...or should I say Chevy Horses.

A classic old Chevy truck with it co working horses nearby.

Happy Truck Thursday!

I have a huge love for design, I tried many different things in my RL before landing on interior and graphic design. I have always been artistic but I thought I had to go with the mainstream things that everyone else said I needed to do.

But I finally found what I loved doing and I get to do it in Second Life.

I combined many different designers and different sets together to get this amazing Living and Designing Space. My main focuses are; ionic, Cinoe and sprinkles of LAGOM, with many of my other favorites to make this scene.

 

Here is a full list of credits... enjoy:

L'Espace Darwin : Réhabiliter plutôt que détruire.

Sur la rive droite de Bordeaux, en bordure de Garonne des bâtiments laissés à l’abandon ont retrouvé leurs lettres de noblesse.

Aujourd’hui rénovés, ils sont un exemple en matière de réhabilitation écologique et propose un nouveau modèle où lien social et économie durable sont au cœur du projet. Des « graffeurs » ont redonné une âme à des pans entiers d’une ancienne caserne militaire, tombée en ruine au fil des années. Les bâtiments en pierre ont été rénovés avec goût et abritent désormais un restaurant et une épicerie bio, ou encore un espace de coworking, dédié aux start-up.

 

Darwin Space : to rehabilitate than to destroy. On the right bank of the Garonne in Bordeaux, abandoned buildings has regained its reputation. Graffiti artists have breathed new life to entire walls of a former military base fallen into decay. The grand stone buildings were well renovated now houses an organic restaurant and grocery or a co-working space dedicated to start-up.

The stairwell:

Why am I photographing a stairwell you might ask. Well, because it's a very cool stairwell. This is one of Saigon's super trendy Cafe Apartments. I had mistakenly identified it as 42 Nguyen Hue (Walking Street) which is also a great place to explore. This one is actually 14 Ton That Dam in District one. These old apartment buildings have been taken over by hipster entrepreneurs and re-purposed into eclectic communities of tiny shops, cafés and co-working spaces. This dim stairwell with its cool natural light filtering through dirty windows is worth the climb.

This is the result of what they call 'co-working': my son made a magnetic piece of art, I took the picture :-)

 

While we were ogling the makeover of Warehouse 30’s old storage facilities on Charoenkrung, local design firm PIA Interior went and did the same over on the Khlong San side of the river.

 

Lhong 1919 has reclaimed a group of old warehouses and a Chinese shrine dating back to King Rama IV (1851-1868) for its 6,800 sq meters of co-working space, eateries and art and design shops spotlighting the work of young artists.

 

The riverfront mixed-used project is a new destination for Bangkokians hankering for an outdoor venue at which to spend money on design products from eight locally-owned shops.

 

The brand lineup ensures that this will be a favorite shopping destination of moneyed hipsters. Zettino provides men’s leather goods, Hummingbird sells beautifully decorated plants, and Studio is showcasing Chinese design-inflected furniture.

 

Not in the mood to shop? Iberry’s new restaurant Rong Si serves up Thai standards, as does Thai cafe and restaurant Ploenwan Panich’s new branch. Karmakamet’s also has an eatery here.

 

FYI, the public pier on the riverside is not officially opened so visits require some trip planning. Try taking the river-crossing boat from Si Phraya pier to Klongsan pier and walking along Soi Wat Thong Thammachart.

Excerpt from Explore East York East End:

 

The Riverdale Hub is a social enterprise located in a centuryold building that has been adapted to offer co-working space, offices and event space for local entrepreneurs, community groups and artists. It also houses a community gallery and the environmentally-conscious Social Gardener Café, which uses its own rooftop garden for ingredients. The Riverdale Hub shares its location with the Riverdale Immigrant Women’s Centre (RIWC), which is committed to supporting Asian and South Asian women, children, youth and families. The RIWC also uses the rooftop garden for its programming as a safe space for women to volunteer, learn and help build their community.

the UCD College of Business is undergoing a €20m expansion to help grow its facilities to better prepare students for ever-changing work environments. This part of the €65m investment to develop the UCD College of Business strategy announced in 2016.

