around this hour, in his part of the globe, i imagine my father is sipping high west double rye, neat, and furthering one of his many talents (he is already accomplished in the drink, i'm talking practicing scales and building computers). i would say my father knows something about everything there is in the world. and i would not be lying. some things a pinch, some things a metric ton, but some thing about every thing. so, to a very curious and learned man, i offer up the magical maps of eric fisher via his flickr photostream... he's cataloged the differences between cities round the world, including new york and los angeles.
a map of locals and tourists: new york vs la
red dots = pictures taken by tourists
blue dots = pictures taken by locals
yellow dots = pictures taken by others
a map of race and ethnicity: new york vs la
red dots = white peeps
blue dots = black peeps
green = asian peeps
orange = hispanic peeps
yellow = other peeps (possibly kalkatroonaans)
all photos by eric fisher, who has many more locales from around this big beautiful globe in his flickr sets, where you can scroll over the images and find landmarks. race and ethnicity here, locals and tourists here. go find your hometown! and happy birthday big daddy... can't wait to be a yellow dot with a blue camera in new york with you!
