Granada Night. Love.
Rio has a unique and always recognizable landscape. The city is just magnificent from a bird’s-eye view. I made some interesting finds while I was browsing Copacabana, Leblon and Ipanema, visiting the local samba and jazz clubs, and local markets. I had the opportunity to visit different parts of the city, and even went for a football( soccer) game of two local club teams: that was a great experience.
Now, it’s just impossible to believe that the Eiffel Tower was meant to be a temporary structure. Being an iconic architectural site in France, the Eiffel Tower is one of the greatest examples of engineering and design success. Just look at all those aesthetically pleasing lines and arches. I love the appearance of the tower in whole, but can admire the detailing as well. All those supporting structures were so beautifully thought through. All those long and short beams create incredible rhythms that I just hear music as I look into the wonderful construction.
I’ve been in Vatican two times. These pictures were taken a few years ago. I liked that visit more than first for a simple reason: fewer people! It was raining all day long, at times cats and dogs, so it eliminated a big percent of the wanderers from Saint Peter’s Square and from the Vatican museums as well. I was soaking wet constantly covering my camera and lenses from getting extra moisture on them, sometimes not able to take any pictures, but I couldn’t close my eyes on the beauty and richness around me.
