Blue Monday with Smiling Sally


Hi, I'm joining Sally's Blue Monday at Smiling Sally today. It's my first time, I hope you find it interesting! These are some amazing blues that I came across in my tumblr and that I blogged about this week.

phone booth aquarium created by
Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino
An aquarium repurposed from a phone booth for the Lyon Light Festival in 2007. Old phone booths have been recycled into all sorts of things, from libraries to grocery stores to toilets and more. More non-blue photos of fascinating new uses for old payphones at  Recycling: repurposed English red phone booths ~ liberal sprinkles

Did you spot the guy?? These incredible photos are the creations of Chinese artist Liu Bolin, who has perfected the art of becoming an invisible man by blending into the background at locations he choses. He has two assistants paint his body camouflage. You can see more photos of Liu Bolin's disappearing act and other artists who have done similar work at my post Invisible Man: Liu Bolin ~ liberal sprinkles

Oh, my gosh, Grace! Thank you so much for showing us all of those. I wouldn't have seen them otherwise. The photos are all beautiful and intriguing, but the painting of the towers really spoke to my heart.
