Some last bits n pieces. Hope to be back there soon.

This is next to where I lived. Incredible jewel among shit and ruins...

Just 10 pics

I am afraid it will still take some months before I can go down to Bordeaux to make new pictures. My shoulders still prevent me to travel, carrying luggage...
Anyway: new unpublished pics here,

St, André cathedral and Bordeaux blue sky

Why is this very nice, probably late 15th century, house left a ruin?
It is also next to another very nice and rare monument, also left a ruin... Corner of Cours Victor-Hugo and Rue Pilet. A shame, and at the same time the only important negative thing I can think about Bordeaux.

Agriculture fair at Bordeaux Lac.

No idea. And no way taking a better pic.

As usual: a man and a woman.

Walking Rue du Hâ, porch open, me in, took this pic (with again Bordeaux blue sky).
Later once, second porch open too. Saw the whole tower. Search the blog on hâ.

Part of the St. André hospital facade.

Some shop somewhere.

Don't know where this was but: lots and lots of these small jewels in Bordeaux...

Cours d'Albret 91

Bordeaux still life

I should have been in Bordeaux already, making pictures. But I am still being investigated upon -so to say- as for my shoulders. And: much cheaper being operated in The Netherlands in a decent hospital!

Girondins monument (Monument aux Girondins) fountain.

Bistro in front of monument above. Very good place; cheap and good. Forgot the name but its at the corner of Château Trompette road.


Public park, Jardin publique de Bordeaux, Japanese tea.
