weekend pleasures

on a yesterday afternoon walk, when turning around this corner (picture above) we stumbled upon a small gallery (picture below) led by a sweet lady. The garden, or better say the forest that belongs to the ground, is turned into a scultpure garden. There is also a tiny workshop of a sculpture artist which you can see on the right in the above picture.






what really amazes me is the fact that one often finds the best places without searching and secondly this gallery is so outlying and hidden. It is placed at the end of a small street and there is no transit traffic or something like that at all, the street ends in the forest. So people come here by chance or they´ve heared of it´s existence and it works, since 12 years already.
That makes me think of the sentence:
better the first in the country than the second in the city.


in contrast.....great photos of living spaces in the city (New York): Meryl Smith and others at theselby (found through............ hm, forgotten)

Looks like such a neat place. And that photo of your shadows in the spot of light is so nice :)

Ohhh, wie schön zu sehen!
Ein Teil meiner Familie wohnt dort, ein Stückchen durch den Wald und man hat einen wunderbaren Ausblick auf die Talsperre :o)

Ich danke Dir für diese Bilder!

Lieben Gruß
myriam.

How wonderful to stumble upon a magic cottage - I have dreams once or twice a year of getting off a bus and finding myself in some cavernous store with broken toys and musical intstruments. Finding things unexpectely always makes me think of the phrase "Arbre Los Ojos' (Think that's how it's spelled).

That looks like a really relaxing place. After being in a city for so long places like the one in your pictures look really inviting.
