1. Hello everybody !!!

    I really like automn and all its colours. It is a nice season of harvest and also of separating what will be kept and what will be discarded. Nature is beautiful wearing her dress of multiple colours that she keeps on changing every day.

    And I am really happy about this video. Since a while, I wanted to make a video on autumn and also on the Jardin Botanique, the Botanical Garden in Brussels. I had made a first video on the Botanical Garden a while back. It was a kind of a walk through it. Then I made a first exploration on Autumn Colours this week-end, again with footage from the Jardin Botanique.

    And now, finally, here is what I more or less really had in mind. Thanks for all your reactions and comments and especially to Jon's last comment on Autumn Colours that finally set me free and triggered this one to happen.

    Plenty of good Autumn energies and inspirations to all of you !!!


    PS: The music is an extract of Antonio Vivaldi's Spring. And it is Yehudi Menuhin on the violin. When I made the video, I thought the music was an extract from Autumn as it evokes so nicely the leaves whirling in the wind ... Just found out after that the music is exactly opposite to the visual content ... Well, also very nice ... and opens up other ways to looking at spring and autumn ;-). Enjoy !!!

  4. Hello everybody !!!

    Yesterday, I met a friend in Paris. I didn't have much time, so we thought we would just take a coffee somewhere. But as I am off to China soon, I thought, let's catch a little glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. Once there, my friend saw the boats that are cruising on the Seine. She had always wanted to go and so had I ... but somehow we had never done it.

    So we decided to go and had a wonderful - and talkative - cruise on the Seine.

    Fortunately, I had my photo camera with me to immortalize this beautiful, unexpected, but long overdue, experience :-)

    Good spring inspirations and energies from Paris and the Seine to all of you !!!


    PS: the song is "Les copains d'abord" (Friends First) by Georges Brassens.

  5. Hello everybody !!!

    Yesterday, I had a few appointments in Paris. With one, I was finished quicker than expected. So I had some time to walk down the Champs Élysées to the Louvre to catch a métro there. And as always, I had my little photo camera with me. I really do love it :-)

    Reaching the Louvre, I met a very happy duck - the only visitor of the Louvre Aquapark ;-) Probably he was also a bit early for his date. So he enjoyed himself, then did some public relations ... you know, he was the only duck all around - that makes you quite a star with all the tourists coming from all over the world ... Or who knows, maybe the tourists came to see him and just added a little visit to the Louvre as they were already there ??

    Anyway, the duck interacted with his audience, posed and got pictures taken ... but finally he went to meet his date. And I felt very privileged as he then decided to introduce me to his fiancée and both came to greet me :-)

    So here some greetings of the Duck at the Louvre ... and of his fiancée !!!

    Good inspirations to all of you !!!


    PS: the song is "O Pato" by João Gilberto
