Just saying...

My uncle had one of these sitting in pieces in his garage for years. He eventually refurbished and completely refitted it and one day drove up to my parents house to take us out for a spin, it was the most exciting looking and sounding vehicle I had ever seen! I'd like one someday....Emma what do you think?

Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY

Greenpoint was lovely this weekend. Thinking about it, the pics above aren't all in Greenpoint, some may be over the 'border' in Williamsburg. Anyways, it was a warm and bright weekend where ever we were!

We will do it!

We will get the blog ticking along again, we will! We will work at it, with blood, sweat and tears. Moving on, I am getting increasingly into the whole idea that brands have 'the' pivotal role to play when it comes to making major movement in social issues, i.e. climate, poverty, equity, arts. Blah blah! And that it can be more than an add-on and actually help build business and explain their intentions. I am excited by it. Anyways, I think Levi's have done a wonderful job with their latest campaign. This image comes from coolhuntings article.

It's teeny so click on it...

It is a little geeky but it looks good and is also a little educational! GOOD Magazine post these great graphics every Tuesday, this one illustrates 'trade deficits'! Click on it because it posted small. Go here to see others.

Our Place

These are a couple of snaps of our new place. Emma is having fun making it look smart!

It's about time...

So Emma and I are firmly entrenched in New York now. Having settled in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, nr. Graham Av. if you know where that is, we have been enduring the sweltering summer! Now we are feeling a little settled we will try and get back into keeping Emma & Eckford up to date. Good to be back.

Melanie Bilenker

I think these are kind of amazing. Inspired by victorian mourning lockets, these 'drawings' made by Melanie Bilenker are photographic images rendered in lines of the artists own hair. I can only imagine the patients it must take....

A post inspired by motorbikes!

On the back of our recent posts about Everest and tweed (!) and general 'hardiness', which we love, I started thinking about motorcycle racers. So I wanted to post about Barry Sheene, a motorcycle racing hero during the 70's. I just couldn't find images that did his classic '70's cool' justice. However, I began coming across images of George Harrison, who loved motor racing in general, cars etc, and I came across the images above which I loved and thought I would share (Barry Sheene is pictured with Harrison in the first). I didn't really achieve what I set out out do, but hey! And yeah that's George Harrison in the last image.

I will keep looking for the right images for a motorcycle posting. I'd love to find great images of some old classics like Triumph motorcycles, like the Bonneville.
