Am trying new material in Uferkunst: wood.
My teacher says I need better wood.
Why did he give me the first one ...?
Well, it is a test, anyway.
Artsy ideas everywhere.
Well, well, well, would you recognize in which city
this lonely building is still standing?
In the middle of this huge building site, in the middle of the city.
Any ideas ... ?
Here another hint:
last year, or a year before there were umbrellas hanging here.
This year these swings.
Must say the umbrellas were more impressive.
And easier to make photos of.
My last and final tip: where are we in this pic???
Yes: in Luxembourg.
This pic was taken from the new panorama lift
which takes you from the city down to Pfaffenthal valley.
THIs lift project seems to belong to the never ending building projects:
Luxemburger Wort wrote 2014:
2009 wurde mit dem Bau des Pfaffenthal-Aufzugs begonnen,
fertiggestellt werden sollte er bis Herbst 2011.
Durch den Konkurs des ersten Bauunternehmens
herrschte zwischen August 2011 und Oktober 2012
kompletter Stillstand auf der Baustelle.
Doch bereits viel früher, zu Beginn der Bauarbeiten,
stießen die Verantwortlichen auf Probleme,
mit denen sie nicht gerechnet hatten.
„Die Felsen, in die wir die Anker hineinbohrten,
sind durch die unterschiedlichen Stein- und Sandschichten t
eilweise instabil und so war es nicht möglich,
die Stabilisationsarbeiten wie anfangs geplant durchzuführen.
Bei den Bohrungen traten bereits nach sieben Metern
die ersten Schwierigkeiten auf.
Recognize the red bridge? We use to live close to it.
Now it also is under construction, it's been made wider
as they are building a tramline from the city to Kirchberg.
Maybe until the airport, who knows.
Further infos you'll find in German and French in here:
People living in Pfaffenthal seem to like the lift project.
Yes, Luxembourgish is a bit of a funny language.
Cutting board, as simple as this.
Made in Luxembourg.
Here Dusty, the pony that our niece was riding on Saturday.
Did you realize that horses have so many different "hair cuts"?
Horses ... never were my thing.
Before you can get on the saddle
there is so much dirty work to be done.
Did not stay until the riding lesson was done,
who knows what they have to clean afterwards.
And look at this radio, wow,
for me its all dust, sand and bad smell in the stalls.
Horseback riding is also expensive.
I always was a low maintenance person.
You may think whatever you want of Saarbrücken,
but they do have often interesting street parties.
Like the Nauwieser summer feast.
There they perform loud punk music.
Punk rock (or simply punk) is a rock music genre
that developed between 1974 and 1976 in the United States,
United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in garage rock
and other forms of what is now known as protopunk music,
punk rock bands rejected perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock.
Punk bands typically use short or fast-paced songs,
with hard-edged melodies and singing styles,
stripped-down instrumentation, and often political,
anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic;
many bands self-produced recordings and distributed
them through informal channels.
