A Bangkok Coffee Shop for Design Lovers

The last few years have been all about drinking coffee in inspiring surroundings, and that’s exactly what Kaizen - a beautifully designed cafe in Bangkok’s hipster-loving Ekamai - stands for.

Housed in a sleek glass-walled structure, the double-height space is modern but welcoming, with neat light oak furnishings and smart lighting throughout. While the neutral color palette sets a calm tone, an offbeat mix of textures adds the right urban attitude to the ensemble. Envisioned by local design studio space+craft, the interior is a rhapsody of warm wood, cool metal, rough brick, and just a little bit of gloss.

Cool aesthetics aside, their coffee is a real highlight, with intriguing specialty blends and single-origin roasts for every taste. The coffee shop also serves a variety of healthy meals, from vibrant acai bowls to freshly made egg sandwiches.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
