Three museums in one in San Francisco’ s Golden Gate Park.
A planetarium, an aquarium, and a natural history museum, all wrapped in one: the California Academy of Sciences, located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, is a great place to learn and enjoy the natural sciences.
The architecture of the new building was designed by Renzo Piano, partly due to a seismic upgrade. Inside the museum there are two giant globes, one housing a rain forest and the other a planetarium. In the basement floor there is an aquarium, and on street level there is a natural history museum. You might be able to spot an albino alligator, a giant sea bass, and a colony of penguins living on site next to a working research facility!
Outside the museum are sculpture works by Maya Lin, and up on the roof is a garden, the so-called “Living Roof” because of its propensity to grow plants for local fauna. The museum itself is one of the best examples of sustainable and environmentally-friendly architecture, earning Platinum LEED status because it can run on little energy.
Visiting the museum is easy — it’s getting the tickets to get in that’s hard!

It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
