    I love how these change from what seem like 3rd person to 1st person.

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    yea ^ i love the shots of the meals for some reason

  • http://www.soshea.com Steven

    Hearty meals after a long ride are important, although they could’ve picked better beer. 😉

    From the sidebags, it looks like their riding BMWs… says the guy who rides a K1100RS.

    There’s nothing wrong with Coors. Don’t be beer snob.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      hahaha. I love Budweiser, there I said it.

      Cools Original is a treat to us Canadians, we don’t have it up here! Great stuff 😉

    I am an unrepentant beer snob.

    In fact, I’m drinking a much better micro-brewery beer than Coors or Bud right now. A delicious full-bodied brew from Oregon. Yummmmmmm.

    Microbrews… how pretentious, but to each his/her own. I went to a bar that serves beer in an enormous styrofoam cup for 3 bucks–made me a happy girl.

  • http://www.soshea.com Steven

    I’m really not that pretentious, but I do like a good brew. Cheap beer just doesn’t have flavor. Hell, Canadians generally make great beer compared to mass-market American swill.

    As I enjoy the refined design, illustrations, and photography of this blog, so do I enjoy the refine tastes of quality beer and wine. It’s all a part the equation.

    BTW, if I got a gi-normous styrofoam cup full of micro-brew for three bucks, I’d be a happy camper too.

  • lapetitefaon

    I am envious for so many reasons looking at these photos. And I cannot believe anyone could say a word against Coors Banquet! Best cheap beer ever! You can get a Coors tall boy for ONE DOLLAR in my neighborhood!

    this is what photography is to me.
    beautiful, its brillant from A to Z

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      yes!

  • http://www.soshea.com Steven

    Hey, I can live with other people liking Coors, as long as you can live with me liking micro-brewery beer.

    As someone who’s ridden motorcycles for a couple of decades, my favorite photo is definitely the shot of the “thank you” sign with the leather boots and pants—especially with what looks like a rubber band hold the boot flap closed. (I’ve been there.)

    That shot is quintessential to the culture. Anyone who’s worn motorcycle leathers will immediately relate, and smile.

    The photos of the food, while evocative, could be any camping adventure.

    Where are the all sick nasty shots of their stallions?!
    sweet riding boots!

    “keep those wheels spinning and the freaking beavers grinning!”

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
