Nature and Landscapes
Urban and City
This is the very top of the roughly 1000 stairs leading to Yamadera temple. I would love to pretend that getting there was no problem at all, but lets just say I had to sit down for a minute or 10.
Anyway, the reward was absolutely amazing - this super old wooden viewpoint was full of little stickers with prayers and offered a great view onto the surrounding mountains.
Believe it or not - I hadn't actually seen such wave breakers until I arrived in Amalfi, Italy. I had all kinds of theories as to why these things were on the beach and around the piers, but thinking about them now ... Anyway, I am glad they were there and I got the chance to incorporate them into this shot.
New Yorks Flatiron Building has been seen in countless movies, pictures, postcards (which are also pictures I suppose)... And rightfully so! Even though I saw it very often in print, it still looked odd to me when I was standing in front of it. So... flat!
Anyway, in front of it, there was a little art installation - some metal pipes that were arranged in what resembled a beehive (apologies to the artist if I misinterpreted this hehe). I thought why not using the chance and capture the building together with a little of what is happening right in front of it! That is the result - art in art.
