In order to continue the Maginot Line in the area east of Metz, the French decided to use the strategy of flooding. For this they dammed the rivers and allowed a series of lakes to form. The war is long gone, but the lakes are still there -- a paradise for French and German anglers alike.
This is from the banks of the Saar, where graffiti spraying is condoned, if not actually officially encouraged (2009-03-21). I cannot really do this character justice with my phone camera. I have to take the shots from the other side of the Saar and crop them. But I thought I had to record him for public record before he gets sprayed over. He appears four times and in each scene is equally rapturous about the object in his hand, which we assume must be a pencil.
