December theme day: gift

Hi there. This is me, 7 years ago, recovering from open heart surgery in the ICU, at St Paul's hospital in Barcelona. I was given the gift of life.
A few years later, in Skopje, Macedonia, I suffered a severe stroke. And I died, my "new" heart just stopped. The doctors there, at the university hospital, brought me back, after 2 minutes. Again, the gift of life. Life changing experiences, both of them.
You guessed it, this month's CDP theme day is: gift. Being half german, I just HAVE to tell you that Gift is german for poison...;-) Waiting for german posts about that theme...
Anyway, just click here to see what my dudes and dudettes did about it! Do it now!

Wine, knack(wurst) and rock'n roll!

November City Daily Photographer theme day: rock'n roll. A hard one... To tell you the truth, Strasbourg is not a rock'n roll kind of place. Well, except for one place, the very excellent Bretzel Airlines. What could be more alsatian than a bretzel??? Well, don't answer this one.... Choucroute (aka sauerkraut), wines, and on, I know, guys...
To see more rock'n roll photos, click here.

Monthly CDP theme day: transition

Found some time for this, still a few days left before my course starts...
Transition, from Aldous Huxley's utopian brave new world to Orwell's 1984... The yearly christmas market is on, attracting hundreds of thousands visitors. So, the city center is barricaded, for fear of bad guys. Bridges blocked as on the photo, cops everywhere, controls... Christmas time in fortress Strasbourg.

CDP monthly theme day: abandoned

These are the 2 abandoned kittens we rescued in the last 8 years, In Cyprus and in Spain. Rio and Bundles.
How could someone have abandoned them at the first place??? Beats me.
More about the City Daily Photo blogs theme day here. And thanks, Peter, for not abandoning us! :-)

The main library in town


Médiathèque André Malraux, the biggest public library in town (27 more). Books in several languages, magazines, CDs, DVDs, computers.
That's how it was 116 years ago, a warehouse for ships going up and down the river Rhine:
I confess, I am not a library user. Although a compulsive and avid reader, I prefer OWNING books? rather than having to give them back.

More infos about André Malraux here.

Theme day: shadow and highlight

Well, ok: I confess. This is not Strasbourg (I wish!). This was aboard a ferry from Tanger, Morocco, to Tarifa, Spain. 2 more destinations with direct busses from Strasbourg. Or trains, planes, automobiles...

There can only be ONE

May day, theme day. Smell, is the theme. Easy. No pretty flowers, no expensive perfume, no stinky socks or cat litter... No. What gets me going, what keeps me going is the smell (and the taste) of a good cup of...

Theme day: the beauty of simplicity

Happiness could be just this: a good book, both feet in the water, a hot summer day(old photo)... Beautiful, and so simple.
