Deco is Everywhere

New York ~ May 8, 2009

One of the many fun things about being in New York City after having not visited for so many years (decades) was finding delightful Art Deco designs everywhere I looked. I'm sure that when I was there in 1969 (?) I didn't even know what Deco was.

Chewing Gum

Oxford, England ~ February 19, 2010

I'm not sure why this photo doesn't show it as intensely as I remembered, but I don't think I've seen as much chewing gum on the ground in one place as here outside of a disco in Oxford near the train station.

An Ancient Design on the Floor?

Mosaic, Probably Roman New York ~ May 7, 2009

I believe this was in the Roman section. Since it's on the floor for everyone to walk on, I think it must be a reproduction or a design meant to recall the period.

Fan Shapes on the Pavement

Paving Stones, Pompeii Pompeii, Italy ~ April 17, 2004

I love the cobbled streets of Europe with their painted fan-shaped markings. I have no idea what the fan shape means, but it's fun to look at and adds a certain character.
