Mardi, mai 11th, 2010

 Still stuck in Madrid (thanks to Easyjet´s incompetency…), so here is another archive shot.

 Rain falls without discrimination, yet only the wealthy protect themselves in Burberry ways.  (click on picture to enlarge)

Montparnasse Travellers

Lundi, mai 10th, 2010

I usually post pictures taken in the ongoing week. But unluckily I am stuck in Madrid due to a volcanic ash cloud (I know there are worse places to be stranded ;) ).  Hope to be back in Paris tomorrow meanwhile here is an older post I had never published and relates to my current situation.

 In front of the Montparnasse station and its famous tower, two young travellers debate. On the next destination ?  (click on picture to enlarge)

Vendredi, mai 7th, 2010

Two kids play in front of the Mouling Rouge. Not really mimicking the show about to start but playing with the wind of the metro air vent.  (click on picture to enlarge)

Jeudi, mai 6th, 2010

A man walking by a neighbourhood flea market does not seem convinced by the goods sold by a Russian antique stand. Are they that fearful even in paintings ?(click on picture to enlarge)

Less work, more sleep

Dimanche, mai 2nd, 2010

A girl rests a few minutes in the underground under a billboard. The ad was apparently tagged by a rogue who added « Let’s stop working and sleep more ».  I guess the very good advice was applied on the spot by the girl.  (click on picture to enlarge)
