I am in the process of trying to reboot my exhibition career. In the past I have participated in five exhibitions and am hoping to participate in a two man show this autumn with a friend in the Pittsburgh area. I am thinking of limiting my part of the exhibition to display work that was captured at a decisive moment. This is a slide show of some of the current candidates. Of course this could be entirely different by show time.
One of the joys of cruising on a river is sitting on the veranda watching life pass by at an enjoyable pace. Sometimes the boat travels slow and you can see a beautiful vantage point on the land from the lazy river. This taken on the Rhine River near Koblentz Germany while cruising on the Viking Longboat Hiln. .
We stayed at the Hotel Bristol in Wien (Vienna) which is literally steps away from the Karlsplatz Metro Station. On a rainy day we ducked into the station to avoid the rain. There is a shopping mall and cafes underground where we had breakfast, bought a hat and strolled under the street to emerge in Karlsplatz park.
The rain had stopped and the view was beautiful as we strolled through Vienna.
For a city that was almost bombed out of existence, Cologne (Koln) has a historic sense of humor. The old city hall has been restored including the statue at its base of a man mooning the tax collector. The late Gothic style tower has an impressive 130 stone statues and the famous “Platzjabbeck”. This is a an ugly human male face that sticks its tongue out when the tower clock strikes the hour.
I have published a few times about the smartest dog I have ever owned and that was our Border Collie: Deuce. After Deuce died I printed this quartet of images recorded during the same session. I didn’t like it enough to publish it back then but my wife loved it and took it to her classroom at school.
Long forgotten it reappeared yesterday and it made me sentimental for the ol boy. So here is Deuce when he was young.
I have published over ten posts on the city of München (Munich) in Bavaria. It is a beautiful vibrant and historic city. It is the location of many historic events and has wonderful buildings, churches and has the largest Glockenspiel in the world. Here are some outtakes from our most recent trip.
