PopSpots

This is a really fascinating idea for a web site: Bob Egan, the man behind PopSpots, looks for the exact location where iconic album covers of the past were shot, and then recreates the original with the cover inserted in a contemporary shot. Although the focus is on New York, other locations are included as well. As you can expect, this is a time consuming affair, and there are currently "just" 13 albums posted, but it is fun to browse. The picture above is of course Steely Dan's Pretzel logic.
