storm companion

sturmgesell

and stormy it was… another one from the beach of usedom.

i found sturmgesell’ a bit hard to translate. it definitely means storm companion or maybe rather companion in a storm and that’s fine but the gesell’-part has a quite oldfashioned sound to it and i don’t know how to get this across in english. any suggestions?

edicola

edicola once was a word for a small temple (lat. aedicula). i don’t know whether today’s use of edicola for a kiosk is a nod to the original worshipping of idols that took place in aediculis back then?

serafina e luigi

serafina e luigiserafina and luigi’s awning saved me from dissolving in the heavy rain in porto san giorgio last week. more pictures of that to come ;)

la mer (baltique that is)

i always thought of the baltic sea as a giant bath tub and so i was told in my childhood. so no waves.  i actually have never been to the beaches of the baltic sea until a recent visit to poland. what i saw there was quite far away from taking a relaxing bath. but then again if you put a giant ventilator above the tub you would get close to the state of the the sea i saw.
