A lofty Perch

The crow’s perch is the head of the statue of Jeanne d’Arc in Rouen, France – what intrigued me is how the statue seems to look straight up at the crow. I waited a long time, but the crow never did look down … . :-).

Don’t stir up the Wind’s Bride

Die Windsbraut

This photo comes from my archives, and is of a sculpture in Flensburg called Die Windsbraut. Literally, that’s “the wind’s bride”, but it’s also sometimes translated as “the tempest”, as Windsbraut is also the name of a type of whirlwind, and/or the elemental spirit of said whirlwind. If you use the term poetically, can also mean a female of a wild, stormy temperament.

Won’t you shine a light, the one-handed angel said on that cloudy day

This photo and the one before were taken in Mainz, in the cemetary next to the University. I spent the weekend in Mainz at the GAAS (German Association for American Studies) conference (more about which later this week, I think), and spent one of the breaks wandering around the cemetary, resting my brain and taking in some peace and quiet.

Now I need to go sleep – my alarm is going to ring at 3:30am, since my colleague M and I will try to observe the transit of Venus (fingers crossed for a cloudless sky until 6am, please – after that it can rain all week and I promise I won’t mind :-) ).
