ক্ষয়ে ক্ষয়েও বাঁচতে পারারা .. 🍃 এক একটা মুহূর্ত যেমন পেরিয়ে যাওয়ার পথে সময়ের দোরে কড়া নেড়ে জানান দিয়ে যায় তার শেষ অস্তিত্ব , তেমনি এক একটা ইট দাঁড়িয়ে থাকে পেড়িয়ে আসা অতীতের ফলক হয়ে , কত সময়ের ছাপ লেগে পরে খোসে যায় যাতায়াতে , অতীতে ক্ষয় হতে হতে স্মৃতিরা গুটিয়ে যায়, আর অভ্যাসগুলো আবছা .. ~🌻 . . . #travelinglover #travelingstory #mamoryfrommalda #adinastory #summer #dayout #moments #historical #redes #feelings #neature #greenes #neaturelover #lovethatplace #lovetopose #photoholic #trytobedifferent #happytobeme #behappy #okbye 🤐

The "death roll" is a maneuver performed by crocodiles on their prey. It involves the croc gripping another animal in its jaws, dragging it into the water, then rotating, using its body weight to turn over and over, still holding its prey.

Did you know YOU helped the @KingWilliamAssociation plant over 500 trees since 2002! That’s right, when you buy your ticket to party with us on the last Saturday of Fiesta, you’re making a donation to the King William Association. That’s because the @KingWilliamFair is the annual fundraiser for the Association. Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of Fairgoers, the Fair raises funds for arts, education, and community improvements. - One of these community improvements started in the fall of 2002, the King William/Lavaca Tree Project. The section of Mission Trail from Pereida St. to the St. Mary’s underpass had just been completed with 42 tree wells. The boards of King William and Lavaca Neighborhood Associations voted to adopt that part of the park way and sponsor the tree plantings. A committee was formed, funds raised, volunteers drafted and the 42 trees were planted. - Since 2002, over 500 trees have been planted along curbs in both residential and commercial areas. After all these years the trees are now adding beauty to our urban environment and trees are still being planted where appropriate sites are found. - Thank you Fairgoers for making San Antonio such a beautiful place to live 🙏🏼 - 📸 @Leavitt2mephotography . . . . . . . . #Kingwilliamfair #kingwilliamfair2020 #kingwilliamfair20 #kingwilliam #kwfair #kwfair2020 #fiestasa #fiesta2020 #fiestasanantonio #fiestasanantonio2020 #fiestasanantonio20 #fiesta #vivafiesta #sanantonio #satx #igsanantonio #igsatx #igtexas #sanantoniohistory #historic #historical #communityhistory #celebratinghistory #Community #communityfirst #communitybuilding #communitybuilder #communitybuild #communitybuilders #communitybuilt

Why does a front porch, moulding and huge oak trees make my heart ❤️ ❤️ go pitter patter? Just love alllll the southern feels!! . My trip to Savannah was just the right thing for me after a hectic stressful time. Long walks through history admiring the architecture and taking In all the beauty. There is still much recovery to be had but I’m sure glad to have had the break and the ability to just be me!. 📷: @foreverconstance. . . #savannah #georgia #frontporch #relax #healing #corbels #history #southern #weekend #weekendgetaway #takeawalk #keyhoehouse #southerncharm #historical #architecture

“Flap: the wings of a white angel” • • • “That’s where it all began: the fallen angel exhibition. I hoped that something would eventually drag me out of the funk I was in as I watched those lonely people sitting on a 7 or 8 seat modular sofa. Or from the sense of utter uselessness I felt when the sofa turned out to be too small to accommodate the hordes of friends and relatives who had come for a family gathering or an office party. The days and months passed, and suddenly it was late September, 1999. In my dream, I was looking down on a rolling red plain, like one of those gorgeous photos of deserts. All at once a downpour of black rain stated to fall from a yellow sky, first flooding shallow valleys, then rising higher and higher until the entire area was submerged. Just a silver of land rose above the tarry black surface. In my dream I felt like a powerless god, in a state of unbearable anguish, when the rain abruptly stopped and I awoke. The first words I said to myself were: Freedom, that’s what it is! Yes! Freedom emerging like a lucky island if red earth. I got up, in that typically fuzzy, ‪Sunday-morning‬ trace. I made myself a cup of tea, took a pair of scissors and a sheet of paper, and cut out the shape I had seen in my dream. I decided to call it: La langue rouge.” Francesco Binfarè • • #edra #moderne #modern #minimalist #classical #historical #versatile_design #art #aesthetic_quality #ContemporaryHomes #moderntechnology #innovation #luxury #creative #artwork   #livingroom #villa   #artlovers #architecturelovers #realestate #museum #FrancescoBinfaré

As the responsibilities of the #federalreserve grew, and as the equipment used to process #currency and checks became larger, the building at 160 West Fort was no longer large enough to accommodate our operations in #Detroit. We purchased adjacent lots and hired #archtectural firm Smith, Hinchman & Gryllis to design an additions. The project was designed by Minoru Yamasaki and the modern glass and marble addition opened in 1951. #historicalpix #architecture #history #historical #federalreservebankofchicago #federalreserve #federalreservebankofchicagodetroit #chicagofed #architecturalphotography #architecturalphotograph #blackandwhitephotography

Working on another blog post for my Thailand series and reminiscing on this super fun day hopping around on our scooters to so many gorgeous temple complexes. We fit in so many during our short stay but there are so many more I want to see (so I guess we'll just have to go back soon 😉). The intricate details and the history of each place was so fascinating to learn about. Since we came in June which isn't as busy of a month tourist wise and started really early there were not a ton of people at all at each place and it was really enjoyable to be able to take your time and walk around without hoards of people around you which can be overwhelming. It made the experience even more peaceful. During our time there in June we only caught up in rain a couple times and it never lasted very long. We got plenty of sunshine both in Chiang Mai and on Koh Samet. Lodging prices seemed cheaper, crowds felt noticeably thinner particularly on the island we went to, and again the weather was not bad at all! I hear it really starts to shift in July/August with more rain. Definitely recommend early to mid June if you're looking for a good "off-season" time to go. I have about 4 or 5 more blog posts to go for this series before I move on to Sri Lanka posts so I'll have a lot of information up for any of my friends headed that way soon! . . . . . . . . . . . #tbt #chiangmai #thailand #amazingthailand #travelthailand #landofsmiles #temple #beautiful #beautifuldestinations #travel #wanderlust #architecture #art #religion #buddhism #history #culture #historical #sightseeing #traveler #girlswhotravel #dametraveler #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #vacation #holiday #exploretocreate #welivetoexplore #roamtheplanet #liveyouradventure
