Sightseeing with Susan

So here's the second installment of Susan's holiday snaps. (See the first installment here.) Cogenhagen treasure trove fil de fer. I think Susan sums it up best on the note she attached to these photos, "This store is absolutely crazy. I’ve never ever seen such amazing things. I believe this Danish guy goes to France and everything is from France. I thought you’d enjoy this store, it’s very special." Susan are you crazy? I don't just like this store I love it! Imagine rumaging through here looking for inspiration. Once again click on the pictures to supersize! Thanks Susan for sharing your pictures.

No, Greg Natale takes snaps of architectural marvels the likes of the Foster's Hurst Tower, Gehrey's Walt Disney Hall, the Meyer Ghetty Center and the Guggenheim . Notice though that Greg, the king of patternis drawn to pattern here as well. Thanks for sharing Greg!
