Street Poster

Safety walls erected around construction sites are frequently plastered with street posters advertising products and services or movies and music. Some of these posters can be very creative and colorful, while others are just plain funny or weird.

This street poster on Spring Street and Lafayette Street in SoHo is advertising a chain of gym outlets called, Crunch. I am attracted to this poster because of its creative use of flat colors and cartoon characters to represent the gym's acceptance of all body types. It almost made me want to join the gym.

Theme Photo Update: Bruges, Belgium

First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone for playing "guess the location" game in yesterday's post.

Alice from Arradon Daily Photo was the first to guess it correctly. The photo was taken in Bruges or Brugge in Belgium. Bruges was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. In order to preserve the delicate infrastructure and buildings, few cars are allowed into the city. Almost everyone rides the bicycle or takes the buses in the city.

Here is another photo (The Market Square) of the city.