 

The new UCD Moore Centre for Business will open September 2019, and will feature interactive learning, extensive co-working zones, and a 320-seat lecture theatre.

 

The facility, under construction next to the UCD Lochlann Quinn School of Business at Belfield, will also include an Entrepreneurship and Innovation Hub, Media Suite, Skills Quarter Support Area, and THINK Lab.

Every chance I get with a new ear, I discuss wildlife photography. Those closest to me have become certainly numb to my consistent ramblings and have no doubt perfected the obligatory nod. However as it often does, persistence paid off!

 

Two weeks ago I was meeting with my boss and another co-working friend. With the precision of huckster days gone by, I masterfully wove wildlife photography into the conversation. To my amazement one of the ladies replied “we have eagles in our backyard”… a reply I have heard before only to go and find everything from pigeons to hawks. It was when she shared an iPhone photo of a bald eagle sitting in a tree and invited me to come by anytime that triggered my out of body experience!

 

This morning I showed up at her home commenced to capture some 160+ shots of this mature male. My presence and actions have been the cause of many eagles scream over the years, but in this case he was going through the motions, with nothing coming out. As I closed the gap he would open his mouth, always in the direction of the nest. I believe he was communicating with the nest in a range that a human cannot hear. I just hope he had nice things to say!

First time visitors to Saigon are sure to walk right past 42 Nguyen Hue on Saigon’s Walking Street. Once an abandoned apartment block, this nine-storey building now is an eclectic mix of cafés, bars, boutiques, salons, bookstores, co-working spaces, and more. One could easily spend a few hours taking in the local culture at 42 Nguyen Hue, sampling the shopping, eating, and drinking options and interacting with locals, while taking in the spectacular views of the city and river beyond from one of their charming balconies.

 

Thank you for taking the time to look at, comment on, and fave my photographs.

 

Let's make the world a better place, one child at a time!

This was the second section of NSGVC which I guess got split at Pueblo on account of tonnage limits?

Work has been keeping me rather busy these days so I haven't been posting as much as I normally would like too, but the good news is that I have some work trips coming up to Vienna and Budapest.

 

I'm sure I'll find an evening or morning somewhere to sneak out with a camera and photograph these lovely cities. Any recommendations for what I should absolutely see or do in Vienna and Budapest?

 

Or if you're a startup founder, incubator, co-working space owner or event organizer in Vienna or Budapest and want to have a Twitter speaker / mentor work with you, let me know and we might be able to do something cool.

Oshawa is a city in Ontario, Canada, on the Lake Ontario shoreline. It lies in Southern Ontario, approximately 60 kilometres east of Downtown Toronto. It is commonly viewed as the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and of the Golden Horseshoe. It is the largest municipality in the Regional Municipality of Durham. The name Oshawa originates from the Ojibwa term aazhaway, meaning "the crossing place" or just "(a)cross". Oshawa’s roots are tied to the automobile industry, specifically the Canadian division of General Motors Company, known as General Motors Canada. Founded in 1876 as the McLaughlin Carriage Company, General Motors of Canada's headquarters are located in the city. The automotive industry was the inspiration for Oshawa's previous mottos: "The City that Motovates Canada", and "The City in Motion". The lavish home of the carriage company's founder, Parkwood Estate, is a National Historic Site of Canada, and a backdrop favoured by numerous film crews, featured in many movies including 54, Billy Madison, Chicago, and X-Men. Once recognized as the sole "Automotive Capital of Canada", Oshawa today is an education and health sciences hub. The city is home to three post-secondary institutions (Durham College, Trent University Durham and University of Ontario Institute of Technology) and to Lakeridge Health Oshawa, Lakeridge Health and Education Research Network (LHEARN Centre) and the Oshawa Clinic, the largest, multi-specialty medical group practice in Canada. Key labour force sectors include advanced manufacturing, health technology, logistics, energy and IT. In 2016, Oshawa was the sixth best place in Canada to find full-time employment based on data from StatsCan. Downtown Oshawa is identified as an Urban Growth Centre in the Government of Ontario's Places to Grow initiative. More than 5,000 people work and more than 2,400 university students study in the downtown core. The downtown is a prominent centre for entertainment and sporting events (Regent Theatre and General Motors Centre), food (50+ restaurants and cafes) and culture (The Robert McLaughlin Gallery and Canadian Automotive Museum). Oshawa is home to a Regional Innovation Centre and offers start-up facilities for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Co-working offices are also located in the downtown.

