Being someone who travels a lot for work reasons, I am actually using my current vacations to enjoy the peacefulness of being home: reading my books, watching my DVDs, playing my video games....sleeping. Wow, I've been needing it fo a while now. The title of this image could've alson been "There's no place like home", but I preferred the other cliché...LOL.

This picture has been waiting for a really long time to be uploaded, and so I hope it finds its way into your hearts.

These are community houses built by the government for less privileged families here in Brazil.

My spring break was built around a lot of photography. Thurs-Sat I was in Lake Tahoe to hang w/ Flex and try my best to get a hold on Bonsai Rock. Let’s just say Bonsai Rock won again…the weather was so bad that I only made it down to actually photograph it once…and then I barely made it. I was ¾ of the way to the rock from South Shore to photograph sunrise when I realized I had left my camera in the cabin.

 

DOH!!!!

 

I hurried back…only to discover the door was locked.

 

I was almost positive that Murphy’s law was going to come into play and this sunrise was going to be spectacular…and I would have missed it entirely because I was a retard. I could’ve enjoyed it from the cabin porch, while I sucked on a icicle. I think I’d have just shoved an icicle in my heart if it had been epic.

 

Rather than mope it up…I beat on Flex’s window to make him let me in. If I was going down, I was at least going to be en-route to capture the sunrise. He woke up after a solid 5 minutes of banging….on came the lights. I hurried back to the front door to get my bag…only he never came.

 

Apparently, I just triggered his need to use the restroom…because the lights went out and 2-minutes later I was hurrying around the house to bang on the window again.

 

This time he woke up and I was let in to get my bag.

 

Thankfully, the sunrise was un-tacular…and the morning was nothing more than a bit of exercise and another notch on my list of failures at that location.

 

This Tuesday I left with my youngest son to the Alvord Desert. A remote area of Eastern Oregon. You pass nowhere on your way here. The plan was to arrive and then figure out everything else from there. Long rides with 6-yeasr olds are crazy. Not only are they hungry all the time and want snacks…but they play crazy car games. Games like “what if…”

 

“What if this car caught on fire….what if a shark was chasing you…what if your car blew up…what if we never made it to the Al-bor Dezer?”

 

When we arrived it was nearing sunset, and thankfully this go around there were clouds…and things looked promising. Due to the remoteness of this area, I was never really sure if I was in the correct area. I saw something that looked like a desert playa…but no access to it…which led me to believe, due to the numerous photos and videos I’ve watched of cars and motorcycles driving on it, I was not in the correct place. I drove on. Then I stopped seeing a playa…which led to thoughts of….oh man….what if we don’t make it to the “Al-bor Dezer?”

 

I called Oachs who was shopping…to have him do some map work. Thankfully, despite the remoteness…the Alvord has a tremendous cell signal…and I was able to finally figure out that I WAS in the right location…and the playa I saw, was indeed the one I wanted to be on. I just couldn’t find out how to get on to it.

 

I was really wanting to drive the Pirus at mach speed on the desert playa….and break the hybrid land speed record….but I never found a spot I thought I wouldn’t get stuck in….so I opted to park the ride on the side of the road and walk out on to the playa.

 

I decided to go photograph first, because the light was happening…and set up camp at a later point. A decision which I would regret….

 

This shot was from a very cool sunset in a very VERY good location. Aiden played in the mud and ran amuck while I photographed. I really enjoy photography most when I can enjoy it with my kids.

Part 2 in a couple days…I’m off to SF to teach another class with the Aperture Academy.

The Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Truro, Cornwall is an Anglican cathedral. It was built in the Gothic Revival architectural style fashionable during the period, and is one of only three cathedrals in the United Kingdom with three spires.

 

The See (or Diocese) of Truro was established in 1876 and the first bishop, Edward White Benson, was consecrated in 1877: this was the first cathedral to be built on a new site in England since Salisbury Cathedral in 1220.

 

Construction began in 1880 on the site of the 16th century parish church (St Mary the Virgin) to a design by the architect John Loughborough Pearson, a leading figure of the 19th century Gothic Revival. The design combines the Early English style with certain French characteristics, chiefly spires and rose windows. Truro's resemblance to Lincoln Cathedral is not coincidental: Pearson had been appointed as Lincoln's Cathedral architect and the first Bishop of Truro, Edward Benson, had previously been Canon Chancellor at Lincoln. The central tower and spire stands 250 feet tall, while the western towers reach to 200 feet.

