Leaning Towers



If you like traveling, it’s impossible not to know the wonderful Tower of Pisa (La Torre di Pisa), the campanile belonging to the Cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, also known as The Leaning Tower.

Dating back  to 1173 and even intially meant to be a perfectly vertical structure, the Tower of Pisa is today one curious attraction due to its high leaning at about 3.99 degrees. How this happened? As Wikipedia says: “The tower began to sink after construction had progressed to the third floor in 1178. This was due to a mere three-meter foundation, set in weak, unstable subsoil, a design that was flawed from the beginning.”  Now, the Tower of Pisa is a beautiful landmark in a continuous fight with its harsh environmental conditions. If you’re interested in finding more about it, I would recommend: A Brief History of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The well known Italian tower, although one controversial building, as you’ll see, it’s not the only one of such kind… some other towers around the world stand almost like ready to fall – some intended to be like that, some not.

A long time ago, I was adding some pictures of amazing water sculptures: splashes, colors, shadows…

But never wondered what happens when you drop everyday objects into fizzy water… Rings, watches, dvds and bubbles… As Carl calls them on Flickr his pictures are just the wonderful expression of fun with fizzy water and a macro lens. 😉

Maybe you have heard about him… or maybe not. Liu Bolin, an inpirational and fascinating artist. Some artists paint flowers, others paint abstract figures, he paints himself. But in such way he becomes one with the world and objects around him. He blends with the environment and gives birth to amazing illusions.

Whether it’s a graffiti or a phone booth he’s there, WELL HIDDEN 😉

Mary Poppins Lost Her Umbrella

A few days ago, when I was going home, I saw a big black umbrella in the middle of the street. It was sitting there all alone, open, and cars were passing by… The first thing that passed through my mind was “Oh, my God!! Mary Poppins lost her umbrella…”
