  1. Good morning, dear readers,
    clicking on the title of this post will take you to "Christmas Time in the City" sung by Mary Chapin Carpenter.

    I wish you a good start into the second week of Advent!

    Yours,
    Merisi

  6. Wow! That blue sky is amazing, and that photo of the church mirrored in the modern building is particularly fabulous.

  9. Beautiful and unique, as always. I am continually amazed (though perhaps it's nothing) at the way architects and builders manage to construct huge buildings that are perfectly true/level/straight. Thus I couldn't help noticing, in your second photo, how the edge of the building holding the reflection is exactly lined up with the edge of the windows in the background.

  10. The crisp blues and imposing architecture serve up an exciting contrast to the humble structures and warm reds of the previous post.
