many caption possibilities. “Wear your helmet or else” “If only this thing had peddles” “If only I had feet to ride my bike” “Why am I obsessing over a bike? I can fly, right?” “This seat looks much too stiff” “I refuse to be this bicycle’s cover any more! Good bye, bike!”

For my job, I have photographed a few cars ( for sweepstakes giveaways). The hardest thing about photographing cars is that they reflect everything. Head over to mitsubishicars.com. They have a great photo of the new 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse which has very graphic reflections. Quite a bold image. The graphic below and trailing behind the […]

fun furniture for kids

fun furniture for kids

Incredibly fun furniture by Straight Line Designs. There are over 25 examples of individual pieces on their site. I have no idea how Judson Beaumont and his 8 fulltime craftspeople actually builds this stuff.

Here’s a wall-mounted cd player. The speaker is cleverly placed around the cd.a nice, simple design. I could only find it on this English site. Any U.S. sellers out there? Mujilife is selling it for 80 pounds. Yikes! I’d pay no more than 40 bucks for it. Can it play MP3 files?

It’s hard to determine how this was constructed. I love the pattern on this fence for two reasons:1. The pattern of traditional repetitive […]
