Snow

And so it began to snow here too.
This photo was made in January 2006. I hope that it doesn't snow as much as that time.

Musical sunset

There is nothing is more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little - the book of Nature.

Calendar

The idea was given to me some time ago from Vele/Ivi. So I realized a calendar with some of my photos and some aphorism. Who wants to download, print and hang in his-her room, or watch for curiosity, click here.

FIRST ROSE
Paris, 1867: Springtime, and the International Exhibition is about to start. A few days before the grand opening a child’s body is recovered from the Seine. When the mother is charged with murder she refutes the allegation and claims to have left her eight-month-old son at Lariboisière hospital, but the nurses deny all knowledge. At first her lawyer is convinced of her guilt, yet over time his investigation uncovers some puzzling inconsistencies. Suddenly powerful government agents start to take an interest in this seemingly straightforward case. More than a century later a young woman is working in a Paris library on the archives of a long-forgotten criminal trial. She is watched by Bruno, who yearns to make her acquaintance. He falls in love with her and little by little she opens up and tells him her story.
Paris, in March 1992. What kind of mystery surrounds the young woman, who, in a Paris library, tries to research a forgotten case from the 19th century? Bruno who is secretly watching Gaetane, longing to make her acquaintance, falls in love with her. Only with hesitation, does she allow him to participate in her story.
«A breathtaking historical thriller, a gripping mix of fact and fiction.» (Focus)
