Moon light mist over Yucca Valley - High desert 3000' / 1000 meters altitude completed by a weird and very, very unusual, unnatural shadow cast of an aircraft vapor trail...The shadow is cast like the light source (the moon) was in front of the chemical vapor trail (from my point of view), not behind it...

A picture really worth a thousand words... My new  Google+ profile layout with the stupid "floating bubble" crop imposed by Google...

A pure little gem on  Los Angeles streets...1955 Messerschmitt KR200...and a prety expensive gem... It will cost more than a diamond...somewhere between 20.000 and 200.000$

If you never seen one in real life you will be shocked by how small this European micro car is...just a little bigger than a pedal car.

I did not followed by now how many  times Google screwed up, but for me the new layout of the profile page is really a big ugly mess, the whole profile page messed up by an unfortunate graphic design decision. I'm not talking about the so necessary  updates, but about that stupid idea of cropping users profile pictures in a round shape... really ??  The little round profile picture looks awful, out of place, one unfinished sketch after an uninspired idea. Really, that's the message ?...Just because we use circles of friends we have to  present ourselves with a  faces cropped in a bubble floating over the cover photo ? It looks like Google "graphic designers" (what they were smoking ?) looked to much at the old paintings and photos...or maybe they did not care...so they  decided that is a good idea to make users  faces look like printed helium  filled balloons. Seriously , that design is beyond bad taste, and unfortunately  there is no way around the round shape [sic],  really... someone need a reality check, and they need it  fast... mandatory "bubble face" look is ridiculous, it sucks and has to be scrapped out. Just look at my profile page to see how ridiculous and Frankenstein-ish a round crop can look...Users need options, not mandatory arbitrary  templates.   Options guys, options...

Bad, blend food, had to toss the shaworma after 2 bites,the wrap was to chewey, probably old, the filler was to dry and with some suspect bitter taste and aftertaste. The place is expensive to. Avoid.

Mixed feelings, after a fully remodelling, renovation process, finished few years ago today's museum is a semi interactive natural history museum where science meets Disney Land. Nice dioramas but they dropped the ball with a color/hue changing lights system that brings a psychedelic 70's disco appeal thru the whole section. From pitch dark to magentas, cyan greens and yellow in less than a minute, all in a harsh, unnatural spot light. And another mistake is the lack of natural light. An unfortunate theme park placed in to a science museum. Most of the displays, screens and so we're not functional, the gift shop was mediocre, filled with Chinese generic imported trinkets. Bad: unfortunatelly the museum charge 10 lei (some 2.5 $, in 2016) per person to take pictures inside. A bad management decision in today's open society and world. They could get more notorious online if they would not discouraged the free publicity given by the people taking photos. Overall a nice (just) place to visit in a rainy day in Romania's capital, but as a naturally history museum I would not recomand it unless you are looking for some specific specimens, as I did with their most precious possesion, the Deinotherium skeleton, one of the best in the world.
