Say Cheese!

I’m channeling my inner Andy Warhol…or maybe not 🙂 This was a display of cheese making kits at Eataly in New York. Yes we ate there and yes it was delicious.

Blue Hour at the Louvre

Wow it’s been over 2 weeks since I’ve blogged and I think that’s the longest I’ve gone since I started this blog 3 years ago. It’s actually been a really nice break and I’ve had good reason as I was travelling through Europe, Paris and Italy to be precise.

I was uploading regularly to my Facebook page during my travels so if you’d like to catch up and see some of this on-the-go iPhone images you can click here.

While the trip was amazing I returned home to find that I had a flood in my basement 😦 I’ll leave that story for another time but needless to say I didn’t even get a chance to download any of my images until last night. With over 2000 images to sort through, cull and process it may take me some time especially since my office and Mac is located in the basement.

We spent the first two days of our journey in Paris. It truly is the city of lights and what better image to kick things of with then the Louvre at blue hour. This was taken on our first night in Paris. Having flown from Toronto to Paris on an overnight flight I was walking around with very little sleep. Sunset that night was at 9:57pm so at that point I was almost at the 48 hour mark with only about 2 hours of sleep but I was in Paris and I wasn’t going to miss this opportunity. The real hero in all of this was my husband who was quietly dozing on a bench at this point.

Venice Art Walls

A section of Venice Beach is a fantastic art gallery. Street artists can create beautiful works of graffiti art (“by permit only” as the sign says) for all to see and enjoy. Here’s a sampling of what you can find.

iPhone Friday – Art Extremes

It’s Friday and the weekend is just around the corner. For us, here in Canada, it’s going to be a long weekend as we get ready to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. To everyone celebrating Canada Day and to all my friends in the US, who will be celebrating Independence Day on July 4th, have a great weekend.

I always try to keep a look out for interesting pieces of art or sculptures when I’m out and about. This week I came across two that are both interesting and at extremes in terms of subject matter. I was experimenting with a new app I picked up, iColorama, on the second image and decided to give it an out worldly glow.

iPhone Friday – Art & The Vintage Car

Art & The Vintage Car…sounds like the title to an unusual book (or post) Actually the two don’t really have anything in common except being located in the same area of town.

Welcome to this week’s edition of iPhone Friday.  I’m taking you back to the Distillery district just one more time.  First the art. There’s a unique and wonderful gallery located in the Distillery called CubeWorks. You have to check out their site. Art work is created from Rubik’s cube pieces, have a look below.

Bob Marley – yes those are Rubik’s cube pieces.

Next…the vintage car. This wonderful vintage Dodge is permanently parked and on display at the Distillery. For all you vintage car fans…yes it really is this cool looking.

This is how one used to open the window in a car 🙂
