What will you tell him

Here is a young  boy,  holding his father’s hand and looking at the memorial for the Berlin Terror Attach victims days before Christmas.

Christmas markets in Germany, like in any other country, is for festivity, happiness, share a laugh, share a story, talk about beautiful future. Residents and visitors irrespective of cast, religion, ethnicity, country they come form are welcome to join the festivity. It is about PEACE.

Why would someone drive a truck into this place and hurt people ? What were they trying to achieve ?

What would the father tell his son ?

The face of the buildings changes, it is not just the light which played with its face …and the magic begins ..

 

A Bridge

A BrdgeThe best engineer a few decades ago was someone who could create the most beautiful beam or structure; today it’s to do a structure you cannot see or understand how it’s done. It disappears and you can talk only about color, symbols, and light. It’s an aesthetic of miracle. – Jean Nouvel

Jet School Bus

When an adrenaline-junkie Paul Stender got hold of a Phantom F4 jet engine, what does he do ? He fits it into a school bus !! Yes, that is what he did. In full throttle the bus hits 320 miles per hour and the driver could feel few G’s.

These were taken during their show in Al Ain Aerobatic Show 2013.
