Dear September ,

Dear September ,
 I usually like to see you arriving ,
like a good friend ,
 the arms full of gifts :
Some cool air for my mornings ,
some peace for my beach ,
 some raindrops to refresh me , 
some projects for my mind  ..
But this year ,
you were very disappointing !
No such gifts .
You brought only bad news ,
 bad moments ,
problems and tiredness..
You left me with heat and dust .
I almost did not see you  !

Now that October is knocking at the door ,
 you finally decided to be a little more kind .
This morning ,
 you added a touch of grey to my skies ,
sent a very few raindrops
and ruffled my hair with a light sea breeze..
And there was no bad news to hear .
We could say it's a good day ,
 but hey,
 it's your LAST day !

So good bye, September 2014 !
When you'll come back next year ,
 try to be more pleasant .
Today ,
I let you go with relief ,
and no regret ..

Like every of us ,
the sun begins to wake up later and later ..

It's autumn's lazyness ,
 that desire to stay a little longer in the bed .
I guess clouds must be comfortable at this time of the year..

Think different !

Be a Pirate !
A pink spot among all those blue ships ..

I knew that there was something suspicious with that !

First of all ,
for your kind comments
 and sweet words !
They were balm on my heart  !
But ..
You know that this blog NEVER speaks about politic .
 But sometimes , too much is too much ..
Hervé Gourdel was born in Nice .
He was a nice guy , loved hiking in mountains ,
 taking pictures .
 He was murdered today,
in the most horrible way ,
 by fanatics ,
in Algeria .

All my thoughts go to his family and friends .

September , 22

I almost forgot it !
was the day of my first post !
In those times , my blog was called
 " Blue Fragments " .
It still exists .
I noticed that some names were already on my blogroll and in comments :
Rune  (From Visual Norway)
Jim (From Clueless in Boston )
Nobu (From Toyo Snap Photo)
Leia (From Bonjour Luxembourg)
7 years !
During this time , I have met ,
and sometimes lost , so much people !
I've learned so much !
Not only about blogs and computers ,
 but also about humanity, friendship ,
.. curiosity , discovering ,
minds opening ..
 I've been wondering about going on or not .
Like all of us , I guess ,
I sometimes had bad times ,

But after taking advice ,
puting things on balance ,
 I've made my decision ..

I would miss you too much !
I like our rendez-vous and meetings,
I like to discover your comments ,
I like to read and learn from you .
 As well as I like to show you
my little corner of the world .
Maybe I'll blog less, , or less often .
 Maybe I'll be late to visit you .
But I'll go on .
Nothing to lose ,
only good things to win .

Dear All of you ,
Thank you for being so faithfull !
Thank you for being there !
 Thank you for all what we share , through months and years !
I'm pleased to think that ,
all together , we're building something ,
we show and prove that people
can learn to know each others
and become friends , no matter miles and frontiers.
Thank you ,
 and Happy Birthday to YOU !


Yesterday was the last day of
Trophée Pasqui ,
a sea race for old fashion wooden boats .

Time to admire fabulous ships in action ..


For those who are interested :
I'll publish  photos  about this all week long
on my blog about boats

When clouds draw
a new kind of skyline ..
Have a quiet week-end !

Note to myself :

Think to widen the window ,
in order to catch more of the landscape ..

Small sign , great story

Sometimes ,
we walk through places without looking at them
I recently saw this sign on a wall
and decided to investigate .

I discovered that between 1911 and 1919 ,
the great painter Auguste Renoir  came to Nice every winter
and lived here .

 This was the view from his windows ..

.. And this is what remains from those times :

Renoir and Nice !
A story of love and light ,
and colors ..
Always look behind signs ,
they tell more than they're showing !

Sun gave me gold ,
 sky offered some blue and greys ,
I asked autumn for ochres and yellows .
Found some touch of green in memories .
Have a colorful and quiet sunday !

Double Reader

The feathered Gull will read the sign ,
 its reflection... the reflected replica !

A lot of ..

Look at the wall , on the right ..
In 1768 ,
Bougainville (Explorer ) arrived in Tahiti ,
Châteaubriand (Writer ) was born ,
Louis XV was King of France .

And in Nice ,
Bar de la Dégustation ("Sampling Bar " )
 opened .
That means a lot of drinks and glasses ..
or a lot of lies ?...

Sunday morning business

Lazy or busy ,
 have a nice sunday !

Two bi- or not two bi-

A bike ..
.. or two ..
if reflected in a puddle .

Are we more than this
to each other?..
passing by
walking along for a while
then disappearing
into the light ..
