The Nièvre is a more quiet region in the heart of France, a lot of agriculture, meadows, small villages and forgotten cities while their centres are swept clear due to the everywhere spreading shopping-malls on the outskirts of such towns. But there an ideal place is waiting in the Summer’s heat, meaning the cool shadow of an old tree, for listening to the birds and dreaming the other stories of life. Now time has come to move faster to far away horizons. See you soon again.

I like travelling through the diverse realities and cultures of this world not only as a tourist. Nature, history of ancient sites or creative works are fascinating me however also abandoned places or ordinary things can be just magical and amazing. The multiple aspects and rich diversity of our blue planet need to be however nourished and protected. Please be so kind to respect that all texts, graphics or photos in this blog are protected by copyright. Thank you in advance for appreciation and understanding.


  1. Lovely peaceful shots, though your remarks about dying town centres, as modern development envelopes the outskirts hit home. We lived in such a community in France, and it was hard to watch the old centre dying as modern lotissements and supermarkets cluttered the edges. Good luck with your travels.

    1. Thank you very much for adding your personal experience on these more bizarre urban developments to be observed not only there. To go on a real market outside of buildings is always much more exciting and pleasant. So have a nice summer!

    1. Glad you like it, I will now make a small break in posting here as the analog world is my real home which sometimes needs simply some more attention. Take care on your further excursions!


      1. “an ideal place is waiting in the Summer’s heat, meaning the cool shadow of an old tree, for listening to the birds and dreaming” This phrase prompted me to use “pastoral’ in my comment. Perhaps I have been thinking of Beethoven’s sixth symphony. Sorry for have caused a temporary irritation! Peter
