Before we left towards our drive to Big Sur we had a nice american breakfast at Joe’s Place in Paso Robles. The owner is a patriot, by the look of the memorabilia and photos on the walls.. Also lot of old movie stars pictures- Ladies room had pictures of old leading men. I did not visit the men’s room, but I heard lovely ladies covered the walls. We do not have these kind of diners/ breakfast places in Finland so this was a rare opportunity to do this kind of breakfast. I was going to skip this part, but my husband let me understand that this should be in the “diary” of our trip.
I took notice the past week of lighting in few of the places we visited as the topic this week gor CB&W is lighting. Hope you enjoy them.
My oh my, laziness!
I have been busy at work and the result from that is, that I have been lazy at night. Watching television, I know it’s old fashioned, I have to correct myself, watching Netflix, same but different 🙂
Well, today I visited a store called Country White, looking for a parting gift. My boss is moving on, I can’t say I’m happy about it, as she has been a good one. Life goes on… Champagne Coolers was the thing I was looking for and I found one. So mission accomplished. I found something to take photos of.
Give me light

The church was originally designed in the late 15th century by an unknown “Espoo master” and built between 1485 and 1490 under his supervision. The only remaining parts of the medieval church are the eastern and western parts of the nave. The weapons room was removed between 1804 and 1806 and certain other parts of the church, including the original sacristy, were taken apart between 1821 and 1823 when the building was converted into a more spacious cruciform church.
The vaults and walls of the older parts of the cathedral are decorated with murals, largely painted in the 1510s, that depict both biblical scenes and events in the daily life of the people. The paintings were covered in the 18th century as they were thought to be “crude and superstitious” but uncovered again and conserved during renovations in 1931. The current campanile of the cathedral was completed in 1767 and its top part was redone between 1868 and 1869.( Wikipedia)
