Belated Europe pix

November 17th, 2006 | Uncategorized

I put together a set of photos on Flickr of some of my adventures in Paris and Brussels last month. For various reasons, as you may recall, I didn’t have my digital camera on this trip. But a couple people kindly sent me shots they’d taken, and I just added some more that I took with a disposable camera. I wish the Flickr slideshow mode would display the photo captions, but I can’t seem to find a way to make that happen.

Oh! Duh. I figured it out. Just click on a photo in the slide show, and you’ll get a slightly smaller version plus the caption. Then you can forward the pix manually, and continue reading their captions.

    Picture @11-what kind of building is that? I’m guessing a cathedral, but it looks kind of mosque-like…

    Also-new glasses, or just the angle of the picture?

    I don’t recognize the cover picture from the French book from inside the book? Do I have to go to France to collect that drawing or is it on the British edition? (er… guess I could check next time I’m in a big enough city!)

  9. mlk says:

    love the cover on the French edition!!

    Jaibe, that drawing is at the end of the chapter that starts with Alison’s dream about the sunset.

    I just have kind of a nerdy comment – you can also see the set on one big page with descriptions in the detail view…

    Nice collection of photos. Hope you’re getting the rest you deserve.

  12. shadocat says:

    Ben – thanks for the link-answers a lot of my questions!

  13. Jaibe says:

    Thanks mlk — I found it! I love how they used it on the French edition.

    By the way, new theory about why Alison’s dad crossed out the bullets & year on the picture of Roy — maybe he was saying Roy was august?

  14. mlk says:

    thanks for sharing your nerdiness, Ben. it’s nice to have Alison’s commentary . . .

    did you get to see mannekin-pis (the statue of the little boy peeing) in belgium?

  16. The Cat Herder says:

    That one photo at the outdoor cafe? Did our dear Alison find her male doppelganger in Europe? The resemblance is striking.

    I love Paris. I’m so jealous!

    Ho no !
    I discoverded Alison’s work with Fun home, one of the best 2006’s books I read.
    En aparté, as a dyke, it’s really not easy to find good novels or comics in France …
    And now I see that you came in France in October and I missed you ?! I hope that you will come again, or that I’ll be able to see you in the US.
