1.1.10









2010
It´s cold here, winter.
Not so much snow, but enough to ride the sledge and even ice on the lake to skate.

The cousins are still here. Noisy and wild, it´s nice.


The concept of gross national happiness, that is so sane. Would love to go there - Bhutan.

Deadline for the World Photography Awards is 4th January 2010.
Free to enter, prize $25,000 for professionals and $5,000 for amateurs.

Would you share where you got those brown boots? Very nice!

Fine Little Day said...

Meerkind. I shoot mostly with a Canon Eos 5D 24-70 mm 2,8 and a Ricoh GR.

Felicity, it´s not mine boots unfortunately. I would look in vintage stores to find similar.

So you say it's cold up there. I must mentally prepare myself for that, only two days left in the warmth of Marseille.

Lovely photos as always.

ohhhh love these images, especially the last one!
oh yes, bhutan is a mistery land for me, too, i've been wondering about it - how is it possible that something like this exists in this cruel world? ;)
have i wished you a wonderful year already? if not - hear my regards :)

You should read "The Geography of Bliss," which has a whole chapter on Bhutan. I wrote a review of this great book on my blog, www.photospoetryprose.blogspot.com if you are interested.
