We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash? Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of food waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping and survive only on discarded food. What they find is truly shocking. – foodwastemovie dot com

The church organ at the Sixth Street Synagogue belonged to the St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, which was associated with the General Slocum disaster of 1904.

On June 15, 1904, the General Slocum caught fire and sank in the East River of New York City. At the time of the accident she was on a chartered run carrying members of St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church (German Americans from Little Germany, Manhattan) to a church picnic. An estimated 1,021 of the 1,342 people on board died. The General Slocum disaster was the New York area’s worst disaster in terms of loss of life until the September 11, 2001 attacks. – Wikipedia

Brick Lane, London with Banksy – Sandra Walker RI, watercolourist

© Sandra Walker

Sandra Walker RI (Member of The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour) is an American watercolourist living in the UK and is regarded one of the world’s finest photorealists. I am honored to have caught Sandra’s artistic eye and to have had several of my photographs reproduced by her. Above is a recent watercolor of a street artist mural on Brick Lane in East London. Sandra was also kind enough to include her working photographs used to reproduce this street scene.

According to a Wikipedia article on Brick Lane, a street in East London, England:

It runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city’s Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and is known to some as Banglatown. It is famous for its many curry houses.
