My name is Richard. I’m a designer living in Melbourne, Australia. I make interactive things. Occasionally I’ll make things just to look at and I’ll put them up here.

Some very detailed street art taken on a sunny day in Detroit.
Some photos from the abandoned Packard Automotive plant on the East side of Detroit.
A final set of photos from the city of Detroit. Taken around Corktown and in the city centre.
Detroit is known now as the biggest city on the ‘rust belt’ – cities where manufacturing recessions have devastated the local economy.
Some images from the start of a chilly spring in Chicago.
Thankfully not an aquarium in a shed but just an aquarium named after a guy called Shedd.
Apparently way back in the 1830s about 20 per cent of Chicago’s population were Irish.
Some images of the city of Chicago after sundown.
Some photos of the Boeing production plant in Everett WA.

Some shots in the dark taken in Seattle back in March.
Some images from a few rainy days in Seattle.
More photos from the 1940s courtesy of the archives on Shorpy.com.

After a frigid night in Shanghai we watched the city wake up.
I’d like to say there was a sound artistic reason for documenting the one of the busiest shopping districts in the world while it was dark and empty.
