Life through the Lens (13 February 2022)

I’ve been sharing my own photos now for eighteen months so I thought the end of the year was a good time to call it a day.

If you wish, you can find the published photos by following the tag “LifeLens” on the main page of my site, or by hitting this link.

I thought I’d just round off the series by re-presenting a handful of my favourites.

This fountain was in a car-free town called Riquewihr, in Alsace, France. It “feels” German, and not surprising – it’s right on the border. I’m not a big fan, normally, of pretzels, but the fresh pretzels here were incredible.

There are lots of vineyards around the town. So far north, the specialty is white, sparkling wine, and Alsace produces a wine called crémant. Find a good one and it’s more delicious than champagne, at a fraction of the price!

Again, the detail of this fountain blows me away.


  1. Good pic. But why ‘call it a day’ on sharing your photos? Just curious.

    Total non sequitur, but I’ve just noticed that you appear to have ‘Mystery Person’ set in your site’s discussion settings. Good call; makes the ‘likers-who-may-be-shall-we-say-just-a-tad-disingenuous’ really stand out. I’ve had ‘Wavatar’ set for years, but I’ve just taken a leaf out of your book and switched to ‘Mystery Person’ too 🙂

    • For one, There were only so many photos I considered decent.
      For two, these images are generally hi-res, so were hitting my disk allocation.

      I set all this up years ago, I want to encourage comments in general, so don’t pre-moderate, but I figured that a genuine commenter would at least have a WP account. That side of things doesn’t cost with WP, so anyone genuine, there’s no impediment.
