Our local environment our local surroundings may seem idyllic and be so serene
we must never be stuck in past sins especially those we haven’t created ourselves
but the historical past, also wounds caused by the cruel and brutal epochs need idyll.
This work nature creates better than anything else, no doubt
so back facing the reminder of how wrong things can go
if we don’t learn from the past, but commit the same mistake again.
Snow-dressed history in the forest of Vosges Mountains, not far from Lac Blanc
about 10,000 people lost their lives in this area during World War One.
With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
this is my version of the travel theme this week “Environment“.
Gare du Strasbourg, a couple of days ago.
Daily prompt “Three Perfect Shots”
Take a subject you’re familiar with and imagine it as three photos in a sequence.
Tackle the subject by describing those three shots.
Our world is moving and the most in our world moves
sometimes it can be hard to figure out in which direction
like these modern trains, so we don’t know which way it’s running before it’s started.
View from an abandoned french fortifications in the Vosges mountains
apparently left alone while the big wide world lying in wait outside.
Alone is not necessarily similar solitude – but do acknowledge, caveman I’ll never be.
“Two possibilities exist, both are equally terrifying.
Either we’re alone in the universe or we aren’t”

Daily prompt “Cut off”
(When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely..?)
Architecture is continually changing as time goes by
lack of maintenance creates two possibilities
restoration or abandonment.
Inspired from Paula’s Thursday’s Special this week “Restoration“
Streets of Strasbourg, a bit rainy and artificial lighting has taken over.
My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
Why only walk, why not walk right in too..?.
There is a huge world hidden behind facades, in Strasbourg too.
Cityscapes seems more closed than landscapes
but isn’t it just an illusion we have created..?
It’s just a world different from the more uncontrollable nature.
Step in, live soccer tonight.
The cathedral, some come for a religion’s sake,
others for enjoying the stunning architecture.
The inside of an abandoned warehouse has tempted creative graffiti artists.
Walk straight into the trolley and the walk becomes longer with fewer steps.
Walked inside Printemps Strasbourg.
Gare du Strasbourg, night atmosphere.
On a february night with water-heavy fog in the streets of Strasbourg
remember to stay focused even though the weather is ‘speculative’ and wet.
Watching high heels on the walk, probably a way of light in the dark.
An alsatian spruce, life even lived well leaves its mark.
