Stavanger is not a big city compared to New York or London but it also has a lot to offer to its guests. One of them is the Three Swords, a famous tourist attraction located at Hafrsfjord. It’s just a 12-15 minute drive from Stavanger centre. The three big swords represents the three kings, King Harald Hårfagre and the two defeated kings. King Harald Hårfagre was the king who has gathered Norway into a kingdom.
This is my take on Photo 101‘s day seven challenge.
Day three’s Photo 101 assignment is Water and Orientation. Here’s my take on this task. This shot was taken in the Philippines last year. That’s my bf going back to the shore after a couple of hours snorkeling. I remember that the locals on that island were impressed because my bf didn’t care about swimming alone in the scorching heat of the sun. Hehe.. Anyway, for this shot I used my Sony Nex5 and used Lightroom to adjust the exposure.
For me a home is not necessarily the place where you’re born. Nor the place where you grew up to. But it’s a place that we feel safe and secured. A place that you can’t resist despite your hectic schedule and the distance. Home is where your family and the people who you really care about lives. Home is where your heart is.
For yesterday’s Photo 101 the theme is about home. This photo was taken back in 2010 in Sauda, located at a country side outside Stavanger Norway.
I made a promise to myself not to go to cafes anymore because it’s not practical. Every time I go to a cafe, I spend like at least 9 US dollars for a cup of Capuccino and a cookie. Well, the price is reasonable but it has become a habit. Whenever I’m out I would always drop by a cafe even my wallet is almost empty! So I have decided to only drop by cafes if I have extra money and if there’s a special occasion/event/happenings. Just like today, I went Wayne’s Coffee in Stavanger and rewarded myself a good cup of Capuccino and chocolate cookie because I’ve really been working hard the whole week and I’ve also been good in attending my Zumba and Core training classes despite the flu.
