Sometimes I just want to look at something pretty, so that is what I’m sharing this time.
Picture of the Month
When I took the first photo above, I was 17 years old and I didn’t know much at all about taking pictures. Perhaps if I had, I’d have shifted around the fountain until the street creating the sky corridor was lined up with the middle of the main spray.
It wouldn’t have been as interesting and the sea at the bottom of the hill wouldn’t have been visible.
Both photos were taken in 2006 on a day visit to Oslo. (We drove into Norway in the morning and left late afternoon/evening.) The second photo is from Oslo Castle’s garden. Another photo from this time can be found in Picture of the Month — June 2018.
This photo is from a visit to Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I had a great time there, and took some good pictures. More to come later in this series. Look for it in August, 2019 (aka in a few months).
This photo is from January, 2014. I taking a walk with a friend in Nyckelviken, Nacka (suburb to Stockholm, at least that is what I would call it). I had a good time and had a great picture from it.
Christmas, or winter leading into the holiday season, is one of my favorite times of the year. I love Christmas music. I love how I take the time to slow down. I love baking holiday treats. I love lighting candles and all the holiday/winter/Christmas lamps/fairy lights that show up in windows and that I set up around my own home (when I have a home).
Each advent Sunday, I light another candle in my advent candle holder (see picture above). I’ll usually have a fika at the same time, which will usually be a glass of glögg (mulled wine) or tea and some gingerbread cookies.
If I have my advent pause with breakfast, well then, just look at the picture of the kind of breakfast I’d make myself on such a morning. One of the few food pictures I’ll ever share, haha.
Photo taken in 2013, when I held a halloween dinner for some of my close friends when I lived in Stockholm, Sweden.
Picture of the Month is one day early this time to be right on time for halloween. November says hello in a few hours. Next PotM will be on December 1 as usual.
Fall is upon us and here is a pretty fall colored bush against a very black night. Photo taken in 2016, in Insjön, Sweden.
This photo is quintessential Sweden. Sweden have many, many lakes, and forest is also very plentiful. This is from a nature preserve close to my childhood home.
A beautiful place where I can always find calm.
This was taken on a walk in May, 2017.
This throwaway picture came to be because I accidentally hit the “take a photo” button on my camera when I didn’t mean to take a photo. Or something very similar. I never deleted it because the odd angle seemed to create something beautiful with the lines in the picture.
