Beware the “City View” Room

February 8th, 2011 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Wary of the advice of others

I have a friend, a photographer, who loves photoshop mistakes. His favorites are more of the airbrushing gone wild variety, but I’m loving the travel equivalent: Oyster.com’s Photo Fakeouts. ” alt=”Via Oyster.com” width=”450″ /> The one above, for a Dominican Republic hotel, makes for a pretty great side-by-side comparison. Enjoy the blissfully solitary view above [...]

Where Won’t You Go?

June 24th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Blog posts by Betty, Novelty, The point of travel

I have a friend who is a hard core traveler. She’s been to South Korea and Qatar and Kenya and lived in Hong Kong and, well, you get the picture. Her travel experience, and the fact that she’s hilarious and laid back, is why I chose her to go to South Africa with me. She [...]

Two Tickets to the Riviera, Please

March 1st, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Good design

This web ad is part of a series I saw in this month’s W magazine, and I find myself returning to these images. These photos are effective advertising, in that they make me wish I was headed to Riviera. Or Venice. Soon.

The whole Grace Kelly-goes-on-a-road-trip-with-Diego-Luna thing is a winner for me. Something about the bright, warm sunlight in the tail end of winter fills me with longing–for blue water and a vaporetto.

Announcing the Newelty Photo of the Day

February 22nd, 2010 · 3 Comments · Photo of the day

I love photos of the day, especially as they show up in my Twitter feed. So I figured why not have a newelty version?

The idea is that there would be something fun, unexpected, or pleasing in the pictures that would make it worth your while.

Snowy, Sleepy Paris

February 16th, 2010 · No Comments · Blog posts by Lia, Urban archipelagos

Environmental Graffiti has a wonderfully curated collection of photos of Paris in the snow. Spring has come early to us on the West Coast, so this seems particularly fanciful and magical to me right now. It’s worth clicking over to see the whole collection.
