Photographer's Note

In reply to Marianne's invitation... "Good mood day on TE - NO POINTS"

Today, the temperature is around zero, very comfortable. A nice snow falls silently on the ground and it turns into water, sometimes a thin layer of ice, but not very slippery... time to go for a walk.

Not far from home, I saw this Christmas decoration still remaining and giving beautiful colour reflections.
And I thought it would be good to present it here, for the good mood day on TE.

In addition, because I had a strange idea... but not too strange, because I'm not the first person to have this idea.

Want to know what is it?
I thought the houses in areas subject to earthquakes should be spherical! Yes, spherical houses, made of light material, but solid at the same time (am I asking too much?).
So if the earth shakes, the sphere will roll, not fall in pieces!
And no skyscrapers, please!

Hello architects, engineers! Please, think about it or something else! We are in the dark and we need lights!

Maybe it is time to elaborate a different study for the reconstruction of Haiti...
May we can find some light for this kind of situation!

Just out of curiosity, I searched the internet and found this:

But my idea is spherical houses on the ground, not on the trees.

I hope this will make you smile, at least :-)
