A neighbor’s living wall and roof garden is my submission to this weeks challenge. Saturated, colorful and alive. Hope you get inspired as I am with going “green”.
Having seen Vancouver for the first time, I now include it in my top five favorite cities in the world. The interesting sights, the friendly people, the spectacular views, the ease of transport, the excellent and diverse food choices, the walkable/”bikable” city, in general. Please do note that Vancouver can be expensive, so compare and walk around for less pricey options. There are many to choose from.
Before closing this series, here is a promise I made to this guy. Hey there, I lost your tumblr account but you have mine on your notepad, so send it to me and I’ll link your account here.
Palm Springs has a lot to offer besides the desert, the cool hotels like the Riviera Resort & Spa or the Ace Hotel, movie star homes and art. That’s why in spite of the almost unbearable summer heat, I keep coming back.
Still using the map of Modern Palm Springs, I ventured towards the hillier side of town and saw these cluster of homes. Even without gates, they are almost hidden from street view, using boulders and desert plants, probably to protect them from the elements, photographers included.
The short walk in the desert made me think of solitude and peace, no wonder some do cross the Sahara, Australia and even Christoph Rehage, across China. Watch this video as he does it while growing his hair and beard using time lapse photography.
117 degrees did not stop me from taking a photographic tour of “Modern” Palm Springs. The self-guided map is $5.00 at the Visitors Center, previously a Tramway Gas Station built in 1965 by Albert Frey. If you love all things modern, Palm Springs is a must, however I suggest visiting during the winter.
Happy 4th of July, America!