 

The cathedral is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and as such has no Lady Chapel, which is quite unusual. Because the cathedral is situated in the heart of the city there was little room with houses and shops packed closely about on all sides. In order to accommodate the cathedral it was necessary to bend the building six feet northward.

 

Two foundation stones were laid in 1880 and the first section of the cathedral was consecrated in 1887. The central tower was completed by 1905 and the building was completed with the opening of the two western towers in 1910. Pearson died in 1897 and the work of his architectural practice was continued by his son, Frank. The Cathedral was the location for the first service of Nine Lessons and Carols, devised by Bishop Edward White Benson for Christmas Eve in 1880.

 

In 2002 the cathedral embarked on what was hoped to be a fifteen year project to restore the east end, the west front and the central tower and spire. Reliant on available funds, work progresses when possible. Currently the towers are under refurbishment under this plan.

The above image is dedicated to the memory of Kai, the wonderful caretaker of the building I live in as well as a really great guy. This past Wednesday morning, as he was taking care of the stairwell right in front of my door, he suddenly collapsed. A neighbor from the next-door building found him and tried to revive him while the neighbor's daughter called the paramedics.

 

When I opened my door, the emergency doctor and paramedics along with the firemen were all trying to revive him. I only became aware of everything when the emergency personnel started arriving as I was on the other side of my place as well as outside on my terrace.

 

As I often had some fascinating and lively conversations with Kai over the years as he actually happened to have learned photography back in the day when you still developed film and was an extremely talented nature photographer, I tried to fill the paramedics in on what I knew about his pre-existing health issues.

 

Two years ago, Kai had a very close call even though he was only in his mid to late 50's and the doctors told him he needed to stop smoking or else his heart would not make it. So, he switched to the e-cigarettes which happen to also have plenty of the most toxic chemicals in them and are completely unregulated in terms of their ingredients. But that is another story....

 

Anyway, the paramedic who was doing the heart massage went on to make some really bad joke about the fact that Kai missed vacuuming the spot where he had collapsed. I then went on telling the paramedics what a great guy he was and how helpful he was as I thought Kai needed to hear something nice while he was leaving this plane of existence and not something so hurtful and in bad taste. It was very harrowing to witness his last moments like this.

 

I was the only one at home in my building and as I work from home, the only one who really ever talked with Kai. Except for that day. I even found out that he had joined Flickr when it first started up! He would have made for an amazing Nat Geo photographer but he told me that he preferred not traveling and was not adventurous enough, so he opted for a financially more secure job.

 

But, he always kept up the photography and then switched to DSLR. He loved taking images of the wildlife, especially birds and was a huge owl fan.

 

Hence, I hope that he gets to come back as his favorite owl if reincarnation does exist. Alas, I have yet to see an owl in person so I could not dedicate an owl image in his memory. Kai did recommend that I check the ground instead of craning my neck to look up the tree trunks when I was walking around a wooded area in order to discover an owl.

 

So, I am dedicating this image of the adorable Goldie the Goldcrest to him, as we even talked about my charming encounter with her shortly after it happened back in February.

 

Would you not agree that this sweetie pie looks like she has the cutest little upturned nose along with the longest eyelashes ever and is batting them at the camera in this pose?! I am pretty sure that she could even melt a heart of stone!

 

Now for the story behind yet another image from the series I took of her back in the middle of February ;-)

 

On my way to my weekly physical therapy session, I always walk by the garden of the neighbor where the two diabolical cats technically live when they are not wreaking havoc in the communal gardens surrounding my place.

 

Suddenly, I heard a delicate peep right before me and a super adorable Goldcrest popped out to introduce herself properly. I could not believe my eyes and ears. She then spent a good 30 minutes weaving around and in front of me on the fence at eye level with only a few inches between us. She even let me follow her around while zooming in and out!

