Faces in Public Spaces - Part Two

I took these photos of Benny Bufano's sculpture, "Madonna Protects the Children of the World," in Fort Mason Park, San Francisco. I love the 4-eyed face that's in mosaic, even though I get a little nauseous looking at it. I also love the clean simplicity of the Madonna face.

Faces in Public Spaces - Part One

The neighborhood of Montmartre is the highest point in Paris, so you have to climb this really long, labyrinthian, staircase in order to exit the subway station there. Fortunately, the walls are lined with these awesome, brightly painted murals of deranged, creepy children. I love the messy, textured style, and how the blue really pops.

Nice Cans

Yes. I take photos of good packaging / display design at the grocery store. And these San Marzano canned tomatoes really caught my eye.

Food Packaging / Good Design

This Manner wafer display in my local grocery store was so pretty that I had to interrupt my normal shopping to take photos of it. I get really inspired by certain color combinations. I love the muted pink with the bright yellow. The Manner font is awesome too. The whole design has a retro feel to it that I really dig.

Clown Meat

How is this legal? ... If it's a clown, then... what?... it's not cannibalism? That doesn't seem right.

My almost 17 year old kitty had a diabetic episode this weekend, so I pulled out my rusty old vet tech skillz. Turns out they ain't so rusty! The vet gave me a bag of fluids to give at home, along with insulin. I rigged up this sweet fluid therapy set-up with an upside-down coat hanger, which I hung over my wire rack shelf unit, and we were good to go! Kitty is resting comfortably now :)
