Memorial Day, Dukemajian Park

I was trying to explain to someone recently why simplified graphic iconography is SO important to good design and this is a good example. The scene in front of me was literally this (A)
But a better design is this (B)
And you can't see that unless you boil it down to the essential parts. All the "details" get in the way and must be striped off to refine the design cause without design we're just human xerox machines. Copying what's in front of us with no thought. Even Ansel Adams knew that you MAKE a photograph not TAKE a photograph.

Hi Robh. Love the piece but I'm not sure you couldn't have made the other design work just as well. Style trumps design. You have great style.

Modern replicators use a two-axis guide system similar to those found in CNC or computer numeric-controlled applications. The milling head can come from a variety of sources. It is essentially a drill or a rotary tool with a milling bit capable of cutting sideways, not just plunging into material.

Có về việt nam thì mới biết nổi nhớ quê hương, được ăn những món mình thích và trải nghiệm cảm giác được tự tay vào bếp làm những món ăn ngon của xứ sở mình. Qua những ngày ở đây tôi được học cách nấu bún bò huế ngon ngoài ra còn được học nấu ăn ở đâu miễn phí những món ăn ngon lạ mà từ trước đến nay chưa được ăn như là: cách làm món bánh tráng trộn ngon một món ăn rất dể ăn, cách làm cũng không quá khó, ngoài ra còn có những món tây âu như là món cách làm gà rán ngon đi xa hơn một chút về miền Bắc lại được ăn và biết được vịt om sấu và cách nấu ra sao. Cũng là từ vịt nhưng một món khác đặt trưng cho vùng Nam bộ là cách nấu vịt nấu chao nếu những ai không ăn được thịt chó nhưng vẫn muốn thử cái vị của món ấy thì có món được nấu từ thịt heo đó là cách nấu món giò heo giả cầy lạ miệng với cách nấu lạ độc http://nhadep.com và mẫu thi công nội thất đẹp
