One More....


I probably have a greater than average fondness for found photos, snapshots, crappy family album photos, whatever you want to call them. I especially like vernacular photography without people. I found these at an antique store in Chicago this past weekend. I'm fairly certain they are from the same photographer, and probably the same camera.

I like the way the photographer uses the square in these. I wouldn't be disappointed if any one of these photos were mine........

Eero Saarinen at Cranbrook

For those that live in Michigan, or all of you who are planning a trip to Detroit in the next week, make sure to leave a little time in your schedule to check out the Eero Saarinen show at the Cranbrook Art Museum.

In addition to being able to write backwards, write with both hands simultaneously, Saarinen also found the time to do a couple cool things. For instance, he designed an arch:

A couple of chairs:

And even an airport or two:

Both photos Ezra Stoller.

The show is an impressive overview of Saarinen's lifetime of work, which would be reason enough to go. But it also includes some of the best architectural photography from the last half of the last century, including Ezra Stoller, Hedrich Blessing, and Detroiter Balthazar Korab. Hurry up though, the show ends March 30. More info here.

Friday Funnies - Diamond Dave

If you don't think an unaccompanied DLR vocal track of Runnin' With the Devil is funny, then you are not quite as lame as I am. (Also, you clearly are a snob.)
