“¡Tierra y libertad!” (Land and freedom) Emiliano Zapata, one the leaders of the Mexican Revolution, 1910. Tlalpan, Mexico city.
LA Seine. THE river. (What? I’m partial? Yeah. So?)
The dark side, Camden Town, London, 2014.
Toulouse Lautrec revisited. Mexico city, 2016.
Detail, “Delight your senses”.
I thought the dancer was “la Goulue”, but it’s Jane Avril (1868-1943). See below:
Jeanne Beaudon, Aka Jane Avril.
Breakfast starting at 60 pesos. (3 dollars). Tlapan, Mexico city. Three blocks from the new house.
Berlin, 2003. Monument to the Holocaust.
The new and the old. Mexico city.

Guinea, West Africa. C.1964. Sis’ at the helm of Avel Mor II (Sea wind in Breton). Full throttle.
Thank you for sailing with Equinoxio. Until next time, fair winds.
The usual (c) and all that, except for Jane Avril. (Not a clue)
50 thoughts on “Pot-pourri 3 x 7 =”
I’ll settle for the last two pictures. They fully feel like the sixties and man do I miss those years (although I was born in ’66). 🙂
’66? On route 66? Or one 6 short of 666? At any rate that makes you 50. Bon anniversaire mon ami. (Or is it still due?) 😉
Who knows – there’s a lot of 6 in my life. 🙂
Thanks for the good wish, my 50th has been in July. 🙂
Well, a belated half century to you. And many happy returns of the day, as the english say… 😉
Merci beaucoup, cher ami! 🙂
Pot pourri 3×7. . . On n’est pas loin de 23 ! Merci pour ces nouveaux clichés, qui me transportent ailleurs !
Equinoxio Airways will take you anywhere in space and time… 😉
Magical whizz around the globe – things of lightness and darkness. Love especially the childhood shots.
Thank you Tish. “Lightness and darkness”? I like that. On several planes actually, not just graphic. Merci. How is Life treating you near the Nottingham forrest? 😉
We might actually be going in said forest’s vicinity shortly! But otherwise, life in Shropshire-on-Sherwood is pretty good.
I’m sure it is. I… can imagine a sense of peace, sadly lacking here. Kwaheri sassa.
Have been there and back, and actually nowhere near Sherwood. Seen lots of rugged Derbyshire stone walls, and dramatic scarps and moors. And yes, it was peaceful – mostly, though we are cursed with too much road traffic – to which we were of course adding ourselves.
Derbyshire sounds nice. I do have a fancy of making a grand tour of the British countryside some day. I suspect some parts may look like Normandy.
It’s amazing just how much countryside there is – most of Wales, much of Scotland, which is gobsmackingly beautiful with many vast wilderness areas, and that’s before one’s thought of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Derbyshire Peak District, Northumberland, the West Country and Shropshire, or the islands north, west and south. Some parts are definitely like Normandy. So yes, do it. Give yourself a few months though. We even have good food about the place, albeit sporadically, though never as good as France.
You confirm my darkest fears. I had thought of a few months indeed. So many places to go. I understand there is a lovely walk along the cliffs in Cornwalls that takes days. But how much food should one pack? 😉 Kwaheri sassa Memsahib.
That Cornish walk would be good. I’m sure you’d get lots of fish on the way. No need for the porters and chop boxes.
Haha! No “Take me to your leader” kinda stuff? Have a lovely week-end Tish. Kwaheri sassa.
Happy weekend to you too, Brian.
I am into murals arts nowadays. Your findings are pretty awesome. Still on the road?
Selamat malam Indah. Glad you liked it. Back home in Mexico. Trying to sort loads of pictures. 🙂 And preparing to move into the new house south of the city in one month. (OMG). You getting ready for winter?
Semaine un peu compliquée, ça arrive parfois. . . J’ai toujours su m’évader, et, c’est nouveau pour moi, je plonge dans tes univers : j’aime ça ! Many thanx and take care.
Mes univers parallèles? Bon voyage.
The twilight zone n’a plus de secret pour moi.
Cleaning out photo files are you? These are great.
Haha! Sort of. I am fortunate enough to have (family) photos going back to the 19th century (in India) plus 20th century spanning a good bit of the globe. (You have roamed a bit). And 95% is digitalized and sorted. Hence my pot-pourri series, where I grab a picture from here or then. Glad you liked them. How’s the book going?
Funny seeing French art in Mexico. Love the boat photos too. Hope you are well.
It is. Funny. But then Toulouse-Lautrec is universal. The boat photos are nice. Now you understand why I could relate to your boat show photos. We are well, crawling out of a nasty flu. You? Struggling to move around? 🙂
Everything is good on my end of the world. Mother nature teased us with cool weather for a couple of days and now it’s hot again. Other than that nothing exciting to report. I haven’t taken any trips lately because I haven’t really had the energy for it.
That is fine. At any rate, there comes a time when road travel is not recommended any more. (Now I must sound like your father…) 😉 Are you allowed to stay at work as long as possible?
I am. I can work right up until the end as long as I feel good.
That is very good. Leaves you more tim for afterwards. Thumbs up emoticon.
Glad to hear you’re on the mend
Thank you my dear. Better on the mend than on the bend… 😉
Great!!!! I really really like the first mural…It is absolutely incredible… It reminds me the “Realismo mágico” … Artists from South America have an inner world full of magic and passion!
Have a great weekend Brian!
BTW: you looked very handsome when a child! 😉
Murals here are “ossom”! In Colombia too. But I think it has already developed into strong form of art. (See my last San Francisco post today) There is great talent out there. (Y Gracias!) 😉
amazing pix Brian, loved the 1964 shot the most 🙂
Thank you dear. Those are but remnants of a long a distant past. 😉
I would have to concur with your audience, love the PP’s! Always smile when I see some of my old stomping grounds occasionally in there too, but love seeing places I’ve never been to just as much.
Hmmm, the plot/fog thickens. Old stomping grounds? Guinea I don’t think so, unless your last name is Attwood. Which would be too much of a coincidence. Paris? Likely. Mexico I don’t think so. Berlin? During the cold war? 😉
Ha! Every guess wrong. Tra la la la….
In the research trade a “no answer” is as good as any. So, you must have been to Paris (they didn’t show you the book-boxes), London (I believe you said something about that), and Milan… 😉
(Your identity will be uncovered!)
NEVER sir! NEVERRRRRRR! 😀
Good recall with the book-boxes lol!
Il ne faut jamais dire jamais. Never say never. 😉 Bon week-end, Edith.
Okay, I’ll never never say never then. 😉
Wow! Wow! and re-wow! You agreed. :=) Must have been a slip. Made my day. Have a lovely week, Boadicea.
It looks like my sarcasm and mickey-taking of your wording was lost in the realization that I for once (may have) agreed with you.
I have failed. My country, my family, my blog and next door’s cat. I will be resigning at the end of the week.
Resign? No, Theodora. Out of the question. I have in fact been in touch with your neighbour’s cat.
It is adamant that you do not resign. You will have to carry on with the burden of your deeds, for
God, Queen and country!
Yours ever, Alastair.
Wow! Beautiful captures, Brian. My favorite is the one from the stairs to the top of the Cathedral, from Milano 2014 🙂
Italy is… so rich in beauty, one does not know where to start, but Milan’s cathedral is from another world. Going up and down the stairs, everything is… beauty. Really worth it. An interesting choice, “Monique”.
