Toys and game

First , toys :
On my left , a (very good) asiatic restaurant .
 
 

On my right , a bike .

 
Then , the game :
Trying to catch reflections !

Lost harbour

As I was a kid ,
one was free to walk along the quays ..
It was a pleasure to run and wave good bye
to people on ferries ;
To find a place where to sit and try to fish ;
To ride a bike along  the long
and empty wharfs ;
To dream of adventures while looking at the sea ..
 
 
 
Today , there are fences everywhere .
Signs with
" Restricted Aeras "
" Stop "
" Do not cross"
" Forbidden "
 It's even hard to see the sea .
 
It's hard to dream through a grill ..

Wednesday Doorway


Names and doors have something in common :
One never knows what's behind ..
 
 
" Idalie" comes from " Idalion ",
an antic city built in Cyprus as a tribute to the goddess Venus .
Now what :
Was the owner of the house very fond of antic history ?
Was he in love with a women called Idalie ?
Was she as beautiful as Venus ?
One never knows what's behind things ..

The word of the week

" To shake " was the word of the week .
Last monday we had a 5,1 strong earthquake .
We've been dancing during 15 long seconds ..
 
 
Then I had to take the train much more often than I usually do .

 
And those who already used a french train know what I mean
when I'm speaking about shaking here..

 
( But how many people can enjoy such a view
while going to work?..)

 
Next shake was a shock :
Tourists are suddenly back !
 Easter holidays just began
and crowds arrived on the shore ..
 
 
Last shake came from music !
 When concerts ,
exhibitions and others events invade streets ,
it means that summer time is beginning ..
Let's swing  !

Off

 
I won't be blogging during a few days .
I'd like to say I'll enjoy some holidays , but no :
I only will be very busy, with a lot of work ..

 
Take a good care of you !
See you soon !

Not what it seems

This is NOT an advertising for a car !
 
 
 
It's only a different way to show the famous

Last days

 
My place seems to be ready to welcome the new season .
 
 
It's time to enjoy last quiet moments ,
last silences ..
 

Last winter breathes try to deny evidence
and put chairs down ..



.. but things are on their way..

 
And soon ,
the old wharf will go back to youth once more ..



Last resting days before the summer storm ..

Heureux poisson(s) d'Avril !

New time

Today , we have to change time in France .
At 10, it will be 11 ..
One calls it " summer hour ".
I must admit I have trouble with that .
I'm never sure to do things the right way .
 
 
 
Backward , forward ..
sounds like upside down to me ..
Who are we to play with time ?...

13 years ..

Maybe I should add glasses to my birthday wish list ..
 
 
- Never old to my eyes , boy !
I love you just the way you are ..



HAPPY BIRTHDAY , JIM !

World to world

 
 
 
Some bridges jump from a shore
to an other ..
 

Some bridges jump from reality
to dreams ..

Wednesday Doorway




 
In the oldest part of the town ,
it's still possible to find doors old enough
to speak latin and to believe in God ..

Dark side

 
Monaco ..
 
 
Famous for its casino ,
its gardens ,
its Grand Prix ,
its  Prince ..
 
 
.. its tunnels along the sea ..

Abstraction

 
Sometimes ,
nature seeks to sculpt reality
and achieves abstraction ..

 
.. turning a skyline
into a simple (but beautiful) blue line .
