The carnival carries on in Lucerne until the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The history goes back to the fifteenth century and the guilds in the city. The city is alive with parades, music, costumes and revelry. Photographing the people and gatherings is overwhelming but fun and colourful.
One of the designs of Donald Wexler. It is one of the Case Studies Houses made of steel. Socially conscious architects, including Wexler, provided designs for houses that could be constructed quickly for the for the post war population.

On January 7th, 2018 I started a week of exploring and photographing mid century modern houses in several Palm Springs neighbourhoods. This week has been spent focusing on the influence of mid Century architecture in Palm Springs. We are reading books on photography and creativity. Being inspired and following intuition are part of the daily process. Turning off social media and enjoying the moment of the world around us is a benefit and every day is unfolding with cameras in hand.
