For Christmas Eve, Ma has asked us to post something shiny…I did not want to post a Christmas decoration. So I am taking you in a church, in the Basque Country with its shining chandelier. I wish you all a very merry Christmas.

This week, the subject for MA’s photographic challenge is “lights”. I cannot use an old picture all the time…So here is a street light just starting to shine in a London Street. And we need some light! I am not saying the weather is gloomy and miserable…well yes actually, it is!

This week, we have to take a night time picture for Ma’s challenge..well, I thought it would be better, aesthetically speaking, considering my total inability to take nice picture, to use one taken by Marichéri. Did I already mention that he is from Paris?

This month, Bernie has chosen “écossais”, i.e. a mix of colours like the ones you can find on a Scottish tartan. But it also means Scottish in French. So here is my picture, with a twist…my écossais is not colourful but is definitevely Scottish! I gave you a baby Angus.
Have a nice week everyone!

This week, Ma’ has chosen “history” as a theme. I could not decide between a historic monument or something with a twist…and the twist won. Here is a old, historic writing machine to write nice history novels with!

Last sunny Monday in brown in Bernie’s challenge. It’s not too sunny, but at least I got the colour right with the cathedral’s door in Bath.
Have a nice week everyone!

This week Ma’ is suggesting that we post black and white picture. It has nothing to do with the weather, it stopped raining! Marichéri took lot of wonderful B&W pictures of Paris some years ago, but I already posted a few. So I am taking you to Bordeaux, again. This is the Rohan Palace, which is actually the town hall today. It was built just before the French revolution on top of some medieval ruins for Ferdinand Maximilien Meriadec de Rohan. Not only he had a total disregard for historical ruins which stood in the way of his palace and a very long name, but he was also bishop of Bordeaux, and needed a place to stay, obviously. But after the revolution, his modest little home had a trouble history. It became the revolutionary court of justice (I should have put comas there!), it was used as a holiday home by Napoleon, it even hosted part of the French gouvernement in June 1940. It’s a lot more peaceful taday, and quite a lot of it is open the public.
