Friday My Town: Water in Motion







A small waterfall contributing to soothing sounds
of Nature in our largest (and newest) cemetery.



The little lake, on this particular day, was NOT in motion…

Friday My Town: Fire, Smoke, Steam

which now serve as exhibition hall for trade fairs etc.

So I had to dig deep into my archives for this theme…
I wonder what others did? Find out at FMTSO!

Leaves for Leontien


For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.

~ Edwin Way Teale ~


Scrolling through the Google Reader app on my phone this morning, I kept noticing “Leaves for Leontien” popping up on several of the blogs I’m following. I have not been following Leontien’s battle with cancer myself, but I thought I’d contribute to the collection of Leaves anyway…

Friday My Town: Someplace Yummy

In Sweden we like “fika”, which means coffee or tea, usually with something sweet, like cakes or biscuits…


Summer café in the Open Air Museum park (July).



Bookshop café in the town centre.

Friday My Town – Skylines

“Do you see prairies,  sky scrapers or something in between when you view your skyline?”


The panorama view above is from today – a skyline I get to look at quite often, walking to/from the supermarket.

The closest I come to seeing a ‘prairie’ would be the football field on one side of my building, I suppose – and maybe the tall chimney sticking up may count as sky-scraper?


▲ Misty morning today when I set off out...

▼ Below is the view as I approached home again on my way back from the supermarket. (I chose to go round in a circle today, one way there, and another way back.)


Having a chimney on the horizon might not seem like a lot of fun – but it can be! (a winter collage from 2010) ▼

Another of my nearby skylines consists of the tall trees in an old cemetery:


From my kitchen window, the skyline looks different depending on the time of year ▼


In the winter, the view includes buildings that are hidden from me in the summer. Although I prefer the greens of summer … I also like it that I see farther in the winter! ▼

Ruby Tuesday: Autumn Tree


Somehow the view in the park is not quite the same since they cut down a lot of the “background” trees…


To be fair, though, photos from previous years were also taken from another angle:
