Salt and pepper

95 002

The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea
*Isak Dinesen (aka Karen Blixen) – danish writer*

Sweat seems obvious magnetically attractive to anger and aggression
so these frustrations will leave the body along with sweating
so then our task is “just” to put something else in instead.

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play
You said that you’d never been
But all the things that you’ve seen
Will slowly fade away
(*Don’t look back in anger* written by Noel Callagher from the rock band Oasis)

Happy Hour

T 097

Early morning in the streets of Liverpool
morning has broken through
it is said that “the morning hour brings gold in the minds of our”
I guess that’s figuratively.

But who needs gold to be happy ..?

Bursting of illusions

96 001

Abandoned neglected village house that has seen better days.

An inspiring sight which allows the mind to fly a bit.

It is said that nothing is like in the good old days
perhaps the same goes with the good old adventures too.
Back in the good old days so the maid was sitting in the tower window and sighed
until the nice young man climbed up to “abduct” her with the risk of life and health.
Now a days there is made a safe scaffolding construction
and there is even a fire escape in reseve as extra-hedge.
Certainly a demand by the labor inspectorate, I guess.

Who says that the good days were not more cozy and charming ..?

Pure pleasure

T 084

Pure pleasure.

T 083

Give people pleasure.
the same pleasure they have
when they wake up from a nightmare
(Alfred Hitchcock – english iconic and highly influential film director and producer)

Pleasure it is to get a little more than expected
not necessarily to get much, just more than we thought.

The inspiration for these thoughts arised from the worth visiting blog “Ese’s Voice
Weekly Shoot’n Quote Challenge Theme “Pleasure“.

Attracted by the woman

T 080

Daily prompt “Teen Age Idol

Fascination can come from anywhere – and had many different characters
fascination can be both good and bad – depends on the nature
one of the more ultimate, it’s hero-worship – it is often without conditions
it can be very rewarding, but it can also be dangerous.

Has never been a “hero worshiping man” or boy for that matter
not because of megalomania, not at all
maybe it comes from upbringing, don’t know
there are lots of people that I admire and who have taught me an enormous amount
there have been plenty of ideals also called role models

But I do not believe in heroes such as concept
everyone has a downside (thankfully) also heroes
all could be having a bad day (thankfully) also heroes.
Heroes have a tendency to crack sooner or later
this isn’t always the hero or heroine’s sake.

No the photo at the top, it isn’t Suzi Quatro
but the young Suzi was a primary inspiration for the young very young black drake
she was 10 years older, but what does age when we talk inspiration
I played in a rock band along with 3 who were 5-7 years older
they were 17, 18 and 19, I looked like a 17 years old we didn’t tell how old I was
when we played at parties friday and saturday
people thought it was a fresh young man who only drank soda and didn’t drink beer.

At that time I was very attracted by Suzi Q and her energetic stage performances
My dream at that time – it was her drummer would be offered other challenges
so I could sit behind the drums and rock out at full speed.

Glow in the air

97 003

The large birch tree in my old parents garden, it changes mood after the light.

Glow can sometimes be peculiar light which appears in many disguises
source or energy can come not only from within but also from the surroundings
yeah quite chameleon-like.

T 052

Lancashire UK – a man-made “water steps” between a lake and a river.

Water can easily switch glow based on light, wind or temperature conditions.

T 070

From the streets close to Anfield Liverpool, just before home match.

People with glow.

T 051From the streets of Copenhagen, at least 5 different kinds of glow in one single moment.

I would rather be a superb meteor,
with every atom of me in magnificent glow,
than a sleepy and permanent planet
(Jack London – american novelist)

With the inspiration from Ailsa and her absolutly worth visting blog
Where’s my backpack?
this is my version of the travel theme this week “Glow“.

Return to sender

01 011

A mailbox from the royal danish postal service
ie no more, now it’s called the “Post Denmark” and is a semi-private business
by the way then letters, they are a dead end phenomenon
ousted by e-mail, mobil phones and everything else
people no longer writes letters to each other
even postcards are not as common as before.

The house behind the mailbox is actually where I was born many years ago
but that’s a whole other story.

Weekly Photo Challenge “Letters

07 001

The danish post office’s colors are red and yellow-orange
postal vehicles and postal bikes are yellow-orange
logo, postmen jackets, mailboxes and so on are red.

Unlike the good old days, so us who loved sending love letters to amazing girls
now we are considered to be living bog bodies
actually a shame, a handwritten letter, nothing is more intimate personalized.
