Mom’s yellow flowers

My mom says that these flowers almost always gets knocked down by wind and rain right after they bloom. I think she is right. This year it only took a few nights before most of them were closer to the ground than the sky. So glad I got this little collection of photos before that. It was rain in the air, and windy too, as I shot them. Guess I was right on time.

Yellow makes me happy.

Summer Vacation 2012 | getting there + day #1

For a couple of days now we have been enjoying time together with good old friends on the west coast of Norway. It’s good to be here where we used to live five years ago and just hang out with the people we miss and hold dear.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Tuesday and Wednesday, I’m letting the images do the talking, but if you want to read a few words you can jump over to my flickr account with a click:

Summer vacation is something really really nice. Makes you wanna smile all day long!

Weekend December Daily | The Photos

The 3 Advent stars in my windows made me smile this morning.

My December Daily album is slowly worked on when ever I can find a few spare moments. I’m feeling a little bit whiped out right now, but hoping a little sleep and a loong day at work tomorrow will get me back in the groove. ;)

I just wanted to share a few photos from the last few days. One of these days I’ll share the album as well, but I need some decent light and some time in the middle of the day to shot photos of the pages first. I think it is this that makes me love digi so much. But then I love the making of an album from scratch also, with traditional papers and glue.

Anyway, here the photos. Thanks for looking! (and if you want to read a little about the days, click the image and jump over to flickr to read), Saturday we baked and decorated gingerbread cookies, Sunday we went chasing snow and found it up high in the mountain:

Today I haven’t been snapping away like I did on Saturday and Sunday. But if you want to see what I see on a daily basis now in December keep an eye on my December Daily set at flickr.

Enjoy the Season!!

Hallo September!

Hello Fall | 1

I went for a little walk yesterday and brought my camera.

Hello Fall | 5

I’ve really not been okay saying farewell to summer, but now as September is here I feel that I’m ready to embrace the new season approaching. Yesterday I tried to find the beauty in the changes.

Hello Fall | 3

Hello Fall | 2

Hello Fall | 4

Thankfully it was a warm and sunshiny day, after so much rain in August it felt almost as a relief. I guess we have more rain coming, but just now I want to enjoy this new month and the new season. Hoping for good things to happen.

Thanks for looking, how is the season going at your place?

365 Photo Project – week 3/52

O.k. I admit it. I’ve been trying out a few different approaches on the 365-project side of things, and I haven’t been absolutely perfect in any of them. But I’ve still had some fun and learned a whole lot about me, photographing and blogging. So I’m not afraid to try it ONE MORE time ;) This time I’m using my handy with-me-to-almost-all-places-camera; my cell phone. It doesn’t take super good photos,  but this is about preserving memories from each day and not about capturing images for wall hanging…. or so I tell myself ;) I’m using the ShakeIt app for iPhone to turn my photos into Polaroid (mostly because it’s fun to shake the phone and for the most amazing sound it makes… hehe). To make the photos more alike (kind off), I’m planning to use this approach for the next year. I might change my mind later, but I can live with that. I’m kind of used to being me by now and I love to change it all up from time to time. So I’m not making any promises…

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the third week of the project – with photos and a few words:

out biking

~~~ 15/365 ~~~

He got to take his bike to school in the evening. A few parents gathered to help clean up the place after fall and winter. We call it dugnad. And there is usually some cake ;) (May 11th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Late night gaming

~~~ 16/365 ~~~

It was late before MT could play his online games. We had to clean and tidy up our house before our guests arrived. They came a quarter past midnight. MT greeted them by the door – so happy to see them. Then he went to sleep – seriously tired. (May 12th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Playing Catch the Ball

~~~ 17/365 ~~~

Enjoying company and the new football :D
We [finally] celebrated MT’s birthday with family and friends. (May 13th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stair case

~~~ 18/365 ~~~

A beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Relaxed and laid back after some really busy days. I even had time to play some outdoor sports with MT in the afternoon. Sweet! (May 14th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Double faced...

~~~ 19/365 ~~~

MT got bored today so we played a few card games in the afternoon. Too bad mummy won 3 of 4 of them. ;) (May 15th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Down memory line

~~~ 20/365 ~~~

We drove by my Grandparents old house today. I wanted to show MT where his great grandma lived when I was a kid. I have so many good memories from this place. It used to be ocher yellow and the garage is new. (The current house owners were looking at me standing by their driveway, so I only took a snapshot before we moved on.) Glad to have captured some memories anyway ;) (May 16th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Celebrating

~~~ 21/365 ~~~

Celebrating our national day. Great fun (no matter how grumpy he looks in the photo..)! MT loved being there with his class mates, after the procession there were games to play and ice cream to eat. (May 17th-2010)

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the second week of the project – with photos and a few words:

Sunflowers Growing Here

~~~ 8/365 ~~~

A while ago MT planted a few sunflower seeds. Finally we got them into proper pots. It’s still a while before we can plant them out. Wonder if they’ll survive… (May 4th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Splash

~~~ 9/365 ~~~

We had some time walking home from soccer practice. We went down to the lake. And MT got to throw a few stones in to the water – and I got to snap a few pictures. Loving the afternoon light. (May 5th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Youths, MT and a stave church

~~~ 10/365 ~~~

I only took one photo today. Or, honestly, I took a bunch but with my big camera… MT got to hang out with the youths tonight, he love to do that and the youths are so kind to him and lets him join them when playing games. Nice! (May 6th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

one hand

~~~ 11/365 ~~~

He was so proud of himself for only using one hand while riding his bike. I was more interesting in the sun rays and how his hand and they [almost] met…. (May 7th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old Blue

~~~ 12/365 ~~~

I went by to help my dad some more at the farm. This time I got the honor of driving our old blue ford. It has no windshield, so it was windy – but not as dusty as I thought it would be. While I was working the field I listened to a couple of podcast from my favorite scrapbook show: the paperclipping roundtable. Got to love multitasking work and hobby…. (May 8th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Detail; Ethiopian Folk Suit

~~~ 13/365 ~~~

We celebrated my nepiew’s Confirmation today. A beautiful day together with family. MT was proud to put on his new Ethiopian Folk Suit and told me: Now I feel like a real African. (May 9th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Truck Driving

~~~ 14/365 ~~~

We went to the farm to help with the farming again. MT was happy to bring the class teddy Oskar along. They even got to sit in his uncle’s truck. So much fun :D (May 10th-2010)
