Pic of the day - The Floating Temple

How to Lift a Seven Million Pound, 112 year old Building? Engineers first gutted the damaged interior and then supported the exterior walls with special scaffolding as they dug down to create space for a two story basement, so in actuality the building hasn’t even moved. The entire structure is now on stilts some 40 feet in the air and from some angles appears to be floating above ground. The name of the building is Provo Tabernacle and it is located at Utah, USA.

Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat

12 years ago, Japanese photographer, Miyoko Ihara started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misao. One day, Iharas grandmother found an odd-eyed kitten in the shed… She named the cat Fukumaru, and since then the two have been inseparable. This touching and beautiful photos captures the everyday life of elderly Misao and her steadfast feline companion, following them as together they work in the fields, admire spring blossoms, or nap in the sun. Both friends are hard of hearing, so it is endearing to witness the strength of their connection, enacted through sight and physical presence.

“Under the sun, everyday is a good day. Another good day, Fukumaru”, Misao.

“We’ll never be apart!”, says Misao to Fukumaru. Both of them live in a tiny world, with dignity, with mutual love. Still today, under the blue sky, Misao and Fukumaro work in the fields and in these natural surroundings, where they shine like the stars.” <3
