Years ago, when the Twin Towers were new, my brother gave me a really cool 3-D postcard of them, which I had for years. Wish I had it now! I looked at your picture, Kerouac, before reading the caption. It's a wonderful shot, but sad and shocking when you realize what it is.
Love the hot-colored paving stones (?), Rikita. What was the occasion.
Gosh, can you imagine coming around the corner and confronting that grouping in #39?!
Rikita, the waterfall is too beautiful for words and I love how you captured the various shapes and textures and the cool wetness. Is it natural, or man-made?
bixa - the pavement is from an art-festival that takes place once per year in the area i live in. it's called "48 hours neukölln"... not sure if the waterfall is natural, i suppose it might not be though... it's in a park...
Yes, I was disappointed with the album though spindrift - its similar to the kanji for fire (in Japanese) but I have a feeling the sign writer didn't really understand what he was writing, it is slightly wrong (unless that is a different character I don't know, very possible!)
The Beaugrenelle is a treasure store for potential kitschy, quirky, ironic or post-apocalyptic imagery. I quite love the incipient forest on the roof and the general rusty Ford Pinto ambiance of the surrounding architecture. Actually much more interesting and culturally and architecturally significant than yet another block of solidly built but boringly generic six floor Haussmannia.
