  5. Coming to visit you virtually after ages and like the way your blog looks.
    Love the pictures too especially the first and last one. The shadows in the last one and the sepia tones create a nice mood. And the treatment in the first is just perfect suggesting a period look. Is that a museum?

  6. APARNA: Thanks so much! It is not a museum, but a real farm... Such scenes are still visible in certain parts of Switzerland. ;-P

  14. I absolutely love the first photo. It is what the small town in the Alps are all about, grass grazing cows, their milk, and the cheese made with it. Lovely containers let to dry in the sun. I hope this old craft will never disappear.

    I love the new look of your blog. I want to change my template, the space for the post text is too small and the pictures can't be added extra large. I wish I were more web site savy.
