St Paul’s from Tate Modern


London looking so fine today, and hardly a breath of wind.

Pantà de Sau


According to Wikipedia:

Sau Reservoir is a reservoir located on the Ter River, near Vilanova de Sau, Catalonia, Spain. The dam was completed in 1962, creating a reservoir with a storage capacity of 151.3 hm³ that covered the former town of Sant Romà de Sau.  The Church of Sant Romà is still visible when the water level is low.

From this altitude I could not tell whether the water level was low.

La vent t’a emporté


Pendant que la marée monte
Et que chacun refait ses comptes
J’emmène au creux de mon ombre
Des poussières de toi
Le vent les portera
Tout disparaîtra mais
Le vent nous portera

In the words of the song.

Totem pole


An example of cultural appropriation? In this instance from the culture of the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest to the children of Nanterre, West of Paris.

In the movies


I passed this movie set about an hour ago, on the way to Gare Du Nord in Paris. It seemed interesting but there was not much action taking place.  Everyone except the woman with the pole appeared to be waiting for something.
