Renovation A 23.08 (20)

I have been surrounded by machines over the past weeks, so what could be better than to take some photos. This crane was parked in my back yard for a morning.

Weissenstein 23.08 (74)

And these are the pylons belonging to our local mountain railway cars where the cables are all hooked up.

Hedgehog Ornament

And I saw this little hedgehog in the local store, just asking for a photo.

Schaffhausen 06.08 (155)

If I take a train ride then the camera comes as well and if I am on a train I love to take photos of the graffiti that are sprayed on the walls by the railway lines. This was the Zürich-Schaffhausen rail connection.

Schaffhausen 06.08 (123)

This caught my eye on the road in Schaffhausen. Where was the rest of the fish – who knows. I think it was just a clever design.

Schaffhausen 06.08 (115)

And this building was in the middle of a field. I do not have a clue what it is, some sort of weather station perhaps, but it breaks up the monotony.

Road to Langendorf 21.07 (2)

There is a story by the brothers Grimm, The Bremen Town Musician, where a mixture of animals decide to make music. I think the local garden center was showing his animals as a sort of publicity trick. There is a mule, a dog, a snail, a chicken and I think I can also see the model of a rabbit – an odd mixture. They always follow us with their eyes when we drive past.

River Aar 13.07 (7)

A strange construction at the top of a scaffolding (not our scaffolding this time).

Toys

A parking space for the kids.

Solothurn 1407 (21)

I think this poor bird was really feeling down when I saw him sitting in the shop window.

Forgotten Pumpkin 09.o07.2017

The things you see as I was tsking a walk around our estate. Perhaps it was a photographer’s eye looking for something completely different. But someone had decided that this was defnitely not a pumpkin fit to be turned into a coach for Cinderella. At least the slug was happy to find it.

Solothurn 1407 (2)

A book case on the side of the river bank in Solothurn. It was not even locked but open for everyone. You need a book to read?  Help yourself. You have a book you no longer need, then put it in the book case. It is there for everyone in town.

Solothurn 08.07 (25)

I visited Solothurn, Switzerland, our local town yesterday morning. It was at least a year since I had the time to look around and take time for photos. I just had to take this guy’s photo, he was definitely an odd ball.

Renovation 06.07 (4)

You can work that one out for yourself. We live in a building zone at the moment and when I looked up into the scaffolding last week, I saw two heads looking down. One even had a flame thrower in his hand.

Road to Langendorf 03.07 (4)

I love benches, I know where each one is to find in my area. They are a walking necessity for my cane and I. I loved the way the sun was playing with this one.

Road to Langendorf 23.06 (6)

One of those street sculptures I pass every time we drive to the supermarket. It is situated outside a bank.

Journey to Langendorf 30.06 (7)

I liked the way the shadow of the traffic light was caught in the mirror also with a reflection of the mirror – an odd ball 🙂

Wheat 24.06.2017

An UFO landed in a wheatfield and left skid marks behind. That is my explanation and I am sticking to it.
