Must See 3D Street Art!!

WOWza!!! I saw some of the pictures years ago, so I'm very excited to share these masterpieces with you now!!!

3D Street Art are illusionary 2-dimensional images that appear 3-dimensional when viewed from a fixed point through a camera lens.

Julian Beever is an English artist who is famous for his art on the pavements of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium, and Edgar Mueller are two most famous 3D street artists for now.

Isn't it just unbelievable!? :)

;) Like it?

Indian Rocks Beach, FL - Forget About Time!

In the spring 2011 I had a chance to go to Florida on vacation again, this time it was gorgeous Indian Rocks Beach, which is not very far from Tampa.
Indian Rocks Beach is a city in Pinellas County, Florida, United States. In 2007 the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 5,167. It lies on a barrier island between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway and has a total area of 3.6 km2: 2.3 km2 of it is land and 1.3 km2 of it (33.09%) is water.

So, it is right at the ocean, has a wonderful view, very friendly town and its citizens, clean, neat... ah, what else do you need for a good time at the beach..? The Beach!! The Sand!! The Ocean!! And I'd say, living close to it all - that was all included in this not long, but amazing trip!
Our house was 1 minute from the beach, it actually had its own little private road that led to it (oh things you can see from there! :P), so actually, you could say it was right ON the beach :))
Also, it awesome because of the fact that when it gets too hot, you just relax on a porch and still see and hear the ocean, so it makes you feel as if you never left the beach, but also you're very comfy! :D
(if you look closer at the picture above into the 1st car, the driver is waving at me - yeah, I was in a bathing suit ;) )

P.S. All pictures belong to me.

Have Fun Playing! ;)

The Game before bedtime: "HELPS AFTER A VERY TOUGH WORKING DAY": To play you will need:
- a person (you),
- bathtub with lines for drying your clothes above it,
- stockings
How to play:
Put the stockings on your head, get into the bathtub, stand up, put the legs (not yours, stocking legs :D) on the lines for drying clothes. SLOWLY start moving, making few steps. You're a Trolleybus!
If while doing it you use skis, you're a Tram!
If you wear skis AND turn the water on, you're a River Tram!
Meanwhile, if you drop a hair-drier in a water - you're an Electric Train!
And if you turn off the lights and put on the head flashlight, you're a Metro!!!

Have a great evening!!!

Grand Canyon - Feeling Free!

Do you remember Niagara Falls blog http://livelearnshineon.blogspot.com/2012/01/niagara-falls-just-dream.html ?? So this is like the ultimate #1 favorite place along with Niagara Falls, only it feels different - you feel FREE!! This is one unbelievably beautiful place where you can feel yourself as a real part of Mother Nature: makes you forget about everything, just relax and enjoy the stunningness (I know it's not even a word! :P) of its masterpieces!
The Grand Canyon is a steep-sided canyon carved by the Colorado River in the United States in the state of Arizona.  It is contained within and managed by Grand Canyon National Park, the Hualapai Tribal Nation (I'll blog about them some time later), and the Havasupai Tribe.

The Grand Canyon is 446 km long, up to 29 km wide and attains a depth of over 1,800 meters.
One of my favorite spots there was the Skywalk!!
The Grand Canyon Skywalk (opened since March 2008) is a transparent horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge which gives you the view of the canyon and its see-through bottom makes you feel like walking on air right above the canyon's base (the elevation at the Skywalk's location is 1,450 m!!!).

Here's my adventure in pictures, including the park, going to the mountain top, the Eagle Point eagle, Skywalk and Colorado River :)

There's one crazy picture with me sitting at the edge of the Canyon and a sign: "Falling Hazard"... not gonna post it to save few people from heart attacks :D sorry!
P.S. All pictures belong to me.

My Show: Kylie Minogue - Aphrodite Live 2011

Hello there!
Today I'm in the mood to share my absolutely unforgettable experience, 2 nights that I've been dreaming of since I was 13, the show that everyone must see and if they don't - they just miss out the time of their lives, absolutely amazing LIVE voice and 100% stunning view - it's all about Kylie Minogue's concert, and in my case, it's Aphrodite Live in NYC!
So, I booked the tickets the day they went on sale and could not wait another 3.5 months until the show! The NYC shows were scheduled for May 2nd and May 3rd, but by the time I git my plane ticket back and couldn't change it anymore, they added one more date - May 4th, which is my B'Day... Of course it wasn't the happiest day for me, but it was for many other people who got to see her that night as well! :)

First night I got there a little after 3p.m. and the line was already forming! (the show starts at 8p.m.!) But the next night I got there at 1.30p.m. and the line was almost as long as the previous night and most of the people were there from 6a.m.! My friends told me, the next day the same happened and lines were as long from the morning!
As I was lucky enough to actually meet Kylie the first night, so I went back to the line at about 4p.m. which cost me the front row... I was in like 5th or smth - but it did not spoil the show! The show was not completely sold out, but then I have no idea how would it be possible to fit any more people in the ballroom, because they actually were standing at the end of the whole building by the doors, where you could see nothing!! :O
The second night I decided to come earlier to experience the front row feelings - and I did it! Well, almost - it was the 2nd row, but in between people in the front - so it felt like 1st! :)) And it was unbelievable!!! Especially when Kylie would come closer to us - it was a complete Kylie-gasm and total dream-come-true!
I've been waiting for this 11 years and it was worth every single second - I cannot wait to experience something like that again!
And here's my view in pictures! :) Enjoy!!!

P.S. All the pictures belong to me.

Novak Djokovic - Australian Open 2012 Champion!

Please welcome Australian Open 2012 Champion, Novak Djokovic!
Just moments ago, he defended his last year's title by beating Rafael Nadal in 4 sets in the final: 5:7 6:4 6:2 6:7 7:5 and won his 5th Grand Slam title!
I did not take a side, but only a guess on who was going to win, and my guess was Novak Djokovic in 5 sets - I am good! :D
I really wish it actually was a final between Roger and Novak, but as it didn't happen (#GoRoger!!) for some reason I didn't even doubt Nole's victory at Australian Open 2012.

Let's revise his way to the trophy this year:
Rd.1 N Djokovic bt P Lorenzi 6:2 6:0 6:0
Rd.2 N Djokovic bt S Giraldo 6:3 6:2 6:1
Rd.3 N Djokovic bt N Mahut 6:0 6:1 6:1
Rd.4 N Djokovic bt L Hewitt 6:1 6:3 4:6 6:3
QF N Djokovic bt David Ferrer 6:4 7:6 6:1
SF N Djokovic bt Andy Murray 6:3 3:6 6:7 6:1 7:5

^ And some lovely parodies from Djoko ;) ^ he can be very funny, this Djoker!

Once again, Congratulations!
