I always thought keeping concrete wet was crucial to the process, even on land. I suppose then, that this is merely a continuation of your maffia crime scene theme you cliffhung on us last year. (Yeah, I did turn it into a verb there. Seems all the rage these days. To bokeh or not to bokeh? When in Denmark, do as the romans do. Bokeh? Wasn't that Japanese for a rotten brain?)

Yeah, I enjoyed that little series because apart from having a sense of direction, it also gave me a sense of purpose.

And that's the most difficult thing to find in photography.

You're mistaken about bokeh, though: it's what happens after rotten sushi: you end up spending the rest of the night on your knees, bokehing down the pan. And to think of all the fun destroyed, and regret created, in the olden days when people automatically and mistakenly blamed it on the booze!

Je ne regrette rien
J'ai tout oubliť...

For some reason, this looks American to me, though it's actually the outskirts of Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca.

The sculpture was made in honour of two pilots of one of those firefighter aircraft that came down in the local bay, hardly a klick from home. Brave guys. They save a lot of people and their dreams, too.

Hah, I know (electronically) a guy who used to travel around with a piano. And a dog. He even took both on international trips, with the piano shipped ahead of time. He's "retired" now. Maybe the guy in your photos is an imitator, or maybe this is just an example of "concept convergence."  :D

Two plants of Mountain Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla montana (Hoppe) Rchb.) at Piani di Barra, an ancient Ostrogothic settlement on Monte Barro, at Lake Como. The first one, really tiny, had just begun to bloom.

I love the second one a lot (the first shot is also nice). The Monte Barro info is also very interesting, thanks for sharing.
