macroscopic playground

Combine the view with what wiki says about macroscopic scale and you will understand better my thoughts.

“The macroscopic scale is the length scale on which objects or processes are of a size which is measurable and observable by the naked eye.
When applied to phenomena and abstract objects, the macroscopic scale describes existence in the world as we perceive it, often in contrast to experiences (microscopy) or theories (microphysics, statistical physics) considering objects of geometric lengths smaller than one millimeter. […]
The term may also refer to a "larger view", namely a view only available from a large perspective. A macroscopic position could be considered the "big picture".
The opposite to the macroscopic scale is the microscopic scale: objects smaller than those that can easily be seen by the naked eye and which require a lens or microscope to see them clearly.”

Nice weekend to you all :)

the parisians

“Every city has a sex and age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn’t changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman” – John Berger, English Painter

What’s the conexion with the image? None in particular. I just like the quote. Those of you who have been to Paris might understand it better. Or, on the other hand, maybe it’s just me..
