Auguste Rodin

The thinker, 1902, by Rodin is one of his most well-known works. The Rodin museum is one of my favourite museums (musea?). Situated near the Invalides, in Rodin’s old house, in the middle of a huge garden by Paris standards, it has long been one of our favourite strolls. The B&W pictures I took in…

Walking the “edge”

My mother is a tough Lady. She always tells us: “Don’t whine”. Uncle Joe is a CPA. We call him “Chief Joseph” to bug him. He grins: “I’m not a Nez-percé. I’m Umatilla.” I tease him: “Wasn’t your great-grandmother a Walla Walla?” My aunt works two jobs, but it doesn’t matter. (Don’t whine). Plus, they…

The last Travellers

There is abundant literature on a long-gone race of Travellers who aledgedly roamed the universe. Complex ceremonies have been well documented: Day of the Dead, Sacred city of Tlalpan. Travellers 106 et al. Some sat idly in the street. Traveller 107. Paris. Possible representation of Quasimodo and Esmeralda. Travellers 108 &109. Sacred city of Tlalpan,…

Close call

Congratulations to America. (And the world). TBH I ‘been worried sick for the past few weeks. Compliments to the American voters. Very best wishes to the Biden-Harris team. Loooots of work to do. 👍🏻

Wordless Tuesday

I never accepted arbitrary. At school. In the Army. (Don’t argue with the Captain). In student government. (I once was a Student Senator in another life.) At work. Even with abusive clients. Client is first but there are limits. Arbitrary is a common human behaviour. It must be fought at all cost. Thanks to Scottie…

Susanna, Peter and Wilhelmina

“Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste…”. I am Peter Pumpkin. “Wilhelmina is my name. Witching is my trade…” “Oh Susanna, don’t you cry for me, I come from Alabama, with my banjo on my knee…” “Thank you for the colours”, said Peter. “The turret’s a bit askew, isn’t…

Maya street art

“Copy paste”. I’m using the new bl..dy editor for the first time. “If it works don’t fix it”. Don’t you guys ever learn? Of course I can’t align the text as I want… Grrrr. (Just found the way!) Swimming through the waters of the programmer’s mind. Murky. Akumal by bus. Rastafarai! I’m feeling a bit…

Pot-pourri soixante-seven

Beach police? Seriously? The FBI wasn’t invented yet. But bureaucrats were alive and kicking. I wonder whether this beach is on the Potomac, in D.C. See the obelisk in the background? (Source unknown) Beers of the world series. Colombia, a while back. Loos of the world series. Tandoor restaurant, Mexico city. Last time we had…

The last of Banksy

Have Gangsta rats taken over? I can think of a few names. “Last of Banksy”? No worry, as far as I know Banksy is alive and well. I’m just running out of material. Banksy’s. No fear. Plenty of other stuff. Those are my last photos of Banksy’s fab’ expo last year in Paris. Enjoy. “Fly,…

Doors…

Or windows? What’s your preference? Tlalpan, Mexico city. Door. Tlalpan. Most of those are from Colonial times. 16th, 17th century. Number 250, previously number 42. Couldn’t find the door. I wonder how the “mailperson” does it? Beyond the shadow of a door… (Might have done that one already?) I am working on my shadows… Anybody…
