Black crust....


..was a common view in the cities of Europe due to the combustion of fossil fuels. Today the air quality is so much better that buildings and statues covered with a black crust are a rarity.

Warning: Do not leave your seat during a show. You may not find your way back ! A bit too much design....and less function. A complicated building indeed.

Boomerang....

Laurent Lafitte and Mélanie Laurent

Life is a boomerang and secrets and lies are a bit like submersed cork.... 
A good film by François Fravat.

Copenhagen, Koncerthuset, May 13, 2016

One day this gentleman will be missed....until then, his music still has good as ever; clever, melodic, intricate, and always with a touch of elegance and distance. Best in show: Avonmore, Virginia Plain, Jealous Guy, Oh Yeah, Take a Chance with Me....and all the rest.

See you soon again Mr. Ferry & Co...!
