shining is conceptual social photography blog that was born during a family trip to rome by my brother and i (he is the original shiner).
as a child i had to go to places like notre dame, the eifel tower and the statue of liberty with my parents, and to watch and hear them and all the other people around us being amazed from those huge blocks of stone that were built to show the power of some ego maniac who wanted people to remeber him.
as a consequence today i find no pleasure of visiting these kind of places, and often even feel sick from humanity when i see that those assholes who built those buildings got exactly what they wanted.
I feel that shining brought back for me the joy of being a tourist. on this trip to rome when my brother and i hanged around and took those photos we had a chance to act as normal tourists but to be very special at the same time.
i would like to see shining photos from famous monuments and buildings around the world, i would be happy to recieve pictures and post them here.
go and join the tourists!

How to join the community or the rules of shining

After many questions from people if they can do it with a fake penis or a dildo or all kinds of other accesories, i decided to post here the rules of shining:
1) shining must be kept natural and not sexual, therefore no fake penis or any other accessory.
2) girls who want to take part are more than welcome, but since no accessory is allowed they will have to show something else. breasts or vagina, you have your options.

and again i would like to stress out the point that shining is not sexual, its funny and its a statement of freedom
Shine On!

The first Shining photo from israel. Beit She'arim national Park

I am honored and delighted to post here a photo i got from Israel, this guy will get the title "the original Shiner of Judah".
i would also like to add that the shiner of Judah is not only a member of the shining community but also one of the best drummers in israel and he is a part of one of the best bands that came out of israel the last few years.

Soviet War Memorial (Treptower Park)

It was rainy and cold, but we just had to show our respect and shine over this great monument, dedicated to those soviet soldiers who fought the nazis and never had a chance to rape and pillage like their comrades who got to enjoy the fruits of victory
