Out and About: Steve in Lisbon (2 of 2)

More observations from last week’s trip to Lisbon. See part 1 here

Street art.

Body-enhancing undergarments.


Eat box? Yum!

Y’arr! Pirate Bar! That’s some great neon. Perfect place for Drink Like A Pirate Day.

Scented dolls? They look pretty intense. Perhaps they inch forward menacingly as you pass by their window.

The design museum was redoing its facade with sticky notes. We watched their progress over several days.

This is the take-a-number device for a retail queue. Far more advanced than the familiar North American paper ticket dispenser. And also unrecognizable if you don’t read Portuguese and don’t know to look for this.

Detail of a building exterior. Tiled buildings are ubiquitous, with many different beautiful tile designs of various vintages.

Observing Dublin (part 1 of 2)

Last week I was in Dublin for the IxDA Student Design Challenge (more on that coming soon). I had a chance to stroll about (in the cold!) and get some pictures, here are a few favorites, with part 2 coming tomorrow.

You can’t understate the prominence (relevance?) of Guinness

The Museum of Natural History. A big, big room crammed with more dead stuffed animals than you possibly imagine.

Rolling advertisements.

Occupy and social media.

Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott.

Aspiration meets reality.

Local hero Colm Meaney.

Why, indeed?

The Liffey at night.

Samuel Beckett Bridge.

Services you didn’t know you needed.
