Monsters..

Humans have this infinite capacity that creates monsters out of every day objects. Children show this the most and reflect their inner fears in shadows and other inanimate items. Would you care to find your monster from this photo of a fountain?

Superlambanana – Mandela

The lambanana is the creation of Japanese artist Taro Chiezo. While the original statue of the lambanana was only 4 inches tall, a gigantic 17 foot bright yellow version was installed in Liverpool. The statue is a cross between a lamb and banana and recognises the dangers of genetic engineering as well as pays homage to Liverpool’s role as a major trading port for lamb and fruits such as the banana.

The following picture is of the Mandela superlambanana at the Museum of Liverpool that commemorates the life and achievements of the great statesman.

Urbine-ator!!

The latest design in wind turbine technology for urban settings appears to be the vertical turbine. I have read somewhere that these are called urbines (for urban turbines)!! The photo below is a composite of 3 shots taken in quick succession and then merged.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time to go and see the Beatles show or visit the Cavern Club in town. Still, there’s always a next time!
