Freedom Tower views

During my recent trip to New York, the lovely Daryl from Out and About in New York

Graciously invited me to take photos from her offices way up high in the Freedom Tower.

And I got to meet a blogging friend in real life – always a treat!

Great view.jpg

The views were magnificent

And you could see the city and water reflecting back at you.

Underneath one large window, there was a lovely view

Of the southern pool in the 9/11 Memorial Plaza.

The water sparkled in the sunlight

And it was difficult to tell the trees

Apart from their shadows.

Oh, that golden light!

Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning

In order to capture the magical, golden sunburst

Of sunrise over the Manhattan skyline.

This week, it’s back to snow in Sweden.)

Spring walk

While I was in New Jersey, I met up with a friend to walk in a park.

According to his crystal ball, it was going to be a fine spring day.

Blossoms had already popped on the trees

Like petalled popcorn,

Gracefully weeping

Into the bowl of the river.

I even found the beautiful limbs of a tree

Embracing the one next to it —

Reminding us that nature is love.

The Twisted Pier

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!

While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.

One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore

With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.

I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground

In order to capture the twisted pier

And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.

New York, New York!

Travel is a way of keeping yourself humble;

Of opening up to new people and experiences —

Loveme.jpg

Of finding love and beauty

Everywhere in the world we live in.

I’m so lucky to be going back

To the vibrant city of New York.

I won’t be around until the end of next week —

Until then, take care!

Postcards from Dusseldorf

Just back from Dusseldorf in Germany

(We didn’t go to Brussels in the end).

After work, we walked along the Rhine,

Enjoying dramatic skies

And the ornamental trees along the river bank.

Spring was in full swing:

Isn’t this magnolia in full bloom just gorgeous!

Rainbows in the laundry room

A slightly different view of skies this week:

When the sun hits the laundry room windows

Just right

Rainbows explode in vibrant colours

And almost make me want to do the laundry!

(I’m off to Brussels for work so won’t be online that much —

See you in a week!)

Rolling hill skies

I’m off to visit my parents in England.

They live in a small village

Nestled at the foot of the rolling hills of the Downs.

Golden fields.jpg

For me, the golden fields

And wide open skies

Embody the beauty of the English countryside.

Blue swirls sky.jpg

And finding two horses nuzzling each other

Is just the cherry on top of the cake.

(I’ll be back in a week, but the Our World link will be up and running as usual on Monday evening.)

Can a dog smile?

It was a glorious winter day

With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.

That made me smile.

A long walk with friends

To chase

— That’s what made Simmie smile.

After two hours of running around

And enjoying the scenery —

We were all tired and happy.

(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left

With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)

Mist, reflecting

When I woke up this morning, it was very misty

With the sun struggling through foggy veils.

Long line.jpg

That reminded me of all the moments of joy

When we lived down by the lake

And I could step outside in my dressing gown

To enjoy the sky kissing the water.
