Cold feet?

As I'm getting older, cold feet becomes a common occurrence. Specially when seeing the birdies... Wonder if they too have cold feet?
Anyway, we have a big swan colony on the canals and rivers in Strasbourg.

Holidays, anybody?

It's freezing cold here, day temperatures negative, despite of the sun. Traveling back in time and in space, Bassano del Grappa, northern Italy, June 2018, home of the grappa. Or to the early 80 es, in my case... Had a girlfriend there.

On the quai des Bateliers, near the cathedral, there is very old this house, with an unusual decoration. I was unable to find any info about it, but it reminds me of the indianos in Barcelona...
