I visited the Denver Botanic Gardens next to Cheesman Park in Colorado on a lovely spring day. They were having their spring plant sale and I got a hint of all the wonderful western, international and water gardens there.
Right on the water in St. Petersburg Florida is a modern and unusual building. The surreal yet sumptuous architecture of the Dali Museum is worth the experience, no matter what's on display. But you'll want to stay for the permanent collection plus whatever they have in the temporary exhibit halls, too.
This week I have a simply stunning piece of architecture to show you! It’s the Innovation, Science and Technology (IST) building at Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland.
In my post about the Airstream Ranch last week, I mentioned I’d seen sights along Interstate 4 recently I never knew existed. The IST at Florida Polytechnic was a prime example. (FYI: In the same post last week I also described the HDR digital photo process that gives photos a marvelous depth and interest. I used that process for the photo of the IST above.)
The headquarters of the Munich Reinsurance Company in Germany resides in this imposing piece of architecture built just for their own purposes. Designed by architects Oswald Eduard Bieber and Wilhelm Hollweck; built in 1912/13, it's located across the street from the Munich Riding School on the edge of the English Garden.
Happy Superbowl Sunday to all my American friends! Enjoy the game, the parties and the commercials! I’m there in spirit!
Yesterday I made the 30-minute train
trip to Nuremberg. You may remember I attempted to visit the German National
Museum to see the Albrecht Durer exhibit last year. While I didn’t get
to see that particular exhibit, I knew that Nuremberg has six or seven good
museums and that I would get to see something interesting if I went there.
