Is it not splendid? It a shot from Sydney, via this very talented photographer’s Flickr Stream. An urban space both functional and festive!
Hat Tip to Oh Joy!
The LA Times today has a nice story on blind architects experiencing and envisioning the city. Well worth a read.
So this is the pedestrian signage by my place in LA….
And this is where my friend David bought me lunch the other day.
It’s January. People are eating outside. This is why, even though urbanists sneer at me, I love living here.
I wish I’d had my good digital phone, but I only had my iPhone. These large installations grace a gallery in downtown Los Angeles and light up the dark winter streets at night.
I chanced upon this wonderful Flickr page, consisting of fireworks snaps from cities around the world for New Year’s. Make sure you play the video of the fireworks at the London Eye, as they are simply enchanting.
Fanguide offers an iPhone application that allows you to take six different “guided” tours of Chicago’s loop. I tested it out this morning–though, I admit, I was in loft in downtown Los Angeles and happy to be there given the weather situation everywhere *else*–and it’s great fun. Beats having to lug around a guidebook.
