Needs Paint

The realtor must have had a sense of humor, or had never actually seen the property.

I was reminded of the wonderful movie, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948) staring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy as a couple tired of living in Manhattan who buy a run down house in Connecticut, only to find out they are in over their heads. Melvin Douglas plays the role of the “suffering” architect who tries to give everybody what they want. Don Brodie in the role of the painter knows a thing or two about handling a client without them knowing it, and Louise Beavers, the family cook who saves the day. Cary and Myrna at their best.

D-Day 2017 – Ouistreham – Normandy

Black And White Photography, Joerg, Photography


I took this picture on the 6th of June 2016 (D-Day)
at Ouistreham Beach – Normandy (Sword Beach). I crossed the channel with the night ferry from Portsmouth (UK) and arrived in France at 6:00 in the morning. I walked down to Pegasus Bridge with a 30 kg Backpack and returned to the Beach in the afternoon, where I talked to some French Soldiers (Commandos maritime), while they got prepared for the ceremony. This photo is dedicated to Coffee at night, running for Cigarettes and my Chief Nurse Major E.L.Giles, you saved my life on a 3rd of January, but sometimes it still hurts.
Thanks for 37 years of friendship and not forgetting … XXX

Slept Late

I slept here.

Vacations. The luxury of sleeping in late, and the guilt of knowing you’re wasting time. What to do, what to do? Today I slept late.

I’m not quite sure why I find lone trees so interesting. Is it somehow symbolic of the lone individual? Do I imagine Gary Cooper in “High Noon”, standing alone against the gang of outlaws? Or maybe Alan Ladd in “Shane”? I give away my age when I reference these two classic movies, but isn’t there something heroic in human lore about the rugged individual standing alone against the world? All I know is that whenever I see one of these old, gnarly trees that show the evidence of hardships, I feel strangely proud of them, and sad at the same time.

I learned from friends that this tree was finally felled by a storm. I drove back up to see for myself, and there standing by the side of the road, I wept.
