Surrounded by art

Evening view from favorite cafe through the window
– to the rainy street full of “disturbing” lights.

Art is meant to disturb, science reassures

Inspired by this week theme “Art Unexpected” in the “Friendly Friday”.
The Sandy Chronicles

Happens from time to time – no need looking for art, the art will find you.?

It is an old saying that “we must expect the unexpected” we hear it again and again.
maybe it is particularly important when we travel – because it is logical
that “foreigners” have other approaches than us who comes traveling
so travel with an open mind, which most do
we have no wish to have our backyard in the backpack.

Unexpectedly for me, it was the first time I stood at a small alsatian waterway
and suddenly saw a large barge filled with happy people on the tour
my first thought was “what about depth of water”
but the barges are flat bottom and the canals deeper than we probably think.

Experience – it’s getting a little bit more than expected, so the unexpected must be bonus.

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
Where’s my backpack?
this is my version of the travel theme this week “Unexpected“.

Enjoy the ride


Some want their life like a strictly scheduled travel as a non-surprising railway track
while others expect the unexpected on the very trafficed highway called the real life.

Freedom always follows with commitment and responsibility.

I’m not a big fan of patterns – I like the unexpected
(James Purefoy – english actor)

The weekly photo challenge – this theme of the week is “Unexpected“.