 

Well, she was still there when I left her (and my heart) as I was running a good 20 minutes late for my much needed PT session after snapping more than 600 images of her. I usually allow an extra 10 minutes for any photo op on my way to PT. So far, it has always been enough time as I mostly do wannabe macro shots of flowers or leaves. Clearly, this time it was not.

 

I rather hoped she might still be there upon my return. Instead, my BFF Blackbird Fleur was hanging out in that hedge while taking a break from all the telenovela antics of the Blackbirds around my enchanted terrace. Of course, I had to tell Fleur all about my time with the adorable newbie. Dear Fleur did not know what to make of my tale of love at first click ;-)

 

Rewind to the actual Goldcrest meet cute. The tiny charmer was busy polishing off tiny insects from the dead leaves of the ivy hedge. But, she also kept taking little breaks to pose for me and look at me with the sweetest gaze ever. Needless, to say, she promptly absconded with my heart.

 

I named the little angel Goldie, not to be confused with the juvenile Blue Tit bird from this past summer whom I have not seen since. This Goldie is clearly not only a Buddha Bird, but a true Buddha Angel.

 

So, how did I know right off the bat that Goldie was a she?! Well, I just knew. Goldie kept looking at me with the special smaller songbird bird BFF look with which my darling resident Dunnock Hedy and her daughter Brownie will look at me and in the same manner that my adorable visiting Robin Angel did along with the visiting one Elfi from this past late winter.

 

Of course, I read all I could about Goldcrests once I got home and was able to confirm Goldie is a she as she does not have any extra orange feathers on her crest like the guys do.

 

Now back to my magical encounter with Goldie. She turned into the ultimate little supermodel for me, but my camera refused to focus on her most of the time as I was simply too close and she is just too fluffy.

 

This tiny ball of fluff is the smallest bird in Europe, measuring only 9 cm. Goldie belongs to the passerine group of small birds named the Kinglets and legend has it that they were considered the king of the birds.

 

In my nearly 3 years of living in my current neighborhood, I have only seen one Goldcrest around here and this happened for the first time during the past fall. I believe Goldie is the same cutie as she has also turned up in the conifer trees around my terrace.

 

I was about to upload a still from a little clip I made of her a while back. The still is pretty sharp, but the light was really dismal. At the time, she was checking me out via the juniper tree to the right of my terrace and only a couple of meters away from me. I kept inwardly praying and hoping that she might turn up again with better light.

 

Never in a million years would I have imagined such a special and super close encounter as happened the middle of February. Definitely my little bird miracle of the year ;-) My Christmas wish come true! As you can all imagine, I am still doing my happy dance ;-)

 

A Goldcrest appears in the background of my upcoming picture book series, "Flaushi the Buddha Jay." The series is based on my very special and completely wild Eurasian jay Flaushi and all of his friends on and around my enchanted terrace. Though I think I might have to give Goldie her very own picture book ;-)

Ive had sometime off work this week. I have wanted to shoot in this Cathedral for some time so i made time to have a few hours in here. Some old darlin came over to me as i was laying on the floor trying to line this up, she thought id fainted. Bless her kind heart for being caring.

What an amazing historic building to browse at your leisure for free or It's £3 to take pictures in here and you can use tripods! I would highly recommend this place as it's so peaceful, the staff here are so helpful and take time to explain any of its history.

Valentine's Day Trivia

 

• February 14th was the date of the Roman festival of Lupercalia - where young men held a lottery to decide which girl would be theirs.

 

• During Medieval times, girls ate unusual foods on St. Valentine's Day to have a dream of their future husband.

 

• In the middle Ages, people believed that the first unmarried person of the opposite sex you met on the morning of St. Valentine's Day would become your spouse.

 

• In the middle of the 17th century even married people took a Valentine - not always their legal other half!

 

• Alexander Graham Bell applied for his patent on the telephone, on the Valentine's Day, 1876.

 

• In Wales, love spoons of wood were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes formed the favorite theme of decorations on the spoons, which together symbolized- "You unlock my heart!"

 

• It wasn't until 1537 that St. Valentine's Day was declared an official holiday. England's King Henry VIII declared February 14th a holiday in 1537 for the first time.

 

• On February 14, 1779, the natives of Hawaii murdered Captain James Cook the great English explorer and navigator.

