Here are some more pictures of Geneva Lake called Lac Léman.
You might be wondering why there are two types (scanned & digital) of pictures on my blog. The reason is very simple.
When I reached Geneva I had an analog camera with me (I am a big fan of still photography, specially B & W photography). The quality of digital pictures are no match to these.
However, the ease of use and expenses involved are the main advantages of having a digital one. So, after sometime I also bought my first digicam, an expensive one and used it for 3-4 months. Then a colleague borrowed it for two days and lost it ! I decided not to buy another one for at least a year. Hence back to analog camera. Some places I visited twice so you’ll have mix of analog & digital pictures. Enjoy !! As always click on the picture for an enlarged view.
This was a ship always standing near the bridge. I think it must have been an old ship. Every weekend it was booked by locals to host some party.. full with music and wine till wee hours. If I get I’ll show you some pictures of nightlife on this ship. I am sure I have them somewhere. We were never invited though. :((
The lake is full of these lovely swans. They are just not scared of humans and eat anything that is offered to them like bread, croissants, fruits etc. In the background you can see people going towards Jet d’eau.
The water jet. It was always fun going near it as even from a distance, the sky touching showers always make you wet. If you enlarge the picture, you can see hundreds of sail boats parked near jet area. Also, can you see buildings in the back ground ? My apartment was in one of them.
Green on the left side is a huge park.
Standing tall and alone. The light house in the lake.
Quiet wintry evenings by the lake.
