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.

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- 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.

I am *so*, *so* late right now. I should have been downtown hours ago.But I was putting the last of my portfolio together, and you know
what? I just *really* like this photograph. Im not quite sure why,
exactly, but it makes me just smile and smile. I may print this one
large and frame it up

the trash can is chained to the lamp post. The newspaper machine is chained to the postal box.

Youre asking the wrong question, my friend.

The correct question is "Who would *throw* a trash can."

Well the design of these doesn't lend itself to bolting to the ground.

It all does come down to design in the end, you know... :)

It doesnt happen as often as youd think here. Im always amazed people don't hit the El (elevated train) columns more often, really.
