Hope your weekend was good, have a great start in the new week.
I did a lot of housew**k today, as some long lost relations are coming
to visit me tomorrow, and I didn't want things to be as messy
as they sometimes are....
And I baked some cookies, so I was busy.
For Art Journal Journey, Gill's lovely theme of Nature's wonders,
I have a hybrid piece. The background is from Gecko Galz, and I added a butterfly, some colour and some paper scraps and crackle to give more interest. Then I digitally added the photo of the young crow that I took recently:
And I have some more photos from my walk along the Rhine last week. Here I am looking back towards the Altstadt and bridges of Düsseldorf, you can see the wonky Church spire and the Post Office Tower in the background, and some of the party and restaurant ships.
This is taken looking towards where I live, which is not yet in sight - there's still a long way to go:
I loved these rusty pylons where ships can dock:
This ship is named after Heinrich Heine, the great German poet who was born in Düsseldorf's Altstadt. We also have an Avenue and a university named after him. But he left Germany to live in France, can't say I blame him....
This is the Yacht Club, there are lots of nice boats moored here. But my fave has to be the boat selling Döner (Kebabs)
I took a short cut through the North Park, as it is less far to walk that way than along the Rhine, and it was looking more and more like rain....
I used to work near here, so it was nice to have a quick visit:
After that I walked as quickly as I could over the last couple of miles, and just
got back as the rain started.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
