These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Street Signs

Though these signs are familiar to me, I realize that NYC street signs are
often completely bewildering to outsiders. This isn't so bad, but there's
places where the entire pole bristles with signs like a hedgehog.

Pictures like this are one of the good things about mobloguk. What's ordinary to one person is fascinating to another. Keep posting :)

I meant to tell you last night, but I forgot. I took a video that i have up on my server here

(it's totally work safe, about 2.1mb) The sound is lousy, but it's a perfect example of that ordinary/extraordinary dichotomy. :)

Thanks for that. I found it fascinating. It's so different from my commute to work. Saw your web-site too. Despite your disclaimer, your words moved me. I envy you your love of NYC. We moved several times when I was a child and I don't feel allegiance to any particular place (except perhaps the city of Waterford in SE Ireland, where my mother grew up, and I spent a lot of time as a child).

Well I'm more than a little attached to this place. ;)

Glad you liked the video. It took me *days * to figure out how to get it the hell off my *phone*! *L*
