A stack of chairs drawing shadows on the ground - looking nearly real enough to sit on.

51 Photos - Autumn

Autumn is here to stay, once you share a bench with leaves dropping from trees instead of tourists!

51 Photos - Graphic

Once I read this weeks theme, I immediately knew what would fit this theme perfectly. While I am not a fan of modern architecture, now and then when seeing something for the first time it takes my breath away:

Vienna, Underground station Schottenring, connection from line U4 to U2.

51 Photos - Things I need for blogging

When I read this weeks theme I was kind of stumped! Even yesterday evening I complained to Gabi: How do I take a photo of my camera, my most important "help" for blogging!  Today I suddenly realized: The most important thing is my computer or laptop! (Aperol optional)

51 Photos - Shopping

The end of summer always turns out to be quite hectic and as I just spent a week in Grado with my painting group, I missed taking a photo for the last challenge. I did paint a market szene though, and this week a painting has to stand in for a photo (I count it as another joker):

More about this years successes and not so successfull paintings once I've managed to catch up with life again.

Two Gifts

Last week was a week of gifts, one given and another received.

The gift given was for a friend at work who retired and when asked what colors he liked he replied: green, blue, orange. Well, what is a quilter to do but make a green, blue and orange log cabin quilt. I hope it will give as much pleasure as I got from the gift received.

Unexpectedly these lovely flowers arrived at my desk:

I had made some enquiries to help find a rehab place for the mother of  a business partner and received these wonderfull flowers for that. I'm smiling all the time.

Oh, so lovely!
