Second bed

When the captain cannot go home and sleep in his (wife’s) bed… a rocking night in this boat might be a solution.
A dangerous solution if the captain is a little drunk, which might be indeed a reason for his wife not to want him in bed…

Fishing for…

fishes or fishing just for fishing?
If the hunter comes back with mushrooms, don’t ask him how hunting was…
Maybe fishers simply want to spend a quite afternoon. And we can always ask them ‘how fishing was’.

Dogs know…

Snow again this morning here… So I publish an old photo to warm us a little bit:

“Sit where the dog sits” my grand-father used to tell my mother, when she was a baby, to explain her where the shadowy part under a tree is… because dogs know.

Driving like sailing

…on one of those beautiful old Citroën’s. Can big modern German leasing cars give us such a pleasure?

Hmmm, maybe it is time for me to sell my old (and somehow polluting… but not too much) Xanthia…
and buy a “green” 500?

Le Bateau ivre

Where does this anchorless boat sail now?

OH! combien de marins, combien de capitaines

Swans facing each other: dancing an aquatic Ζεϊμπέκικο?
Or is it a καρσιλαμάς for 2 lovers?
Happy San Valentino to them…
and to all of you!

Κλάψετε μάτια, κλάψετε

Birds crying on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Or maybe just enjoying the sun of a september afternoon in Athens.… as they simply do not care about the financial problems Greece is facing today.

One of the many cats who have adopted my garden and the gardens of my neighbours as part of their playground, or sometimes battleground…
Oh, he has detected me: he has heard the click of my camera, even if it is not that noisy.
Ma che occhi hanno questi gatti…

Through the clouds

Man has been dreaming of flying for so long.
But “to take the plane is not travelling; it is its negation: it is like asking the tree to pass in one instant from the flower to the fruit…*
* heard on this wonderful radio-program Siti terrestri, marini e celesti, replaced now by Due sulla strada, both with Guidarello and Silvestro Pontani on RAI Radio 3.
Hmmm, RAI is not only girls with bikini…

Structured nature

Funny to see how this lichen only grows at the vertices of those square tiles and (almost) not on all their borders, forming some kind of discrete network on this roof: ℤ2⊂ℝ2.
Even if human actions cannot block nature, they can and they do model it…

Spinaci alla crema

Listen to Δεύτερο online.

Viva zapada!

…as a mexicano-romanian would have said!
Early morning and some snow crystals on the window sill.
