Week-End de la Céramique

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. SONY DSC. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Street Artists – the best artists

Forget all those celebrity artists and take a walk round any city to look at some real works of creative art. In London it is around the East End, especially around Brick Lane and there are so many examples that change quite rapidly. It is an outside art gallery and you need to be looking up and down as well as around you. If we weren’t looking down we would have missed this Art You Might Miss 2 East End Street Art piece. It is probably no more than 20cm tall but it is so clever with the shadows drawn onto the pavement as if the sun is rising from behind where the actual wall is. If you are in London for whatever length of time you should visit this part of the city. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

Paris in the Springtime – Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris In the Pink

Paris is a small and beautiful city with its narrow streets and wonderful sites and experiences. It is especially so in the Springtime as seen here when we visited the cathedral of Notre Dame when all the blossom was on the trees. Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris In the Pink So when are you going?

Morges Waterfront and Harbour

Switzerland, if you have never visited it, is a very beautiful country, you could say a photogenic country. It is very easy to take pictures of lovely vistas. This is a photo that I took one sunny morning looking out over the water of the very calm Lac Leman. Morges Waterfront and Harbour Morges is one of many, almost sleepy little towns nestled beside the lake. Try it, you will like it.

Les invisibles sont invincibles

A photo of some simple but perhaps prophetic graffiti from a wall near the centre of Lausanne in Switzerland.

Cool Cuban Cat – Sancti Spiritus Cuba

This cat was not phased by the people coming and going into this building which I think was one of the new shops being operated in the city of Sancti Spiritus in Cuba. SONY DSC Truly a cool cat. Copyright Paul Andrews and Caroline Schmutz, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk

The Old Kings Head

I haven’t had the pleasure of going for a drink in this pub although I should have by now. It does look fairly traditional East End boozer. The outside is amazing. Check out these superb green tiles.

1950’s Red Pontiac Outside the Casa of Beny and Roberto Santa Clara Cuba

Beny and Roberto run an excellent casa in the city of Santa Clara in Cuba and they own a very old red Pontiac.

Running Towards the Bastille 2014 Paris Marathon

This is a photo I took on the 6th of April as a large number of runners were heading towards the Bastille in Paris. Running Towards the Bastille 2014 Paris marathon We didn’t see a lot of the event but at the various parts of the course that we did see there didn’t appear to be the public support for it that you would see in London. It was a fairly nice Spring day but despite running past many apartments with balconies the balconies were generally empty. Given the beauty of Paris it is a shame that the event isn’t better supported by the public. The organizers had done a lot of work and there was live music at places. And 50,000 runners registered for the event. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
