oops! (wrong time, wrong place) by marekboguszak

Wrong time – lamps went out a minute ago (and the sun did not make its way through the fog and clouds in the next 2 hours). Wrong place – either you get same shot as many others or (even worse) you get same shot but enriched by many tripods and photographers. 🙂

Foggy morning on Charles Bridge in Prague.

The Rising Tide by hampualexandrunicolae

The first London commission of world-renowned underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, The Rising Tide, is concealed and revealed by the daily ebb and flow of the tide on the Vauxhall foreshore. These four proud horses and their riders highlight the role of the Thames as the lifeblood of London, shaping the city’s great history as an ever evolving centre for culture, industry and commerce.

Romulus and Remus by AdeRussell

The Capitoline Wolf – a bronze sculpture of a she-wolf suckling twin human infants, inspired by the legend of the founding of Rome. According to the legend, when Numitor, grandfather of the twins Romulus and Remus, was overthrown by his brother Amulius, the usurper ordered the twins to be cast into the Tiber River. They were rescued by a she-wolf who cared for them until a herdsman, Faustulus, found and raised them. The Capitoline Wolf has been housed since 1471 in the Palazzo dei Conservatori on the Campidoglio (the ancient Capitoline Hill), Rome, Italy. (description courtesy of Wikipedia).