The bees were attracted to the Irish-grown, green roof system which has a number of positive impacts on the environment. Not only does the roof promote urban biodiversity, but improves stormwater management by reducing rainwater runoff and enhances overall water quality. The greenery also reduces dust and air pollutants and provides heat insulation, which helps to advance the University’s sustainability goals.

 

The extensive vegetated roofing system is composed of a range of different plant varieties including sedums, small grasses, herbs and flowering herbaceous plants, all which require minimal maintenance. Species in the green roof may include Sedum Acre Aureum, Sedum Album Coral Carpet, Sedum Album Mini, Sedum Hispanicum, Sedum Summer Glory, Sedum Reflexum or Sedum Weihenstephaner Gold.

 

The build-up of the roof includes a reservoir board to store stormwater which is then used to maintain the plants. In the courtyard of the UCD Moore Centre for Business, a pollinator garden will further support the ‘All-Ireland Pollinator Plan’ with pollen-rich flowers and safe nesting sites along the garden edges. In time, the open green space will be used to host student events.

 

A new bicycle park will also feature as part of the outdoor enhancements around the UCD Moore Centre for Business.

A slice of the radical change taking place in East Liberty. The pot holes and bricked-in windows and doors of the old building evoke the scruffy East Liberty that is disappearing. The bright paint denoting a co-working space symbolizes the brave new East Liberty of leading edge tech, high-end retail, and runaway gentrification.

Excerpt from www.toronto.ca:

 

Face to Face/Tête à Tête creates a place for shared conversation along the street. With two unexpectedly long tables, flanked by continuous benches and wrapped with planting, this is a place for concentrated community conversation – animated inside the words Face to Face/Tête à Tête dynamically projected over all of the street furniture surfaces. The narrow striking blue and orange space promotes both intimacy within the bustle of King St, and deliberately intensifies the conversation. Shaped like boomerangs, one table angles toward the street, and one toward the sidewalk, subtly inviting participants to the table angled to watch the passers-by on the sidewalk, or to hail to those on bike and streetcar. The table is a central focus recalling big family dinners –promoting larger collective/community gathering, yet the narrowness allows for individual occupation, co-working, musing, lunching, and dreaming.

While we were ogling the makeover of Warehouse 30’s old storage facilities on Charoenkrung, local design firm PIA Interior went and did the same over on the Khlong San side of the river.

 

Lhong 1919 has reclaimed a group of old warehouses and a Chinese shrine dating back to King Rama IV (1851-1868) for its 6,800 sq meters of co-working space, eateries and art and design shops spotlighting the work of young artists.

 

The riverfront mixed-used project is a new destination for Bangkokians hankering for an outdoor venue at which to spend money on design products from eight locally-owned shops.

 

The brand lineup ensures that this will be a favorite shopping destination of moneyed hipsters. Zettino provides men’s leather goods, Hummingbird sells beautifully decorated plants, and Studio is showcasing Chinese design-inflected furniture.

 

Not in the mood to shop? Iberry’s new restaurant Rong Si serves up Thai standards, as does Thai cafe and restaurant Ploenwan Panich’s new branch. Karmakamet’s also has an eatery here.

 

FYI, the public pier on the riverside is not officially opened so visits require some trip planning. Try taking the river-crossing boat from Si Phraya pier to Klongsan pier and walking along Soi Wat Thong Thammachart.
