It’s that time of year.

#  50 State Mottos →

January 12th, 2009 at 20:13 // In Worth Seeing 

Collected in English on one, sometimes illegible, piece of art by Emily Wick. You can also view (and order) individual states.

#  Casey at the Bat →

December 21st, 2008 at 18:31 // In Worth Seeing

#  Man’s Highest and Lowest

August 21st, 2008 at 22:06 // In Worth Seeing 

Sometimes the serendipity of my feedreader is just shocking. On the same day I saw picture of both the highest and lowest man-made objects. They are:

UPDATE (8/25/08): Or perhaps this is actually the lowest man-made object. (via Neatorama) I have mixed feelings about a hole that can’t be seen from above ground being meaninfully considered a hole.

Two stunning examples of great design that perfectly fits its beautiful setting.
