CFFC: Lights

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lights

If there were no lights in the world, we would not be able to see something of it. At least not at night. So, here we go with artificial lights!

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Slippery

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Slippery

This week’s photo challenge is about being slippery…and my photos are from our last trip to Iceland some years ago. A tour to the hot springs and Geysirs had me almost breaking my legs, arms and camera. Everything was covered in ice and icicles. And nothing to help you walk safely.

The rope rails were impossible and there was no sand in sight. My husband fell twice but nothing was broken. A day to remember.

 

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Surprise

Surprise is the least I can say about these examples! This weeks Tuesday challenge was easily filled….with lovely surprises from my past.

Walking in a park in Rome some years ago, I really had to look twice, or maybe four times…because these cats seemed to have special seats on exactly this bench. And they did not move even if I hauled out a camera…

Some days my Totti got a short visit from his daughter, Belezza. Totti is a very calm and considerate dog, but his face when Belezza performs some of her youthful tricks…

Then a fond memory from traveling with my students to Madrid…We visited a market, where things unseen and unheard of, never seen the likes of…turned up. One of my young girls just had to see and feel if this thing was real…

Thursday’s Special: Traces of The Past Y4-07

Paula, at Lost in Translation, asks us again to find traces of the past.

In Lofoten this summer, we experienced what is said to be the oldest and most authentic fishing village (fiskevær) there is – Nusfjord.

Dating back to the 19th century…

the village is still alive with rorbuer and everything.

We spent some hours there just walking – enjoying the past – and the present.

We had our lunch overlooking the charming harbour. Contemplating the difference between our own comparatively easy lives and the every day struggle where the family’s breadwinner might be lost to the sea any day.

 

CFFC: Teal, Aqua, Turquoise…

 

For Cee today – these colours lead me to the sea…but also to a Bhutanese farmer’s kitchen!

Mountain lakes almost always have these hues of blue green. There are many minerals co-operating to make it work. A fascinating colour.
