Corner view: Pondering

Whenever you're called on to make up your mind,
and you're hampered by not having any,
the best way to solve the dilemma, you'll find,
is simply by spinning a penny.
No -- not so that chance shall decide the affair
while you're passively standing there moping;
but the moment the penny is up in the air,
you suddenly know what you're hoping.

Sunday walk

Yesterday's walk in the woods made me think of the design and colors of Kaffe Fassatt :)

Wall update

A few weeks ago I posted a photo of a very green wall (the photo was taken end of August). These shots are from this week.

Have a great weekend.

Corner view: Holiday photos

September was holiday and my best holiday photos are from the lake district, Valle del Guadalhorce, in Málaga, Andalucía. We found a house, and if all paperwork, etc. fall into place will be moving there next Spring, Summer. Yay :)

Also in the park ...

I spotted this fellow on the same morning walk in the park as in my previous post. Actually, there were two, but I only managed to capture one of them at the time as they were chasing each other up and down the trees ... and very fast.

Have a great sunday.

Yellow and soup ...

These shots are from yesterday. In the morning I went for a walk in the park where I usually run to try to capture some of the beautiful autumn colors. It was cold, very cold, misty and a little sunny.
So a hot lentil soup with some spicy mixture to sprinkle on was perfect to get warm again. I used a recipe I found on a Danish blog kødfri fredag (meat free friday). What really made this soup was the sprinkle stuff of toasted mustard seeds, cumin seeds, chili flakes and chopped garlic.Yum!

Corner view: Green in Vienna

There is plenty of green in and around Vienna. What I especially like:
the public transport system. I don't miss a car here and it is cheap (at least compared to Copenhagen), easy access from the city to green areas and walking trails, farmer markets and even organic supermarkets, and finally the parks and the city's many trees and plants.

Sunday afternoon

at Am Himmel, “in heaven” in German, a green meadow on a plateau in the Vienna Woods. A wonderful way to spend a sunny October Sunday :)

Have a great weekend.

Corner view: Orange

My plan was to go to Naschmarkt yesterday to buy a big bunch of the beautiful Japanese lanterns and take some photos with a lot of beautiful orange in them, but the weather here is Vienna kept me indoor. It's so grey and dark and wet.

So instead ... a shot of another of my favorites, the buganvilla. I think it is very pretty to mix orange with pink.

Corner view is hosted by Ötli this week and next week, so for more about orange head over there.

Monday 4 October 2010


From my terrace in Málaga I have observed birds. Every afternoon a few, then more and more birds gather and then they sweep the lawns for ... worms, insects, seeds?
I really wanted to get some shots of them when they were taking off or landing, but they didn't come as I wanted them to.

Have a great start of the week. I'm back in Vienna now and I guess I will stay here all of October ...
