a bit out of rhyth ...

this is a short summery of our family vacation this summer. it is not complete at all and i don't clame to tell you everything with those pictures. it is a little retrospective on our 10 days in the area of the south tirolian mountains, called the dolomites.
it is a wonderful corner in the heart of europe. exciting mountains, surprising history and very kind people. we all, the whole RN gang camped in one tent and we moved around in a wv transporter van. there was lots of laughter and many a discussion we had. we played games, mostly skypo "lisa-style" and there was an other tradition we enjoyed, joel and amos did a wonderful job in reading aloud to us. a fun detective story, "J is for judgment" by sue grafton. listening was super fun!

thank you kids for coming along!

the week through the lens

it has been on the back burner, i have not been taking a lot of photos for a while now, and that should change. every time, it touches me in a special way, as i wander and have the camera ready be it in the kitchen, or living room, or the garden... this enables me to see with new eyes and i like it.
we will see if it sticks, it is a start to a new friday review of what caught my eye. there is to be said, that i was inspired by erin boyle and her blog "reading my tea leaves". she does a wonderful job and it is so inspirational to have a look at her photos...


this is a special edition: the golden wedding of my parents!

:: 1. more than just fun, super exciting to get the flowers in order

:: 2. a little detail of the decoration in the former cow barn, which served as the celebration hall

the week through the lens

it has been on the back burner, i have not been taking a lot of photos for a while now, and that should change. so i put the "hand made" lens back on the camera body and got started this week. it touched me in a special way, as i wander and have the camera ready be it in the kitchen, or living room table... this enables me to see with new eyes and i like it. we will see if it sticks, it is a start to a new friday review of what caught my eye. there is to be said, that i was inspired by erin boyle and her blog "reading my tea leaves". she does a wonderful job and it is so inspirational to have a look at her photos...
