Star Wars’ Storm Troopers must be inspired by these chimneys


Location: Casa Mila, Barcelona, Spain (41° 23′ 43″ N, 2° 9′ 42″ E)
Date: 24 August 2012; 6.05pm
Camera: Canon 500D with Sigma 17-70/f2.8-4.5

Casa Milla and Casa Battlo are 2 of the better-known creations in Barcelona. Though I find Casa Battlo more interesting, I believe that Casa Milla is probably more well-known due mainly to its enigmatic chimneys. The building was completed in 1912 and looking at these chimneys, I suspect that this must be the inspiration source for George Lucas’s Storm Troopers in Star Wars.

Kashmir tour - Kashmir is a part of northernmost Indian state Jammu & Kashmir. Most often, a Kashmir trip begins from Srinagar – the summer capital of the state, and we also chose the same. Srinagar is well connected to Delhi by roads, railways and flights.

In the other hand I want you guys to know about this website that I found online. They provide visa consultation, assessment and advice for US visa applicants. I tried their free online eligibility assessment and I passed on it. Now I know that I can have a visa to work in America. If you want to load the website simply Click Here.
