A Knitted kind of Crazy

A Knitted kind of Crazy

I canít understand why people are frightened of new ideas. Iím frightened of the old ones. John Cage I think spring is on the way. We’ve got daylight a lot longer now, the sun is out more and the Crocus in full bloom. But yesterday it was actually snowing (!) when I was out walking. […]

Right Snow

Right Snow

You can have brilliant ideas, but if you canít get them across, your ideas wonít get you anywhere. Lee Iacocca There is snow covering the ground and the dangerous icy patches, right now. I took my camera out for snow watching. Related PostsGoing to the Ocean Introduction to the List Journal Project + a prompt […]

Make a Snowflake

Make a Snowflake

Invite your inner child out for a bit of winter crafting this week! When snow won’t come to you, you have to make your own snow! That’s the new iHanna saying around here. Or, even better put; when snow flakes out on you, you’d better create some snowflakes on your own! And you may quote […]

The Moment to Snap

The Moment to Snap

Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! […]

Thankful thought

Thankful thought

It’s been the iciest winter I’ve ever experienced. I don’t mind the snow, the cold, not even the darkness so much – but when the streets are covered in ice it is really difficult to walk anywhere, especially for old folks. Some days it feels risky just to step outside. Plus, I miss my bike […]

A very cute thief

A very cute thief

We feed the bird in their yellow little house, and this winter they are really needing some extra food because the snow have covered everything else for months. I like the snow, but I wouldn’t want to dig through it to find food. Neither does this cute fellow… He is really not welcome, because he […]

Winter is my favorite season

Winter is my favorite season

The streets are made of ice and the trees are still partly hidden in snow. Spring feels far away but when the sun comes out it makes everything a little brighter even when it is -14 degrees Celsius (6.8 Fahrenheit) outside. When I take my mittens off to snap a photo with my cell phone […]
