  2. Google sandwich anyone?
I put this together after Googling ‘Tomato’, and the amount of red adorning my screen was almost unbearable. Google ‘Lettuce’ and you get pretty much the same result, but GREEN. I thought why not add a bit of bacon and you’ve got yourself a sandwich! … Extremely sad I know, but had to be done

  3. It’s great to see the people behind these incredible photographs. I remember watching a documentary about ‘Tank Man’ and how Jeff Widener (the photographer) hid the film inside a toilet out of fear that he was being watched. Not long after he took the photo, the Chinese equivalent of the FBI raided the hotel room where he was staying. Had he not hidden the film, we would have never had the pleasure to feast eyes on what is now such an iconic image.

  6. Third set of Instagram revisits, capturing abstract geometric shapes and patterns in modern architecture (mostly from the Shanghai Expo 2010).

    The plan is to archive all the photos from my Instagram and upload them as sets for everyone to enjoy. I generally use Instagram as a third eye, capturing anything that grabs my attention for an inexplicable reason.

  7. Google Sketchup is the closest I get to playing with Lego these days.

  9. Ah, this explains a lot.
Much like my brain, it soaks up all the best bits and then when you squeeze it not much comes out.
