Mamika

Sacha Goldberger’s 91-year old grandmother was depressed & lonely so he did what any French photographer would do.

He dressed his grandmother up as a superhero and took pictures.

Frederika became Mamika and hasn’t been depressed since due to a little fame and good fortune:

Subsequently, Sacha, the grandson/photographer, is now being approached by Hollywood directors about making a movie.

Bicycle Reclamation of City Space

“Part design solution, part political statement, the concept was a finalist at the IIDA 2010 global design competition and aptly reflects this year’s competition theme of “Green Heart” – a call for using design as a marriage of sustainability and civic joy.”

Ultra High Resolution

The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch.

Totally worth zooming way in.  Watch.

Grew up with a nice rendition of this painting and it’s still in the family, hanging above my dearest sister’s headboard.

Weird, sis!
