Happy New year !

I wish you all a very New year!

I will leave this year behind with some quotes I can relate to and someone has worded them better than I could.

Here are some winter scenery ro celebrate the holiday season.

“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” —Paulo Coehlo

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” —Carl Bard

January 2022

New year is here, one moment of time is once again come and gone. New beginning or continuing of the same. For me the latter I think, not that much is going to change, not directly at least.

Looking into the future ?

I have three boys, all grown up, but my boys. They have lived near me most of the time. Now that is about to change.

One is moving about 600 kilometers away, so are my grandkids that have been living 200 meters from us are moving also, big change. They are not going to pop up for some cookies anymore. The chance to see them grow is changing. Time will tell how it going to workout.

One is going on this travels again, when he is coming back, if he is coming back is in the unknown category. He is drawn to South America, Asia direction. He is starting in Peru and then he goes where the mood takes him.

One is staying put, at least for the time being and if he moves it will be with on half a hours drive.

My boys

Changes, but not directly to me, but to the near and dear ones. I will for a time been continue to work for the county as housing counselor, helping people to find homes, stay in their homes and trying to sort out the financial problems they might be facing regarding their housing issues. I have been doing this for the past months, a new direction to me as I have always worked in the private sector in various office jobs.

Looking for a photo of us together was like looking for a needle in a haystack. There is literally none.

I do not often say much about myself in this blog, I post photos of the world I see and how I see it. Hoping that they tell the story. Like macro shots, well I am home, nothing much to do I will capture things near me. Summer photos, mostly from my summer home and the travels, not that many in the recent years. As I said, capturing what I see in the world surrounding me. I will continue doing the same thing. My life is not all that interesting, I do art, take photos and am happily married and occasionally see friends. Simple but happy life. Most of the time anyways!

Happy New Year

Happy New year to all my Blog friends. I filmed this fireworks at Kirkkonummi, Finland. Finland is having it’s 100 year birthday this year so even in our small community we started with a nice welcome to 2017! 100 years of Independence is something to celebrate.

The past year has been hard, so I put my faith on the hope that it can only be better this year! Happy New Year, dear friends!


New Year in Calancute, Goa

I usually do not write that much, but here are some photo’s taken at the beach in Calancute, Goa.

The beach was so full of Indians from the countryside, most had not seen the sea before, the joy they showed was so childlike. Tourist are a minority in this party even if there were plenty of us there also. The techno music came from every shack on the beach, different noice from all of them, you could hardly talk. There were beautiful bonfire’s on the beach and people were sending memory kite’s, we also tried, they looked beautiful in the dark sky. At midnight the fire works started and lasted for some time. Quite wonderful.

New Year

I have no skill to take photos of fireworks, but I was able to capture some shots that make good ” artsy photos” of light – well that what I  would like to think anyways
