I am a web designer from Toronto.
It’s been a lazy Sunday here at HQ (which I’ll probably regret later) and I miss posting some of my photos online so here’s some random shots around my room. Except the first one, obvs.
My parents dragged me to this ice sculpture festival thing and I saw this Hazelton Lanes sculpture there. It’s apparently a shopping centre/neighborhood in Yorkville and I like to imagine how funny it’d be to live there seeing as my name is almost identical to it, give and take a few letters.
Hazel Llanes living in Hazelton Lanes… pffft!
This is a page from a book I got called The Art of Looking Sideways by Alan Fletcher. I’ll dedicate a separate post for it later, but that right there is how the Queen would supposedly look if she was from Timbuktu.
NYFW is almost over but I thought this was quite awesome: Photographer Greg Kessler captured the ‘before-and-after’s of NYFW runway models for T Magazine's Model-Morphosis as they got their makeup done before each show.
I like how T Magazine formatted his photos so that, as you move the orange slider back and forth, you can witness the magical transformation in front of your very eyes! Go see for yourself~
That’s some nice jQuery effects you see right there. This tickles both my nerdy and fashion-lovin’ self juuust right.
I imagine that this was likely a pain in the butt to do, as the photog had to essentially take two photos of the models in almost the exact same position.
SO COOL THO
Been noticing that more and more people are getting into this whole podcast thing lately. Sifting through the directory on iTunes, I’m starting to see many big-name corporations and networks, such as TLC, Discovery Channel, & CNN, releasing episodes of their own.
Does this mean it’s going mainstream? Sounds like it to me. Not complaining though. It’s still very much the underdog of all mediums, so I’m happy to see that many are realizing its potential.
Here is a compilation of podcasts that I’m crazy about at the moment.
I’ll continue to update this post as I discover more.
TED TALKS: Fantastic videos of speakers from the TED conferences held around the globe. Two words: Watch it!
H&M FASHION VIDEOS: I like that this podcast, although created by H&M, does not solely promote their brand but covers different aspects of the fashion world.
ETSY: Beautifully shot videos of real and inspiring Etsy sellers, cool how-to’s, and everything to do with the art of handmade goods.
I’ve been meaning to complete this series of posts for a long time, but it’s been difficult. I have zero photos from my last two days in New York and those pages in my little travel journal are blank.
Also, if I was completely honest with myself, I think the other reason for my NYC trip blogging procrastination is due to a separation problem, with the city itself and my time there.
I’ve constantly put off writing this post because I was stuck in that limbo that sometimes happens when you’re a few pages away from finishing a really good book but you don’t want it to end just yet.
Because that’s just it: I don’t want to close this book. I don’t want to wake up. I don’t want to go home. I don’t want to leave New York, dammit. Not yet.
For future reference, I will try to squeeze those last two days into a vomit of words. Don’t read this if you don’t want to. It’s mostly for myself, but here it is:
