Monochrome by the bedside

The current view as seen by a patient suffering from bronchitis and/or pneumonia (but hopefully on the mend).



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at Monochrome Weekend.

... the lawn looked like this.

Everyone gets a bit tired at midday.

Reflections of New York from New Jersey

We have just returned from USA (see my former post). While we were there we stayed in an apartment at the 44th floor of this glass tower in Jersey City. The apartment was rented from NYC-JC, a Scandinavian owned company that provides apartments in Jersey City for longer or shorter periods. Highly recommended.

And as you can see it is a fine place for getting photos of reflections.

You get Manhattan both directly and in reflection -

wherever you look (these photos were obviously shot through the windows of the apartment).

This is my contribution to James at Newtown Area Photo's meme called Weekend Reflections. Post a reflection during the week-end, log on to MckLinky via his site - and you're on.

A Wedding in New York

It has been been a bit quiet on this blog for a while, but there is a very good reason for this: We have been away for a while and we have been attending a WEDDING!

And not "any old wedding", but the wedding of our daughter Marie. She got her Kjetil in The Norwegian Seamen's Church in New York last Friday in a ceremony that left no eyes dry - mine not the least.

Since we were in New York, the famous skyline had of course to be included.


PS And nowhere could volcanic any ash be seen...

P is for posts or poles

No, I'm not posting about Poles from Poland but about whether these structures are poles or posts. My practical English is limited so please tell me: Are these structures poles or posts - or something quite different?

PS The phantastic blue sky is not made by any program, but by a careful use of a polarizing filter (although Photoshop has played its part too).

PS2 Yes, the picture was photographed today.
