Umbrella – Gerwin Hoogendorn

An umbrella or parasol (also called a brolly, rainshade, sunshade, gamp or bumbershoot) is a canopy designed to protect against rain or sunlight. The term parasol usually refers to an item designed to protect from the sun; umbrella refers to a device more suited to protect from rain. Often the difference is the material; some parasols are not waterproof. Parasols are often meant to be fixed to one point and often used with patio tables or other outdoor furniture. Umbrellas are almost exclusively hand-held portable devices; however, parasols can also be hand-held.
The word umbrella comes from the Latin word umbra, meaning shade or shadow (the Latin word, in turn, derives from the Ancient Greek ómbros (όμβρος)) Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, used often in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and Kenya. Bumbershoot is a fanciful Americanism from the late 19th century. Click HERE! to continue reading about umbrella’s

Astronomical observatory [Jantar Mantar]

Small Sundail for Wintertime Jantar Mantar 1728

Image via Wikipedia

Just as I was reading in my local NATGEO Magazine about an artist named Gabriel Orozco and his house at the sea [also has a function of astronomical observatory built on the model of the 300 years old monument in Delhi, Indija [“The Jantar Mantar”] It says Here that “Jantar Mantar” consists of fourteen geometric devices used for measuring time, forecasting weather changes, predicting behaviour of planets and finding extraterrestrial altitude.

There are great 3D models you can see here and i’m sure that you have conluded by now that this one goes as one of the 7 Wonders of India [Just for the record i think that on all those stone structures should be somewhere engraved somewhat of numbers or letters for pointing]


Now I want to conclude my idea with the picture of the Gabriel Orozco’s house, so here I go. And this is the best part of the post to me because you have a look at the sea, a small house [three rooms with a citchen] BUT with a pool on top… What about that. Great one isn’t it??

Cars Cars Cars [Oldtimer Cars!]

i like cars bmw, chevrolet, mercedes, and definetly old citroen cars and peugeot and renault too, and yes i should never forget the ford cars. And what about fiat? Yes, that too [fiat 500]

The feeling when you are sitting in that car and go for a ride. Imagine next, it should be a cabrio definetly. A sport car from 1950 or ever before world war 2 that sounds great too.

Just founded out that Mercedes is celebrating 125 years in auto industry this year 2011. Here’s what the chairman of the board said:

Dr Dieter Zetsche, chairman of the board of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars: “The invention of Daimler and Benz changed the world for the better – and it will continue to do so.

I think there is a good chance of finding an oldtimer in Frankfurt so let’s take a look

And yes… I keep on forgeting [nevermind that] but The Oldtimer Meeting in Ozalj is the the start point of every oldtimer season here in Croatia for the last couple of years. Take a look at photos I took from this year. [Oldschool Desant Ozalj]
