Showcase


One of the last night spent in Vienna, my adoption city for 4 months in 1987…as usual, I was coming back from the coffee, where I had a few pints, spent the night drinking, playing chess, I was probably holding alcohol better than my friends-opponent (chess speaking…) because I won a lot of game coming back from behind, after a last one with those friends, the bar owner Raimund, the coffee bear his name Raimund International, the waiter Andy, his girl friend, Christine, , and a few others, I was coming back to my temporary place for those months, a nice pension held by Khaled and his wife, a nice polish woman, can’t remember her name, anyhow, not important, I saw that store showcase, and make a night shot with my faithful friend at that time, my beloved Pentax K-1000, and I was probably thinking, I will make a painting of that, it’s been close to 30 years, still a project…for my older days to come…:) The problem I think I have too many projects for the number of old days left…so I guess I have to get back working hard on my paintings and other things…pastel, photos, illustrations….:) and getting a new faithful friend, don’t know if it will be a Nikon, Canon or another type of numeric camera…

une de mes dernières soirées passées à Vienne, voilà bien longtemps, mai 1987….comme d’habitude je revenais de mon café préféré du coin, Raimund International, pris quelques pintes, joué aux échecs avec quelques habitués de la place, et le serveur, pris une dernière en compagnie du patron Raimund, je m’en retournais au bed & breakfast qui m’a servi de logement pendant les quatre mois passés là-bas, et cette vitrine capta mon attention, mon appareil-photo, jamais trop loin de moi dans ces années là, mon fidèle ami, un pentax K-1000, croqua cette image nocturne d’une vitrine, que je voyais en talbleau, c’était voilà bientôt 30 ans de cela, un jour ce sera un tableau, on doit se garder des projets pour nos vieux jours, pense que j’ai déjà plus de projets que de vieux jours devant moi…:), j’imagine que je dois me dire qu’il est temps de me remettre au boulot, peindre, dessiner, souriller….avec ma tablette et me trouver un nouvel ami, un Nikon, Canon ou autre appareil numérique de meilleure qualité…:)
