a rundown

Highly idiosyncratic summary of where I've been and what I've seen:



Long-legged flies tasting tablecloths in Triberg, Germany. The houseflies here have longer legs and it unnerves me.



A run of Playmobil-looking sculptures along the highways between Lyon and Marseilles. Bright elves engaged in acrobatics for our amusement. What for?



Graded clouds sloping into valleys in Vorarlberg. They look like gigantic arrows pointing at hotels and bars.



Citroens and Mercedes trucks plugging along mountain roads.



A roomful of helicopter pilots in heavy red coveralls drinking espressos at a helicopter hangar high up in the Alps.



My time's up.
