The old shed by the seaside

Ageing with dignity

Shot Wednesday on the small island of Algerøy, west of Bergen, Norway.

Polarized reflection

Do you want your reflections with a polarization filter -

or without?

B is for Bryggen in Bergen By day and By night

To those who were Born in Bergen I don't have to say any more.

For those who were not, here is a UNESCO-link.

It felt like spring ...

The snow has gone and the sun is shining through the fog.

A drop of water against the blue sky


Or the sky in a drop of water

Maybe just a drop of water on a twig

Even a brave catkin is trying to come forth.

Yes, I know it is not spring yet. It just felt like it.

Z is for Zulu

My Z-photo this time is for Zulu, but not for the proud people of Southern Africa, which I ought to have done. Instead it is for a small speedboat that in my opinion should have been called Zebra. I found this boat in September 2010, but I have saved it for this occasion. One can't waste a good Z!

Hanging head

The winter in our parts has been a bit on and off, with everything from very cold and much snow to mild rain and no snow. At the moment it is somewhere in between: Rain/sleet, temperature slightly above zero, very icy roads and pavements. And a new record for broken bones.

No wonder that we are doing as this left-over hip I found this morning:
hanging with our collective heads.

Y is for Yankee Youngsters

Yankee Youngsters at Ellis Island - what do they Yonder see? Maybe back to New York.

The Magic of 2011

What is this, has something disturbed our sun in the new year? Has some ring of power given us a sign that all is not well with our old friend in the sky? Or is it my mediocre photography that has offended some of the powers that be? And at one of my favourite photo haunts too.

No, don't be afraid. The New Year has not turned my head completely. It is just the effect of a circular polarizing filter pointed straight at the sun - for fun.
