A stylish Times Square and below that The Rockefeller Center, Brooklyn Bridge and the Empire State Building as depicted in two very fine vintage postcards courtesy of blog A Walk in New York. I'm not sure exactly when they were published, but my guess is the 20s or 30s.
In 1962 legendary swinging 60s British photographer David Bailey went on his first foreign assignment to New York. He had been commissioned by British Vogue to photograph his model girlfriend Jean Shrimpton for an editorial fashion spread. This is what happened...
Apparently it is the 150 year anniversary of the London Underground. To celebrate, the London Transport Museum is having an exhibition of posters designed for what was/is the world's first underground railway. The posters span the period from 1908 to the present day. I thought they were very stylish!
British Railway posters and publicity from the 20s and 30s were full of jolly colours and picturesque scenery. I bet they worked a treat at getting Londoners to spend their hols in the Northern parts of England and Scotland.
Not quite sure what this pirate chap is doing in Scotland. The two people in the background don't seem to be overly alarmed however, so he must be OK I guess!
Last week I had a pretty Sydney, Paddington terrace house for my shadow shot so, this week I thought I'd put up a Melbourne terraced house. On the whole, Melbourne's buildings from the Victorian era seem to be grander (see my Grand Melbourne theory here!), however, the terraced houses are usually fairly similar. They both feature the iron lace work and they both have the same detailing around the windows and doors. I think the biggest difference might be the climate and terrain! The fact that Sydney is hilly and wet while Melbourne is flat and dry makes everything look different! :0)
Here's another terraced house from Melbourne for good luck!

Theurel and Thomas have the most amazing store devoted entirely to their macarons in Mexico. It really is macaron heaven. Designed by Anagrama, these interiors are elegance personified the way they showcase the macarons in all their delicate beauty against the stark white.
I've only recently become a macaron connoisseur. My Dad introduced me to the delights of these fine meringue, almond power and sugar confections a few months back. I've become such a connoisseur that I've discovered that just because a macaron looks lovely, it ain't necessarily so! However, I think these ones pictured here at Theurel and Thomas would be pretty amazing. I don't know why I think that - intuition I suppose! ;0)
