Unique vantage points from root tops mixed with a healthy dose of blue hour coupled with a 70-200 telephoto boosted by high ISO makes a great combo. Mix of warm and cool tones is something I personally enjoy. Before the sun rose there was another sun shining bright between the urban chaos of Dubai landscape - the mosque

Arrived in Pula yesterday and was blown away! How is this place not full of tourists?! Its like Dubrovnik and Rome had a baby. This small temple is dedicated to the Roman Emperor Augustus. You can find it in the centre of Pula's Roman Forum.
Only if Singapore wasn’t so expensive. So the place is not as strict as I expected but still has a lot of rules. Had a good time there but I think I’ve had enough of this. City life doesn’t excite me much.
“Piazza Navona, Rome” - ITALY 🇮🇹
Defined as a public space in the last years of 15th century, when the city market was transferred there from the Campidoglio, Piazza Navona was transformed into a highly significant example of Baroque Roman architecture and art during the pontificate of Innocent X, who reigned from 1644 until 1655, and whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced the piazza. It features important sculptural and architectural creations: in the center stands the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or Fountain of the Four Rivers (1651) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, topped by the Obelisk of Domitian, brought in pieces from the Circus of Maxentius; the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone by Francesco Borromini, Girolamo Rainaldi, Carlo Rainaldi and others; and the aforementioned Pamphili palace, also by Girolamo Rainaldi, that accommodates the long gallery designed by Borromini and frescoed by Pietro da Cortona.
Piazza Navona has two other fountains. At the southern end is the Fontana del Moro with a basin and four Tritons sculpted by Giacomo della Porta (1575) to which, in 1673, Bernini added a statue of a Moor, or a North African Muslim, wrestling with a dolphin. At the northern end is the Fountain of Neptune (1574) also created by Giacomo della Porta; the statue of Neptune, by Antonio Della Bitta, was added in 1878 to create a balance with La Fontana del Moro.
During its history, the piazza has hosted theatrical events and other ephemeral activities. From 1652 until 1866, when the festival was suppressed, it was flooded on every Saturday and Sunday in August in elaborate celebrations of the Pamphilj family. The pavement level was raised in the 19th century, and in 1869 the market was moved to the nearby Campo de' Fiori.

I don t blame those artists, that stay in the their nice studio, trying to copy a nice postcard or a photo magazine from the tablet or pc, with small, nice and expensive painting tools, with even more smaller brushe strokes or complacent color background..... Or even worse who paint with one hand and with the other hold a cell phone to make social videos to get likes around....I totally DON T BLAME this "artists" again....but be outside and be inspired from everything , a tree, a cloud, a stain the ground, a rubbish bin, whatever...make the difference...art is struggling with your-self everyday , with your securities,...who do not do this is just a bourgeois but never a sercher of happines
