No time for this while scrolling down the Reader? Only interested in photographs? I know, I know, I have mostly been sharing photographs, not music. But Ani DiFranco’s ‘Albacore’ is such a moving piece of art that I thought I’d impose this on you 😉 . Maybe one has to be in a similar emotional state to be able to relate to this song.

It’s a song about love and about feeling at peace; it’s a calm song, best consumed late at night with a nice glass of vino rosso. Yeah, a cup of tea works, too.

Oh wait! Lemme add a photograph to make this post a little more eye-catching and appealing to the photo-crowd. Maybe I can coax them into having a quick listen as well. Or not. The below photograph was taken on Manhattan’s lower west side.

Salut, fellow bloggers and friends. This is another episode of my Street Art series – this time, focusing on Paris’ picturesque artists quarter Montmartre, located in the 18th arrondissement. Needless to say, Paris is full of interesting historic sights, art and jaw-dropping architecture. And, yes, Montmartre was the part of town where such famous artists as Renoir, Van Gogh, Picasso and Dali used to hang out. However, I have taken a particular interest in the small pieces of contemporary art on the walls of the French capital. When I climbed up the steep stairs of the Montmartre – the famous Sacré Coeur dominating the scene – I discovered numerous little Street Art gems on the way.


Montmartre is worth a visit for manifold reasons. For further tourism-related info on the area, please check out some of the articles below. I really enjoyed it there Рapart from the pickpockets who usually attempt to distract you by asking for donations for the deaf-mutes etc Рand can only recommend spending a little more time there than just for a visit to the famous Sacr̩ Coeur. Amusez-vous!
