Still a Beatle

I saw the TV concert of Paul McCartney with orchestra doing songs from his Kisses on the Bottom album, a handful of carefully chosen evergreen covers and a couple of new songs of his composed in the same style. What stood out the most was what a delicate singer he can be.

Kosice Closeups

I was in Kosice, Slovakia, for an aikido seminar. Before it started, I had a chance to stroll around the city with my camera. As usual, I looked more for details than scenery. I wonder how long I will keep that up.
