Mother’s Finger

New cookies from Korea – I thought it was a bit too creepy for the front page…

Get that mother’s finger out of my school zone!

3-D Animated Views of Old Japan

I have seen a lot of the old 3-D (stereoview) photos of Japan taken by T. Enami (1859-1929) before on Flickr, but Pink Tentacle just posted a bunch of them that were made into animated GIF’s – really bringing the images to life!  The following are a sampling from the collection amassed and posted on Flickr by Okinawa Soba (who has an incredible collection).

You can follow the links under each animated GIF for background information.

[Meeting at gate]

[Buddhist ornament dealer]

[Clam diggers having lunch]

[Geisha in a tearoom]

Found by way of Pink Tentacle (click on link to see more photos).

Shiseido’s Elixir product page from 2004:

BoA is a J-Pop group from the Avex label:

Unfortunately these have all been corrected since, so it is good to archive here. Please let me know if you find any other ‘Lording’ sites.

No peeing here buddy…

This photo was taken at a highway rest stop in Japan. Even though the rest stops have plenty of toilets, I guess they still have a problem with guys pissing in the bushes…
