Simple beauty. . .


"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. "

Franz Kafka

The colors of autumn warm my soul. If I didn't have a digital camera, I doubt I would have taken this photo. I am glad I did! It is even more colorful if you CLICK on it to enlarge.

And so should we be. Reminds of drawing with crayons of many colours - all coming from the left.

PS Thank you for the comments! The streets in the city centre of Bergen have traditionally always been cobbled, and now there is a determined policy to keep them so. Lots of streets have been opened up for new water and pipes and what-not, but all have received a new layer of cobble stones. It is more expensive to do, but virtually maintenance-free and better to watch than black asphalt.

I'm glad you like my frost picture - it shows that lighting very often is 3/4 of a picture.

The flower was not painted (thank you for the compliment - I can only draw with a ruler!), nor treated with a painting filter. However, the lighting was again very special. The rest is "ordinary" clean-up in Photoshop.

Even the weeds and wild flowers are painted in their Fall array.

The colors are amazing, Paulie. Great that nature can create all those colors at once & we can enjoy them.

So pretty and looking at it blown up, seems almost fake, the colors are so vibrant.

Have you checked out Scrapblog yet? It's free and I have been having a good time putting some old photos together for my Dad and Aunt. You might enjoy it with all the pictures that you take.

This is beautiful when enlarged so detailed, you must of figured out how to get them bigger.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
