My daughter and I visited Stockholm during the last weekend
Before school and work started.
The sky was heavy with the promise of more snow.
The pastel buildings looked like cakes
Topped with icing.
(Look at the height of the city’s Christmas tree – 38 metres tall
And decorated with 5,000 lights!)
Fairy tale buildings
Brightened the gloomy sky;
And optimism was not lost
In the knee-deep snow!
(Not sure if that cyclist ever managed to cycle home though!)

It’s always fun finding
The quirky side to a new place.
Ericeira, a small coastal village in Portugal,
Blue me away with its lovely azure glass tiles
And hand-y door knobs.
Aren’t they just blue-tiful?

When the Observation Deck at the very top of the Rockefeller Center opened in 1933
I imagine it looked something like this…
Moody, Art Deco inspired and with glorious views.
I’ve manipulated this photo that I took in February of this year —
But left in the modern camera on the left as a way of connecting
The past of my imagination
With the reality of the present.
