I’d like to streamline and possibly further improve how and what I put on line. This year I hope to separate my blog from the portfolios. Also, I am going to simplify the marking of successive entries, resorting to a simple numbering with the post # and year to which it belongs. This is post  # 40/2015

I find the formula of posting two images together quite rewarding, so I’ll try to stick to that as often as possible, but at times perhaps a single strong image will suffice.

Spring is coming to Cote d’Azur, and I can’t wait when the sea is going to warm up enough to go swimming, and see people staying outdoors most of the day, like this lady, eagerly catching springtime sun on the bench.

The music below is one of my favourite recordings of Bill Evans, with Eddie Gomez on bass. It is a metamorphosis of melancholy into hope, like melting snow which exposes green shoots of new life.
