Grand… I usually tend to look for amazing little things that makes life wonderful and interesting. I’m not much into Grandeur…
Anyway not as a photographer but as a tourist i witnessed many things that can receive this title. Let’s see:
1: Pyramid of the sun seen from the pyramid of the moon in TEOTIHUACAN, close to Mexico city…I guess that fits the description.
2: A giant ship leaving the port of Miami. Notice it’s higher than the buildings. There, people on the porch can witness a bigger building moving through the water toward the sea.
3: The Rockefeller center christmas tree being assembled.
4: Amazing sand sculpture in Berlin, Germany….
5: The “Colón” Opera House in Buenos Aires…said to be one of the biggest of the world.
6: and i finish it with a bit of my country’s carnival. The biggest popular celebration of the world. This is a parade in my city. They happen in most big cities for 2 days…In these 2 days, 20 samba schools have one hour to perform the parade. Mine city is a big one so there’s a preliminar stage to find the 20 schools that will parade on carnival.
A photographer always tries to come with different ways of showing what one sees…That’s the job. The tech aspects of the trade are the less important to me. The signature of the one who took the shot is what photography is all about. So this is an important subject… I took this shot in Berlin in the memorial for the murdered jews in europe.
here is another view from the memorial i just took from the web:
Even a Kiss can have many interpretations. It’s not always love and it’s not always good. I say that because after looking at my files i found the most “appropriate” shot for this week’s challenge. At least in my opinion. At least is not something usual. At least it makes us think. I shot this in Berlin and this is a painting done by Dmitri Vrubel at the famous Berlin wall on East Side Gallery part. It’s a mile of the wall that was given to artists all over the world to paint about the wall itself. This particular painting is based on an also famous photograph of an “infamous” kiss between soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and his East German counterpart Erich Honecker. As another sad piece of news i read that this and all the other paintings on the wall of East Side Gallery were destroyed by renovations on the wall itself. Those are scars outliving art itself.
And here is a photo i found on the web of how it is today. Really sadly destroyed.