 

• Some people believed that if a woman saw a robin-flying overhead on Valentine's Day, it meant she would marry a sailor and if she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a very rich person.

 

• The Taj Mahal at Agra, India is perhaps the most splendid gift of love. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beautiful wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Work on the Taj began in 1634 and continued for almost 22 years. It took the labor of 20,000 workers from all over India and Central Asia.

 

• In England, the Romans, who had taken over the country, had introduced a pagan fertility festival held every February 14. After the Romans left England, Pope Gelsius, who established St. Valentine's Day as a celebration of love in 496 A.D abolished the pagan ritual.

 

Our task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find

all the barriers within ourselves that we have built against it.*

University Of Bristol, Life Sciences Building.

 

Sir David Attenborough opened the Sheppard Robson – designed, £56.5 million, Life Sciences building at Bristol University.

 

The architectural ambition of the project was to create a building that respects the neighbouring listed buildings and surrounding conservation area whilst also adding a confident piece of contemporary design to Bristol.

 

It is the University’s biggest construction project to-date and is arranged in two parallel wings, with the east-facing element housing the office accommodation and responding to the proportion and massing of the adjacent listed buildings. Distinctly different in form, the west-facing wing is designed as an undulating aluminium wall, signifying the cutting-edge laboratory space housed in that part of the building. The two elements of the building are linked by a full height atrium space, which forms the social heart of the building.

How do you numb your skin

After the warmest touch

How do you slow your blood

After the body rush

How do you free your soul

After you’ve found a friend

How do you teach your heart

It’s a crime to fall in love again

Father to son, husband to wife

Brother to brother, black man to white

Living together, falling apart

Looking for the common ground in every human heart

It all comes down to the two of us

Yeah this is where we start

 

We are building the bridge

One small stone at a time

With a lot of love

And some help from above

From your heart to mine

 

Theres a land of justice, cities filled with pride

A mountain of hope, just on the other side

Across a river of indifference, and a valley of despair

Theres a tower of courage, piercing through the air

I have a dream for our children, I want to take them there

 

And we are building the bridge

One small stone at a time

With a lot of love

And some help from above

From your heart to mine

 

As we seek out understanding

As we learn to forgive

When we open up our minds

When our words are true and kind

We are building the bridge

Building the Bridge

Sunset behind the Ponte Vecchio, in the heart of Florence. "The bridge spans the River Arno at its narrowest point where it is believed that a bridge was first built in Roman times, when the via Cassia crossed the river at this point. The Roman piers were of stone, the superstructure of wood. The bridge first appears in a document of 996. After being destroyed by a flood in 1117 it was reconstructed in stone but swept away again in 1333 save two of its central piers, as noted by Giovanni Villani in his Nuova Cronica. It was rebuilt in 1345. Giorgio Vasari recorded the traditional view of his day that attributed its design to Taddeo Gaddi — besides Giotto one of the few artistic names of the trecento still recalled two hundred years later. Modern historians present Neri di Fioravanti as a possible candidate. Sheltered in a little loggia at the central opening of the bridge is a weathered dedication stone, which once read Nel trentatrè dopo il mille-trecento, il ponte cadde, per diluvio dell' acque: poi dieci anni, come al Comun piacque, rifatto fu con questo adornamento. The Torre dei Mannelli was built at the southeast corner of the bridge to defend it.

 

The bridge consists of three segmental arches: the main arch has a span of 30 meters (98 feet) the two side arches each span 27 meters (89 feet). The rise of the arches is between 3.5 and 4.4 meters (11½ to 14½ feet), and the span-to-rise ratio 5:1. It has always hosted shops and merchants who displayed their goods on tables before their premises, after authorization of the Bargello (a sort of a lord mayor, a magistrate and a police authority). The back shops (retrobotteghe) that may be seen from upriver, were added in the seventeenth century. It is said that the economic concept of bankruptcy originated here: when a money-changer could not pay his debts, the table on which he sold his wares (the "banco") was physically broken ("rotto") by soldiers, and this practice was called "bancorotto" (broken table; possibly it can come from "banca rotta" which means "broken bank"). Not having a table anymore, the merchant was not able to sell anything." (Wikipedia)

 

Thanks very much for stopping by, and for all the continued kind comments and favorites. They are greatly appreciated.

deep in the woods, there is a dark place, a dark, dark place where a lonely man has built layer upon layer upon layer, protecting his heart, each layer sinking his heart further and further into the darkness and further and further from the light.

