This incredible, bronze statue sits in a nondescript square in a town outside of Toulouse, France.  The sculpture is the remarkable creation of French artist Bruno Catalano.  His sculptures are detailed and leave a great deal to the imagination, often causing individuals to wonder if the work, or life we pack into our briefcases robs us of the very essence of our humanity?  Catalano’s deep, thought – provoking works of art inspire this weeks photo challenge – transmogrify.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Door

As part of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Door, here is one we stumbled upon in the tranquil hilltop town, Cordes-Sur-Ciel in the region of Midi-Pyrenees, France.  This is a nice quite town, at least when we visited in April.

Photo of the Week – June 26th

A recent (quick) trip to Paris, afforded me 90 minutes to see a few sights before a long meeting.  The weather was very cooperative.  Here is a view of the Eiffel Tower from The Trocadero.  Soon to post: Tips relating to Business Travel and taking advantage of some free time, even it it is only an hour.


The “Photo of the Week” on More 2 Explore is taken from our collection of travel photos throughout the past eight–years (of living abroad) and is typically from the same month for which it is posted. Be sure to click “follow” to see more photos each week! (usually posts on Friday.)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

Just over the border from Switzerland, in Leymen, France, lies the ruine of Landskrone Castle.  The castle accessible by tram 11, makes for a beautiful day hike, a wonderful opportunity for guests or a lovely frolic through times past.  For more information and images of Landskrone, we invite you to another post.

Nice Light
