        FANTASTIC BEAUTIFUL SURREAL PLACES
 
 
The below is a little collection of beautiful surreal places which I consider to be amazing and hope that they exist in the real world. Just think how incredibly beautiful photos would be in these places and how unique an experience would it be to simply be there. It is a real shame that these kind of places can only exist in our imagination – saying that, with the right resources, will and a lot of time, some of these naturescapes can  become real!

Rare footage of a cricket match between some of the most famous Hindi film actors of the Sixties is doing the rounds on social media and it's nothing short of pure gold.

The black and white video, re-packaged to the IPL theme, shows a packed cricket ground full of spectators watching Team Raj Kapoor playing Team Dilip Kumar. The players on the field include Shashi Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Johnny Walker, Jeevan, Mehmood, Shubha Khote, IS Johar and many others - all fielding, batting and bowling against one another.

Pitch action includes the actors-turned-players fooling around, chasing each other down the field, downing cold drinks and eating ice cream while enjoying the match. According to the description of the video on Facebook, the match was played to collect funds for drought relief in Maharashtra - possibly in 1962 at Shivaji Park.



              The picture that proves why iconic photograph of workers eating their lunch on Rockefeller beam was all a publicity stunt
        Lunch Atop A Skyscraper: The Story Behind The 1932 Photo | 100 Photos | TIME
                      https://youtube.com/embed/7QCYDzsQ_yM?rel=0 
It is one of the most iconic photographs of all time but as it celebrates its 80th anniversary it has emerged that ‘Lunch atop a Skyscraper’ may not have been as impromptu as Wpreviously thought.
Archivists say the shot showing 11 construction workers enjoying their break on a suspended beam, high above the streets of Manhattan, was in fact a publicity stunt.
Although the models were real workers, the moment was staged by the Rockefeller Center to promote their new skyscraper 80 years ago today.
The claim is supported by a second - and rarely seen  - image from the same organised shoot which shows the crew in a different pose lying down on the girder.
Staged: The iconic photograph of workers enjoying their break whilst perched on a beam 69 floors up was, in fact, just a publicity stunt

Taken on September 20, 1932 it was intended to look like a natural break during the construction of theRCA Building (later renamed the GE Building in 1986), which forms part of the Rockefeller Center.
The image of the 11 workers perched on a beam 69 floors above Manhattan eating lunch, sharing banter and lighting cigarettes is one of the world’s most reproduced.
The image was a publicity effort by the Rockefeller Center. It seems pretty clear they were real workers,but the event was organised with a number of photographers.’ Ken Johnston, chief historian for Corbis Imageswhich owns the rights to the photo, told the Independent.
He added that it is Corbis Images’ biggest selling historical image and tops other iconic historical photographs in the Corbis catalogue, including those of Albert Einstein and Martin Luther King.
The original negative of the photograph is stored in a temperature-controlled facility under Pennsylvania’s Iron MountainJohnston described the world famous black and white photograph as 'a piece of American history.'
'The other one': It is this image, of  four construction workers take a nap on the same beam shot on the same day which, according to archives, prove it was all just a set-up

The image first appeared in the New York Herald Tribune a few weeks after it was taken
 on October 2, 1932.
Although the photo it is commonly credited to photographer Charles C Ebbets, information
 which was uncovered by a private investigation firm in 2003, Corbis say that after it emerged
that there were multiple photographers at the shoot, they are no longer certain Mr Ebbets
 took it. The iconic image has frequently been wrongly attibuted to Lewis Hine, who was
 famous for documenting the rise of the Empire State Building in 1931.

The Rock: The construction of the 14 Rockefeller Center towers was the largest private building project undertaken in modern times
As well as the photographer, the names of the construction workers also remain a mystery. Corbis attempted to track them down 12 years ago but were not able to establish conclusive identities for any of them.
However, over the years family members have come forward to identify the men and it's been claimed that the majority of the workers are Irish immigrants.
The man sitting fourth from the right is allegedly Francis Michael Rafferty with his lifelong best friend, Stretch Donahue, sitting to his right.
Recently arrived in the city, the Irish natives came to Manhattan seeking employment at a grim economic time. 
Indeed, the photo was taken while the city was in the depths of the Great Depression when one in four New Yorkers were unemployed. Nevertheless, huge-scale construction projects begun during the boom years of the 1920s were nearing completion.

 Commentators have suggested that during the economic depression men were willing for to take on any work regardless of safety issues. Seemingly echoing this, one of the most striking points about the photograph is the mens' lack of safety harnesses despite the 840 feet drop beneath them.
 With safety issues in place, the photograph has been re-created multiple times with copycat snaps taken all over the world from a group of workers 800ft above the streets of London to a less risky cartoon version on U.S. show The Simpsons. one of the most striking points about the photograph is the mens' lack of safety harnesses despite the 840 feet drop beneath them.
 The 80-year-old photograph is also the subject of a new film titled Men At Lunch, which was shown at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month and puts forward evidence that the some of workers hail from the small Irish town of Shanaglish
When it began, the construction of the 14 Rockefeller Center towers was the largest private building project undertaken in modern times.
 The building began in May 1930 and took nine years to complete.‘Lunch atop a Skyscraper’ was taken during the final few months of construction
 In the 60s and 70s a new complex was built with four new towers, one of which houses News Corporation and Fox News.
 The building where ‘Lunch atop a Skyscraper’ was taken is the centrepiece of the Rockefeller Center complex
The RCA, now renamed the GE Building after the General Electric acquisition, has 70 floors, including a spectacular observation deck on the roof.
It is home to the headquarters of television company NBC which produces shows such as Saturday Night live and is featured in popular American comedy show 30 Rock, named after the building’s address 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
