Edward mit den Scherenhänden wäre begeistert!

Scherenschnitt Revival: Dieser Typ macht aus den langweiligsten Sehenswürdigkeiten die coolsten Kunstwerke

Freitag, 07. April 2017

Erinnert Ihr Euch noch an den guten alten Scherenschnitt, der in den 80ern und 90ern der Shit überhaupt war?

>>> Wir brauchen mehr Vandalismus: Diese Straßen-Kunstwerke versüßen Euch den Tag

Wenn Ihr jetzt denkt, dass das doch mittlerweile voll out ist, dann habt Ihr Euch mächtig geschnitten, denn der Scherenschnitt feiert dank dem Briten Rich McCor sein wohlverdientes Revival.

>>> Kann man in der Pfeife rauchen: Diese Bongs sind mehr als Lungenkitzler

Allerdings nicht ganz so, wie Ihr das jetzt denkt. Er kombiniert seine Scherenschnitte mit bekannten Sehenswürdigkeiten, die dadurch auch endlich mal wieder cool werden. Beim nächsten Sightseeing wisst Ihr also, was zu tun ist.

Have you ever heard of the word naumachia? Until I got to Rome I hadn’t either, but it’s a word the Romans used to describe simulated naval fights - they were like gladiator battles on a bigger and wetter scale. Sometimes special structures were built and other times lakes were used, but there is evidence that the colosseum was once turned into a gladiatorial water world for a naumachia (the more you say that word, the more addictive it becomes). According to the Roman historian Cassius Dio, a sea fight took place in the amphitheatre in 86 AD. Ships, weapons and thousands of men were brought in and since every effort was made to make a naumachia (I bet you’re saying it out loud now) a colossal event, even sea creatures were shipped in from around the globe - hence why I put an octopus inside the colosseum, because y’know when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Time to hop back on board Royal Princess and head up the coast to the port of Livorno to visit Florence. (Head to @princesscruises to see more images) #comebacknew

Pisa had been occupied by the Nazis in WWII, but in 1944 the US army was advancing. The tower, or as the US soliders referred to it the “Tiltin’ Hilton”, was suspected of being used by the Nazis as a lookout tower, so Staff Sgt. Leon Weckstein was tasked with scouting the Tower to confirm their suspicions. From a nearby olive grove, he peered through his binoculars looking for signs of life; his order was that if saw movement he would call ‘fire’ down the radio and the tower would be demolished in seconds. But just as he studied the landmark, bombs exploded nearby and Weckstein was ordered to retreat. Had he seen anyone in the tower, the famous landmark may not still be standing today. In an interview with the Guardian in 2000 he was asked if he thought the Germans were in the tower: “You know something? I’ve had 50 years to think about it, and I’m pretty sure they were.” (Head to @princesscruises to see more images) #comebacknew

We’ve docked in Barcelona for the day and if you’ve been paying attention you may have picked up on the fact that quite a few of my cut-outs on this trip have had an aquatic/sea theme as an ode to being on a cruise ship for the past nine days. So here in Barcelona it made sense to do a photo with the Torre Agbar, home to the Barcelona water company. This is the last official stop on my cruise with the Princess team, however they’ve kindly let me stay on board so that I can get off in the Azores (somewhere I’ve always wanted to go), so I’ll be sharing a couple of photos from the islands next #comebacknew #PrincessCruises #PassionPassport #TravelAwesome #igTravel #WanderLust #Travel #Holiday #Vacation #Cruise #CruiseLife #InstaCruise #StreetArtLovers #ForcedPerspective #Funny #TravelStoke #Paper #PaperArt #Art #Silhouette #Penguin #Barcelona #Spain #TorreAgbar

On the Royal Princess, the mega cruise ship I’m on, there’s a unique feature that it shares only with its sister ship, called the SeaWalk. It’s a glass bottomed walkaway that extends out over the sea. This view is it from below, but when you’re walking on it and looking down whilst speeding through the waves it’s a bit of a trip. They’ve wisely built a bar next to it so you can sip cocktails and laugh at the other passengers as they walk across it with varying amounts of terror #comebacknew #PrincessCruises #PassionPassport #TravelAwesome #igTravel #WanderLust #Travel #Holiday #Vacation #Cruise #CruiseLife #InstaCruise #StreetArtLovers #ForcedPerspective #Funny #TravelStoke #Paper #PaperArt #Eye #Eyelash

Had the chance to hang out with @asenseofhuber whilst I've been over here. He's the sort of person who knows all the best spots in LA & has a constant flow of ideas for great photographs too. He showed me this awesome street in Hollywood where the palm trees look like twenty foot tall giants looming over you. Soon after taking this we drove over to Randy's Donuts, ran out of gas on the freeway, pushed his car to the side of the road, found a gas station, filled a jerry can & then - hopefully he won't mind me telling you this - somehow managed to pour most of the petrol over our hands and make a total mess of the while thing. Entertainment value was to the max though! Go check out Kyle's page- I think you'll like his photos a lot @DiscoverLA #LostinLA #Hollywood #LA #LosAngeles #Hammock #PalmTree #USInterior #ArtofVisuals #DestinationEarth #NeverStopExploring #PaperArt #Silhouette #TravelStoke #Travel #OpticalIllusion #PassionPassport @Instagram @LosAngeles_City #LosAngeles_City #ForcedPerspective #Cityscape #TravelAwesome
