Frieda

Finally, finally it’s done: We are back to third.
A girl, 18 months old, playful, joyful, full of verve.

Isn’t she beautiful?

Corner View – silly

Seagulls and silly – that fit together – in my eyes.
Seagulls, whether in Paris or on the Baltic Sea, always see something curious, almost comical and conceited.
When they strut around, turning their head and look, and fly through the air with loud cries …
simply silly.

Corner View – Iconic

 

Iconic – there are a lot of things that are legendary for me.
For example, musicians such as Johnny Cash,  an actor as Clint Eastwood, a writer like Hemingway.
Cities like New York and Paris. Cars like a Corvette.

In Paris we visited an exhibition of photographs in the Maison Européenne de la photographie a particularly fine exhibition, the best we’ve seen this year.
There were several themes and exhibit area, and all are worth seeing.

I would like to mention a photographer who has inspired us both: Jane Evelyn Atwood
She is probably not legendary, but she has what it takes to become legendary.

Her photos are mainly in black/white. I admire that they are not close her eyes to the misery. She look closely and puts her finger on the “wound”.
I liked all her photos and her subjects very much, about the prostitutes, on about blind people, about war victims.
But the series of women in prisons, which touched me deeply.

Six Days in Paris – Part I: Montmartre

 The first morning (we were flying very early:)) greeted us with sunshine and music, as we came out of the metro.
We had booked B & B, and lived in a nice apartment right in the Montmartre area. It was busy, hustle and music, small shops,
vegetables, fish and cheese merchants, nice cafes and restaurants. There was always plenty to look at.
