Cross over to the other side

Passages allow entering the unknown, but not always they lead to somewhere else. This is the case of Sardegna sacred water wells, built by natives around 3,0000 years ago at protection of water sources. Passages can also split what is aside, like San Marco cape: on one side the always calm Mare Morto (dead sea), on the other side the waves of the open sea. Or passages may indeed lead to the other side, but just to let you enjoy the panorama in between. Click each picture to zoom in.

    Although there are some modern aspects of your pictures, I am intrigued by the ability and craftsmanship of our forefathers to do such amazing things. Thanks for the photos!

    Cheers

      Hi Jim, whatever not aluminium and glass will survive the time. The 10,000 Watt air-compressor from 1902 still works, indeed. Cheers and thanks for commenting.
