Feeling blue (again)




It was one of those days ..
Blue was everywhere around..
No escape for the eyes ..

Something in the air ..


.. is talking about
summer's end ,
hoarded memories ,
shells on shelves ...

Morning yoga



I'm finally back to my early walks .
 It's good to meet old friends again ,
surprising them in their routine ...

Faces

 
We see so many faces during our lives ..
When we're coming back from holidays ,
some of them become special memories .
 
*
 
 Some seemed to want to tell us something ,
 from ages ..
 
Abbaye de Moissac
 
 
 *
 
 
 
 
We remember some others simply because we found them beautiful ..

Musée Ingres , Montauban
 
 
 
 
 

.. or strange and strong .
 
Musée Ingres , Montauban
 *
 
Some were only mysterious .


Montauban
 
 
 
 
 
 
And some others told us so much about the place
and about the people living there ..

Time Machine

 
 
" Time ..
It's relative .
It can be lost
or it can be saved .
It can go in a flash ,
or it can feel like it 'd never end .
For most of us ,
there's no control in time ."
 
(Dr Who)
 
 
*
 
Luckily for us all ,
some places are real time machines .
And make you feel like a time traveller ,
lost some centuries ago ...

Surprises

The good thing , with holidays ,
 is that you never know
where you'll find next  adventure .
 
Maybe right behind the lighthouse ,
when meeting the first wave ..
 
 
 
Maybe in your plate ..



Maybe after  the final step on the wharf ..



Maybe at the other end of the beach ..

 
.. if ever there's an other end ..

Less ephemeral

 
 
Long before me ,
other people left tracks behind them .
 
 
 
Beautiful ,
serene ,
ever lasting prints ..

 
Those people  disappeared ,
but what they left behind
is still offering happiness to us ,
for body and soul ..

Prints



I left them far away from home ,
on a sand beach ,
on the atlantic side of France .
They surely disappeared now ,
 gone with the waves ,
gone with the wind ...

Summer time



Time for me to slow down .
I have books to read ,
waves to dive into ,
family and friends to visit ,
 long days to enjoy .
So I'll come here on blogs only from time to time .
Maybe once a week,
maybe more , maybe less .
I don't know yet .
 
I wish you a long , blissful
 and beautiful summer !
Bye !

AVE !

HELLO !
 


Sometimes ,
modern art has a special meaning .
 

 
 
It becomes a link between past and future ,
between dream and reality .
 
This Etruscan Man seems to be wondering
about a way to cross the Mirror .
A mirror , or time ?...
