    Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Not only a place of memory, but also an open-air circus. At 8 hectares (20 acres), the octagonal Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. It is situated between the Tuileries and the Champs-Elysées. What is now a place for taking pictures with the Eiffel Tower on the horizon, as well as a reforming place for all sorts of street artists, is actually a place of great heritage.

    Pioneer Plaza

    When you visit Texas, in particular Dallas, this is one of those iconic places to see. Pioneer Plaza is the home of 40 bronze statues depicting a cattle drive from the 1800s. It was designed by a native Texan, Robert Summers and each sculpture has such detail that the only way to see it is go ahead and jump on them! Just Kidding :D

    Tuileries Garden

    One of the best things Paris can offer. Oh, those gardens! I keep on coming back. The pure beauty of Paris. Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden and then the Pyramids of Louvre - nothing can beat this experience! Created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!

    Mancunian Monuments: The City's Permanent Residents

    It was Banksy who said, "If you want someone to be ignored, then build a life-sized bronze statue of them and stick it in the middle of town." I hope to prove him wrong with this article on the statues and street art of Manchester.

    Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Situated at the northern end of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s Independence Square received global media attention in 2004 as the focal point of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Orange-clad demonstrators gathered in the Independence Square in Kiev during November, 2004. On some days, the number of protesters in the center of Kiev reached hundreds of thousands (one million by some estimates). Today, things have calmed down a little and the tented city that sprung up overnight has long gone. Independence Square, however, is still the city’s most popular spot for meetings, late night drinking and people watching.
