Ses derniers beaux jours

René Magritte, "Les derniers beaux jours", Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris

J'ai été ému par cet homme seul, vouté, amaigri, se déplaçant avec difficulté et ayant perdu ses cheveux certainement à cause d'une maladie, qui était venu voir cette exposition. Son arrêt devant ce tableau au titre tellement en rapport a été ce qui a motivé ma photo.

His last good days

I was moved by this lonely man, stooped, thin, moving with difficulty and having lost his hair certainly because of an illness, who had come to see this exhibition. His stop in front of this painting with such a related title was what motivated my photo.

pastures of plenty in Saga Arashiyama, Kyoto

From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan

Flag of JP

This is Saga which lies on the Western edge of Kyoto city. Actually, it's impossible to go any further west as this is where the city meets the mountains. This area of the city is known as a popular tourist attraction but not this part and that's precisely why I love it. A short distance from the tourist traps is this large area of farm land which from spring through to the end of summer is teeming with life. This scene shows golden rice fields that will likely be harvested in the coming days. What I particularly love though is the red spider lily that the Japanese call "higanbana" which translates as "equinox flower". They pop up around the rice fields at the time of the equinox and their toxicity keeps vermin away, but despite this they are extremely beautiful. I've been trying to capture the "perfect" higanbana shot for many years (as a click on the higanbana tag below will attest to) but it has so far eluded me. Perhaps next year...

Hamer greeting

Ethiopia

Flag of ET

Rarely, if ever, do you see Hamer people of any gender engaging in any displays of affection, beyond hand shaking. So it was extraordinary to see two women approach each other and kiss, a long involved kiss. Most likely explanatin to my mind is that they were family members who hadn't seen each other for some time and were brought together by the bull-jumping ceremony. A greeting rather than anything else.

Sadly this steamer was being refurbished while we were in Queenstown, otherwise we would have done a cruise. The TSS Earnslaw is a 1912 Edwardian twin screw steamer based at Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand. It is one of the oldest tourist attractions in Central Otago, and the only remaining commercial passenger-carrying coal-fired steamship in the southern hemisphere

Garbage City Cairo

Garbage City, Egypt

Flag of EG

Manshiyat Naser is a neighborhood outside of Mokattam Mountain in southeast Cairo. It is also known as Garbage City. A settlement of mostly coptic Christian people called the Zaraeeb live here. They collect garbage from the city of Cairo and bring it back to this place to sort through the discarded items.

The Zaraeeb's system has been studied for its efficiency which allows them to survive and profit from this work, as well as recycling and reusing more than 80% of the city's waste.

Despite their important role in the city of Cairo, this mostly Coptic community is often misjudged and looked down upon.

Technically not a great shot, I know.
I was set up with my 400mm checking out vegetation for close up wrens, when in the lake .... this Darter bird caught a fish (badly, I dare say)
Sadly, my settings were all wrong. Caught the bird anyway, but .... technically flawed but an interesting shot all the same.

Warning display

Ethiopia

Flag of ET

On a hike in the high, craggy Semien Mountain range, Ethiopia, I came across a troupe of Gelada apes. They are more commonly known as Bleeding Heart Monkeys, due to the heart shaped breast on the large males. Although they look like baboons, they are a species of old world monkeys. I strolled slowly through the grass alongside these large apes as they grazed on the grass and flowers. Although aware of my presence, they largely ignored me, somewhat like sheep and cows in the same paddock. This large male was threatening another younger male who approached too close to one of his females. A truly scary display! It was an experience I will never forget.

heaven on earth

Zakynthos, Greece

Flag of GR

Many persons go there to see the amazing view , so we went also there .The Mizitres are two huge rock cones flanked by a deserted island rising from the blue sea and signing the beginning of the Kerì Caves.
Keri is famous for nearby Keri cliffs, rising over 300 m from the Ionian Sea. It took me a lot of courage because there is no fence and if you take one step to far you go 300 m down . but i made it :)
