“Und der Haifisch, der hat Zähne…”

A famous song text by Bertold Brecht. One of the English translations is, “Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear…” — I am still wondering though if somebody might have bought it if this post’s title had been “Been diving…” — And I just realize since this is a marine animal it might be a good choice for Paula’s Thursday’s Special.

Beynac. Part One

A walk up to the castle of Beynac (Périgord). During this year’s trip to France I was often intrigued by the way roofs, pigeonaires and chimneys seemed to define space in very particular ways, and I tried to capture something of what I thought I understood in these pictures.

Part two will take you inside the castle where I fooled with the available light…

Since the ascent to the castle was indeed a walk, and because our path was lined by traces of the past, I seize the opportunity to participate in two great challenges: Jo’s Monday Walks and Thursday’s Special at Paula’s. Please check them out; both Paula and Jo have regular challenges, and both of them are great hosts.
