Our Home

Earth is not just a planet. It is our home and our one and ONLY home in the universe. Therefore we should take good care of it because this is the only home we have. I don’t care if you have the largest mansion or if you are the richest man in the world. If you do not respect nature then I suggest that you find another planet to pollute!

The pictures below were taken on the 2nd day of Easter. Hubby, Zorro and I went to Kaland Austerheim to celebrate Easter. We were fortunate enough for the sunny weather during that weekend. A very good friend of mine visited too, so we had a wonderful Lenten season this year.

Then there came the mood breaker. When we were walking along the shore we found some plastic trash! There’s the plastic grocery bag, a plastic bottle, small hard plastic bits which I could not tell what and smaller plastic bags! Instead of just sitting and enjoying the view, I picked up the trash because I cannot take it and never would I let these wastes get back to the sea. It is just painful for me to imagine that animals can die because of these plastics that we have found.

Anyway, have a nice day and happy Earth day everyone!

Kaland Wonderland

The Garden
Untitled

Kaland is a small village located in Austrheim county, north for Bergen. I was here a couple of days ago to visit the bf’s parent. I’m so glad during our stay there because the weather’s great despite the bad forecast. And for a photography enthusiast like me it only means one thing, – great light.

For this shot I used my IPad Mini and then adjusted the exposure and brightness using the Lightroom App. To be honest, I still prefer the old way of taking photos- by using system/digital cameras. However it’s more convenient to use these gadgets because you have everything there (Camera, gallery and Lightroom App). No need to transfer the pics from the sd card to the pc.

Anyway, the bf’s dad’s garden is enormous and they did a very good job in landscaping. This shot with the table and benches is my favorite part of the garden.
