experiencing fantastic fireworks displays at night then spent the day doing everything from sprinting into icy cold water for a dive in The North Sea, in the Hague, to trekking to Mount Fuji in the southwest of Tokyo to see the symbol of good luck.…
As silly as it seems that actress Kate Hudson struts her stuff in designer dresses during the day, I can't help but like this refreshing photo shoot by Peter Lindbergh. Perhaps it's the expressions on Kate's face that I enjoy. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh, Kate seems confident, cute and even a little kooky.
Also, I like how Kate is refreshingly honest… Continue
Jim Denevan is a Northern California artist who makes large scale designs utilizing sand, earth and ice. Using only a stick or rake Denevan creates massive geometric shapes similar to crop circles. From the look of these pictures many of these designs were done at my favorite morning surf spot in San Francisco. Unfortunately he must wake up later than I did because I never got to see one…
At first glance, it's easy to assume that these images were photoshopped. Amazingly, they were not. This custom black-and-white Santa Claus costume was made by Brody S. for San Francisco SantaCon 2009. To create the illusion, a grey wig, fabric, contacts, and Kryolan body paint were used.
"When I decided to make a Desaturated Santa costume, I realized that to…

"Daring" is one of the core values of Marie Aiello's interior design studio. What better way to express that than by using Dexter as inspiration. You might think "Oh another Dex house" No...just no. You see, this has been done with extreme good taste and subtlety. Interesting details designed to be overlooked when it's staring you right in face.
For those of you who don't know. Dexter is a TV show about a man who works for Miami Metro… Continue
I just became aware of this series of photographs by Cedric Delsaux even though it is now on the third and final installment. Titled The Dubai Invasion these are photos of modern day Dubai with images from the original Star Wars movies imposed. In some cases the viewer instantly zooms in on the Star Wars elements but for others like the X-Wing crashed into a demolished building it takes a…

When I see old toys it brings back memories. It does for everyone doesn't it? They
link back to a certain era and place, situations and emotions. But most of all, it brings out the part of me that wants to just grab that toy and create entire imaginary stories around them. Sean Tubridy obviously does the same.
