Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo/ Texas)

Cadillac Ranch (Amarillo/ Texas)

Cadillac Ranch is a public art installation involving 10 vintage Cadillacs. It was created in 1974 by members of the art group Ant Farm.
Since its beginning the car colours have gone through multiple evolutions. White for a TV commercial, then pink because of a founding member's wife's birthday, and again all 10 cars were painted flat black to mark the passing of Ant Farm artist Doug Michels. In 2012 they were painted rainbow colors to commemorate gay pride day. However most of the time you'll find the cars covered in graffiti.

Floating Islands in a Lake (Lake Titicaca/ Peru & Bolivia)

Floating Islands in a Lake (Lake Titicaca/ Peru & Bolivia)

The Uros are pre-Incan people who live on self made floating islands in Lake Titicaca on the border of Peru and Bolivia.
The purpose of the island settlements was originally defensive, so if a threat arose they could be moved. Nowadays most of their people live on the mainland but a few hundred still live on and maintain the islands.
Dried totora reeds, which grow in the lake, are used to construct reed boats as well as the islands themselves. The reeds at the bottoms of the islands rot away fairly quickly, so new reeds are added to the top about every three months.
