incredible waves

Through this new article i wanna take you in a little "trip" that will present you a amazing thing: water!!!
A property of water is that it could take any shape and the next photos are about this property.
We need water and we have to protect it because the polution will take away this magnific clean water that support the life. Enjoy the view!!!
When you take a look at his images, it's hard to imagine that the ocean is filling up with pollution and being emptied of its wildlife. As you click through these incredible photos, you'll remember just why it's worth fighting to save our oceans.

The colors captured by light and water can be really stunning, as shown off here. Thankfully, this wave is full of rich yellows created by the sunlight, and not some scary toxic substances. As more and more ocean area is turned into marine preserve, we can hope that that more of this kind of pristine scene will be around to be photographed.

Despite the good intentions of many to try and recycle and contain trash, much of it still finds its way into the water. We now have a bad situation on our hands out in the Pacific Ocean, where an area estimated to be twice the size of the continental US is swirling with plastic debris. It's called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, or the Pacific Trash

People who want to be near the oceans can be a significant drain on the very environment they're trying to appreciate. Development has serious impacts on coastal areas, and Baja is one such example. But it doesn't have to be so. Responsible builders, vigilant citizens and conscientious tourists all can help humans and the oceans coexist

Keeping the sand as clean as the water is a big part of coastal preservation. Beach clean-up days have a great impact, thanks to active citizens. Keeping an eye on development is also part of ensuring we have beaches in the future.

Ocean activism can be part of your daily life even if you don't live near waves like these. It's all part of being green. Adjusting your diet, your drain habits, and your vacation destinations can all help.

There's a wide range of organizations doing great work to care for the oceans. Oceana is one of them, with more than 300,000 members. The group does some amazing work to combat dirty fishing, destructive trawling, sharks, seafood contamination, sea turtles, fishing subsidies, and global warming.

OceansWatch is another organization doing its part. It works with yachting and boating clubs, and diving communities to protect coastlines, marine life, and ocean health. It also provides ocean-going research vessels and expertise, including biologists and support crew, to coastal communities in need.

A few of the ideas on the table for saving the oceans includes geoengineering, an obviously highly controversial topic. From seeding the ocean with iron fillings to dumping limestone to combat acidification, we seem to be throwing all kinds of ideas onto the brainstorm board in our efforts to help the ocean thrive again.

In enjoying the purity of the water in this photo, we can see how the ocean can inspire so much art. Jewelry inspired by the ocean is one way to try and carry its beauty around with you, and be reminded to treat it kindly.

A little bit from....arhitecture

The term Architecture can refer to a process, a profession or documentation. As a process, architecture is the activity of designing and constructing buildings and other physical structures by a person or a computer, primarily to provide shelter. As a profession, architecture is the role of those persons or machines providing architectural services. As documentation, usually based on drawings, architecture defines the structure and/or behavior of a building or any other kind of system that is to be or has been constructed. In the late 20th century many new concept was included in the compass of both structure and function. Now days, before performing any action we keeping future in our visions. same applies in Architecture also. In the selection below, I present you over 15 Strange & Fantastic Buildings Architecture of modern world.

To restrict the meaning of (architectural) formalism to art for art’s sake is not only reactionary; it can also be a purposeless quest for perfection or originality which degrades form into a mere instrumentality”.

Among the philosophies that have influenced modern architects and their approach to building design are rationalism, empiricism, structuralism, poststructuralism, and phenomenology.

On the difference between the ideals of “architecture” and mere “construction”, the renowned 20th C. architect Le Corbusier wrote: “You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces: that is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: This is beautiful. That is Architecture” .
