Panoramas.dk- Roger Waters The Wall - Mount Everest 60 years Anniversary - Photo Panoramiques

10 years ago at the 50 year anniversary for the first who reached the top of Everest, I published the only existing 360 panorama from the top of Mount Everest. May 29 1953 The top of Mount Everest was reached for the first time by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. On May 24, 1989 the Australian photographer and mountaineer Roderick Mackenzie reached the summit. He was no 271 since 1953. The panorama he made is still the only 360 degree panorama made from the summit. During the 10 years it has been seen by more than 7.000.000 people, and it has until very recently been one of the top 5 in Google when searching for Mount Everest.

Creativity on the Run: 18 Apps that Support the Creative Process "The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind is a faithful servant.

Somewhere along the way, we simply forgot to honor this innate gift and how to access its power.

Acropole d'Athènes The Propylaia, famous already in antiquity for its brilliant coffered ceilings and the unique design of the monumental entrance to the sanctuary of Athena, was a work of the architect Mnesikles (437-432 B.C.). It consists of a central building with two six-columned Doric porticoes east and west and two Ionic colonnades in the interior, framed at the north and south by two wings with porches in the Doric order. The outbreak of the Peloponnesian War meant that the final work on the surfaces of the monument was never completed. The destruction of most of the superstructure of the central building during the years 1640-1830 , after the explosion of gunpowder that was stored in the monument by the Turks, has led to a gradual loss of authentic building material, so that until now no more than one fifth of it had been recognised.
