Old and modern Tokyo together

A small glimpse of how Tokyo was, and increasingly how so much of it now is. Something I couldn’t help but marvel at — the colours, the corrugated panels, and of course the contrast. Having seen it all and more before, however, the owner of the house was clearly happy to just enjoy the growth of her potted plants rather than worry about the similarly spreading concrete that surrounds them.

Facebook knows Instagram harms teens. Now, its plan to open the app to kids looks worse than ever

The Wall Street Journal published a powerful multi-part series on the company this week, drawing from internal documents on everything from the company’s secretive practice of whitelisting celebrities to its knowledge that Instagram is taking a serious toll on the mental health of teen girls.

Photos from my past blog postings. This lady in the Normandy headdress was in a parade up on Montmartre. I just like the expression on her face. The staircase-there was no elevator-in the very first apartment I lived in in Paris. This used to be on the side of the Cabaret Lapin Agile on Montmartre but they painted over it. I saw these two nude many walking around Montmartre many years ago. They were promoting nudity. It’s not lawful if you wondered. The lady with the ca...

Prices are, of course, obscene, which makes me happy to be sitting on near half a case of the stuff. Having only the one magazine keeps consumption rates down...
