Handheld, very long focal

Storks are here, which means spring is here!
They were quite far away, so I used the newly discovered digital zoom capability on my Lumix. Handheld shot, at 2040 mm focal length, legs steadied, leaning against a tree, elbows blocked, the usual. I don't use tripods, as I have naturally a very steady hand. Strangely enough: my right arm and hand are partially disabled (stroke), and this a "perk"... Once steadied, my hand and arm won't move. Very convenient for a few things, like taking photos...
Sorry about the poor quality of the photo, just trying to make a point here.

Ca(t)ndles

I've had candles of many colors and shapes in my life, but this is new to me! Good thing the shop was closed last sunday, saved some money.
Well, I might actually go back. On a weekday.

Olivier

I have no idea who Olivier is, but someone loves him!
Well, olivier means olive tree in french. Maybe someone loves an olive tree??? Maybe a tree hugger? We'll never know, I guess.

Pastel

Finally a whiff of spring in the air, after the snowiest winter in ages. Very nice light this morning in the Grand Rue. Yet another restaurant I haven't tried. Yet.

The hobbit car

Or is it a shoebox on wheels? Never seen one before. Anyway, not my size, for shoes or cars, being 1m87, 6 foot 3, with shoe size 45. My head and toes would stick out. Cute, though.

The winter menu

2 days till spring.That means it is still winter. Fresh snowfall last night. But anyway, you still need to know what's there to eat, innit?

Almost spring

Well, some kind of spring, the polar kind once again, as temperatures are dropping and dropping. And dropping to minus 10 degrees C  next week. Seychelles, here I come! I wish!

Fire in the sky

This morning's big lightshow, at around 6.30 AM. It didn't last for very long. What can be seen in the back is the Black Forest mountain range, in Germany, around 20 miles, 30 km away.

Gandhiji

I was happily surprised to find this postcard, in midst of all the "greetings from Strasbourg" and recipe cards! Colorful.
And yes, you can buy postcards with good alsatian recipes, pretty much everywhere!
