Two Sides to Every Story

When these bold ads first showed up in the NYC subway in early March, they literally stopped me in my tracks. And I wasn’t the only one who was intrigued enough to stop to take a picture that day.

Developed by the talented Israeli graphic designer Noma Bar, the ads feature opposing views on the same contentious issue–things like gun control, women in the military, and terrorism. And they are geniusly designed in Noma’s signature style to make sense graphically both upside-down and right-side-up. Or wrong-side-up and right-side-down?

Which side do you think is right-side-up? Go Voice Your View!

While spring cleaning my digital files, I came across this photo of a small exhibit posted on the fence surrounding the Jardin Lecoq in Clermont-Ferrand, France:

Inspired by the simple beauty of this image of the Ganges Delta, I searched online for the exhibit, only to find a treasure trove of images from space. The European Space Agency (ESA) has over 10,000 space-related images on their website, many of them high-resolution satellite photos of faraway destinations and close-to-home natural wonders.

Wouldn’t they be great as large-format prints?
