The Big Apple

I landed in NY around 4pm, here’s a couple quick snaps. I had to take the obligatory wing shot. I like the little mountain poking up (this was in Washington, Mt. Baker?).

  • Jim

    That’s Mt. Rainier my friend.

  • well i’m jealous.

    • Yeah, me too! 🙂

  • that band is awesome. they used to play at union square all the time when i was there at grad school.

  • I would love to know the Big Apple. São Paulo is as big as NY, but isn´t the center of the world. Wich means worst shows, museums, etc.

  • hey,

    what camera and lens are you using?

    in f5, check out the Moment Factory talk, there is where i work…

    • just saw the Moment Factory dudes talk it was some really amazing stuff, didn’t realise you guys did the visuals for the NIN tour. so sick

    • ps – nikon d80 with a fisheye

  • Great pic on the plane

  • The wing picture is actually a little cooler than most because of the arrows and the mountain. Makes it less tourist.

    ALSO times square is one of my favorite places. Where else can you eat, drink and shop at 2 am? Pretty much nowhere.

    • Kyle

      Tokyo, Bangkok.

    • Palma de Majorka))
      and goooood clubs

  • Erin McGlauflin

    Next time you go to the city, find the kickin black duo in Penn Station (I think that’s the name). A guy on keyboard doin a beat, and a tall SnoopDog/bum lovechild who plays amazing sax. The music is the greatest thing I’ve ever heard in my life.

  • Okay I’ll rephrase that then. I’ve never been anywhere else where you can eat drink and shop at 2 am.

    Though I thoroughly want to go to both Tokyo and Bangkok

  • Cool stuff!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
