Paris, la ville lumière. After my bike journey from Amsterdam to Paris, I spent one week in the city, staying at different friends and exploring the various arrondissements. One of the most impressive museums that I visited was, of course, the Louvre.
Blogging about the Louvre is an impossible task, one can maybe select a few things and write about them, like I already did once with The Fall of Icarus. This time around, I’d like to write a bit about one of the pieces in there which captured me the most: the Code of Hammurabi.
Middelburg is the sleepy capital of Zeeland, the region best known for having given its name to New Zealand. I’ve cycled there during my journey to Paris. This is a nice shot of the cathedral of Middelburg, which is another Dutch town where you can never be sure about what’s crooked, the houses or the towers.
Picasso painted Girl With a Mandolin in 1910. I just think it’s a really, really cool painting.
PS: I could have used an “official” picture of this painting. It would have probably been of a better quality. I just like to use these pics that I took myself. I don’t know, it feels like more authentic and less of a schoolbook.
Italy, around Christmas 2012. It was night and cold. My dad got a flat tire and my sister had just got a new camera with many built-in photo filters. I got to stand in the middle of the street alerting approaching cars. Not an unforgettable Christmas, but much better than the previous one.
Thanks sister for the picture.
