Vide – Ohs: Headis??? Soccer Ball Ping Pong

OK, they got me on this one. I had never heard of this “sport,” but apparently there are enthusiasts around the globe. Headis was founded in 2006 as a combination of table tennis and soccer. The name is derived from a combination of head plus tennis, i.e. Headis. Read more about it HERE!

The video below is less than a minute long, but it will provide viewers with a sense and “thrill” of the game.

Another group from Germany has produced a Headis video with the ten best plays of the …AHEM… Headis World Championship 2015 in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Who knew? The Internet is really something!

Photography: My Shot – The Alhambra from the Hill of the Sun

The Alhambra palace and fortress in Granada, Spain is one of those locations that is so monumentally beautiful and interesting that it defies description. Not only is the ancient architecture magnificent, the castle grounds and gardens are also magnificent.

The photograph below was captured looking back at the Alhambra from the Generalife gardens located on the Cerro del Sol (Hill of the Sun). We toured the facility for three hours or more and there remains more I would like to have seen.

Perhaps one day we shall return!


The Alhambra palace as viewed from the Hill of the Sun.
“The Alhambra palace as viewed from the Hill of the Sun”

Photography enthusiasts who visit the Alhambra be warned: You will not be able to stop taking pictures. One scene is prettier and more captivating than the last!

NOTE: A complete pictorial essay of the Alhambra will be published on JBRish.com in the near future!
