Details Around The World

Moscow, Russia

I don’t notice much. I’m a pretty distracted person. I wouldn’t describe myself as observant. But I surely enjoy details when I pay attention, especially when it comes to art. But we can find detail in nature, architecture, engineering and even human organs. Below I’ve gathered a few detailed things from across my travels. Enjoy!

A lot of details in this Mexican restaurant in Portland, Oregon.

Amazing plants found in India.

I love the details in these sister plants in India.

  1. Each photos were wonderful.


  2. Truly, a wealth of detail. I can’t say that I have one favorite, but the Indian clothing is really subtle. And the modern toilet gets full marks for creativity. 🙂


    1. Thanks Tom! The modern toilet is inside the Hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, which if you google, you’ll see even more intense creativity.

  4. Thanks! 🙂
    I definitely recommend that museum if you ever get a chance to go, one of the coolest I’ve ever been to. Although, I may say the same thing about several museums.
    I love museums of all kinds (art, science, aviation, space, music, natural history, etc).
