      Thanks! I also liked the rusty colors of statue and balconies.

    Cool shots of the Giger Museum, Lorenzo. Some of his work is unsettling, but there’s no doubt Giger was a visionary.

      Thanks Windy. I found it cute you had a post on your blog about mr. Giger and just the week-end after he died (falling fom his home stairs!) I wento to Gruyere to visit his museum. Paintings and statues inside are really gorgeous. If you come to Switzerland you have to visit Gruyer! Indeed sometimes drugs are sexual contents are explicit but it is part of the beauty of his art.

        Oh, I didn’t know you saw my post, but I really got a kick out of seeing your museum shots, especially since I wrote about Giger. The photos are terrific, and thank you for sharing them. Hope to make the trip one of these days. I’m sure it was pretty amazing to see it all in person. Well done!
