Cumil the Sewer Worker

Cumil the Sewer Worker has become one of Bratislavia, Slovakias most famous statues   located in the old town district.  He was installed in 1997 along with other statues to provide fun and art to the post Communist -era.

He sits right in the middle of the sidewalk near a corner, you can not miss him.  He has been known however to cause more than a few unaware pedestrians to take a tumble over him.

Street Art/Graffiti

The first Wednesday of a month Leanne Cole a photographer from Australia has a new Monochrome Challenge in her Blog The Photographer’s Mentor,

The theme this month is Street Art/Graffiti.  I found my contribution in Europe.  A very old original Street Art.




Several towns we visited during our River Cruise in 2016 had umbrellas strung overhead between buildings casting shadows on the small lanes as we passed underneath.  I can’t remember where this photo was taken, but it was a beautiful day and the umbrellas were a luscious shade of yellow, a beautiful contrast to the bright blue sky with a hint of clouds.  Switching to Black and White brought out the shadows and details of the display.



The Carlyle

The Carlyle, a 39 story luxury condo in the Mill district of Minneapolis, was built in 2007.  Units start at $350,000 to over $4 million offering impressive views of downtown along with 5 star amenities.  The historic Stone Arch Bridge, built in 1883 over the Mississippi River, offers additional interest to the scene.  Something new and something old.

Papa Lemur

Back in May of last year I posted a photo of a Mother Lemur with a baby.  There were several males in the “Conspiracy of Lemurs”, yes a group is called Conspiracy, that I was able to photograph.  They sit upright either on the ground or like this one in a tree.  I find them quite comical to watch.  The device around its neck is a transmitter that all adults wear so the facility can keep track of where they are in the Conservation area.
