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!

Shining All Over The Guggenheim Museum at Bilbao

This one is from my third spanish tour, dates March 2012.
Bilbao is a beautiful city, and I tell you THIS BUILDING IS SHINING NATURALLY!
still I wanted to add my small contribution. to show I could make it shine without spending those billions of  $$$
It is not easy to take a good photo of this building. it has so many angles and shapes,and almost like the Taj Mahal, it worth looking both during sunset and during sunrise
about the art: art (except this blog) is boring, but inside Richard Serra's  sculptors, you can shout and scream, and listen to the amazing acoustic character of each item
