Saving the cathedral!

Right. There was that guy making bubbles. Big bubbles, really bis ones. So, I waited, ready to kill any bubble big enough to take the cathedral (in the background) away! Or a kid.

A reflection on changing camera

Unfortunately, I had to buy a new camera, as my old DSRL doesn't recognize RGB (colors red, green and blue) anymore. Boohoo!
So, first trial with my new Panasonic Lumix TZ80. Very happy with it for the moment, despite of a steep learning curve.

Il Galeone Neptune

So, I travelled a bit... Does this ship look familiar? You might have seen it in the 1985 Roman Polanski movie "Pirates". A reproduction from a spanish galleon, you can now visit it in the port of Genova, Italy. 6 euros.

More water, Niki!

Welcome back to Paname, Paris! Not wanting to make yet another postcard picture of the Niki de Saint Phalle fountain, (specially as there was no water), I played a bit around. Hope you'll like it.

Yet another Aussie in town ;-)

We have a few kingfishers in the area, but this is most probably the only kookabura  in town. He might be from Mooloolaba, who knows?

Insomnia

So last night I couldn't sleep, for some reason unknown to me. Well, I decided to take the first bus to town (5.20AM), had a coffee at the train station, went for a walk. This is the Petite France, just before 6 AM. So peaceful and quiet.
Tired now.

Abdullah Öcalan

A group of people has been camping in front of the Council of Europe in hope of freeing their leader (quote). More about it here.
Now turkish people, friends, this is in no way propaganda!!! I'm just taking photos about Strasbourg, that's all. No need to put me in jail, or something! This is about photography and about Strasbourg, not politics

Le troquet des kneckes

Nice restaurant in the city center, with some rather special wall mountings. Troquet des kneckes means the boy's pub, in a mix of french and southern alsatian dialect. Yeah, down there in Mulhouse, they have kneckes. Here we have buwe.

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.
