Antique weekend in black and white

I'm always amazed, surprised, intrigues and amused when I see antique shops. What would you buy?
More black and white photos here.

A detail

A detail of the cathedral. No idea what it is, or why it's there.
Let's call him... Donald.

Benvenuti a Roma!

Welcome to Rome! Well, no. It's actually in the inner courtyard of the Rohan's family palace, in Strasbourg (princes, cardinals, etc). I guess the bust represents one of the Rohans, no name I could see. They sure loved roman style architecture!

A weekend reflection

A very classic view of the heart of the Petite France area, a perfect reflection: no wind or waves, no ducks, no boats... There must be millions of similar photos or postcards... Well, this is mine.
More reflections here.

La tête dans les nuages

Head in the clouds: someone who is easily distracted.
Well, Monday is usually when I post murals. This isn't really a mural, as the street artist Dan23 painted a small square, place de la Vignette, in Strasbourg. Hard to take a photo of the whole square/painting, always delivery trucks parking on it. Or you can click here , french only.
Real murals here.

Someone lost his/her balls...

Where I belong...

Strasbourg is totally land-locked. Can't wait to be back on the sea!

The flâneur

Fernando Pessoa, waiting for a coffee in front of the Brasileira coffee house, in the Chiado quarter, Lisbon. Pessoa was the greatest lusophone ( = portuguese speaking) poet. More about this very interesting person right here.
There must be millions of photos of this statue. Well, this is one of mine.

CDP monthly theme day: neighbourhood

Well, this is my immediate neighbourhood, as taken from my balcony this morning, in Ostwald, just outside Strasbourg. Ostwald, German for east forest, or east wood. No, Clint does not live here.
3 more schooldays for the kids at the back.
More about the theme all around the world here.