Other important facts and infos about the Metropolitan building in Warsaw include:

  

- One of the city's famous buildings.

 

- Metropolitan is among the winners of the prestigious architectural RIBA Worldwide Award in 2004.

 

- Metropolitan was awarded a MIPIM Award on March 11, 2004, the most prestigious distinction in the property world, in a business center's category.

 

- The construction of a modern office building in such a culturally-sensitive location led to a heated debate among Polish architects.

 

- The 50-meter diameter courtyard in the heart of the building and three passages allow pedestrian shortcuts across the site, resulting in an open public area.

 

- This resulted in rounded corners and vertical granite fins which, when viewed from the side give the façade solidity but when viewed from the front seem to disappear. Similar fins, but made of glass were installed in Crown Point. [ The Crown Point is another famous building in Warsaw and is constructed mainly in glass / limestone / concrete - but by architect Ludwik Konior & Montois Partners Architects ]

 

- Due to its sensitive location the project was discussed with conservators of historic monuments, which led to design changes that complimented the neighboring buildings and sites.

 

- The occupied square formerly belonged to the Saxon Axis, the grandest baroque urban scheme in Warsaw.

 

- Built in close proximity to historically and culturally significant sites: the Unknown Soldier's Tomb, the Zacheta State Art Gallery, the Grand Theater and the Saxon Garden.

Borders the north side of Pilsudski Square, one of the most historically-important in Warsaw.

Since October 2003, Gran Meliá Fénix has been part of the most prestigious hotel association in the world, The Leading Hotels of The World

 

=

 

The 5 stars were awarded in 2004

 

=

 

Architectural design: Fernando Cánovas del Castillo (Opened: September 1953)

 

=

 

The Gran Meliá Fénix is elegant and classical yet also truly modern. The emblematic history of the hotel is also marked by the people who chose its elegant facilities for their stay in Madrid.

 

=

 

Since it opened in 1953, this exclusive hotel has been chosen by prestigious guests from all walks of life: culture, politics, music, fashion, cinema and sport. Known as the “the excellence of Madrid”, “the hotel of the nobility” and “the Beatles’ hotel”, the Gran Meliá Fénix is an oasis of tranquillity right in the heart of the Spanish capital (Plaza Colón).

 

=

 

The select and discreet atmosphere, elegant lounges and richly decorated and contrasting rooms, blending traditional luxury with a surprising modern flair, have been the perfect setting for famous celebrities such as Rita Hayworth, Gloria Swanson, Cary Grant and Charles Bronson, amongst many, many others.

 

=

 

A major event for the city and the hotel was the historic visit to Spain by The Beatles on 1 July, 1965. The Fab Four from Liverpool gave a crowded press conference at the Gran Meliá Fénix before their only concert in Madrid, and then stayed in four of its luxury suites.

 

=

 

Since then, the Gran Meliá Fénix has become a landmark in the Spanish capital, and a meeting point at the very highest level. Under its spectacular modernist dome there have been numerous meetings between important politicians, prominent Spanish and international businessmen and women, and members of the world’s royal families.

 

=

 

A thorough renovation has now made this charismatic hotel the hotel chosen by the stars of the 21st century, while retaining all of the essential charm of its origins that has made it a “listed building” to protect the city heritage.

 

=

  

Select visitors such as Queen Noor of Jordan, Prince Felipe and Princess Elena de Borbón, Bill Clinton, Antonia Banderas, Chayanne, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Cardinale, Rafael Nadal and David Beckham have all enjoyed the Gran Meliá experience.

Vaclav Havel Square (National Theatre piazzetta)

 

"A little square between the old and new buildings of the National Theatre in Prague was built after the design of Czech architect Karel Prager. Since 4th October 2016 it bears the name of the first Czech president, Václav Havel. At the square, a big granite heart by sculptor Kurt Gebauer is installed for people to write messages inside this sculpture."

