This a photo we took in Vevey, Lac Leman, Switzerland. A strange sculpture in the shallow part of the lake. This giant fork sculpture was created by Jean-Pierre Zaugg and Georges Favre in 1995. They are both Swiss artists. From here, if you turn around you will see the food museum, the Alimentarium.
If you get a chance and you want to see a great little independent film then pay to see Tea and Sangria. It is a film by Peter Domankiewicz who has put his life, soul and most of his money into making and getting it distributed. He and the cast all deserve success with this wonderful romcom. It is the story of David who moves to Madrid to live with his Spanish girlfriend but not everything goes to plan. Search for it on Twitter and Facebook as well as looking at the reviews.
Last weekend we went to the Week-End de la Céramique on a sunny but cold day in Morges on the shore of Lac Leman in Switzerland. It takes place over two days during the Fête de la Tulipe. . Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk
Fortunately for me I’m not. It looks very enticing at times in that somebody has to win but invariably there has to be a lot of losers as well for there to be a big winner. My partner took this photo of some very good street art in the East End of London. It is a very detailed piece of work and is a play on a well known chain of betting shops in the UK.

Just next to the Lausanne Cathedral in Switzerland and looking down on the rooftops we could see this space invader. It could be the work of the artist Invader but I haven’t checked. It is a great location. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
I’m sure that if you welded together a load of scrap iron and then painted it in the UK or some other countries and displayed it somewhere that you would get paid a fortune for what your average trainee welder probably gets paid a pittance for. Yes, I know I’m very cynical. Maybe in Coro, Venezuela where this photo was taken the person or persons who created this wonderful piece of work were too or maybe they were just paid for doing a decent day’s work like the rest of us. Art is for everyone isn’t it? We did think however that at the time there was very little difference between the buses running and the ones hanging on the wall. On one bus we experienced a dramatic bang from some suspension component failing. The trouble was that the used part that they replaced it with didn’t look all that different from the component being removed. But that’s how a lot of the world still works.

I’m hoping that with the thaw in relations between Cuba and the US that they won’t lose too much of the many good things that go with their alternative system of government. They have considering their GDP such amazing health and education systems and as in this photo a lot of natural talent in the arts. This was taken in Parque Serafin Sanchez in the Cuban city of Sancti Spiritus on a sunny Sunday morning. On one of our previous trips there was already a very low quality American film being played on the bus journey we took between two cities. This is already the case all over South America so we can only hope that Cuba pushes back a little. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
I took this photo just after Christmas on a very hot sunny day walking along the promenade of the River Parana in the city of Santa Fe in Argentina. The stencil artist created this piece telling children that Father Christmas does not exist. As the promenade is very popular with families I wonder how many children asked their parents if it was true. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagrhmedia.co.uk .
This interesting sculpture sits on a small roundabout near the EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland. The building in the background is the Rolex Learning Centre and is part of that campus. Photograph copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
