The Manhattan Street Corners — amazing photography project.

For two years Richard Howe systematically photographed every street corner in NYC.

From his site:

The Manhattan Street Corners is my working title for a project to produce a comprehensive photographic portrait of everyday life at street level in daytime Manhattan. Between March and November, 2006, I systematically photographed each and every one of the island’s roughly 11,000 street corners (the exact number is a matter of definition and, in some ambiguous instances, even a matter of judgment).

You know what they call the Big Mac in India?

So you think you know the McDonald's menu like the back of your hand? Think again. From McDonald's international, here are some menu items you have probably never tried before.

Good morning, welcome to McDonald's. May I have your order please?

INDIA

In India, there are no Big Macs because the Hindu people don't eat beef.

However, they have the Maharaja Mac, which is a Big Mac made of lamb or chicken meat. There is also a vegetarian burger, the McAloo Tikki.

NORWAY

In fish-loving Norway, they have the McLaks, a sandwich made of grilled salmon and dill sauce.

GERMANY

It's bottoms up in Germany, where McDonald's serves beer!

CANADA

In parts of Canada, have a lobster dinner with the McLobster lobster roll. Pardon me – "McHomard" (in French).

JAPAN

Japan totally reinvents McDonald's with its Ebi Filet-O (shrimp burgers), Koroke Burger (mashed potato, cabbage and katsu sauce, all in a sandwich), Ebi-Chiki (shrimp nuggets) and Green Tea-flavored milkshake!

CHILE

In Chile, you can dress your burgers with – not ketchup – avocado paste!

COSTA RICA

In Costa Rica, unsurprisingly, you can order Gallo Pinto, meaning rice and beans.

GREECE

It's not Greek without pita, so when in Greece, have a Greek Mac, a burger made of patties wrapped in pita.

HONG KONG

Rice-loving Hong Kong, has – of course – Rice Burgers, where the burgers are in between, not burger buns, but two patties of glutinous rice.

ISRAEL

In Israel, McDonald's has 3 kosher restaurants where cheeseburger and dairy products are not served because Jewish Law forbids serving "the child [cow/beef] in its mother's milk [dairy]." They have McShawarma, meat in a pita bread roll.

URUGUAY

In Uruguay, they have the McHuevo, which is like a regular hamburger, but it is topped with a poached egg.

Foam City — New Sony spot

The campaign sees downtown Miami flooded with 460 million litres of foam by a machine that generates over 2 million litres of foam every minute.
In the ad over 200 residents from Miami are invited to enter “Foam City” armed with the cameras from the range to capture reactions.
All the images taken on the shoot will be uploaded to an online database and is accompanied by a digital campaign that focuses on the technologies of the new camera range.

Helvetica at Sea — The collages of Carol Padberg

 

From her own statement:

Using the “modernist DNA” of typography fonts such as Bauhaus, Futura, and Helvetica, I create visual improvisations. I use fragments of found typography to take apart and put back together language. My work employs traditional painting media (encaustic and polymer resins) as well as materials that extend the medium of painting (adhesive vinyl, flocking and metallic films).

 

 

 

Lovely stuff, more paintings and installations can be found on her site.
