This guy has these pics saved in his digital camera in case he loses it or it is stolen. What a great idea.

So, I share a link to my friend’s snowman at work and my mate Laura says, ‘We had a good one in our road too’. Today, she emails me the pics. Check them out!
Just loving the detail…and the dog!!If anyone else has epic snowman pics, please share them!

One of my mates has posted these pics on his facebook profile – an epic snowman that he built today after we had a foot of snow. Just heroic!
Cheers Thom – good work!
Check this video out! A street artist, Joshua Allen Harris, has created these wonderful monsters and bears using rubbish bags and the underground subway ventilation system.
A simple idea executed brilliantly, I think!
Here is a selection of graphs and charts that cracked me up. Hope you enjoy them. Many more can be found here.
This artist, Luke Jerram, is placing pianos on city streets and spaces around the world.
As it says on his website, which you should visit btw:
“Located in skate parks, industrial estates, laundrettes, precincts, bus shelters and train stations, outside pubs and football grounds, the pianos are for any member of the public to enjoy and claim ownership of. Who plays them and how long they remain is up to each community. The pianos act as sculptural, musical, blank canvas’s that become a reflection of the communities they are embedded into. Many pianos are personalised and decorated.
Questioning the ownership and rules of public space ‘Play Me I’m Yours’ is a provocation, inviting the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.”
I happen to think that there’s more this, in that I expect that some people will be surprised at finding out another person’s hidden talents. I also think that if you look at the photos, people are coming together and possibly singing along whilst someone plays. I love the way things like this bring communities and people together; it just demonstrates that people do want to have community and that life gets in the way sometimes. Such a simple and original idea.
