"Man

"Man … sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present, the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived." ~ James Lachard, writer

Monument

Not sure to whom, though.

I've posted a version of this before. When on a tour bus, one does not always get the choice of angles and composition that might be preferred. This is one of those shots- somewhere between Xian, China, and the Terracotta Soldiers excavation site and museum the bus drove around this under-construction monument. Just before turning right and away, I managed to fire off one shot.

This particular version is a composite. The original sky was empty and sort of a blue-grey-brown. The previous upload of this (http://goo.gl/WDOaAs) used a texture to disguise the plainness of the sky, but this time I thought I'd give it something more interesting from my growing collection of sky shots.

Used in this production were #Lightroom5 , #PhotoshopCC2014 , #TopazDenoise , #TopazDetail and #TopazRestyle .
