I Am the Happy Victim Of Books.” Image Credit: I found this image via FlashDecor, but seeing  as i’m pretty sure that’s Karl Lagerfield and the font looks vaguely familiar, I really think the source is more along Vogue […]

Some photos you are not going to want to miss!

February 27, 2011

Sometimes photographs speak more than a thousand words, they speak of sounds and smells too…. I love being behind the camera but Kevin Kelly’s technical skill is off the charts! I have always considered myself a people photographer – people I can do, emotions, moment….but landscapes – I am usually better of buying a postcard! […]

August 18, 2010

After my post last week on Barbara Nicolosi’s chapter in For the Beauty of the Church, I’ve been thinking about Politics and art, and specifically Art which has a political aspect. My post on Transpositions this week is titled: Le Mur pour la […]

Street Art: L’horloge de Saint Lazare

August 10, 2010

The sculpture is entitled “L’heure pour tous” or “Time for all” in English, and is by Arman.The idea is that when you look at a clock on the side, you can not see the time! Except, of course, at the Gare Saint Lazare in Paris. I’m fascinated by the way that the birds have defecated […]
