The Helix Bridge in Singapore; a design inspired by human DNA. This was something very difficult for me to imagine, even before I had actually seen it. This connection of science and architecture stunned me, and I felt that I would not be able to return to Berlin without capturing this rare composition.
In our modern age, there are only 1,200 fully operational windmills in the Netherlands. Several in the “Old Holland” region, including the famous beauties from Zaanse Schans. Over a few centuries ago, there were over 10,000 windmills across the Netherlands and they were used to pump water out of the lowlands, to make flour from grains and to press oil from seeds or saw wood.
Whilst visiting Amsterdam, we had to get up early for at least one our mornings to visit the incredible and charming Zaanse Schans. Gustavo told us that this area is supposedly a “fake village” and that there were no residents, so we made the best use of our visit – making as much noise as we desired. When the sun was up, a young man came out of the house you see above, complaining about the noise.
The Shard is another famous icon from London. It is built from 11,000 glass panels, creating an area of glass that is equal to eight football pitches. This giant glasshouse during the day appeared in a navy colour, but when the early morning sun shined upon it – it was just pure gold.
The Gloriette ensemble located up on the hill and The Neptune Fountain are part of the park surrounding Schönbrunn Palace – a must-see in Vienna. The outcome of this picture was more than what I had expected. The air on this day was hazy because of the heat, however, this haziness gave a glow to the marble statues on The Fountain and The Gloriette itself creating such a beautiful canvas.
