Johnathan Borofsky’s Hammering Man, a monumental moving sculpture, is 48 feet tall and weighing in at approximately 22,000 pounds. It honors the women and men of the working classes in impressive style.
Selected from thousands of entries submitted by iPhone photographers from 139 countries around the world,… Niu won the Grand Prize for his image of a 70-year-old Khalkha with his golden eagle in the Tianshan Mountains in the south of Xinjiang, China.
Titled Man and the Eagle, the image captures a tough man with a weather-beaten face who shares a tender companionship with his wild, trained bird.
Hotel lobby, restaurants, and bars are good at using beautiful lights and colors for creating ambience.
The one above is an example of using water fountains and lights to create a point of interest to welcome customers. Another idea is to build a fireplace and have a sculpture over it to make guests feel comfort and cozy ambience.
The furniture, rusty lamp, and hardwood floor is always a beautiful way to bring the old time feeling to the guests; and they didn’t forget to add warm colors and lights.
Leanne Cole has been hosting the Monochrome Madness weekly photo theme for over three years (the current one is MM 3-38). MM is where I submitted my first B&W photo and where I have learned to appreciate monochrome photos.
Here are the B&W photos I submitted to MM the past three weeks.
Photo 2 and 3 were taken with iPhone 6+.

As we were taking a night walk through the London Tower Bridge, I felt the great contrast of old and new. This historical bridge construction began in 1886 and took eight years to complete and the Shard started in 2009 and completed in 2012.
Through the arch bridge tower gate, you are in a modern business district.
Here you see the the historical Tower of London (founded in 1066) standing majestically in front of all the new modern buildings.
These night photos were taken with high ISO without a tripod.
