Next Week or La Semaine Prochaine

A photograph of Gustave Caillebotte taken in 1892 by his brother,  Martial Caillebotte. Its tenderness takes my breath away.

Of this I can promise you, the week ahead will be full of surprises. Much like last week, but completely different. Not one post was planned.

On my calendar tomorrow is a visit to the Musée Jacquemart-André to see the exhibit of the Caillebotte brothers. Gustave Caillebotte has always been one of my favorite painters, but I didn't know his brother, Martial, was an extraordinary photographer.

I'm very excited.

Other probable subjects may include, but may not, or something more interesting may occur -- life is full of surprises after all. . .

1.) The pictures in my camera will be transferred to the computer and will result at some point in an On-the-Street post.

2.) Straw shoes and other miscellany from my notebook.

3.) News & Views

4.) This & That

And that's all she wrote.

Have a lovely Sunday.

Weather report from these parts: sweater necessary, but sunny -- in case you were wondering. . .

I'm so bummed that we weren't aware of the Caillebotte exhibit until we'd returned home! Hope you enjoy it. the J-A is such a nice museum, not overwhelmingly large.

Hi Tish,

Just wanted to stop by for a visit and say hello. I LOVE vintage photographs especially of two-footed and four-footed friends.

You might enjoy my last "story" on Heavenly Minded & Earthly Good.

All my best,
Ruben
