We are, aren’t we? The lucky ones, including animals, can build their own home but most of the buildings around us are built yet. Here are some from around here. Which happens to be Tuscany. Which architect built my fortune?
In her post to this week’s Amy-hosted Lens-Artists challenge, Zimmerbitch mentions that concrete is “the second most used substance on the planet after water, and probably the most damaging to our increasingly endangered environment” (from the article in Guardian which I have yet to read), and accordingly posts a photo of a wasp nest. Biodegradable architecture for the win.
I almost went that way and searched for only animal structures, but then realised that humans are animals too.
This is the first half of last year in my photos of buildings. Not only Tuscany, there will be a bit of Rome and wider Lazio region and Orvieto in Umbria too. With the rainbow. The gallery ends with some designated buildings for animals, including photographers.
But at the beginning, they say, there were pyramids.
Oh, and if somebody is keeping count, yesterday my blog remained without its daily post. This is Italy. Builders were on strike.
