Clown’s number

[Quebec City, Quebec, Canada]
Found in Quartier Petit Champlain in Quebec City.

Forest Canyon Overlook

[Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA]
On the Train Ridge Road (US34) – experiencing alpine tundra and waiting for more stormy clouds. Stop #5 – Forest Canyon Overlook.
For sure Train Ridge Road is one of the most scenic America’s roads and the highest continuous highway in USA. It was not possible to get much further, as the road was still closed for winter season (picture taken in May).
Quite unusual to get at this elevation (11716 feet, which is over 3,5km) with such comfortable road.

Autopista Nacional

[Cuba]
During short break on Havana – Trinidad route: Eco-romantic version of highway.

Girls havin’ fun

[Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong]
Mahjong – simple things can give you a lot of fun. No age limitation. Wanna join?

Yellow hope

[Death Valley National Park, California, USA]
Death Valley – saline, cracked shell. It is the hottest and driest of the national parks in USA, with temperatures reaching 50°C. The only water you can find here is very salty and not drinkable, of course. Even thought, some plants have adapted to this environment – impressing determination to survive.

U2 karma

[Dublin, Ireland]
Something for U2 fans: grafitti on the wall of old(?) U2 studio at Hanover Quay, Dublin.

Police line-up

[Seoul, Korea]
Young Police squad practise in front of Deoksugung palace.
I’ve seen similar sights many times during my Seoul trip. Still do not know what is the story behind, but it was quite puzzling and somehow distressing, each time.

Deoksugung

[Seoul, Korea]
At Deoksugung, also known as Gyeongun-gung, Deoksugung Palace, or Deoksu Palace.
One of my favourite places in Seoul.

Japan style car-art

[Tokyo, Japan]
Have you ever falled in love with a car? Pure Japan-style. Pure power. Pure hi-tech. Now finally available in Europe – for those who can afford it.

Yellow bar

[Trinidad, Cuba]
One of bars in historical part of Trinidad – waiting for tourists and their Dollar’s.

Wild, Wild West is dead

[Benton, California, USA]
Somewhere on the road during crazy road-trip from San Francisco,CA to Denver,CO. Refuel before heading to Death Valley’s deserts. Guy riding a horse is slowly approaching bar at the petrol station. Do I have sun-stroke already? It was something mystic,unreal. Wild, Wild West is dead.

In loving memory

[Howth, Ireland]
Celtic cross (Irish: cros Cheilteach) is a cross with a ring surrounding. It became popular for funerary monuments, spreading well beyond the British Isles.

Crispy pink

[Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong]
One of the things I love in Asia are street markets. Hong Kong have them as well and Flower Market being one of most colourful ones is worth visiting. It’s located in Mong Kok, next to the famous Bird Garden. Variety of colours is astonishing, what is actually not visible on this picture.

Missing part

[Athens, Greece]
Acropolis Restoration Project by wikipedia:
The Project began in 1975 and is now nearing completion. The aim of the restoration was to reverse the decay of centuries of attrition, pollution, destruction by acts of war, and misguided past restorations. The project included collection and identification of all stone fragments, even small ones, from the Acropolis and its slopes and the attempt was made to restore as much as possible using reassembled original material – with new marble from Mount Penteli used sparingly. All restoration was made using titanium dowels and is designed to be completely reversible, in case future experts decide to change things. A combination of cutting-edge modern technology and extensive research and reinvention of ancient techniques were used.
… A total of 2,675 tons of architectural members were restored, with 686 stones reassembled from fragments of the originals, 905 patched with new marble, and 186 parts made entirely of new marble. A total of 530 cubic meters of new Pentelic marble were used.

Road Runner

When you see fun-bike like this, you want to have it even if you do not have driving license.
Surprisingly, proud owner was from Europe.

el Malecón parada

[Havana, Cuba]
Going for a wedding in such car in any country would be something unusual and most probably quite expensive.
That’s not the case in Fidel’s country – thousand of those beautiful oldtimers are running on daily basis there (not all of them in such a good shape as the one depicted).
One day, Cuba will be a dreamland for oldtimer collectors from whole world – maybe it is already..
