Taken in the early evening on 10th October. If we are lucky we have quite a few wonderful sunsets in Autumn, which compete with the Autumn colours. We have a saying in Switzerland for such an evening sky; translated it would mean that “Santa is now baking the Christmas delights”.

One lonely man leaves his work place on the building site. I watched the men build the scaffolding that encased the complete block almost 7 months ago and in two weeks it will all be dismantled as if it was never there.

Some travel in a pram, but most are walking, and they all have a purpose. Being a pedestrian can sometimes be interesting, it depends on who you meet. The photo was taken in the Romford Shopping Center, greater London, England.

Windows: What do you see through yours? My answer is “just don’t ask” because at the moment it can get very complicated. Over the past 6-7 months we have been under siege from various building tribes. They have bored, chiselled and scraped. They have removed stuff I did not even know we had, known as cladding, and replaced it again. We have been scraped, hammered and nailed. I have had the pleasure of watching the whole process with my camera (900 photos) so I have a selection. The present situation is scaffolding in front of my windows, front and back.
The photo shows Nino doing something to my wall. I do not know what it was, but it seemed he needed a mask to do it. Nino has now gone, his job is finished, but he stayed for many months. We are now being painted, and everyone is silently watching the paint drying. And then we will have peace – we hope.

If you live surrounded by builders for half a year, then you can be glad if you are not layered between the sheets of steel scaffolding.

Last week I took a ride in our mountain cable car, built a few years ago. Of course the view from the top of the mountain was spectacular, but I was more interested in taking photos of the structure of the cables of the suspension of the car. I took this photo as we were leaving the exit at the top of the mountain for the descent.
