I would happily sell my soul to the mammon for this car.
It’s a 1966 Bentley Continental S3 ‘Flying Spur’ saloon, one of only 68 ever made. It’s up for auction in Melbourne on April 18. I know I am being materialistic but seriously, what a beautiful looking car.
The NYC High Line, an abandoned 2.3km elevated railroad, was across the road from our accommodation in NYC. Since it was abandoned in the 1980′s it has mainly grown weeds, as has attracted graffiti and street art. In 2004 it nearly got demolished, but a group called Friends of the High Line (including actor Edward Norton) managed to save it and it’s currently being transformed into an urban parkland.
The first section opens next month (June 2009), so while we couldn’t explore it (bummer), I managed to climb some stairs and take a few snaps of the progress of the transformation.
I fell in love with this plumeria pudica that I saw recently at a nursery. It is commonly called the ‘hammerhead frangipani’ as it has long, hammerhead like, evergreen leaves. It apparently flowers year round in warm climates so I guess we’ll see how it goes in Brisbane!
I am absolutely blown away by how cool the new wordpress.com monotone theme is. I haven’t seen anything like it before. Each page displays a single post (a photo and some prose) and the page automatically changes the background colour and width to suit the photograph creating a truly elegant photoblog.
It makes me want to learn photography, buy a digital SLR and start a photoblog.
If you do photography and don’t have a free wordpress.com blog then now is the time to start one!
Polaroid will soon cease production of Polaroid film. According to David Friedman, the last product that polaroid should make is ‘a digital picture frame that makes sure the familiar look of a Polaroid photo lives on‘.
He even creates some very cool mock images of it both standing up and pinned to a cork board. I love that you can write on it by hand because ‘sometimes it’s nice to preserve at least a little bit of the old way of doing things‘.
I have just added over twenty more images to my home design scrapbook. All the images are thumb nailed to increase the page loading time. You can click on each image to view its full size. I do wish wordpress.com had an option for thumb nail size. The thumb nails would look better slightly larger than they are.
