Wet and easy

Theme day again for us city daily photographers, different theme every 1st of each month.
Well, this couldn't have been easier! The theme is; WET. So, behold the wetness of an italian beach earlier this week! Wet indeed, and far too cold to venture further in, despite of the almost summery air temperature!
Dont forget to click right   here   to enjoy more wetness!

Sorry about the quality, phone pic.

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.

More photos about it here.

Longing...

If you are longing for faraway places, Strasbourg is the place to be! Although we only have a tiny (5 gates) international airport, you can fly to Greece, Morocco, Turkey... By direct train, to Spain, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Italy, Germany... By bus, pretty much anywhere in Europe and Morocco. By boat, some river cruises go to the Netherlands, Venice, Romania, Russia. Hitchhiking, a local guy went round the world, in 5 years... Kudos to him.
I took this photo above, arriving in Skopje, Macedonia. Alexander the Great Airport.

Belonging

Where do I belong? Intriguing question at first... But the answer is quite obvious to me. I sometimes define myself as a constant traveler. My answer to this question would therefore be: on a train, on a plane, on an automobile, going around the...
Goa would be nice right now!

Theme day: belonging

Immigrants. Where do they belong? Not on the street. Not in camps. Not outside in the cold. No, they belong in our home. In John Le Carre's words: Home's where you go when you run out of homes.
