Photo suite 174 -- train trip

One of the things I love about Europe is train trips -- this one from Germany to Czech Republic and back.

Photo suite 173 -- at Churchill's grave

During our recent trip to Europe we visited Winston Churchill's grave -- not in Westminster Abbey or any other majestic venue, but in the tiny churchyard at Bladon.  The contrast between the greatness of the man and the calm and modest venue was profound and moving.

PS  My late father was a huge fan of Churchill, since the two of them collaborated in winning World War 2.  Today I celebrate not only winning World War 2 but my parents' wedding anniversary, from 1941.  Here's to Dad and Mom, and all the other dads and moms who helped Churchill win the war.

Photo suite 172 -- sidewalk stains

Last year I exchanged photos of "found art" every week with my art pal Uta Lenk (click here to check them all out).  Apparently I spend a lot of time walking with my eyes on my feet, because I found lots of "art" on the sidewalk.

Photo suite 171 -- Siena Duomo underfoot

The fabulous cathedral in Siena is famous for the elaborate tiling of its pillars and floors.  With a nod to my friend Margaret Cooter, who last year did a big project documenting people walking in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, here are people walking in the Duomo.  Happy Easter!
