i stumbled onto a blog
that i like quite a lot – vulgare.net – a collection of landscape, architecture and art images. mostly, the images aren’t original. there’s very little text and what’s there isn’t really critical. but the images are well-curated. some of my favorite things are illustrated – carlo scarpa’s brion-vega cemetary, derek jarman’s prospect cottage, the high line in chelsea (http://toddhosfelt.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/the-first-phase-of-the-highline/), piet oudolf’s work.
and there were some delightful discoveries -
helmut smits’ “street fountain” 2002 (an intervention in an existing pot hole):
and vesting bourtange:

mineo mizuno’s beautiful ceramic and moss sculptures:
helmut dick’s “lettuce field as big as a sky-scraper building” 2001
this is a blog that’s worth getting sucked into. check it out.
