In my previous post I mentioned Art Nouveau. It is a French term meaning "new art" and is characterized by organic and plant motifs as well as other highly stylized forms. The organic forms often took the form of sudden violent curves which were often referenced by the term "whiplash." It's important to design history because It was popular in book production and poster printing, although it was used by artists for a variety of other types of work including advertisements, magazines, labels, typography, and even architecture. The typography was so heavily ornate that it was not desirable for text faces but great for display work. Notable artists/designers were Victor Horta, Gustav Klimt and Henry van de Velde.
American GIs mess around with their makeshift tank made out of French, American, and German tank parts, October 25th, 1944. According to the photographs orignal caption on its negative, it was used to bust through hedgerows and scout. Before I get to the informative caption I'd like to discuss why I event been posting for 6 days and as often. The true reason is that Instagram just isn't fun for me anymore, I've been doing the same exact thing for 2 years and it just doesn't give me the same excitement I got a year ago. I don't know what to do and it's really making me sad honestly. If any of you have ever had a period of this in your life and got out of it please tell me in the comments so I can hopefully follow in your foot steps. Thanks guys, I love you all! Now; back to the caption. On their makeshift tank you can see the German MG15 which was used in both WW1 and WW2 for the Germans. The MG15 was used by the Germans in WW2 as a robust and cheap machine gun usually fitted on their aircraft. It had a duel drum magazine with each holding 50 rounds. Even though it was fairly obsolete it was still a reliable weapon and effevtive nevertheless. It's production was ceased after the war. (Colorized by me)
Sümela Manastırı'nın Bizans İmparatoru I. Theodosius zamanında (375–395) Atina'dan gelen Barnabas ve Sophronios isimli iki rahip tarafından kurulduğu düşünülür. Sümela, manastır işlevini 1923 yılına kadar sürdürdü.
Yapı esas olarak ana kaya kilisesi, birkaç şapel, mutfak, öğrenci odaları, misafirhane, kütüphane ile kutsal ayazmadan oluşur. Bu yapılar topluluğu oldukça geniş bir alan üzerine yayılır. Manastırın girişinde su getirdiği anlaşılan büyük su kemeri yamaca yaslanmış durumdadır. Çok gözlü olan bu kemerin bugün büyük bir bölümü yıkılmıştır. Avlunun etrafındaki binalar içindeki dolaplar, hücreler, ocaklarda Türk sanatının etkileri de görülür.
Manastırın ana ünitesini meydana getiren kaya kilisesinin ve ona bitişik şapelin iç ve dış duvarlarını donatan freskler 18. yüzyılın başlarına tarihlenir. Bu fresklerde üç ayrı devirde yapılan üç tabaka görülebilir.
