    This has absolutely nothing to do with Copens, Daihatsus, or even cars, but I like it, and it's my site, so I can post whatever I like! :p

    This is a picture of a town called Vercorin in Switzerland. Click on the picture to see the full size version and you'll notice some rings on the picture. No, someone hasn't drawn over the photograph, this is exactly what it looks like in real life.

    This is an art installation by Felice Varini called "Cercle et suite d'├ęclats". The circles are stuck onto the buildings so if you stand in exactly the right place in the town this is what you see.

    You can see some close-up pictures of the buildings here to see exactly how it's done.

    Now I reckon that's very clever stuff!

    OK, that's the cultural intermission over, now back to Copens......

    It is clever - but it looks as though some giant has been using the town as a placemat for his coffee mug!

    You nailed it! Someone built it as per plans, rings and all, now they are trying to cover their error by claiming it is deliberate.

    Hang on, it is Swiss....only UK builders would do that :eek:

    I like crop circles. There have been some really beautiful ones.

    Perhaps I'm just weird? :rolleyes:
