In many major cities excitingly light up during the holiday season, and the Hungarian capital of Budapest is no different. In every winter season, this city is covered in festive holiday decorations, but one of the most interesting events is the city’s trams, which are amazingly covered in 30,000 bright blinking LED lights. Perhaps the lights themselves might be of no specific interest but it’s what photographers can do with them that are really cool. With a long exposure photograph, these trams transform into ethereal cosmic vessels or time-travelling public transportation vehicles, giving photographers spending their holidays in Budapest a fun opportunity to snap some cool photographs.

Now you can have a look inside the most world's most expensive restaurant: Levitating food, light shows and waitresses dressed as air stewardesses only for £1,250 per head. The innocuous white door set in an entirely white building on the island of Ibiza. It’s really magic inside that justifies but setting hardly seems for the most expensive restaurant in the world. This is a new restaurant from two-Michelin star Spanish chef Paco Roncero Spain’s version of experimental chef Heston Blumenthal. Its food is highly enjoyable just like an immersive theatre experience. The owners stand by the charge, and the cost of setting up the restaurant, the quality of the food and the 27 staff for a dozen diners explains the price.
Furthermore the eatery which seats just twelve people at a time is part of the brand new Hard Rock Hotel, which celebrated its grand opening just done with live performances at its open-air, beachside concert space from disco king Nile Rodgers and garage stars Masters at Work. They claim their taste at Sublimotion will be a work of theatre appealing to everybody of our senses and transporting us to another world. Though few may shudder at the price tag, celebrities and wealthy holidaymakers are already queuing up for bookings. In a tiny room with more than a few artfully-placed boxes and giant nitrogen tank a key ingredient in many of Roncero’s dishes.
In a flash of opaque window becomes transparent, giving a vivid glimpse of the 27 staff working in the kitchen to make the 20-course meal that is served up over a two-and-a-half hour “performance” in the restaurant. A metal lift with the support of screens, lights and simulators gives the impression of plunging down the below ground as music blares all around. The feelings are just like a Disneyland ride, guests giggling nervously, wondering what on earth comes next. A all white with a white table and padded white chairs, with names are beamed onto the table as place settings. Then 2 waitresses are dressed as air stewardesses, there is a compere who will introduce the dishes and light and laser effects create different worlds to accompany each separate dish.
Roncero wants the precise tricks of the trade to remain a secret, but needless to say, the white surfaces of the room don’t stay white for long as different settings and videos are beamed onto them, creating a backdrop for the plates and other unusual crockery put in front of visitor. Food is served with a flourish and makes own Bloody Mary cocktails using test tubes presented to us in a giant book. The sweet dessert served up on a spinning, levitating plate, which eventually slows down enough to allow eating it. It is just like a food presentation and all wispy nitrogen clouds and bizarre concoctions that mean you don’t know what you’re eating until it is in your mouth, then Roncero to make an appearance dressed as Willy Wonka, the deranged chocolate producer in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Roncero explains he always wanted to explore diners’ surroundings and complete the meal experience appealing to every one of our senses. The temperature in the room, the humidity and even the smells can be altered to suit each dish, along with the musical accessory. The restaurant is completely booked by millionaire racers from the Gumball Rally, which has just ended its 3,000-mile odyssey across the globe from Miami, via New York, Edinburgh, London, Paris and Barcelona. Is it worth the £1,250 price tag? Spend 10 minutes talking to Roncero and you will say yes. His desire and explanations about the food and how it is prepared are inspirational. He truly is Spain’s Heston Blumenthal.

Dietmar Voorworld is skillful artist who finds in nature and turns them into memorable pieces of land art by rocks, pebbles and leafs. When he was on Greece visit, he starts playing with the sand and pebbles on one of its beaches and felt an artistic inclination to create something special art.
Dietmar Voorworld first mosaic arose out of that experience and he sustained down this path, seeing it more as a playful hobby than a full-time career. He started to snapshot of his works, and after finding a resilient connection to the beauty of Scottish landscapes, he eventually decided to settle down in northern Scotland, creating spectacular land art works along its coasts. He says; my installations blend perfectly into the landscape and often appear to have been there forever. Harmony is really imperative to me, as well as handling the gifts of nature with due respect.
I can’t really sure the request as to why I make art in nature. I only know that I feel very decent with it. Despite all the experiments involved in working with nature, I continue venturing out with flawless enthusiasm. I’m simply following the call of my soul. So whether I like it or not, nature is the true and never-ending source of my inspiration, my grandest stage. Here I feel free and at home. To work with her, and in her, is a fabulous gift. In a word, my artistic work has something to do with peace. Peace with nature, with the weather and stones, the light and the enigmatic ocean. Peace with myself.
