The other roll from Lyon. August 2007.

Cla at the book market.

Jardin Rosa-Mir, La Croix-Rousse. The extraordinary work of a single man.

L’Odéon, a small theatre next to the bigger Roman Theatre.
This two theatres are on the hill of Fourvière.

Hi dear owner, if you ever think of selling your home, contact me.

Ruins of a roman spa in the backyard… not bad.

Wait wait wait wait, NOW!

Matthieu Bore Quartet, at the Péristyle.

The Roman Theatre. I used to go there in the morning and study math.
Slightly better than the Rhône as a place to study math, but most of the times I studied the theatre itself.


The Roman Theatre, again. What can I say? I like it.

The picture is awful, I shot too quickly when I was still moving, but I did because I feared I could miss the moment. I was making photos around the theatre and when the men saw me, one of them pulled up his shirt and started dancing. There were them working (and dancing) and me laughing and clapping hands. The main act for that day at the theatre!

A better picture, with a part of the Musée Gallo-Romain emerging from the slope. By the way, the museum was built by Bernard Zehrfuss (maybe more famous for its pavillion at La Défense), I visited it and I must say its a great architecture.

From Lyon… c’est tout.


More photos from “metteteli sparsi” soon. In the meanwhile, photos of Lyon, August 2007.


Pont Wilson on the Rhône. The Rhône is a good place to study math if you don’t want to learn it.



Entrance more than 3m above the ground. Now that’s a barrier.

Side of the church, where you can find the real entrance.

One of my favourite places.

Pioneers on many levels, they made a masterpiece of concrete and a social experiment. (hey Franz, C.AAA.!)



Skaters and bikers along the Rhône, jumping all day (and night) long.




All those steps always make me think: why people pay for gyms?

It may not be so easy to find and it may not be famous (a lot of people in Lyon ignore its existence), but it’s a roman amphitheatre. I like the instant view of four ages of construction from foreground to background. Visions roll in my mind when I find places like this one.

In spite of my crappy picture Monsieur Nouvel did a good job at the Opera.

Stompin’ Whities at the Péristyle.
