I could go on and on with these photos of dashboards. All the little dials and shapes and switches and levers are like honey to a fly. Found all of these images on a site called team-bhp.com. The tagline under the name of the site says Redlining the Indian Automotive Scene, which pretty much tells you where these cars call home.
Vanves discovery. I miss Paris.
Dave Gilligan (a very talented photographer and graphic designer) and his new bride were not your typical newlyweds. As he tells it, they didn’t want to go on a typical “sun holiday” so instead opted for a far more interesting honeymoon on the Trans-Mongolian Railway. These photographs of windows were taken in Irkutsk as well as around Lake Baikal. Apparently, all the windows are painted a shade of Green, White or Blue to hopefully ward off evil spirits. Each and every one seems to me like a small fairy tale. If something about these images grabs your imagination, there are two books on Siberia that I would highly recommend reading: Colin Thubron’s In Siberia, and Ian Frazier’s Travels in Siberia, which was released only just last year.
As a quick explanation of what this is: It’s a “Presto” single hole punch. It takes up a scant square inch of real estate. Slide a piece of paper into the slot, push the button, et voila, one perfect little 1/4 inch hole is created. I have no good answer as to why I have this thing. But, what’s crazy, is that I’ve had it since I was 8.
