Remembered always

There is graffiti, there is street art and then there are tributes like this. A beautiful piece done by Pia Brightman’s partner (Lenny Gould & a friend) back in March 2013. She used to live just around the corner here. And the piece was done in the weekend immediately after her death. I find it…

Boundaries . . . a test

Photo challenge is on boundaries this week. Boundaries are often there for a reason. Others,however, see it as an invitation. A question mark. A test. Here are some which I reckon some of you can identify with. I didn’t even dare to ski up too close to this sign at Val D’isere for fear of…

Change . . . not!

Photo challenge for this week is Change. It says to “show us change in progress.” I instead have opted to show one where change has been halted! Or rather held back a little while . . . This roadside “cobbler” in Hong Kong has probably been here forever and it does not look like he…
