Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Today I am sharing the rest of the lino prints I
made last week. Once again they are A3 size. This one was part of

For Go Tag Thursday, tape measure, ruler, I made a tag
and was able to use up a sheet of designer paper which
I have had for more than 10 years. I am also linking to Tag Tuesday,

And now we are going back to the gasometer in Oberhausen. In the 100 meters high space you can view the world as normally only astronauts get to see it.
There is a huge 'globe', 20 meters in diameter, onto which pictures of the world
showing various seasons, day and night etc are beamed. The pictures are shown with 58 million pixels, which gives an incredible detail. The video shows how it was made. The text is in German, but it is worth looking at just for the pictures:
There is an arena with seating all round, and you just grab a
huge bean bag, lay back, and watch the world turning:
We then took the lift to the very top of the gasometer and
enjoyed the view outside. For me, the best views were through
the glass walls of the lift taken on the way back down:
All in all, a wonderful experience. More pictures to come tomorrow.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
