We have a violin builder in our town of Solothurn. His window is full of violins in all sizes, but the photos show more my reflection than the actual violin. One of these days I will walk into the shop and ask if I can take a few photos. Anyhow over the entrance to the shop he proudly displays his trade mark of the end piece of a violin.
Due to the renovation work being done on the facade of our building where we live, we now have our own, almost, private staircase. It was fitted up today, but when it was finished it had a metal door and with a lock. No-one is allowed in except for the builders. The staircase continues to the roof of our building.
We have had cold unfriendly rainy weather over the last week, and in the heights of the Jura it snowed. We were on the way to the supermarket this morning and I only had my mobile telephone camera with me, but risked a couple of shots from the car of the snow capped mountains.
