Due to the bad weather and heavy snowfall yesterday no post was ready for all of you visiting my blog early in the morning. We celebrated my sister´s birthday before she started her 16 days journey to Peru and Machu Picchu, and after a great dinner and good wine at Cafe Christiania, my posting had to be published late this Saturday morning. Hopefully Brit will send us some photos from South America for later postings.
Yesterday I published the decorations found outside on walls. The +20 cm wet snow yesterday made me go indoor, but there is always great motives for a camera at these walls too.
This one is from the Shanghai Municipal History Museum downstairs at Oriental Pearl Tower. The painting is remarkable, making different view dependent of which angle you choose when looking at it.But you do not need to go to the far east to find intriguing wall decorations. In a very good restaurant- La Roue d’Or in Brussels, Belgium, a great imitation or variation of Magritte´s Bowler paintings covers one of the walls. No better place for Moules Frites
In Berlin, Germany at Hackescher Markt (a cultural centre and famous for its nightlife) close to the Museumsinsel and Berliner Dom you may find a cafe with this painting at the wall.
But do not forget to look further up. The ceilings can also hide beautiful artworks like this in the music pavilion in Montecatini Terme, Italy. If you climb up to Montecatini Alto be not surprised to be served on plates like this.Have a nice weekend and bring your camera wherever you go on the weekend photo safari.
