Presqu'ile Malraux

The central public library, aka médiathèque André Malraux, on the Austerlitz Bassin. The cranes are what remains of the old docks from past times.

The port

Strasbourg lies on several rivers and canals, the most famous being the Rhine. Small boats are not allowed on the Rhine, too dangerous. But on the canals, you can go west, north, to the Med 900 km away... Or you can just live on a boat. The big thing above is a tramway bridge.

Weekend in black and white

Should you be wondering, this is not some nasty virus: it is part of a lamp, from back in the 60es or 70es.

More b&w here, as usual

Every December, there is ca kind of... challenge: who will wear the ugliest Christmas sweater... Not my thing, as I prefer nice clothes. Would you wear this thing above?

A Swiss Monday Mural

Well, last week I went to see my dealer in Switzerland... My drugs: chocolate and cheese! And as always: looking for murals. Like this one. And btw, yesterday's cheese fondue was pure bliss!

More Monday Murals needed? It's here.

A better view of the Basel minster. Founded in 1019 AD, it is 4 years younger then the Strasbourg cathedral. Excuse my chauvinism... 😂

Jean Tinguely's fountain

A nice day out in Basle/Bale/Basel/Basilea, the city with any names in Switzerland/Suisse/Svizzera/Schweiz/Schwyz. Correct me if I forgot something... lol. 

Anyway, there is this very nice and artistic fountain next to the Minster.

And I thought the moon was bigger...

It was called "the museum of the moon', central piece of an art exhibition last June in Strasbourg. A 7 meters inflatable moon inside our cathedral, based on NASA photos... Well, why not; after all.

More black and white art here. Click now.

February CDP theme day: power

No black tower (it's actually blue), although... The theme for February is: power. This is the European Central Bank. Need I say more?

More power(full.) post about power here.
