"Halle-Neustadt consists of rows of apartment buildings surrounded by pleasant-looking green spaces, with a central commercial area and road corridor featuring large, articulated buses. The new city was also connected to Halle by an extensive streetcar system and an S-Bahn (commuter-rail line), and the city met the "Ideal Communist City" density of about 70,000 people per square mile.
The Stockholm planners' paper noted that almost all the apartments had two bedrooms because government planners decreed "that the ideal family consisted of four family members and that the number of flat rooms should be one less than the number of family members." They also noted that the government discouraged car ownership by placing most of the parking on the outskirts of the city "at a relatively large distance from the residential houses."
What the Swedish researchers failed to note in their 1998 presentation, but faithfully recorded in their full paper, was that Halle-Neustadt was only "sustainable" during the socialist period."

Continuing my tour of architecture. 😊
A must see when in Little Rock is the Heifer International HQ. It is a LEED Platinum certified building. Made out of recycled, local, and sustainable materials it maximizes the use of sunlight and captures rainwater in a tower hidden behind the colorful images at the left of the frame. Alison and I got to tour it last year.
Light breeze, early morning, ebb tide, fish biting — maintaining social distance on the lagoon.
Gold Coast sunrise on the Currumbin Creek Estuary — where fish are big and boats are small.
This was my reward for waking up in the early morning... Light, crops, clouds. Perfect.
Nap time now...
I've been wanting to do a photo to go along with this one for a while and with the theme of "Blown Away" going over at Theme of the Week, this image came to mind.
I think that turbines are both beautiful and scary at the same time. While I appreciate the benefits of using wind as energy seeing these huge robots spanning the horizon really freaks me out. They're like artificial forest slowly taking over the landscape although they tend to harm birds rather than protect them. I'm certainly pro-sustainable energy.
I feel like the last week I was in zombie mode. Wake up, work, eat, run, photo, sleep, repeat. Hopefully it was only a week-long funk and I can get back to normal soon.
TOTW: Blown Away

Today the buzz word is sustainable everything has to be sustainable and not just one use and throw away,
Not a bad concept considering how much we throw away that doesn't degrade anytime soon. Its not a new idea by any means but upcycling was left to the happy clappy folk of the world or the poor.
Now it is getting fashionable once again not least because what we are doing to the environment but also due the covid thing some people don't have the income they once had so make do and mend has been revamped for a modern age, and those who have got money can't go out to spend it at the moment neither do they have anywhere to wear what they do buy.
A large number of people have also taken up sewing during the lockdown to keep themselves occupied, This brings us to my little part in saving the world,
As you know i now get most of my clothes from charity shops giving a new lease of life to no longer loved items and helping a charity to boot. I am also handy with a needle and thread and have taken in a number of my partners old dresses such as this one above.
When a dress is so big it can't really be modified i tend to then make a skirt out them.
This is todays look and the shoes are painfully practical but in keeping with the period, so much easier doing the house work wearing these, Yes Cindy I did house work today
Local vegetables and sustainable stock photography look beautiful together, don't they?

The Tour Carpe Diem is a 162-metre (531 ft) tall skyscraper in the La Défense business district, near Paris in France. Completed in 2013.
In days of yore, promoters were selling square meters in the highest possible skyscraper. Nowadays, there is much buzz around sustainable skyscrapers. Sustainable design calls for holes in the building, dented facades and dodgy angles. High-rise buildings boast green energy efficiency, some even claim sustainable vertical density.

Me: why, love?
Irene (firm): because the clouds are splendid!

Sustainable and clean energy?
History shows that it is easy to do!
Watch this fossil machine,
grab it out of the blue.

This awesome building is on the outskirts of Nottingham University and I can't believe I've only just discovered it! This image was taken with the Sigma Art 85mm at around f5 and 100 iso. The colours, the lighting are litteraly perfect.
The beauty of photography lies in exploring: places, fields and ways of living. A photographer has to wonder all the time in order to document what he sees. That most of the time means coming back to the origins and enjoying life.
Hope you like it, enjoy!
