Italian Coastal Architecture
Webshots is a good general source of inspiration anyway, but I saw this on the frontpage today
... would be a very good basis for map... sure ! And BTW, the photos on the websites are very good ..
please let those of us who actually have jobs know in advance when you've linked a girl with a fucking ball gag in her mouth in a thread about architectural reference thanks
Oh Come On...
Madison is a progressive town. I'm sure you have people in ball gags walking around the office. Even if they don't look like Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Roman Port City Of Ostia
These are not necessarily the best photos of it, but there's not bad for a start. Do some searches for "ostia" and you'll probably find more cool galleries.
I think thats Bettie Page
Lots of pictures of lots of places...

interesting images of strange environments and scenes. i particularly like the temple series (from which i also have two posters).
the only setback is that the site uses flash and opens in popups, which makes viewing the large versions of the images a pain.

The Clockwork Orange!
personal anecdote: my dad, trained civil engineer, worked on the modernising of the glasgow underground. That victoriana building about halfway down the page, the entrance to St. Enoch station, had to be jacked up in one piece - by 7mm iirc - so the tunnels below could be worked on.
My dad has dozens more photos of the project, but I shan't be asking him for more 'inspiration' :P
What a surreal reminder o_O
he he he ... They drowned some people in concrete ;P ..
Contemporary thai artist making his own bhuddist temple after his own design. Apparently there's another artist that's answering with a black temple in the same city but haven't seen any of that.
This Painter is very good
