A world within a world

You could call the whole Haiti that – a world within the world. Yet this is a country with vast differences, the world you see solely depends on where you are. And I’m happy to have been to the Seguin area, and Park La Visite, a national park that’s just so… so… :

And Fondation Seguin definitely deserves a big THANKS for trying to protect this magical area, and for bringing me up there 🙂

Mixed feelings

Winter activities at Dombås in Norway
Ah, the moment I shot this was so sweet and I smile when I remember it. But it’s a memory with a price tag……
I paid 100 dollar to develop 24 pictures yesterday. I assure you it was the last time I brought films to a developer in Oslo.
But I can enjoy the feeling of holding the following picture in my hand when the chocolate abstinence kicks in. Yeah.

On the bright side – if I don’t tell anyone, nobody will yell at me….

I love winter

I’ve had the best weekend, out with the nature, playing in the snow… learning carving and cross-country skiing 😮 (I’m so proud of myself!) The sun was shining brightly. So much fun! It was great and added a whole new dimension, or perspective, to winter.

And I’m drowning in studies. But how’s your life? Feel free to share anything 😉

Winter perspective

the little girl – it was hard to tell if she was laughing or crying when on her way up again… then she did it again!

I have to constantly remind myself that winter is ‘not that bad’. Never mind that I haven’t seen the sun for at least a week – lots of white looks cool on pictures. It doesn’t matter that my feet are constantly wet and cold, because I get to switch shoes often. Waiting for the bus, that’s always delayed because of the weather, gives me time to think. And all that.

But it’s when I see children sliding down snowy hills I really start appreciating this season 🙂
