Thanks to a new city law, all construction sites must now have a “viewing panel” that lets you peek in and see what’s going on. We explained the law on the Brian Lehrer Show blog, and asked you to snap a picture through that little diamond-shaped peephole. Now, here are our favorite of your photos.

Gotta say I like this.

Bluebonnets — on a street corner in central Houston — *not* in a spot where you’d expect to see Texas wildflowers growing. What a great sight! 
The street corner serves as a METRO bus stop.

Neon Museum, Las Vegas

instagram:

Ever wonder what happens to all those neon signs that line the Las Vegas Strip when they’re taken down? They end up at the Neon Museum! The Neon Museum is a non-profit in Las Vegas dedicating to preserving Las Vegas’s iconic art form, and it’s a must-visit spot for great Instagram photos!

Mother Photographs Her Flying Baby 

 “I never throw him, and I never move him into a place in the frame that he wasn’t in to begin with,” Hulin said. “I like Henry to fly the way he feels like it, I never pose him in a specific way. Sometimes he’s graceful and sometimes he’s a little hunchback. I think telling you more would ruin it.”

When Jonathan Harris (PopTech 2007) turned 30, he began a simple ritual of taking one photo a day and posting it to his website before going to sleep, along with a short story. He called this project, ‘Today’.

This is a short film about Jonathan’s project, made a few weeks after he stopped it, by his friend, Scott Thrift at 
m ss ng p eces.  

Watch Jonathan’s talk about some of his other web based stories here

Jonathan Harris gets it. I know this video is long, but watch it anyway. It is beautiful, and worth it.

Awesome story on Wired about a 360-degree panorama photograph that takes you inside Prague’s off-limits Baroque Library.

By the numbers:
868-year-old Strahov monastery library + 42,000 rare 18th century books + one fresco (45 feet above you, completed in 1794) + 2,947 photos + at least 111 hours’ worth of color correcting and digital stitching time = one stunning, 40-gigapixel, 360-degree image
On leaving his camera overnight in the hall, photographer Jeffrey Martin said: “That’s one advantage of shooting in an 18th-century library — my camera is the least valuable thing in the room.”
So cool.
