More Google related art

April 17, 2011

If you liked my last post about Google Voice, you might be interested in these. You probably know about Google Street View, but you’d probably be surprised by the amount of unexpected things caught on its cameras.  The trick is finding them, it’s not always so easy.

Matt Bucher looks for artful and unusual photos captured by the Google car on his blog Apres Garde.  He’s also done an interview where he talks about his process.

Google Sightseeing is a great site for more Google Street View related findings.  I love their tagline: Why bother seeing the world for real?

Jon Rafman is another patient guy spending way too many hours on Street View.  9-eyes is a webpage with loads of photos that he’s collected.

Lastly, there’s been a lot of crime witnessed on Google Street View.  See this post. Or Google it to find many more examples.

Old Photos

January 25, 2010

Some photos I found at Kudzu Antiques recently:

puddle_sm

I love how it looks like the mom is lowering the kid into the puddle. “Go play with your brothers in the mud!” The photo is dated September 1963.

Anyone have any ideas where this could have been taken? Seems like a nice scene.

Photo dated February 1952, San Antonio Texas.

Mourning Photos

October 5, 2009

“The painting may cheerfully portray the life of the deceased, but to nineteenth-century eyes, the daguerreotype, in showing the moment of death, or one just afterward, does a better job at portraying the person, the essence of the child, his soul.”

Should I Call Alex?

September 3, 2009

Saw this the other day at a coffeeshop:

I think Alex would make a pretty picture of Wendell.

I blurred out the phone number since I’m not sure Alex wants his phone number all over the internet. If you want to call Alex, e-mail me privately and I can get you in touch!

My Life with Mannequins

August 16, 2009

As a boy, I was unusually obsessed with mannequins. I used to beg my parents to take me to Sears just so I could stand next to one of them. I remember once I got too close and tipped one of them over; I was terrified but the department store staff were all very nice and told me it was okay. The above photo is the only remaining picture of this early obsession.

The Robots Have Taken Over

February 22, 2009

These pictures taken at the Exxon on Candler St and Memorial. I think it hasn’t opened yet, but all the LCD panels were turned on last night. Strangely creepy.
