Excellent scene and processing. What was harvested?

OT, but I've spent a few evenings watching back numbers of the French cop drama: Engrenages (Spirals). It's quite a raw series, and if it represents Paris, then glad to be living in a hick town on an island in the Med!  However, it confirmed a growing suspicion I have held for a while: the French can't speak French. The only people who speak French properly are British school marms and fellow students of the day. We understood one another perfectly. It must be something to do with the Common Market.

You should pay a visit to Quebec: my French is poor but more than non-existent, yet what the Québécois speak is unrecognizable to me.  :)

One of my all-time favorite films is Les Ripoux, from 1984 (title sanitized in English as "My New Partner"), a dark cop comedy starring the fab (and prolific) hounddog-faced Philippe Noiret. Ripoux —>Pourris. I still whistle the film's signature melodic phrase at least a couple times per week.

Superb Brian. Good seeing.

Don't know her, either :(


Perfect Leiter mindset; told you he never let's go once you let him in.

From this afternoon's trail walk: a threesome.

(In the '80s I worked with a young woman from Paraguay named Leidy.)

A gate. Inside there is the Balukian Institute, which gives money to charitable causes and occasionally hosts exhibitions...

Funny. My French is good enough for about one word in five, but I think I understood a bit of the joke.

Another one from yesterday's walk. Features trees but is not a treesome.  :D

That's quite lovely; great shapes and colour.

Look, if you pretend that the motif on the right's a dandelion, then you've got your Fats Domino triplets! Artistic licence, you know.
(Just until you can pick your geetar again, of course.)

There was a joke?

All I can say is that the girl should listen to Cajun music... 'twould be nice to see how she and it get along. It definitely wouldn't be mistaken for anything other than a French-based sound - I think. As the Louisiana ones came down from L'Acadie in the first place...

She's got a happy wee face, and I love that backlighting to bits.

Understand it? Only the caption!

Hehe, I did have a dandelion (gone to seed) in mind.  :)

Might try some brief guitaring tonight. Always been fond of triplet strums: Pete Townshend, donchaknow.

Well, thanks, this shot is ok, it's just not what I was after ... I thought I would come into denser mist, and dawn/before sunrise. But the sun was up and too warm for mist, already. I totally underestimated the amount of traffic at that time, normally I don't drive that early ... lost 30 Minutes on the road. Was a nice walk never the less, few more shots on flickr, see below, if anyone's interested. Thanks again!
