Pot-pourri six fois trois dix-huit


My last two posts, “The black Queen”, and “1916. The bride wore black” were a tad dark. So I thought this Pot-Pourri # 18 might add some colour. Above: Notre-Dame. Without flood.

I felt relieved after seeing this solicitor’s advertisement in London.

In the garden, Mexico city. This little bird was down on the floor, panting. I locked up Miao Zedong, our cat, and tried to give it a bit of water. No dice. Then as I tried to pick it up, it flew up to a branch. I guess it was all right eventually.

Street art, Camden Town, London. I didn’t know about Camden until I saw a post by my friend Tiffany Choong. Visit her blog:


Camden Town is a great place in London. Lots of street art, events. I will do a special Camden Town post. Some day. πŸ™‚

Above and below: Suez Canal, IsmaΓ―lia, Egypt. c. 1928. On the steps of the house. L. to r. my grandmother, Julie (so “fashion”), my grandfather, Pierre, my father Cyril, about 10, and my aunt Gaud, dressed to the nines and sulking as any self-respecting teenager sometimes does. πŸ˜‰

    • Yes. Thru time. This photograph was in one of my cousins archives. I’d never seen it until just a few years ago. πŸ™‚ My father was from 1918. He would have been 100 in two years. That picture is almost a century old. πŸ™‚

      • The Camden here is not so nice anymore. There is some great history on the city. For may years it has been on the decline and all negtive things were on the rise. Over the last couple years the state and community have been working on bringing it back.

    • Thank you Susan. I find those images quite “poignant”. My Dad and his family were there, sitting on the stairs of a house in Egypt, almost a century ago. And Pffff! Gone. πŸ™‚
      Have a lovely week my friend. (And good books)

    • Thank you. It seems the pot-pourri process is working well. Both in terms of reception and production. As for the latter, I now pick photos from different files, times, places, and see if it combines. πŸ™‚

      • Haha! ’bout the 50 klicks we did not really have any say-so in the matter. Army you know.
        90 kms “run”. OMG. Daughter #2 the one graduating at Elliot last year? She ran – and trained – for the Chicago Marathon a few years back.
        Finished all right. But she says she could barely crawl for a week afterwards… πŸ™‚

    • Merci Julie. πŸ™‚ There is order in my apparent Chaos. (FranΓ§ais, CartΓ©sien, etc.) I preselect photos from different times and places and dump them into a folder and let it sit. Then when I’m ready to post, I move a dozen pix to another folder. Need to be: different subjects, places, time-machine, variety is what I look for in my “mΓ©lange”. Bon weeek-end my friend. ‘Best to Hubby.

    • Thank you Patti. Julie Riso, la Vagabonde asked me if just closed my eyes and picked photos at random. πŸ™‚ You confirm there is some order in that Chaos. πŸ™‚
