    The Age of Average

    Alex Murrell has posted an article looking at how everything from Brands to Retail to Cars have started to all look the same, that design is just about being “average.” Well worth the read.

    16 Avenue South Naples, FL

    Took this shot of the Gulf of Mexico on a calm day when my wife and I were driving around Naples, Florida. While there are public beaches along the Gulf Coast, I hate that a lot of it is taken up by large mansions, etc.

    This is NOT Big Ben…

    Big Ben is actually the bell inside the tower…which you can not see from the outside. The tower is officially called Elizabeth Tower. Next time you’re in London, make sure you don’t make the same mistake of most every other tourist and say, “Oh! I see Big Ben…” Ya don’t!
