Favicon Gallery

22 Feb

favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a website iconshortcut iconurl icon, or bookmark icon is a 16×16, 32×32 or 64×64 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage.

A web designer can create such an icon and install it into a website (or webpage) by several means, and most graphical web browsers will then make use of it. Browsers that provide favicon support typically display a page’s favicon in the browser’s address bar and next to the page’s name in a list of bookmarks.

I recently came across a post from Fineicons.com which showcases a collection Favicons they deemed ‘most remarkable’.

Here is a screenshot:

A look at New York City in the 1970′s.

Alot has changed in New York City. Once know for it’s working-girl laden Meatpacking District, rundown pockets of neighborhoods, and peep-show heaven 42nd Street, New York has transformed itself.  Gone is the seediness once depicted in Martin Scorsese’s film Taxi Driver.

A plethora of films used the streets of New City during the 70′s as their backdrop. Some include The Godfather (1972), Shaft (1971), Mean Streets (1973), Serpico (1973), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974), and who can forget Dog Day Afternoon (1975) with Al Pacino, who portrayed a bank robber whose quick heist turns into a hostage situation. That film was shot in Brooklyn, at the Chase Manhattan Bank, on the corner of East Third Street and Avenue P. Besides being rich in film and social history, it is also rich in photography opportunities. Here is look back on images from 1970′s New York City.
