Completely smitten with the Sign Painters project Jay B Sauceda, a match made in heaven of photography and typography.

    Nice, I think the very faded third one down is my favourite. Congrats on the 1000 posts!

  4. I hate to see these paintings fade away, but their quality is half of their charm!
    You may like this short documentary about one of the few mural painting companies left in New York: http://vimeo.com/11175747
    I think it’s shot really well :)

    I love photography blogs. That lawn chair photo is just something amazing. I wish i could shoot like that with my D40. I mean you captured some great stuff. Did you use a UV filter for that shot?
