“TO DANCE IS TO BE IN TUNE WITH THE STEPS OF LIFE.”

maalanyc Sasha Azevedo

This is one of the cobbled streets in ‘The Niederdorf’, which is the old part of Zurich , Switzerland – it is where artists’, poets, writers and the ‘unconventional types’ relax and seem to congregate in busy outdoor bohemian cafes and resturants. I lived there in my student room when I was at Zurich University. It was a short walk up the hill to the University – Happy days!! I just love Zurich!

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.

    Beautiful capture. The old buildings and tiny streets are so picturesque. I’m not surprised you loved it there!

  • thanks Zoe!! my lap top and this new PC computer seem to be showing different contrasts in colour – does this seem too yellow to you?

    I actually thought that the yellow tone was an effect that you’d deliberately used! (I did wonder where my comment went to before :D). In it’s own right, for an antique effect I would say the yellow’s okay. Now I know I’m curious as to what the original looks like.

  • I’ll let you know if I change the picture and put it back in its natural ‘hue’ HA!

    You’re not the only one, Charmiene. We used to drive down to shop at Zürich Airport now and then! They had a great grocery store! I love these back alleys!

  • did you live in Zurich too? I Love all those shops at Zurich airport, when I was living there though they didn’t have any of that – just the airport.

    No, we lived in the Black Forest of Germany for eight years, only a couple of hours from Zürich.

  • That’s lovely the Black Forest – they did a lovely sour cherry juice!

    And Black Forest cake TO DIE FOR! With Kirschwasser, cherries and more whipped cream than your average herd of cows could produce at one sitting!
