“DON’T LIMIT A CHILD TO YOUR OWN LEARNING,
FOR HE WAS BORN IN ANOTHER TIME.”

Rabindranath Tagore

Ganymede is a satellite of Jupiter in our solar system and in Greek mythology he was a divine hero whose homeland was Troy.
I love this statue, which is standing at the beginning of Lake Zurich (SWITZERLAND), at Burkliplatz. It was a rainy day and I had to keep wiping the drops of rain from my lens. My hands were freezing with the cold winter rain but then the lovely evening dusk came – and here is my Ganymede!!
It was a special moment and memory for me because I had driven by here so many times when I worked and lived in Zurich.

I use a Lumix panasonic point and shoot camera

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.

  • Thanks Richard, it was a rainy day in March this year – in fact the whole week there was rainy so I didn’t catch blue skies or green leaves
