Underwater Sculptures

Jason de Caires places his sculptures underwater, letting natural organic processes (coral growth etc) become part of the artistic process. Fascinating.

London shopfronts. Not sure why, but I love storefronts. I could look at these all day.

Art of the Title is a website devoted to the opening title sequences from films and TV programs. I've always been a big fan of the title sequence, which often ends up being better than the movie itself.

And yes, the beautifully conceived and executed one from Se7en is included.
