Down by the river

0005

There is a lot of symbolism in the rivers and in life too
a great deal they have in common, perhaps more than we feel

We can sit passive on the sidelines and watch them rumble past us.
We can sit on the banks and hope for reward with our fly fishing.
We can go with the flow and hope we do not drown or get lost.
We can swim against the stream and enjoy the “the fight” or challenge.

There are lots of inspiring opportunities in rivers and in life too.

Here are 6 streams and rivers that have been inspiring to meet in 2013.

“Le Drake Noir”

Continuous changes

The edge of a very old and closed for years quarry – taken in the summer of 2013.

Often if we want to emphasize that something is unchangeable
then we say that it is as “set in stone” or “written in stone”
but actually it isn’t correct – everything undergoes continuous changes, even quarries.

Even because the stone always is broken by the last stroke
so it doesn’t mean that the first strokes was useless

Joyride out in the suburbs

1002

Mood at the forest of Marselisborg located very close to the 2nd largest danish city Aarhus.

A very cozy forest which almost extends slightly into the city from the south
there is a larger enclosure where various species of deer live “acclimatized”
in the sense that they are not completely wild – but not domesticated animals
they have become accustomed to people – walk, run and cycle past them at a distance.

A oasis for the animals, but also for many residents of the city of Aarhus and their children.

1004

1005

It is a very popular destination and idyllic for all as long as all respect each other
there are 2 times a year where you have to be extra careful
in the spring when female deer have very young fawn
and so in septemer october where the deer are in heat
at that time the deer bucks only have sex in their heads.

Weekly Photo Challenge “Joy

Watching birdies

1001

Taking a break from a bike ride in a hilly terrain
found a cozy bench at the edge of a “battlefield”
be understood a golf course
observing golfers might well be called “birdwatching”
they have a number of strokes per hole as standard
if they do one stroke less then it is called a birdie
if they need two strokes less then it is called an eagle
if they do three strokes less then it is called an albatross
if they need four strokes less then it is called a condor
pure birds talking
but if you have a stroke more so it is not called a seagull but a boogie.

Actually never played golf myself, enjoy bird watching but no “bird hunting”
but it is impressive many people who drop the complacent laziness
of chasing a small ball which they have shot away themselves.

Often the golf courses are located in really beautiful surroundings.

When the air fogged up

2346

There can be an awful lot in the air
love, for example,
but probably the most common, it is fog.

Fog can produce impulsive feelings in us too
causes the skin to react and be sensitive and cause blood to bubble slightly
this kind of thrill can be both enjoyable and frightening at the same time.

A thin grey fog hung over the city,
and the streets were very cold;
for summer was in England
*Joseph Rudyard Kipling – english (born in India) awarded writer*

Every time I meet fog, it reminds me of London
I know it isn’t fair, but I can’t help it
even if I really love to visit London

But honestly these foggy moments of 2013 aren’t from London.

Fog also reminds me of other things than London and Alfred Hitchcock.

2347 There is something relaxing at a foggy atmosphere.

Some few hazy moments of 2013.

Early winterly morning mood

2345

Cozy thursday or creepy thursday
pure foggy morning mood.

When I “at the dawn of time” learned to read, I found Alfred Hitchcock very inspiring
more than all the children’s books I got recommended by parents and teachers.

Seeing a murder on television can help work off one’s antagonisms.
and if you haven’t any antagonisms, the commercials will give you some“.
(Alfred Hitchcock)

Luck is everything – my good luck in life was to be a really frightened person
I’m fortunate to be a coward, to have a low threshold of fear,
because a hero couldn’t make a good suspense film
(Alfred Hitchcock)

Nowadays television doesn’t help in separating fiction and reality
commercials is considered being reality and the news is perceived as entertainment.

Wet danish christmas mood

2344

Danish atmosphere seen late tuesday afternoon the 24th.

In Denmark there’s always the expectation of a snowy Christmas Eve
in fact these expectations are more a hope
actually it happens only a few times each century
so instead of singing the Bing Crosby song “White Christmas”
so should the danes sing the Gene Kelly song “I’m singing in the rain”.

It’s a moment with lots of traditions and good intentions.

I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars
and open a jar of it every month
(Harlan Miller – english writer and artist, born in Yorkshire)

Just imagine if we humans could treat each other like this throughout the year.

I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six
my mother took me to see him in a department store
and he asked for my autograph

By the way what's wrong with rain..?

Happy Holidays, everyone…!!!
