Enchanted Forest

This image was made in the early days of digital photography. My preferred camera was in for repair, I seem to remember that I had dropped it. I went for a long walk in a nearby forest. The walk afforded me some nice images, but when I saw this one on the minute Screen, I felt I had made a hit. I couldn’t wait to get home to see it on the big screen. I have wanted to post it for some while but couldn’t find it. Then the other day it popped up in one of my folders. I must go back and look at my camera settings and learn from it. I won’t be using the same camera. It was stolen when our house was burgled some years back

The Market

It is often said “All roads lead to Rome”
A good number of years ago we followed one of those many roads and got to Rome.
We traveled with my Board members so it could hardly be described as “Budget trip”.
From our Hotel Ponte Sisto we began to explore that ancient City. One of our walks took us to a Market close to the hotel. It was a busy place filled with people, both locals and tourists. I especially noticed this elderly Lady making her way with her modest purchases and wondered what she was going home to. Perhaps some shared room or maybe one of her favourite places for sleeping rough?
It is perhaps strange, but when I travel I become more aware of the people around me and begin to think about their background. Each of them on their own journey beginning as an innocent baby and finishing, who knows where and when? A journey filled with happy and sad moments. With success and failure?

Twosome

Until now the Danish winter has been relatively mild. Very little snow and some mornings with a white covering of frost covering the countryside. A few days ago was such a morning and we decided to go to the forest. By the time we had breakfasted and got ourselves ready, the frost on the trees had largely disappeared and only the undergrowth and the short grasses had retained the frost. It was a bright day with a blue sky and the forest was busy with people who had the same idea as we. This couple passed us while we were photographing.
We returned home refreshed and inspired.