Text: Prague.eu

 

Czechs remember late president Vaclav Havel

"(...) Havel was a dissident playwright who led the 1989 Velvet Revolution that toppled four decades of communist rule in what was then Czechoslovakia before becoming the Czech Republic’s first president. He died on Dec. 18, 2011, at age 75. (...)"

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica and often simply Sacré-Cœur (French: Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, pronounced [sakʁe kœʁ]), is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, France. A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1871 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order, publicly dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was an increasingly popular vision of a loving and sympathetic Christ.

The Sacré-Cœur Basilica was designed by Paul Abadie. Construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919.

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris

 

Sacré-Cœur, Paris

 

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica and often simply Sacré-Cœur, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, France.

 

In 1870, war broke out between France and Germany.

The Council that was being held in the Vatican at the time was suspended and the Pope, no longer under the protection of French troops, considered himself a prisoner within the Vatican.

 

France was facing defeat and partially occupied by German troops. The initiative of Alexandre Legentil and Hubert Rohault de Fleury was a spiritual one. They vowed to build a church dedicated to the Sacred Heart “as reparation” (i.e. as penance for infidelity and sin) for they held that the misfortunes of France had spiritual rather than political causes.

 

At the end of 1872 Cardinal Guibert, Archbishop of Paris, approved the vow and chose Montmartre.

 

At the end of 1873 he got the French Parliament to pass a law declaring that the Basilica was in the public interest, thereby making the land available for the construction of a church.

At the time the construction of a Basilica dedicated to the Sacred Heart contrasted with a series of Basilicas dedicated to the Virgin Mary during the same period in Lourdes, Notre-Dame de Fourvière in Lyon and Notre-Dame de la Garde in Marseilles.

 

The work was funded from donations - in many cases modest - collected throughout France, the names of the donors being carved in the stone.

Built in 1133, Missenden Abbey remained a religious house for nearly 400 years. In 1536 the Abbey and its grounds were sold to new owners. Missenden Abbey then became a country mansion residence for a succession of families until 1946, when it was sold to Buckinghamshire County Council for use as an adult learning facility.

The Shot

 

Standard 3 exposure shot (+2..0..-2 EV) with tripod using Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm lens

 

Photomatix

 

- Tonemapped generated HDR using detail enhancer option

 

Photoshop

 

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'curves' to increase the contrast

- Added 1 layer mask effect of 'saturation' (yellows) to slightly decrease the tone of the house

- Added 1 layer mask effects of 'saturation' (blues) to slightly adjust the lightness of the sky

- Applied digital blending of another tonemapped hdr to correct the ghost artifacts from the trees

- Used 'unsharp mask' (as always) on the background layer

Blondie - Heart of Glass

In the heart of Tuscany, in the countryside of the Val d'Orcia, close to Pienza stands Agriturismo Podere Terrapille. And who have seen the movie Gladiator with Russel Crowe will recognize the scene when Maximus Decimus Meridius walks in the fields towards the villa. Because of that movie this location became pretty popular, not at least by a small army of photographers who gather around the winding lawn of cypress trees every day.

I was not that happy with the images from below, from sunset and sunrise. So i decided to shoot sunset from Pienza with the 300mm and although i had a very long wait till the last light was spreading out over the fields, the colourful result was worth waiting for.

Enjoy...

In a different kind of mood working with images of brick and concrete layered with coins and a wavy building tile up from Seoul. Sometimes images come in a batch and this is no exception except I'm still sorting this one out. :) This image has been a bit of a struggle for me and I'm still apprehensive about it, funny how I get that way with some of these but I've "spent" a bit of time with it and I'm calling it done for now. I posted a lighter version and have replaced it with this one that I've darkened a bit and changed slightly to bring up the coins (South Korean Wons).

Ghent is full of so many wonderful buildings but for me the highlight of the city was the extraordinary Belltower

 

The 91-metre-tall belfry of Ghent is one of three medieval towers that overlook the old city centre Its height makes it the tallest belfry in Belgium. Construction of the tower began in 1313 after a design by master mason Jan van Haelst. His plans are still preserved in the Ghent City Museum. After continuing intermittently through wars, plagues and political turmoil, the work reached completion in 1380. It was near the end of this period that the gilded dragon, brought from Bruges, assumed its place atop the tower. The uppermost parts of the building have been rebuilt several times, in part to accommodate the growing number of bells.

Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera, is a building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built during the years 1905–1910, being considered officially completed in 1912. It is located at 92, Passeig de Gràcia in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

 

It was a controversial design at the time for the bold forms of the undulating stone facade and wrought iron decoration of the balconies and windows, designed largely by Josep Maria Jujol, who also created some of the plaster ceilings.

 

Architecturally it is considered an innovative work for its steel structure and curtain walls – the façade is self-supporting. Other innovative elements were the construction of underground car parking and separate lifts and stairs for the owners and their servants.

 

In 1984, it was declared World Heritage by UNESCO. The building is made open to the public by the CatalunyaCaixa Foundation, which manages the various exhibitions and activities and visits to the interior and roof

 

Vital statistics about the Metropolitan building in Warsaw include:

   

Name: Metropolitan [ Office building ]

 

Address: Plac Pilsudskiego 1, 2, 3, Warsaw, Poland

   

Floors / above ground: 7

 

Construction type: Low-rise building

 

Current status: Completed

  

Facade material: Granite

 

Facade system: Curtain wall

 

Architectural style: Modernism

  

Main usage: Commercial offices

 

Side usages: Shops, Restaurants

  

Other important facts and infos about the Metropolitan building in Warsaw include:

  

- One of the city's famous buildings.

 

- Metropolitan is among the winners of the prestigious architectural RIBA Worldwide Award in 2004.

 

- Metropolitan was awarded a MIPIM Award on March 11, 2004, the most prestigious distinction in the property world, in a business center's category.

 

- The construction of a modern office building in such a culturally-sensitive location led to a heated debate among Polish architects.

 

- The 50-meter diameter courtyard in the heart of the building and three passages allow pedestrian shortcuts across the site, resulting in an open public area.

 

- This resulted in rounded corners and vertical granite fins which, when viewed from the side give the façade solidity but when viewed from the front seem to disappear. Similar fins, but made of glass were installed in Crown Point. [ The Crown Point is another famous building in Warsaw and is constructed mainly in glass / limestone / concrete - but by architect Ludwik Konior & Montois Partners Architects ]

 

- Due to its sensitive location the project was discussed with conservators of historic monuments, which led to design changes that complimented the neighboring buildings and sites.

 

- The occupied square formerly belonged to the Saxon Axis, the grandest baroque urban scheme in Warsaw.

 

- Built in close proximity to historically and culturally significant sites: the Unknown Soldier's Tomb, the Zacheta State Art Gallery, the Grand Theater and the Saxon Garden.

Borders the north side of Pilsudski Square, one of the most historically-important in Warsaw.

 

- The Metropolitan is comprised of three separate, but linked buildings.

  

Architect: Foster + Partners [ Lord - Norman - Foster ]

 

Opening: 2003

 

About the architect: Norman Robert Foster, Baron Foster of Thames Bank, OM (born 1 June 1935) is a British architect whose company maintains an international design practice. He is Britain's most prolific builder of landmark office buildings. In 2009 Foster was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award in the Arts category.

Last October we went to a business mixer in San Francisco. After the event I dragged my two friends to a mini-photo shoot at the Transamerica building, an iconic pyramid skyscraper that is supposedly earthquake-proof. This is the view from a side alley.

 

Does anybody recognize the title?

 

I processed an enhanced HDR photo from two RAW exposures.

The building was the first major building on the Wiener Ringstraße, at the heart of Old Vienna. This would probably be the most visited area of Vienna, where all tourist converge to walk around, enjoy the coffee and eat some sacher torte or even do some shopping. That time, La Traviata was showing, I was so tempted to go and watch! maybe another time....

Recently I went to the city of San Francisco to give a photo class. We walked along Embarcadero to learn various composition techniques. Here behind the Ferry Building I captured the Ferry Terminal through a puddle of water. I love reflection symmetry.

 

I processed a balanced HDR photo from a RAW exposure, carefully adjusted the curves, and added a warmwood filter to give the scene a cyan-greenish look.
