A Kind of Magic

Les Grands Voisins - St Vincent de Paul

Last night’s challenge was magic. I decided to show some pictures from the “Grands Voisins” (Big Neighbours) project. An alternative project for the benefit of the homeless and offering services such as the “ressourcerie” a shop where people give books, furniture and various knick-knacks. Even garments.

The project is located in a derelict hospital. It attracts quite a few visitors. At the moment, there is a kind of Magic about this place.

Artists have redecorated certain parts of the compound. This corner of the derelict hospital is now very very green. Magic.

Artists and inventors design weird machines like this one. Magic.

A weird platform in the shape of a boat. Magic.

And this weird contraption made of plastic bottles. above it a solar panel absorbs light during the day. At night it turns into a streetlamp. Magic.

Inside the café, kegs of beer. All magic. It’s a bit of a shame though that they will turn this place into a real-estate development area.
