Akira, Nice contrast between the light of the beautiful sky and that of the harshly lit gas station.

Thank you, Tom.  I like the very contrast, too!

yesterday I started a little redecoration effort. These nice books stood behind other furniture, now we can use them again!

geranium pyrenaicum?

It looks like a G. pyrenaicum there's als a white flowering variety, the G. molle looks similar but different foliage anyway.
What is lovely too and more dainty, if you are into wild plants, is Erodium cicutarium which seems to flower profusely this year, (dry condtitions).

Thanks Fons for the confirmation!
There are so many flowers I "know", but I don't know their name. So I just got me a little booklet for identification (Kosmos, "Was blüht denn da") :)

Thanks a lot Akira  ;)
While being shooting for my paid work of documenting architecture jurys at my school, I escape boredom by finding small tidbits and other leftovers of the jury process, to train in the "Zen and the classical Df maintenance " !!!  8)

I'm not sure about the variety of the flower but am certain I like the color, composition and exposure. Nicely done.

Thanks Frank.

I also enjoy seeing your bookshelves. I did the same project myself three years ago to find a home for the boxes of books that up to that time I had no place for. What can be better than shelves full of your favorite books?
