Beauty on a Sunday

I’ve been working in Corel all morning and decided to take a break by doing a jigsaw puzzle [on jigsawplanet.com]. The pic above is the the finished puzzle.

That glorious, circular stair captivated me so much, I went looking for more information. The photo was taken by a New York photographer/travel writer by the name of Vivienne Gucwa. Click the link to see her website – NY Through the Lens. It’s well worth a visit. I definitely enjoyed it. 😀

As for the actual staircase, it’s somewhere in the Museum of Gustav Moreau in Paris. This is a view down through the spiral:

 

Makes me want to hop on a plane and go see it for myself. -sigh-

And here’s the link to the Flickr account  on which I found the pic.

Okay, back to work. I hope you’re all having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

cheers

SBS TV, and the ‘Classical Destinations’ Theme

I’ve recently become an SBS convert so please forgive the proselytizing, but it really does have THE best cooking and travel shows bar none.

‘Classical Destinations’, the program mentioned in the title of this post, is one such travel show, but it has a twist – it takes viewers to locations with strong classical music connotations.

Paul Terracini is the Australia composer/conductor who wrote the theme music for ‘Classical Destinations’. I loved the music so much I went hunting online until I found this video clip. Enjoy this feast for the eyes as well as the ears!

p.s. I’ve added a new category called ‘Music’. I’ll try and gather all the music related posts in the one place.
