The castle is restored

Work is finished, now we have a castle in the midst of the city again.

The old wooden door has been replaced with a metal one. Easier to clean out graffiti. And best of all, the door is open now!

Inside, there is a nice little library for children. Grandparents inside may look to the castle tower, in a rare sunny day of our gray and damp winter.

There is even a bathroom for visitors, new and clean - I do hope all this lasts. We should have elections more often. 

Not only the castle got a face lift. The old gazebo was cleaned and restored, It has images of Wagner, Bach, Beethoven and Mozart - but only old Richard was lit up when I visited.

Elsewhere in the park there was music. A guy was playing saxo quite well; he was also waiting for some contribution from visitors, I believe. Got him from far away with my normal lens, so this processed blurry image will have to do. Get a Gerry Mulligan track for background.

Close by, someone was playing his guitar, maybe following the saxo, but mostly enjoying the sun. The park is shaping up. 

Thanks for watching. Canon 7 with 50/1.8 lens, FP4+ in Beutler.
