More random shots in Paris, mostly in the Left Bank. Cosy seating with Ben Franklin watching on from behind. That is one ancient wall inside this café. When you see iron studs in a door, they are really ancient. I love this sign. It’s the Year of the Rat for the Chinese New Year as seen by the tea offered at Marriage Freres, along with a porcelain rat.

Modesti: Kobe Bryant’s story presents unique triumphs and tragedy

We’re all too used to the tragedy of a great athlete dying young. We make movies about such sad figures: Lou Gehrig. Steve Prefontaine. Brian Piccolo. We’re not as prepared, it turns out, to handle the tragedy of a great ex-athlete dying young. It’s one of the reasons that Bryant’s Song is a different story. By the time he died at age 41 along with his daughter Gianna and seven others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday, Kobe Bryant was into a second act that was all the more amazing to...

Buddhist street musician surprise

Tokyo is a city of contrasts, as well as constant surprises, so even if you know what’s round the next corner, you never really know what you are going to see. It could, for example, be a Buddhist playing a bamboo flute. Or possibly even more unexpected, a foreign person taking photographs.

I am bananas for these behind-the-scenes photos of Planet of the Apes

Makeup artist John Chambers' work on Planet of the Apes (1968) is a high point in Hollywood prosthetics. The characters don't look like real apes, but they have an interesting mix of ape and human. Combined with costume designer Morton Haack's outfits, the overall effect is spectacular and unforgettable. I learned that photographer Dennis Stock took a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos during the shooting of the movie, and you can browse them at Magnum Photos. [via Flashbak]

If there’s one thing that I hold has a high priority for my life and my family, it’s travel.
