Victoria Siemer, also know as Witchoria, is a graphic designer hailing from Brooklyn, New York. Human Error is a series of nostalgic polaroids that depict the broken heart as a computerized error that may or may not be restored in a few mouseclicks.
Old, dilapidated buildings are usually an unsightly scene. In this case, however, miniature broken down houses are appreciated for being wonderful works of art. The series itself is based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. The photographs were taken by an amateur photographer from North Dakota, Ofra Lapid. They were then used to create small scale models.
I don’t think I can ever get tired of the purity of darkroom print, I should not fear and enter back to that magical room
LONDON BURGER EATER
Lately there has been a huge hype on burgers and London seem to pop a burger restaurant out every other day, so I decided to go ahead and explore a few myself.
No more in and out takeaway, but long queue and very bad lighten decor restaurant, I simply do not know any burger restaurant in london that does not require a min 45mins wait during dinner hours.
Honest Burger : SOHO
The first one I tried is Honest Burger in Soho, it is a chain restaurant with amazing interior decor, located all around london, for example: Brixton, Camden and King Cross. I went during lunch time, 20 mins after it opened and not waited long for my food to arrived. Lately I have been more into chicken burger more than beef burger so I picked their free range chicken burger instead and my boyfriend had the Ginger pig dry ages beef burger, both ordered house chips with rosemary salt and Beetroot with apple coleslaw.
I was really impressed by the size of my burger, it came with lettuce, tomato and homemade mayo which was delicious, you can really tasted the chicken very juicy and seasoned well. My boyfriend beef cheese burger was done in medium heat and tasted yummy too. The chips was definitely a good side, the way they cut the potato it similar to fish and chips’s chip chunky and full of texture, the rosemary salt was spread across the chips nicely. Overall it is a great place for lunch and suitable for any party no more than four, since they don’t have a lot of seating and sometime you will have to seat by the till, and I can see a lot of customer came in on their own munching away a burger with a book in the other hand, hipster.
PATTY & BUN : JAMES STREET
This restaurant has been featured on pretty much every food blog I read, so I had high expectation from it. Me and my friend arrived at 6:30pm and there was already a long queue, we waited around 45mins, there is not a lot of seating and only sauce of light was a tiny light bulb on top of each table, so not really to a point that was romantic but kinda awkward to read the menu or talk to your friend.
So I decided to go for the ‘Hot Chic’ chicken burger, marinated buttermilk fried chicken with spicy slaw, sounded so yummy I cannot resist. The chicken was bigger than the bun which is a good sign but very messy to eat, I ended up having spicy slaw and chicken juice running all over my hands, so properly not a good place for first date lol , I ordered coleslaw with my burger was average, nothing special, but their apple and ginger beer was really good. Overall my friend had a good time with her beef burger and the way she munched away is good enough for me to return and have a try myself :) The only thing was even though the staffs who worked there was pretty hot but they seem to be running around doing nothing instead of helping with your order, which my hungry tummy doesn’t agree with the time we have to wait for our order. Hopefully next time I get to eat sooner than later!!
Meat liquor : WELBECK STREET
Came across this restaurant by typing best buffalo wings in London online, since I have been craving for some good one for ages. It is at the back of Debehams on bond street, the outside of it looked like an industrial car park entry but once you walked in, it looked more like a night club than a restaurant, apart from the pink neon light from some funky logo theres pretty much no light, with loud music playing I was a bit concern of the food quality !
But straight away we were greeted by free cocktail vouchers by liking their page on Facebook :) it was a cocktail named “Donkey Punch’ it was really nice!
So the menu offered a great range of fried and burgers selection, the topping are all very American, like chillies cheese fried, hippie fried, red chilli burger, sound like something someone will order in an American movie, I once AGAIN go for chicken burger, but this place has a twist to it ! It is a Buffalo chicken burger, imagine that! I though I was in heaven when I saw it on the menu and my friend ordered a Dead Hippie burger, we also ordered one cheese fried, one chillies cheese fried and some buffalo wings. The food arrived the fried was massive shoulda order just one portion we were carb overload at the end of the meal ! My burger was amazing but way too many sauce on it, so was a little bit too heavy for my favour, but the sauce on the wings was gorgeous!! and those cheese fried with onions base was one of the best side I ever had !! At the end we really could not finish the fried and took it home ,no point leaving leftover right ?
So this is my burger journey in london so far, my next target is the famous Five Guys from American in Covernt Garden <3
As part of his series ‘Dirty Dirty Love’, Reuben Negrón created images of a married couple and their everyday routine in bed.
Negrón explains: ‘Sex is all too often exploited which distorts the reality and universal value of the act. Instead of raising questions about the moral application of sex in art I wanted to focus on the act itself – the choreography and elegance inherent in the simultaneous motion of two bodies.’
Walter Mitty: When are you going to take it?
Sean O’Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.
Walter Mitty: Stay in it?
Sean O’Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here.
