Transportation — Pretty Bike Thursday
I do not have the time to crawl through the mountainous pile of images on ADV Rider. Luckily I have friends who do. MV Augusta 750S.
Another bit of history goes up for auction. Bobby Sirkegian’s 1953 Triumph drag racer “Pretty Boy II”
A nice little RD400 custom. Nothing extra, just enough to make it sweet. Nice resurrection.
I have a lot of photographers among my readers. So the occasional photographic DIY is always welcome. Maybe you all would like to learn a little about capturing images of the sun? Wired Science brings you the story and techniques behind Alan Friedman’s mind blowing sun photo.
Art, Images, and Design
Not your daddy’s Disney. Four great mutations of the Mouse and the Duck. Then four rather dull and predictable waifish girls. And then… then, Odo creates some Bender fabulousness.
Paco Pomet’s quirky, spooky paintings. Click around a bit. You’ll especially like Fabula (far right column — 4th down.)
Vincent.zp is a fan of packaging and industrial design. Among his many collections is a Flickr stream of face powder boxes. Calm, lovely packaging for a product not often seen today. The Three Flowers box was posted on Amy Crehore’s blog last week. And the masked character on this box of Cipria Mascherina is my current favorite. There are dozens of other inspiring images to found here.
God, I hate OK GO music, but seriously, animation on toast. It can’t fail. Bonus fish playing a guitar.
I’m off to be very cultured (Picasso exhibit, dinner date, and then the symphony) behave yourselves while I’m out.
