This weeks photo challenge is GREEN. I took this photo in the Swiss Alps (the Braunwald Area), maybe the most relaxing and greenest place I have seen.
This weeks photo challenge is Renewal. We saw this hawk/falcon (?) with it’s prey an afternoon back in Hong Kong. It sat there for a few hours, just staring out in to the air and guarding the smaller bird. Hopefully the little prey was brought back to a nest to feed some younger ones and secure a new generation of this beautiful predator.
This weeks photo challenge is Geometry. My photo is from MACBA (Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art). It has been a while since I went, and what I remember clearly, except for all the skateboarders outside, is the actual architecture of the building, which carries a lot of geometry. Beautiful place.
This weeks Photo Challenge from the Daily Post is: Foreign
Being from Scandinavia and doing business with any North East Asian company will certainly make you notice some cultural differences. One of the moments I remember was the first time visiting a customer in Imabari, Shikoku Island, Japan. Here I was asked to take off my shoes and wear the office slippers. I guess this may happen from time to time in Japan, but this, the first time, was just “interesting” to me.
This weeks challenge from The Daily Post was Silhouette. This is from the beach on lovely Boracay Island, Philippines earlier this year. Such a nice place!
Of course there are various degrees of happiness, and I could have included several photos (in a gallery!) to show different levels of happy. But, after weeks of darkness, rain and wind – the typical fall weather in Norway – we woke up this loveley Saturday morning to see the first signs of the winter. Winter means we will get snow, meaning:
1. It will become less dark
2. It will become less wet (if it is a good winter)
So, for me, today, the first signs of the approaching winter makes me Happy! The photo shows the first “frost” or “rime” (not sure about the correct word to use) with an apple tree in the background, the apple tree still with some yummy apples..
Don’t touch my treat!
