Amateur photographer for more than 50 years, still thinking it´s a life-time learning and finding it more and more interesting all the time. (091115)
about my blog
My ambition is to post one picture at least once a week (in the beginning), some lyrics( almost every time), and maybe some music (now and then). (091115)
about The Lille Connections - a triptych project
On a study trip to Germany and France in September 2009 I visited Lille for a couple of days. I found an interesting city with many contrasts- for example the old and the new regarding city planning and architecture.
Lille is also part in an interesting regional cooperation: Eurométropole Lille-Kortrijk-Tournai, wich was one of our object of study. The extremly good communication is also a great advantage for Lille thanks to the TGV:s ('high-speed train'): less than an hour to Paris, a little more than an hour and a half to London and around half an hour to Brussels!
Triptych I: The pictures are taken at Gare Lille Europe and on the subway station at Gare Lille Flandre.
Triptych II: An old facade in the city center and two modern buildings near Gare Lille Europe.
Triptych III: A street in the old center and a modern square in the new parts of Lille.
Triptych IV: Young people in old town, older people near the modern center.
Triptych V: Cafés in old town.
Triptych 6: Highway and TGV-station at modern center. (100103-10)
about The Prague Fragments
In this series I plan to post pictures from Prague, one of my most beloved cities in the world, from four decades- the sixties (as a child with my parents), the seventies (as a university student), the nineties and the last decade (2000s).
More to come...(here are some earlier posted pictures from Prague: Cafe Slavial, Vaclavske Namesti, Old Town Square). (100216))
