The Jetty in Versoix at night
This picture was taken while having to kill some time in Versoix, a small town at the border of the canton of Geneva. Versoix is located on Lake Geneva (Or Lac Léman) and the picture was taken just after sunset with the blues really vibrant and string. The jetty is the one use by ships stopping on their way to Geneva Or Lausanne.

Pink chairs in the autumn sun.
This is one of my first pictures I uploaded to Instagram. It was taken in 2015 outside of CERN close to the tram station where I was waiting for the tram to go to work. The chairs were apparently abandoned and put outside for someone to collect, or to be thrown in the trash.
It was early in the morning, and the sun was shining nice and warm, highlighting the colours of the foliage as well as the pink paint that was coming off slowly from the chairs after having withstood the rain, the wind, and the sun for several years.
How the chairs got there, I have no idea. They certainly are not the usual furniture found at a particle accelerator laboratory. Whatever made them end up in this place, what caught my eye was the combination of colours from the decaying leaves and from the crumbling paint of the chairs in the still warm autumn sun.
