Cass Technical High School: Now and Then A 1988 basketball game superimposed over the present-day condition of the old gymnasium. Second floor hallway. The library, from a picture in an early 90's yearbook. A Canopy of Colorful Umbrellas Spotted in Portugal This beautiful installation of umbrellas was recently spotted in Águeda, Portugal by photographer Patrícia Almeida.

It reminds be of Garth Britzman’s bottle carport. (via my modern met)
A Tribute To Clients From Hell I have worked with clients as a freelancer for years now, and like most of you, I have met many a client from hell. We have all had bad clients. Some are worse than others but we can all relate to the stories we hear because we know dat feel! Today we have some of the funniest, and most unfortunate examples of this client abuse that the freelancers of the world deal with on a daily basis. Whether you are a freelancer or not, you can definitely laugh (or cry) along with us as we go through these hilarious posters, tweets, and videos from all over the web. We have some hilarious excerpts from “Clients from Hell”, some fantastic artworks assembled by Mark Shanley and Paddy Treacy over at Sharp Suits, and much much more – so kick back and relax and have some laughs.
