The Gypsophila Series

“I’ve been so many places in my life and time I’ve sung a lot of songs I’ve made some mad rhymes I’ve acted out my life in stages With ten thousand people watching But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you You taught me precious secrets Of a true love, you wanted nothing You came out in front and I was hiding Now I’m so much better And if my words don’t come together Listen to theRead more

Fly Me

Today kids and I went, with friends of us, for the first time to the Botanic Gardens of Utrecht University. There are so much things to say about this place and so much things to photograph that one visit and one post on this blog would not be enough. I could resume it to one word, wonderful and I could add an other one, peaceful. Here are photos of some of the wonderful butterflies you can see in their butterfliesRead more

And the point is, to live everything

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.

“I wish I knew how It would feel to be free I wish I could break All the chains holding me” “Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky How sweet it would be If I found I could fly I’d soar to the sun And look down at the sea And I sing ’cause I know How it feels to be free.” Lyrics Nina Simone Photography all rights reserved Carole ReyRead more

Thanks for the memory, a day at the University Museum Utrecht

Two weeks ago on a bright morning, hubby, kids and I went to Utrecht to participate to the “family festival” that was organised by the University Museum of Utrecht . We cherish this place a lot, our oldest son had his eight years birthday party there two years ago and once in a while we go there to visit their new exhibitions. Kids love it and so do we. But this time we spent a bit of time inside the museumRead more

Pure Love

“For a long time, I thought that the role of the artist was to shake the public. Today, I want to offer him on stage what the world, that became so hard, doesn’t give him anymore: moments of pure love.” Pina Bausch Photography all rights reserved Carole ReyRead more
