Going Forward

So now that not only has the Google+ death sentence (for consumers) been moved forward to April but the API is also due to close in the next 90 days. This has meant that I have had to somewhat accelerate my plans to move somewhere else.

My plan has always been to simply return to my own blog. I've no interest in the likes of MeWe or PlusPora or whatever newfangled social network is trending these days. However I'm in the process of getting a new domain and for practical reasons I won't be able to go ahead with that until the new year. But I've wrangled together a new theme for my website. It's not amazing but it will work for me and in due course I will share all the links for you guys to continue following me over there. Whether I will continue Friday pictures will depend on all of you I suppose but I hope I will.

Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this rose from my garden

Sammon Puolustus (The Defense of the Sampo) – Alexis Gallen-Kallela, 1896

Sammon Puolustus (The Defense of the Sampo) – Alexis Gallen-Kallela, 1896

Although the original painting is currently housed in the Turku Art Museum, this one here is a reproduction of the Finnish master's masterpiece on the dome of the Finnish National Museum.

Gallen-Kallela is one of my favourite painters, I love how he mixes epic stories with a clean style which is full of colours but has almost a comic-book feel to it.

Back in a box

Can you actually drown in a sea of boxes? I guess I will soon find out. The shelves are slowly emptying while boxes are filling up faster than we can find new ones to fill up.

At least summer is here for the most part, let's hope it remains that way for the next couple of months.

Chapelle de la Misericorde – Caen

This mostly ruined 13th century church is only a stone-throw away from Caen Castle and looking at it from the ramparts you'd be forgiven to think that this was still a fully built church as it appears in one piece amongst the surrounding buildings (including the hospital where I was born) but the reality is this church was mostly destroyed during the June and July 1944 bombings.

Nowadays it is used by members of the Anglican church.
