Over the years I have written four letters to The New York Times.Two of them were published which shows that my view points were taken into consideration.

My Antarctica!

I definitely like to create photos. I would like to photograph Antarctica. Since I couldn't go there...I created my own Antarctica. Background?
Hawaii. Iceberg? The snow in New York City...and voilá...My Antarctica!.

SUBWAY PERFORMERS!


Anyone who rides the subways in New York City, once in a while can be entertained by the subway performers. Some of them perform on the platforms. Others inside the subway cars. Here is one of the best called Ikeen Jones.

Manhattanhenge

New Yorkers, get ready for another chance to marvel at Manhattanhenge.

For two days every spring and summer, the sunset lines up with Manhattan’s street grid, creating a gorgeous celestial spectacle. For a brief moment, the sun’s golden rays illuminate the city’s buildings and traffic with a breathtaking glow. The New York Times/Nicholas St. Fleur/MikePont/Getty Images.

The tallest apartment house in New York City.

 It is the tallest apartment house in the world and it is not totally completed yet. It is located on  West 57th street in New York City. On a semi-cloudy day, its top disappear. That is why they are called skyscrapers.

Beautiful from the top...but do not get too close because you can face the ugly.

Out of the Concrete Jungle, we can find a very quiet and romantic alley on Riverside Park on the banks of the Hudson River in New York City

WE HAVE TO BEHAVE!


ROBOTS

I love this. It's a pity that while technology advances with the speed of light, the humans become dumb and dumber. ( CNN)

Don't underestimate the power of men!

Size doesn't matter. Bigger is not necessarily the best! Three types of photos were necessary to create this fantasy!

That is for me!

An American aerospace startup called Hermeus has revealed an early concept of a supersonic commercial airplane that could breeze over the Atlantic in just 90 minutes at speeds of up to Mach 5 (almost 4,000 mph) — or twice as fast as the iconic Concorde.

Antarctica?

I love to manipulate photos. Not just point out and shoot, but creating something new from two photos. The ice on this photo is just snow from a street in New York City. The Polar Bear...just a figurine.

New rule from Japan!

(CNN) — Street food is a staple of many countries. But does that mean you should both buy and eat your food in the street? Japan is struggling to answer that question, particularly when it comes to popular tourist areas.
Kamakura, in the prefecture of Kanagawa, is one of them.
In April, the city issued an official ordinance asking visitors not to eat while walking.
One major concern is trash from packaging and leftover food, which can attract animals and make a mess that locals will have to clean up.

Flip-flops are OUT!

(CNN) — The Cinque Terre coastline of Italy has an almost mythic status among travelers -- who haven't seen photographs of the pastel-colored houses built into rugged cliffs, surrounded by the bright blue sea, and fallen instantly in love?
In person, the region's even more spectacular -- these five picturesque fishing villages are a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a reason.
But if you travel there this summer with only your flimsy sandals and flip-flops in tow, you might have a bit of a shock.
The Cinque Terre National Park authority is running a public information campaign warning tourists about climbing the cliffs without appropriate footwear.
And if you choose to ignore the advice, you could face fines of between €50 ($56) and €2,500 ($2,826).
It's all because mountain rescue teams are becoming increasingly exasperated with rescuing ill-prepared visitors on the mountainous walkways.

WE are destroy our planet!

Um novo relatório histórico das Nações Unidas pinta uma imagem sombria do planeta. Ele alerta 1 milhão de 8 milhões de espécies do planeta para enfrentar a ameaça de extinção por causa de ... nós. A população crescente da humanidade e o consumo aparentemente insaciável estão destruindo o mundo natural, diz o relatório. A taxa global de extinção de espécies está listada como "dezenas a centenas de vezes mais altas" do que nos últimos 10 milhões de anos. O encolhimento do habitat, a exploração dos recursos naturais, as mudanças climáticas e a poluição são os principais responsáveis pela perda de espécies. E essa não é a única notícia ruim recente a ser divulgada. Outro estudo diz que o permafrost está derretendo tão rápido no Ártico que está aumentando o número de gases do efeito estufa liberados na atmosfera e danificando o equipamento que os cientistas usam para medi-lo.

The cherries are in bloom!

The cherries are in full bloom and in Japan, they are venerated as a symbol of life.

It's really a sky-scrape!

It's really scraping the sky if the sky could be a scrape. It's the tallest apartment house in the world in Manhattan, still under construction. In a cloudy day, the top disappear!
