 第二次世界大戦前の1940年前後、アメリカでは女性図書館員たちが馬に書籍を積み、その本を読みたい人の元へ運んでいたという。

 彼女たちは"ブック・ウーマン"として知られていた。

 馬に鞍をつけ、たいていは夜明けに出発して、雪の積もった丘の中腹やぬかるんだ小川を延々と行く。その目的はただひとつ。ケンタッキー州の人里離れた山岳集落に本を届けるためである。

The Finalists For The 2017 Art Of Building Photography Awards

If you have a good eye for a photograph and are passionate about the built environment then take part in this year’s Art of Building competition. It is free to enter and your photograph could inspire thousands of people. Previous winners have been featured on the BBC website, throughout the UK national press and in international titles across the globe.

The overall Art of Building winner is chosen by both experts and the public. It is a competition that celebrates buildings and the relationship people have with the built environment. Selected photographs feature in real public installations as the competition transforms construction hoarding into gallery spaces.


“Bicycle Rider” by Hans Wichmann; Avilés, Spain. “The photo shows the Oscar Niemeyer International Cultural Centre in Avilés, northern Spain. It is a successful integration of modern buildings in an old industrial site. A place for large and small people”. (Photo by Hans Wichmann/Art of Building Photography Awards 2017)

“Inception” by Hanqing Qu; Kuala Lumpur. “This picture was taken at Malaysia’s National Mosque. When the sunlight enters this building, light and shade meet each other in a dreamlike scene. It reminds me of the movie Inception”. (Photo by Hanqing Qu/Art of Building Photography Awards 2017)


“The Showstopper” by Linda van Slobbe; Bar-du-Lac, France. “This historic theatre is built in a typical oval shape which has the stage at one end and multiple floors and balconies all around. This one has beautiful decorations”. (Photo by Linda van Slobbe/Art of Building Photography Awards 2017)

“Manmade Cave” by Gautam Kamat Bambolkar; New York, USA. “Rugged textured cable pipes ran over my head at a train station in New York, creating a trance-like pattern.

あわてんぼうのサンタクロースすぎた。通報されがちなパンツ一丁サンタの全身スーツがナウオンセール!

sleezy1


 クリスマスと言えばサンタ。サンタといえばクリスマス。日本ではそこにケンタも加わり、サンタケンタなクリスマス。

 町ではサンタの赤いコスチュームを着た人がボチボチ出始めるころだろう。ピザ屋の配達員さんもクリスマスにはサンタ仕様だ。

 ぼっち、ぼっちじゃないかかわりなく外からのサンタ攻撃を避けることはできない。ならばあえて受けてたとうではないか。自らがサンタクロースになって。

 だが普通のサンタじゃ人が集まってきてしまうだろ?人を蹴散らしたいのならこっちのコスチュームの方がおすすめだ。ただし通報されがちなのでこれでの外出は自己責任が伴うだろう。
