Shoot Fourteen - MIT at Night III

Copenhagen, not so easy, eh? Heard from Mike Di, Jim, Milt, Peyton, Elaine, Doris, Carol, Michelle, and Tony. also, long time follower but first-time responded, Lisa Daria!

"MIT Stairwell"

Finishing up Shoot Fourteen with this slightly lit stairwell next to the Stata Center. Not sure why I took this in the first place - perhaps, it was the angle I had or the interesting glow from that end of the building. I'm not even sure what the function of this structure was - dorm? library? labs?

Where in the World?

Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting? 

the largest city in the country

it is said to be one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

It is not just the financial center of its country, but also a major economic center of the world.

The city is famous for the Royal Museum. This marvelous museum was built in the year 1910 and is adorned with brilliant statues of people and various events of the city and houses the largest totem pole in the world. This totem pole is over 100 years old.

the eight islands of the city together have about 568 acres of parkland. Of the parklands in this city, the one that stands out is Watt’s Island as only pedestrians are allowed on the streets of this island.

You may also visit the Casa Loma. A picture of European elegance and charm, the Casa Loma was home to financier Sir Henry Pellatt. This castle is a veritable maze, with its secret passages, towers, stables, and even a tunnel measuring 800ft. The castle has a beautiful 5-acre garden, which is open to the public from May to October.

the residents of this city not only love their pets, but also take them very seriously. Called PawsWayPet Discovery Center is dedicated only to dogs and cats. This center is one of a kind. The Center strives to promote pet-keeping in the city, while also making people aware of their duties as a responsible pet-owner. PawsWay even has a coffee shop inside its complex where the owners and their pets can eat and drink together.

What about this: city even promotes a major league baseball team and it is NOT in the U. S.
