Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione has somehow managed to make an abandoned psychiatric hospital in Parma, Italy even creepier with his paintings of shadows.
The way Baglione’s ‘shadows’ creep out from disused wheelchairs and lurk ominously on the walls makes it easy to imagine that they belonged to the tortured souls that used to inhabit the place.
The work is part of Baglione’s ‘1000 Shadows’ project, where he paints silhouettes on floors and walls.

Night walk through the Amazon rain forest.
The night is dark and full of spiders.
And Bullet ants. Ants who’s bite feels like you have been shot by a bullet. They were like…everywhere. I thought they were only in Australia.
Fun fact: We only saw like…%2 of the spiders in arms reach. Some of them banana spiders, or better known as Brazilian wandering spiders aka the terror of the produce isle. Also all those leaves are the size of your head if your looking for a size comparison.
Fun fact#2: I Paid money to be surrounded by giant poisonous nightmare spiders.
All in all, it was money well spent and I would do it again in a heart beat.
I took a sky train from my home town of NJ USA to visit my aunt (and the rainforest) in the town of Ecuador. As you can see at the top, I am ecstatic (or crazy eyed from lack of sleep) that I am currently holding what I assume is 16,000 bells worth of bugs. At night I encountered a tailless scorpion who had no stinger so bell worth was unknown.
I tried to sell them to the local Llama, who politely informed me that not all lamas work at recycling centers or modify furniture and to assume so is short sighted if not a tad raciest. This lama was actually a landscaper (no seriously, they “hired” this lama to maintain the grass of an empty lot in my Aunts community).
We encountered some Local villager neighbors on our way to the Local tailor shop though in the Town of Ecuador they call it Otavalo (also known as the Indian Market). I found a great shirt and wore it out! It was also cold being that I was 2 miles above sea lvl.
The local fruit is Bananas, but they also grow mangos, pears, lemons, and many others.
You can see from the view from my lodge the river was also much bigger and the local mayor kinda went crazy planting trees. My fish was caught from the river and was delicious.
My daughter wanted to dress up her hamster in dolly clothes, I told her that wasn’t really going to work…but if we cut holes in a box and make some of those seaside type pictures you stick your head through, only hamster sized, perhaps we could make him look like he dressed up!
