Dandelions keep popping up ...

The yellow colour of the dandelion symbolizes spring to me. I know many lawn-owners hate it, but I adore it. And it can't be stopped. It is everywhere. It even grows out of rust.

Locks and fences can't keep it in.

Just mind that you look carefully before you sit down ...

PS Have a nice week-end!

The Norwegian Rope Trick ...

You may have heard of the Indian Rope Trick. Very advanced magic. This is much simpler. All you need is:

  • A piece of rope
  • Some shallow water, preferably from a fjord
  • A jetty to crouch on
  • A camera with a circular polarizing filter mounted on the lens
  • Some suitable software for finishing touches.
That is all - the trick can now be performed ...

Have a nice weekend!

Not the Titanic

One hundred years ago RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank. This is not an attempt to mark the centenary, but judging from many of the "in-depth" programs being sent these days, this old pleasure craft currently undergoing spring repairs might have been equally successful - or maybe even more.

Or "Easter Lily" as we call it in Norway. And for once it lived up to its name.

April is April

No, it is not a nuclear bomb hitting Bergen, nor a hurricane. It is just a last greeting from King Winter who yesterday evening sent us this shower of snow .
