Today is Tea Stands for Tuesday over at Elizabeth's blog, so I
will be sharing some of my food and drink adventures later in this post, and I would like to welcome all of the T Gang.
For Art Journal Journey, Back to school, I have another hybrid piece. The background was painted and textured, the kiddies were taken from a 'back to school' prospect here:
And I would like to remind you that our 'children' challenge at TIOT is still running for another week, so hope to see YOU there!
A lot of people asked me about Erika, and how her life went on, and I have another journal page about her scheduled for Thursday, so will tell more then.
Here are the rest of the photos taken in Duisburg on Saturday. This is the Mercator Fountain, named after Gerhard Mercator, the cartographer, who died there in 1594. Here you can find out more about him:
This was taken on the Kuhstrasse - Cow street. After passing the fountain above, you go through Kuhtor - cow gate, where I suppose the animals were driven along back in the old days. Today it's a busy market, with lots of stalls, street artists, and of course, lots of people milling about. This man was playing wonderful music on his piano::
The lady in white:
A balance act, which was very fascinating. The one underneath was holding the other one just by his shoe. I watched for 5 minutes, and they never moved or wobbled - they must have iron muscles:
And Niki de Saint Phalle's wonderful 'Lifesaver' Fountain was the main reason
for going there. It is HUGE, look at the lady in the background:
Here I have been taking my usual walks, which often end up on the Market Place, even when it's raining:
But I like it better when it's sunny:
And need I say? My drink is always cappuccino. I don't even need to speak - when they see me, they bring me a cup!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
