PHOTO MOMENT: DieselWave

 

An image of trainers, a television and 1980s gaming items produced by an unknown artist for the clothing retailer Diesel. Featuring their new SKB model of trainer, the picture draws its influence predominately from the vaporwave art movement (combining pastel and bright colours, retro designs and 1980s nostalgic throwbacks), but with a slight nod to the photography trend known as ‘flat lay’.

PHOTO MOMENT: Gorgeous Grandma Day

 

It’s cats that help power the internet, and nearly everyone goes mushy at the sight of a kitty doing or wearing human things. Today’s Photo Moment is this rugged marmalade tabby who has a soft spot for their granny, not to mention fashionably great taste in bibs too 😀

This tweet was made by Top Ten Blogger theverybesttop10.com, a long-time member of the HEM Community. Based in Wales, his blog covers the top ten of amazing things. Recently they’ve made listicles of the world’s oldest casinos, most expensive schools in the U.K. and the world’s ten most expensive postcards!. I’d highly recommended visiting their fascinating and very navigable blog. Who knows, it could become one of the Top Ten websites in your browser’s bookmarks list.

I’ll leave you with some words from TTB themselves, on the subject of Gorgeous Grandma Day: ” Many people around the world say that we do not do enough to honour our elderly. Just as well, then, that days such as Gorgeous Grandma Day exist. Now that you know the day exists, hopefully, you are already making plans to spend it with your own gran.

Oh yeah, and one more thing, cat food is a nightmare to wipe off a bib. Let’s hope Tiddles is a clean eater!

PHOTO MOMENT: Canadian elf coin

 

A 25-dollar pure silver coloured coin issued by Canada in 2016. The coin, part of a popular and recent tradition of countries issuing coinage with full-colour scenery and even holographic elements, shows a mythological ‘woodland elf’ on the reverse. The elf, dressed in green hat and suit, is busy at work building a wooden birdhouse amidst typical northern Canadian forest scenery. The obverse features a unique profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.

The coin was recently launched by the Royal Canadian Mint, based on a design by local artist Jesse Koreck, and is being sold at face value in Canada and the United States.

PHOTO MOMENT: The BT Tower

 

A window view of the BT Tower, in Fitzrovia, central London. I took this picture on the 28th of August, 2012, on the first day at my new office in Tottenham Court Road, after my company relocated there from our old site in Bressenden Place, Victoria which was scheduled for demolition.

The BT Tower, formerly known as the ‘Post Office Tower’, was first built in 1961, with construction completed in 1964. Standing in at 191 metres (627 ft), it was initially devised by the then General Post Office as a means of ferrying telecommunications traffic from London to the rest of the UK. It was the tallest structure in London up until the 1980s, and had its own rooftop restaurant which sadly closed in the same decade.
