Here, in Venice, the “Devil” is (definitely) in the detail. The new metal door recently installed in the much older building, though a little out of place, appears perfectly functional and looks like it is good operating condition.
What needs to be pointed out here is that Venice, Italy is a city, situated just a few feet above sea level and so those cracks in the wall may be caused by the overwhelming presence of sea water in the immediate vicinity.
Furthermore, Venice may also be a bellwether locale, for the distinct possibility that our sea levels are rising and this phenomena may be causing and will cause problems along some coastlines in the near future.
The older traditional architecture of Minneapolis, MN is overwhelmed and overshadowed by a new modern high rise. The old seems to be always giving way to the new. There will be times that this does not seem like a good thing.
Here’s an enhanced scene from the Old West (Billings to be exact) that maybe goes to prove the old adage, “opposites attract”.
Have a happy Fourth of July and enjoy some outside activities like barbecuing or watching a fireworks display.
A Curved Phenomena
Here we have a straight telephone pole that has a distinctively curved shadow. There are two possible explanations for the curved shape of the shadow in this photo. One is that the building is moving at a very high rate of speed and thus the curved shadow. The other possibility is the surface of the building is not square, but rounded instead. What is your opinion?
Let’s face it, faces are everywhere. Some are alive, others are not. This face was created by three pipes in a brick wall and it is definitely not alive. Still, if you look at it in just the right manner, this image does come alive (sort of). Keep in mind that if this picture was framed differently, it might not look like a face at all.
