CDP theme day: the future

The future... As a lifelong sci-fi fan (anything but Star Wars!), I imagine a city on another planet, Mars, Betelgeuse, Andromeda... Something like this. But not this one: this is Frankfurt, Germany.

More posts about this theme right...here.

Live long and prosper.

451


The 451st Christmas marker, or Christkindlsmaerik, has opened, amidst heightened security measures: Covid, terrorism... The very high Covid incidence rate, 377 and rising, means that we don't how long it will stay open.

Almost winter

Cold and grey November days. The original photo was too grey to my taste, so I colored it.
Will we have snow this winter???

The Rhine valley

The valley of the river Rhine, seen from the Vosges mountains, just above Kintzheim village. The German Black Forest in the back, underneath the cloud. Photo taken last summer.

Weekend in black and white

I was lucky enough to visit the municipal baths in Strasbourg this morning. A historical protected building, build between 1905 and 1908, reopening next Monday, after 3 years renovation. Complete with 2 inside pools, 1 outside pool, several saunas, hammam, roman baths, a salt wall sauna, 2 gyms, massage, healthy cooking courses... I'm probably forgetting something. Truly magnificent. More photos to come soon.(In colors!).

More b&w here, as usual.

A great big mess

Cookbooks. Well, just a small part of them. Many more books... I really need to sort them out one day, reread them, give many away. It might take me a whole day. I will do it, no need to remind myself every 6 months. And I really should stop buying 5-10 books a month, more than I can actually read!

Anyway, more messy post here, for this month's CDP theme day.

Pinball

I can't remember the last time I saw one of those machines in a bar. Probably Paris, in the 80es. Anyway, I was happy seeing a few at a vintage fair last weekend. For sale, at truly gigantic prices. Hey, it's vintage!

Now, let's head back to my crazy youth. Nice boots, Elton me boyo!
