Fisherman’s Bastion, Budapest by DariaKlepikova

Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest is one of the top Budapest attractions without a doubt. The present day lovely lookout towers / decorative fortification of Fisherman’s Bastion were built in the 19th century to serve as a lookout tower for the best panoramic views in Budapest, Hungary. Needless to say, there used to be real castle walls where now you can take fantastic photos from, but the present day structure has never served as an actual fortification in Buda.

Monastery of the Holy Trinity, Meteora by DariaKlepikova

Monastery of the Holy Trinity, Meteor
The Holy Trinity Monastery (Greek: Μονή Αγίας Τριάδος) (also known as Agia Triada, Ayías Triádhos, Ayia Triada; all meaning “Holy Trinity”) is an Eastern Orthodox monastery in central Greece, situated in the Peneas Valley northeast of the town of Kalambaka. It is situated at the top of a rocky precipice over 400 metres high and forms part of 24 monasteries which were originally built at Meteora, one of the oldest still existing of the Meteora monasteries (Meteora means “suspended in the air” in Greek). Six of the 24 monasteries are still active and open to visitors. The church was constructed between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and is included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites titled Meteora. The monastery was featured in the 1981 James Bond film, For Your Eyes Only.

Deptford Sky is well protected from the Aliens. by tmrother

We shall fight them on the beaches, we shall fight them in the air!
Famous words by Winston Churchill still echo in today’s Europe.
Deptford is ready for the alien invasion. The blockade at port Calle to keep the aliens from the shores of Britain is going reasonable well (I managed somehow to slip through) and now Mayor Boris declared to protect all the roof access by installing wire mesh on all flat roofs in the city. Deptford was one of the first to go with the program and ‘Ben Pimlott building’ is prime example.
Fortunately most of Deptford is still old, no flat roofs, so only few structures had to be retrofitted. This building from 2005 by Alsop Architects contains Visual, digital art studios and something called ‘Centre for Cognition, Culture and Computation’ (CCC&C), which would be of special interest to North African and middle east aliens.

The ‘scribble sculpture’ as it is called was actually part of the building and is constructed from 229 separate pieces of steel bars. William Alsop is a innovative architect and is also responsible for Art College building in Toronto.

A postcard from New Cross Inn, Deptford by tmrother

An old postcard from the late 1940’s, received from my Deptford friend Joseph, when he just crossed the Channel and rented a small 10’x 10′ dark room in the Inn. He was of course freezing in the so called English summer, but the heating required a Shilling to be put in the slot.
The shower down the corridor was also coin operated, so he would used the bucket in the yard. At least beer was cheap in those good old days. He was working in the ‘Deptford Royal Dockyards’, where majority of Deptford men was slavering. The dockyard (renamed Convoys) closed around 1975 leaving him penniless. He opened a Fish and Chips stand on High Street (using Thames River fish only) a prospered. Most of his customer died slowly from the heavy metal content of the fish, but on the bright site, he always got new customers. As Deptford gentrified, he said the heck with tradition and started a ‘Joshi Sushi’ (using the same source for the fish). He now owns the New Cross Inn and several houses in the neighbourhood. The moral of the story? Fish is good for you! Interestingly, Deptford population steadily declined after 1975….

geometry of life by ShikhaJain

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

― Albert Einstein
