All the women of Mucha’s Slav Epic (Prague, Czech Republic)

If you pass by Prague, do not miss Mucha’s Slav Epic at the Museum of Modern and contemporary Art. Aphonse Mucha was one of the major Art Nouveau representative: his art applied to the Epic history of the Slav people is unbeatable. Additionally, photography is allowed!

Chronicles of Bodensee, Konstanz, Germany

At the first sunny day, lake Constance (Bodensee) gets filled with boats, sails, ferries and people, sailors for a day or for the whole season. I had a very interesting afternoon at the shores of Constance harbor, observing tourists of every nationality getting their moment of happiness on the lake.

Les femmes de Neuchâtel par Nikon D800 and 70-200 mm VR-II à la Fête des vendanges de Neuchâtel

DSC_8313

Viens-tu du ciel profond ou sors-tu de l’abîme,
O Beauté? ton regard, infernal et divin,

DSC_8508

Verse confusément le bienfait et le crime,
Et l’on peut pour cela te comparer au vin.

DSC_8611

Tu contiens dans ton oeil le couchant et l’aurore;
Tu répands des parfums comme un soir orageux;

DSC_8722

Tes baisers sont un philtre et ta bouche une amphore
Qui font le héros lâche et l’enfant courageux.

DSC_8780

Sors-tu du gouffre noir ou descends-tu des astres?
Le Destin charmé suit tes jupons comme un chien;

DSC_8821

Tu sèmes au hasard la joie et les désastres,
Et tu gouvernes tout et ne réponds de rien.

DSC_8825

De Satan ou de Dieu, qu’importe? Ange ou Sirène,
Qu’importe, si tu rends, — fée aux yeux de velours,

DSC_8875

Rythme, parfum, lueur, ô mon unique reine! —
L’univers moins hideux et les instants moins lourds?
