Protection

Assault rifle on front. Well, this is Strasbourg as well, as France is subjected to terrorist attacks. Groups of at least 3 soldiers, always patrolling.

Route 66

Well, we have a Route 67 here, aka the Route des vins, vineyard road. French departements have a name, and also a number. Strasbourg is the capital city of the Bas Rhin (lower Rhine) departement, or 67.
This is something else. During the 86th European Trade Fair, right here, right now, they organised a route 66 exhibition.Et voila. Enjoy your tomato soup.

Ready to take over!

You never really know what's under your feet... Cables, water (there in a underground lake under the cathedral!), rats, tunnels... Or animals, ready to take over your balcony!

Post 777, which is also my favorite wide-body plane. Just saying. Carry on.

A belated and shortsighted Monday mural...

Yep, that's me alright! Robert le miro has been my nickname during my young years... Miro is french slang for shortsighted, or someone wearing glasses. And yep, I'm Robert, I've been wearing glasses since the age of 3, well over 50 years.
And no, I'm not related to the other guy... Or to Joan Miro (wonder if he was wearing glasses???)
More colourful Monday Murals at Sami's.

Resistance is futile.

It's back to school today in France, for millions of kids! Thousands of teachers started last week, to prepare classes, do paperwork, to prepare themselves... Shocking news: smartphones are forbidden in all schools from today! Oh well, guess kids will have to use their heads instead.

September 1st CDP theme day: teach

I am fairly proficient in Adobe's Lightroom, filters, HDR, ACR, and so on, but nothing more complicated. So, I bought the books, watching the videos and trying to TEACH myself what must be the most complex photography editing program: Photoshop. Again. Wish me luck! :-)
More on the TEACH theme here.

Not Strasbourg

Right. This blog is called Strasbourg daily photo, and other meanderings of a nomad. I am the nomad... So, this blog is mainly about my hometown, but not only...I love murals, but there are not many around. Therefore, during my frequent trips, I am always looking for them, and I post them here, on Facebook and Instagram. My meandering murals.
This one was taken in Paris, 19th arrondissement, near la Villette.
More monday murals here!

Before people

I love walking in town very early... I did the same whilst living abroad, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Dublin, New Delhi, and so on and so forth... It's all so quiet, as the singer Bjork used to say 20 or so years ago, all so quiet and peaceful, until...

Silly strasbourgeois trying to walk on water? Or is he trying to the waters? A silly Moses having lost his way to the Red Sea? Questions, so many unanswered questions....

Genova

My heart tonight goes to the city on Genoa, Genova, where a bridge of the main highway linking the city to France and the rest of Italy, collapsed this morning, killing at least 30 people. I was there last summer.
