Euro Blondes

In the home country of Barbie, Pamela Anderson, Jessica Simpson, and many other insignificant blondes,

I thought I should give some credits to the original, and spicy ones that mostly came from Europe:

★From Italy : Monica Vitti  ★ From Austria : Romy Schneider  ★ From France : Brigitte Bardot

In the era of all digital images, it became more fun to play with analog pictures, and as I got my summer tan on, it means I am eligible for picture time without the ususally mandatory Photoshop retouching … Here is a quick round-up of the Photobooth (or Photomaton in French) in NYC:

1. Coney Island

Deno’s Wonder Wheel – 3059 W 12th St. Brooklyn, NY 11224- Color

Inspiration

Close up at the wall decoration @ Anthropolgy

Yesterday I went to the Anthropologie store on 5th Ave & 16th street and they had the Xmas decoration full on already:

Here is a close up,  it is made out of paper cups stick together, and reminded me strongly of  a great artist I have seen for the first time at the Met a couple years ago…
