Sea of straws

My old home 20 years ago, on the shores of the Mar de Palha. In other words, Liboa/Lisbon/Lissabon/Lisbonne, depending on where you are from. If you've never been there, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???? OK, I might be biased, as  love the place, the people, the food, the coffee... A nice bica with my pastel de Belem: heaven.

Anyway, more b&w here.

A Monday Mural

As most of Strasbourg is a world heritage site (2 actually), street art can be done in the outskirts. Here are some utility boxes, near the international exhibition area. Wanna see more murals? Click HERE.

Cherubs or demons?

I guess they are supposed to be cherubs, little angels on this fountain in Florence. But for me, they look downright evil.
Good or evil, black or white... More b&w here.

Add some cushions, a small table, friends, coffee... Or tea, for some.

An army of naughty dwarves showing me the finger. I chose not to be offended.

About 170

About 170 bridges over rivers and canals in Strasbourg. Small number compared to the 438 Venice bridges, but hey, they have more canals than we do!

Waiting for tourists

The boarding places for the sightseeing boats going around the canals. The tourists are coming back, fortunately, after 2... strange years.

Hello, bunnies, looks like Easter!

You know the drill: more b&w for the weekend here.

                                Happy Easter, joyeuses Pâques, frohe Ostern!

A lamp?

OK, quite frankly, I don't remember taking this photo. I haven't been back to Venice since the start of Covid, and I usually hundreds of photos every time I go there, which is 3-4 times a year. Anyway,  suppose it is a quite intricate lamp. What do you think

Notre Dame de Paris

Old photo. The cathedral is still being repaired, hopefully reopening in 2025

Blooming magnolia

Whenever I see magnolias, I know: spring has arrived! 
Free earworm!
I know... It's awful... I have sometimes (very rarely though) an evil streak... LOL

A Monday Mural

Weird beastie...Is it eating the tree, or does the tree come out of it??? Or trying to grow a lemon tree in a it a fish??? This reminds me of a famous Hieronymus Bosch painting. 
The text above, le sans pépins, means the seedless one. With or without seeds, I like lemon juice on my fish. If it's a fish, of course...
 Anyway, do you want to see more murals? Easy, just click here!

A town hall

Basel, Switzerland, has a unique, 16th century town hall. Originally painted by Hans Holbein around 1522.

Weekend reflection in black and white

One more shot from a stroll in the Orangerie park, by almost summerly weather. Well, snow expected here tonight and tomorrow, the first, and hopefully last for this past winter.

More b&w here, as usual on Friday. And more reflection posts here.

It is the CDP theme day as well, about symmetry. Have a look!
