Artist signs at various museums in Paris. They are delightful little things. Someone made a living painting them. Was he on the museum’s pay roll or perhaps an independent contractor? “François, hurry up will you?”

You can find more interpretations of this week’s theme HERE. If you want to see all of my challenge entries, they are HERE.

Endurance: Weekly Photo Challenge

Sometimes I wonder how much really has changed for women. It seems that our lot is just to endure whatever men and powers to be throw at us. It has always been this way and will be so for the unforeseeable future unless we actually start doing something about it.

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘Endurance‘. Rest of the interpretations can be found HERE. My earlier challenge entries are HERE.

Humanity: Weekly Photo Challenge

Humans are rather clever creatures. Eons ago someone figured how to control fire. No more shivering and being afraid in the dark. The darkness could be pushed away! Eons ago someone decided to co-operate with some of the friendlier wolves and now we have dogs! Eons ago they worshipped fat ladies and made dildos! Eons ago they knew how to live!

Oh, how many great things have humans figured out. There must have been first person to use something we would call make-up, after losing a mate to the Urgh in the neighbouring cave. Tools! Did the first hammer user curse as much as we do today after hitting one’s own finger?

All those small discoveries made with the help of large cranium and opposable thumbs became all the fantastic things we call arts and sciences. We truly are a special species among species. There’s just one slight design flaw that ruins it all…

Doggie Dialogue

This summer I visited Paris. Again. One day I was on a walk with my friend and we walked past a florist shop in a fancy ass neighbourhood. At first I thought nothing of it but then I saw these two little cuties:

Two doggies in Paris

I called them in Finnish and they seemed to understand. The owner, however didn’t appreciate it and called them back inside. Our dialogue was cut short but at least I got this cute photo. This is my entry for this week’s photo challenge ‘Dialogue‘. If you are interested, the other interpretations can be found HERE. All my entries, past and present, for the WordPress Photo Challenge are HERE.

Marche des Fiertés, Pride Paris. Hundreds of thousands of people marching for love and equality. What’s not to love? I wrote about the march at a Finnish blog called Tämän Kylän Homopoika and you can read it HERE (if you can read Finnish that is). There are also some more photos if you are interested.
